Death of Little Willie Shelman.

Willie Dallas, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. S. Shelman, died on Sunday night last at 12 o’clock. She was five years, four months and ten days old, and the only child.

The event cast a gloom over a large circle who admired her for her bright, interesting ways and sunny disposition.

The origin of her sickness was thought to be a fall she received at a children’s party. She lingered amid great pain and suffering from the 10th of May to her death, but received the untiring, unceasing care and ministrations of her parents, besides numerous other kind friends. “Death loves a shining mark,” though, and her little soul, unspotted, was transported to the kingdom of its Maker. At 5 o’clock Monday afternoon the funeral services took place from the Methodist church, conducted by Rev. H. J. Ellis. An unusually large concourse attended both the funeral service and burial.
