An Empty Cradle.

Died, in Rome Ga., on Monday night, March 17th, the infant daughter of Rev. and Mrs. R. B. Headden, age about two and one half months. The remains were brought to Cartersville last Wednesday and interred in our city cemetery. Services were held at the residence of Mrs. S. F. Brame, on Bartow street, conducted by Rev. G. A. Nunnally, of Rome, assisted by Rev. F. M. Daniel of the First Baptist church at this place. The grief stricken parents were met here by loving friends, and their baby was tenderly laid to rest beside her little sister, who had gone before. The mother will miss the coo and call of her baby. The little pink fingers will no more creep up and nestle on her bosom. The cradle will be still. But then it is free from suffering. It will be parched no more by fever. It is safe in the arms of Jesus. It only makes one more tie that unites Time and Eternity. Sooner or later the veil will be rent, and there will be a grand re-union on the other shore.

“There’s pain and sorrow on life’s road,
But soon ‘twill lead thee to thy God.”
