In Amite county, Miss., on the morning of January 12th, 1888, RUSSEL D., son of Mr. and Mrs. N. A. Travis, aged 12 years and 5 days.
He was a member of the Grange Hall Sunday school on Tickfaw. His affliction was erysipelas of the face, and lasted but a few days.—The funeral services were conducted by the writer at the family cemetery, after which the body was consigned to the grave, to await the resurrection. May the parents be comforted with the thought that, though he cannot return to them, they can go to him. The Lord bless them and their remaining children. T. C. SCHILLING.
