The Grim Reaper Comes In The Most Cruel Way With A Suddenness That Appals a Whole Community
Two Little Children are the Victims
There occured last Friday at the home of C H Gwinn, nine miles south of Wellington, a tragedy which has no paralell in regard to its depth of awfulness in this county.
Harvey age 9 and Earnest age 6, the youngest children of the Gwinn family were burned to death in a fire which destroyed the smoke house and came near catching the home.
The bodies were recovered and laying side by side in a single casket they were enterred at the cemetery just north of the Arlie Post Office.
