Infant Dies

Information reaches us that on Friday last, on the place of Mr. Aub Camp, in this county, a little negro girl about six years of age was left to mind a baby sister while the mother went to the well for water. The mother staying some little time, and the baby fretting, the girl took a vial of laudanum from the shelf and made the baby drink it, from the effects of which it died in a very short while. It is supposed that the girl had seen her mother give the baby laudanum to quiet it, and unconscious of its deadly effects, had concluded to do likewise.óCedartown Advertiser.
