Little Aleen Mildred Watson.
Just at the dawn of day on
October 30, the spirit of little
Aleen Mildred, youngestchild of
Mr. and Mrs. William Watson,
of near Fairview church in An.
derson county, burst the prison
bars of life and flew away to
the Heavenly Mansions to d well
forever with her Lord. Aleen
was a swoot, beautiful little
child and the idol of her homo.
Just before she died she said to
her mother, "Mama, I am cold"
Then she said, "Mania, I am
going away," and her little
spirit went away. The funeral
was held at Fairview churcl on
31st, of October by Rev. I). W.
liott, and amid tears and sobs
we laid her little body away to
rest. till the morning of the res
urection. Little Aleen was two
years old in July last. She was
too pure for earth and God our
Father called her homo. Jesus
put his arms around little chil
dren while He was here upon
earth and blessed them, and(] Io!
loves them none the less now
that He is in Heaven. H.
