A little infant of Radley Barnes' died last week.


Strange Fatality
Last Fall Mr. William Barnes moved his family from Mississippi to this county to find a climate more congenial to their failing health.
He located on Mr. Robert McKee's farm, near Edward's mill, where he was to make a crop this year. A strange fatality seems to have overtaken the family, for since January 29th, Mr. Barnes has buried his three sons and is now himself quite sick.
They have the sympathy of the entire community.
