Little Bertha, the 14 months old daughter of Henry and Emma Brown, died last Tuesday, June 24, from the effects of swallowing a loaded cartridge.

Little Bertha was a sweet babe, and the home will be dark and lonely for many a day, but remember, loved ones, that she was too frail a flower for this cold world, and Bertha has gone to bloom in the sunshine of Heaven.
