Helen, the little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Campbell was taken ill last Friday [September 9, 1910] and in a few hours had passed away in spite of every effort that could be used to relieve her. The funeral was held Sunday the interment being in the family lot at the Valley cemetery.

The death of little children is always one of the saddest and when it came as sudden like this it seems doubly so. The little one was the idol of everyone who knew her, her sweet winsome ways making her a general favorite, and the deeply bereaved parents are not alone in their sorrow.
