but it was not thought she was in a
serious condition until Saturday,
when she was taken to the Lexington

which together with her weakened
condition, brought death in its wake.
The little girl was one of the most
lovable girls in the city, the light of
her parents household, and her sud
den death and untimely passing away
will leave an aching void in their
hearts and a vacant place in the
home. She was of a bright, sunny
disposition, and made friends of
everyone. The sympathy of the com
munity goes out to the parents in
their affliction. She is survived be

Restrictions on importations of po

after July 1 under an amendment to

their rape of the bells by issuing a

started in 1869, with a capital of
