An Infant Smothered- Last Saturday p. m. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Doxsie of Roxand township started for this village to make a visit at Mr. Doxsie's father's. On arriving here they were horrified to discover that their 8-month old child, which Mrs. D. had carried comfortably wrapped up was dead. It is supposed the babe was smothered to death, although this seems improbable, as the little one nursed when a mile and a half from town. The body was warm when unwrapped and medical aid was speedily summoned, but all efforts to resuscitate it were unavailing.
