Mrs. Hattie Thornhill received a telegram last wednesday evening week that the Crossley baby was not expected to live. Mrs. Crossley and the children are visiting in Kansas City. Mr. Crossley who was working in Ashland was notified and left for Kansas City Thursday morning but during that day another telegram from Mrs. Crossley stated that the baby had died and that the older child was also not expected to live. Both children were suffering from pneumonia. At this writing Tuesday the older child is recovering but Mr. Crossley is still detained in Kansas City at its bedside. Mr. and Mrs. Crossley have the sincere sympathy of Protection friends in their bereavement.
