The spirit of Alta Mildred Foster, infant daughter of Mr. John and Mrs. Ella Foster, took its flight across the dark waters of death to the bright hereafter on Tuesday, March 22nd, aged seven months, eleven days.

Fair as a lily was her face, beautiful to look upon her countenance, beaming with intellect—a face not to be soon forgotten by those who looked upon it. Such a loving, amiable and bright little babe is a benediction to any home. I daresay if she could have talked she would have told her parents not to grieve for her, for she was going to where there is no sickness and death could never enter. She seldom moaned during the three weeks of agony she endured—a practiced illustration of patience for older ones to behold. Grieving parents, don’t think of her as being dead, for she is only asleep in Jesus, awaiting to welcome you in that better land, another link in that chain that binds you to heaven. Her remains were laid to rest in Oakland cemetery. The bereaved parents have the deepest sympathy of the entire community, for we all loved little Alta.—A Friend.
