A Sad Death.

Again unwelcome Death has entered and borne away the treasure of a household.  On last Saturday, at fifteen minutes past twelve o’clock, little Annie, the ten year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Ford breathed her last.  She has been sick for about two weeks with gastric fever, but bore her severest sufferings with patient endurance and true Christian fortitude.

Truly “death loves a shining mark” and in seeking among earth’s purest and brightest gems could hardly have found one more fit than she to shine in that better kingdom, into which Christ has said, “Suffer the children to come.”

Little Annie, with her gentle and lovable disposition, her quiet, winning manners, quickly won the affections of those around her.  As a pupil she was a model for older ones than she – ever respectful to teacher, faithful to every duty and quick to correct any fault that she might have unintentionally committed.  The transplanting of this bright bud into Christ’s Garden would make inconsolably desolate the fireside of the home circle were it not for the blessed assurance that it blossoms forth into everlasting beauty there.
