It is with deep regret that the Advocate is called upon this week to chronicle the death of little Eva Elliott, the eight-year-old daughter, of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Elliott, which occurred this afternoon at 2:15 o'clock. The little child was taken sick a week ago and all that loving mother hands and medical skill could do for the little innocent one was done, but proved of no avail. This morning Eva seemed much improved and it was thought she was on the road to recovery, but about noon she had a relapse and steadily grew worse and at the time stated above, peacefully passed away. Eva was a bright little girl and her death is a sad blow to her fond parents who in this time of sorrow, have the heartfelt sympathy of all.
