'Tis sad, dear parents bowed and
To lose a loved and priceless gem;
To have death pluck your fairest
And leave you but the broken
Your darling one lies cold and
But free from earthly pain;

To sweetly bloom in heaven's
Folded are the little fingers;
Closed the sweet and loving eyes;
God transplanted little Belva,
Now she blooms in Paradise.

Mr. Eichenberger had business
at Ft. Smith Saturday.
Messrs. Harris and McDonald
in the spring went security for a
man named C. L. Chapman, so
that he could borrow $150 from
