Died, at the home of her parents
in this city, Nellie, the 3-months'-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Julius
Dahl, death resulting from spinal
meningitis, with which the little one
had been suffering for nine days.
The little sufferer was patient,
although in pain, and the death was
simply a passing into the land of
dreams, with a pleasant smile that
lightened up the countenance with a
glow that is only lent by the shadow
of the gates ajar.
The funeral was held at the house
this afternoon, Rev. H. R. McKee,
pastor of the local Baptist church,
The death of the little girl takes
from a happy home a flower that
was greatly cherished and leaves an
aching void in the heart of loving
parents that only time, the great
healer, can take away.
Loving hands tenderly laid the
little form to rest, the bright sky and
the rustling of the wind among the
trees being in true accord with the
solemn scene. Yet above all came
the comforting thought that the
gentile child was spared earth's
care and sorrows, that her memory

loved ones to the brighter home

The Queerest Salad.
A gourmet as he mixed a salad of
chicory said: "The world's queerest
salad, and possibly its most delielous
one, Is eaten by the Inoits of northwest
Greenland. It is a salad of undigested
moss from the stomach of a fresh
killed reindeer, a bitter, sharp, stim
ulating salad, as good for the diges
tion as an electrical massage. The
Inoits live almost exclusively on fish
hence salads are a favorite dish with
them. But no salad in their minds
compares with that which they wrest
from the slaughtered reindeer. They
say this salad is crisper, tenderer and
more appetizing than any other, and
they say it wards off indigestion. They
fight for it, they spend their last penny
on it, quite as the Indians do with

To see New York city from the Pali

selves. One of the most astonishing
facts concerning .these towering
masses of grandeur is that they lie so

In Harper's Magazine. To come upon
the Palisades from the rear at night
Is like stepping to the edge of the

lies low beyond as If It were only
a part of space, its countless lights
