TRAGIC DEATH OF CHILD.
Little Mary Houseal Fulenwider Dies (
of Phosphorus Poisoning From
Mary Housea,1 Fulenwider, the
daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Edward Ful- a
enwider, was called home on Wednes
day morning at about 11.30 o'clock, C
after a sojourn upon earth of only two I
years and ten days.
Litle Mary Houseal's death was <
peculiarly sad, being the result of a
phosphorus poisoning from eating 3
matches. She was a bright child, and
the joy of a happy home, and her
taking away cast a pall of grief upon
the entire community.
The little girl had gone across the
street from the Lutheran parsonage
of the Church of the Redeemer, of'
which her father is pastor, to the
home of a neighbor, Mrs. Willie Ruff, I
where she was beloved, and where
she was wont to spend a great deal of
her time, loving all the members of
the family In this home. She was
playing around in the sitting room,
happy in health and in the very joy
of existence. Mrs. Ruff and Miss Edith 1
Henderson, who were at home at the
time, were called from the room by 1
ome household duties. When Miss C
Henderson returned shortly after
warGs she found that the child was!i
nor in the room where she h;.d been C
left. Becoming alarmed, she imin.ed
iately ran across the street to Dr. Ful
enwider's residence to see if Mary I
ouseal had gone home. ThB child C
was not at home, and Miss Henderson
and Mrs. Fulenwider started back '
across the street in search of her., C
While crossing the road she was seen
through the window in another room, C
apparentIly happy and enjoying her
self, and Mrs. Fulenwider returned
home. Miss Henderson went to her,
and found that she was on a chair, and
was eating matches which were on a,
high bureau, and which she had climb
ed upon the chair to reach. '
Horror-stricken, Miss Henderson
immediately carried the little girl V
home, and Dr. W. G. Houseal, for
whom the child was named, was im
mediately summoned. For nearly
three hours he struggled with death,
bringing to bear ail the medic.l
science with which this eminent phy
sician always fights ha-d and yet har
ler and harder against the grim mon
ster, and in addition the love which C
be bore the child whose life was hang
Ing in the balance, with the scales C
heaily and . too heavily weighted
against her. Human 'skill could ac- 0
:omplish nothing. The mission of the c
ittle girl on earth had been accom- a
lished, and she was taken from her
arthly parents back to the Father
who had sent her here.
Dr. Houseal had some hopes at one
:ime of saving her life. It was evi
lent that she 'had eaten the heads off
tout 20 matches, and had eaten parts
>f the stems of several, which practi
ally put her beyond human skill, but t]
ith the herculean efforts which were '1
nade there was one time when the s
spark of hope glimmered, though evert
s faintly. But it soon faded and was il
lost, and in the glory of a bright
Southern winter day, at near the noon- f
tide, the little soul was taken in t
charge by the messenger of God and .t
wafted to the realms of eternal light, a
In the shadow of the deep sorrow t'
through which they walk the bereav- i:
ed parents have the deep and heart- t
felt sympathy not only of this entirea
community, but of hundreds of people t'
throughout the South who know them. a
Dr. Fulenwider 'has been in Newberry a
as pastor of the Lutheran Church of
the Redeemer for about three years, b
Mary Houseal having been born not
long after his arrivaa here. He came
to Newberry from North Carolina, his
native State. As pastor of the college
church, and one of the largest church
s in the United Synod of the South,
and as an able and zealous minister
of the gospel, he is widely known, and
!rom hundreds of towns and cities in
the Southland today there are cur
rents of sympathy flowing. ' h
Mrs. Ruff and Miss Henderson and ,5
the mem?bers of the household where d
the little chikd ate the poison, loved a
Mary Houseal as only' good womens
can love a loveable child, and their a
grief is second only to that of the par- d
ents in that parent love can not be 1,
equalled. No human foresight could s
have prevented the tragedy, but their a
grief is intensified by the fact that it
happened in their home.
To the bereaved parents, and to all
those who mourn today, The Herald
and News would extend its deepest
sympathy. It is the common lot of t
humanity at some time and of most S
of us often to suffer. But the God b
of us all doeth all things well. That c
much we know. And the fiowers which Y
were yesterday afternoon strewn upon I
.ittle Mary Housedl's grave will, un- ~
der the divine dispensation, make r
fragrant pathways in life which will ~
have their part In the great plan of the. a
The funeral services were at the
home at 4 o'clock yesterday after- I
noon, conducted by Dr. A. 'J. Bowers, e
assisted by the Rev. G. P. Voight. Fol
