The infant child of the late Mrs. Ruff was buried Monday morning.

The little infant child of Mrs. Ruff (lately deceased) who had for weeks endured pitiful sufferings, at the home of Mr. J. T. Bradley, passed to its bright and peaceful home on high last Sunday evening. Its death had been hourly anticipated and to the writers personal knowledge it can be truly said of the noble hearted, Christian ladies (humanity's best friend, the world over, in the hour of pain and affliction) that too much praise cannot be accorded them for their unselfish and devoted attendance upon the little sufferer, day after day, and night after night.
