In the city on yesterday afternoon, of diptheria, Etta, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lesher, aged 5 years.

Funeral to-day at 2 p.m. from residence.

Little Etta sleeps, but not forever. She will wake in that bright land, where sorrow never comes, where Jesus, who has said "Suffer little childre to come unto me" stands ready to welcome her.
