DIED, On the 3d. inst. Perry, infant son of Wm. and Cordelia Hutchinson, aged 9 months, and 15 days.  Suddenly, the angel reaper gathered this flower, just in the harvest time.  His earthly mission was done.  He started waves of paternal love that follow him to the other shore.  His short life called forth sympathies and cares which now lead the thoughts of friends away to that rest above.  The little body was borne to the grave at Mt. Pleasant church, amid many sympathizing friends.  << scripture omitted >>

A Sunday School was organized at the Junction School House last Sunday afternoon.  G.W. Baker was elected Superintendent and Treasurer, and Mrs. Emily Wilkinson as Assistant Superintendent and Secretary.  The teachers are:  E. Brooks, Mary Albert, Albert Swanger, Henry Bistline, Miss Emma Fry, Jane Conway, Miss Lizzie Meredith, Miss Allie Breckbill, Miss Emma Weiser, and Henry Breckbill.  Mr. D.B. Sipe was elected Chorister.  There were present eighty-seven scholars, teachers and officers, and a number of visitors.  The school is a success from the beginning.

DIED, On the 5th. inst., of brain disease, Nellie, daughter of B.D.  and Kate Sipe, in the sixth year of her age.  Nellie was an active child;  her mental growth being apparently to rapid for her physical strength.  Her last sickness was such as to make her appear of a very different disposition from her natural temperament.  Before she became unconscious -- in which state she lingered several days -- she was asked if she wanted to be one of Jesus' lambs, and she nodded her assent.  She is gone.  A vacant place in the home circle, her closed books and folded garments, and the sorrow-stricken parents with sympathizing friends, this is the earthward side.  An opening bud held in an angel's gentle fingers, the smile of one who says "suffer little children to come unto me" -- this is a faint glimpse of the heavenward side.  The funeral services at Mr. Sipe's residence were largely attended, and Prof. H.H. Johnson assisted by a choir, rendered very appropriate music.  The remains rest in Oakland Cemetery.

A number of new and splendid monuments are being erected in Oakland Cemetery.  Those to the graves of Mr. William Hawk and David Anderson, are among the last put up.  Elick Ralston, the colored man of Shelby, died at the Infirmary and was buried last Sunday.
