Corinne Metcalf, daughter of Congressman and Mrs. Victor H. Metcalf, died at 9 o'clock to-night at the residence of the child's grandmother, Mrs. Emily B. Nicholson. 1321 Linden street. The little girl was 10 years of age. For ten days her condition had been critical, typhoid fever having set in and then spinal meningitis. The father and mother, who were In Washington when the child was taken sick, were summoned home as soon as her condition seemed serious. She had been left here when they went East, as It was believed that she would be better off at home than in a hotel at the national capital. Mrs. Metcalf returned home a week ago and Congressman Metcalf arrived a day later, In time to see his only daughter before life had fled. For five days the little girl has been in a comatose condition, and the attending physicians were unable to do anything more than to barely keep the spark of life flickering-. The blow is a severe one to the family. The child was a great favorite. She was of a bright and happy disposition and charmed all with whom she came in contact. Her illness has been a great strain upon her parents, who have been constantly at her bedside watching the spark of life grow fainter and fainter to the end.
