Death of an Infant.

Little Marion Veach, the baby girl of Col. And Mrs. George A. Veach, died at their home in Adairsville Tuesday morning at 11 o’clock. She was one year and two months old, and was attacked Friday night with cholera infantum and died with a brain complication. The interment took place yesterday morning at 10 o’clock at East View.

“Doings in Bartow—Adairsville.”

Many hearts were made sad indeed when it was known over the town on last Tuesday, the 22nd, that the death angel had snatched from fond and loving parents the dear little Marian Vivion Veach. Just as a tiny vine would cling to some support had she twined herself about all who knew her; so mild and gentle and now we are left to wonder, why was it done? But the parents have a bright star shining in the far away to bind them closer to that fair summer land. And when we laid the dear little body beneath the sod at East View we knew that the dear Lord had only sent her to brighten the earth for a short season, and that she was too pure to stay her until she tasted of the bitter part of life, but was spared that and allowed to taste of its joys. The bereaved ones have the deepest sympathy of all.
