    • Death as Result of Drinking Lye

      We sincerely regret to have to report the death of Annie Edna, third daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Chas. Cassady, Blenheim, which sad event took place yesterday. The child was nearing her fourth birthday and the case is all the more interesting from the heroic fight made a year ago last May to overcome the evil effects of drinking a solution of Gillett's lye. The little one suffered excruciating pain at the time and for weeks her life was despaired of. In fact she never fully recovered and before her death, though apparently not suffering much, if any, she was reduced in flesh to a mere skeleton. The funeral takes place to Ayr cemetery tomorrow afternoon and much sympathy will be extended to the bereaved family.
