As a Result of Drinking Lye Water Recently

Ruth, the two-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Casper WOLF, of East Main Street, died last night at 12:30, as a result of drinking lye water, which she found in a bottle at the residence of her parents some few days ago.

The little girl's throat was burned severely by the lye and had been suffering from excruiating pains since she obtained it.

She was a very bright little girl, and altho she was only two years of age, she had a wide circle of friends who will be grieved at the news of her death.

No funeral arrangements have been made.
