Pembina, Mo. Again the sad messenger has taken one of our sweetest flowers. Died at her home on the 14th. Annie Bostic, aged 13 years and 7 months. She was the daughter of C. K. and Minta Bostic. She leaves two brothers, three sisters, a father and mother to mourn her loss. Little Annie’s death was sudden, only living a few hours after she was taken sick. She was a sweet little girl, loved by all who knew her. She was in Sunday School on Sunday before she died. Little did we all think it would be the last time we would be with her. She was laid to rest in the cemetery at Pembina on Easter Sunday, and her little comrades decked her grave with wild flowers. We were reminded of the resurrection where we could meet her again. Dear one, rest in peace, and by the grace of God, we will meet you in the sweet bye and bye.  A Friend.
