Last Saturday MR. and MRS. WILBUR ALLEN, of Lamoni, started to Mt. Ayr, to spend the day with friends, taking their three-months-old daughter, CHARLOTTE, the little one being in apparent good health when they left home, but when they reached Mt. Ayr it was found the babe was dead in its mother's arms, without the parents knowing it was ill.Physicians were at once called, but the baby was dead, a blood clot on its brain being assigned as the cause of its death.The bereaved parents have the sympathy of many friends in their hour of sorrow.
