A Bright Infant.

In noticing the several deaths of children that occurred in the community in our last week’s issue we inadvertently overlooked that of the little son of Mr. Charles Collins. This was a peculiarly sad death. The mother an amiable, much beloved lady, died about a year ago, at a time when life was a blissful dream, opening up before her young vision in a glorious panorama, when the fell reaper blighted the realization, and a husband was left to mourn the loss of a loved companion and a little one was deprived of a mother’s love, care and training.

This babe was the father’s pride and hope and daily thought, and had every care of parent and other kindred and gave promise of buoyant life, health and growth, when several weeks ago it contracted pneumonia in some way, and after a short spell, which was supplemented by cholera infantum it died at 11 months of age. Abda Bradley Collins was an unusually bright child. His death was a sad blow to his father, who has the sympathy of all in his bereavement.
