The County sites are back up. And here I was thinking no one ever uses them since Monica and Justin are the only contributors. But lo and behold, they are out there. Who knew.

The funeral of Mr. Herman Schmitt's child came off yesterday at 3 p.m. It was attended by many persons in carriages, vehicles, &c. The many friends of this bereaved family deeply sympathized with them in the loss they have sustained, but what can sympathy do in re____ting the hearts' tendrils that have been rudely severed. But the baby is only planted; it shall spring again into an improved life.
