She was not feeling well and did not think it was necessary to consult a doctor. Her uncle called to see her on Friday evening and noting her changed appearance he at once called in a doctor who pronounced it a case of acute peritonitis and ordered her removed to the hospital. She did not recover consciousness. Her mother and uncle were with her when she died.
She was a pretty girl and possessed a winsome disposition. Her parents are much distressed on account of the circumstances and the suddenness of her death. The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon. Services will be conducted at the house at 2 o’clock by Rev. James Moore. Interment will be in Hamtown Cemetery.
