Miss Emma, the youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs George Huffman, died quite suddenly at their home near town last Saturday morning. The news came as a shock to the friends and schoolmates of the young girl growing into womanhood, who had been attending school in town, and who had mingled with companions on the street only a day or two before. Death resulted from hemorrhage of the brain, and she expired just as a physician reached their home. She had not been feeling well for a day or two, and last Saturday morning after she had risen and came down to breakfast, she became suddenly ill, and began to sink rapidly and passed away just as the doctor arrived. She was a general favorite among her companions,--a bright prepossessing young girl. She was the youngest of the family, and was born on the old homestead five miles southeast of town, and was sixteen years, three months and four days old. The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Monday at 1 p.m., the building being filled with friends. Her teachers and schoolmates attended the funeral in a body, to pay a last tribute of respect to a companion and friend.
