l( those attending them, and it Is
a source of regret to a large
number, not alone the juembers
of hi? own church, that thpy are

The little l-year-ohl child of
A. McCrary this morning got hold
of a can in which kerosine was
kept and drank a quantity of the
liquid before the mother could
interfere or prevent it. The little

attention was given the little suf

notified Mr. McCrary, who keeps
the herd of town cows on the bar,
and he hurried to the physician's
office. Mrs. McCrary was very
much concerned, as she did not
know what quantity of oil was in
the can and she feared the child
was badly poisoned. The doctor
reassured her and thought the

couple of swallows, and it is bo
lievod that it will soon be all right
