DEATH AT HAMLET
On last Wednesday God in His infinite wisdom saw fit to remove from our home and this earthly sphere, my sister, Nita Shaw. Although we kept her but ten short days we loved her and death alone could break the sacred tie that bound her to us. May that angel child be as a magnet to draw us near Him who doeth all things wisely.
