Frances Rhodes

 Only child of Bro. C. B. Rhodes and wife, died on Sunday evening, March 29, after a two weeks sickness. She was the only one left of their six children and was the object of love and pride of parents, friends, and neighbors.
Some do grow old but leave no mark.
Such leave the world still in the dark;
This litttle one passed young away,
But what a light was her short stay;
The one who met with that sweet child
Although he might be reviled,
Would feel longing quite immense
For purity and innocence.
