DIED - Shearer, in this precinct, February 13, 1888 of collapse of the lungs.  Eltie Shearer, aged 4 yrs. and 10 mos.  The tender Shepherd sent his angel reaper to the home of R.D. & Mellie Shearer and claimed little Eltie, their eldest child. After a brief illness the sweet darling closed his eyes upon the sorrows of earth, to open them upon the joys of heaven.  Though brief his stay, how well he had learned ache when he went away!  Yet we know that our Father is too wise to err, too good to be unkind, and that he doeth all things well; there is balm for all our wounds, and peace for the sorrows that trouble us.
