Miss Daisy Janes who died at her father’s residence in the Valley Hill neighborhood was buried at St. Rose Cemetery last Monday.  We knew her well in her childhood days and a more amiable and sprightly child we seldom met, and as we write we feel that the good Lord had greater use for her than to leave her to suffer and fade away like a wilted blossom in the glowing sun, blooming amid thorns and thistles.  She has been a patient sufferer for seven long months but she now sleeps the sleep that knows no waking.  She leaves father and mother, three sisters and three brothers to weep o’er her bier but their sorrow not as without hope.
