“Doings in Bartow--Kingston.”

Little Tymon, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Stockman, died in Kingston, at 11 a. m., July 17 th. He lacked a few months of being 17 years old; was a great curiosity, had no bones in his body; had never set up; could not help himself a particle; all his food had to be chewed for him. Water and all liquids had to be given with a spoon; had no mind, had never spoken a word. He could cry and make a fuss when sick or disturbed; had a well shaped head. His good mother waited on him constantly for more than 16 years, and all his exercises was the motion of his crib, which was constant when he was awake, proving the assertion that there is nothing greater than a mother’s love. All sympathize with the parents, but consider, that it was God’s mercy to take the little unfortunate one to himself.
