From Fountain
Death has been busy among the little ones in our midst recently. Little Alice C., only child of George and Emma McEwen, aged 9 months and 23 days, died a short time ago, followed in a very few days by the death of Freddie, youngest child of J.T. and Fannie Meigell aged 10 months and 22 days. Mr. Meigell is a brother of Mrs. McEwen. Today (the 21st) Dena, youngest child of Peter and Dena Buck, was borne to our fast-filling cemetery. Her age was 7 months and 20 days. The disease in all these cases was cholera infantum. Three little graves on a hill, three mourning mothers, sitting in their desolate homes, with empty arms, weeping, like Rachael of old, for their children, "because they are not."
