Saddest Occurrence that has Taken
Place in that Part of the County
Tuesday afternoon about 4 o'clock
there happened one of those tragedies
that in their suddenness and absolute
unexpectedness and their overwhelm overwhelming

Mrs. Charles Henry Price of Palat Palat-ka,
ka, Palat-ka, with her little daughter, Charlotte
Lillian, fifteen months of age, were
visiting the family of Dr. and Mrs. S.
Ii. Blitch at Blitchton. They had been
guests of the family for two weeks
and the winsome little girl had be become

ed beloved by all. Especially attached to each
other were she and Mr. Landis Blitch,
Dr. and Mrs. Blitch's eldest' son. Baby
Charlotte, was just learning to walk,
and to keep her from going out of the
yard into the public road the family
was always particular to keep tha
front gate closed.
Shortly before 4 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, Mr. Landis Blitch went for
the car, which was in the garage. The
child followed him to the gate. He
took her up, kissed her, placed her on
the ground and told her to run back to
the house. Closing the gate after the
child, he went on to the garage.
The garage is situated more than
two hundred yards from the front
gate. There is no sidewalk and the
way is deep' sand. Going there one
turns two corners, for it is at' the
back of the block on which the resi residence

dream that the baby, who, could
scarcely walk, would follow that long
distance, through such sand, even
had she been outside the gate.

loth wheels, the child his playmate

not reah'ze it, nor what had been
done. Leaping out he gathered the
little form into his arms and called
to his mother, taking the little one
towards the house as he called. His
sister. Miss Legie, and his mother
started to him, his sister afterwards
stating that she knew by his voice that
something terrible had happened.
The mother of the child, and Mr.
Blitch's mother and sister rushed to
meet him. It was all too plain that
the baby was beyond help, that
death must have been instantaneous.
Indeed, she never cried out, not even
a dying gap was heard by Mr.
B'itch, as the heavy wheels crushed
her little head into the sand.
Mr. Blitch collapsed and went into
convulsions. The child's mother was
prostrated. Mrs. Blitch telephoned
U Ocala for a physician, and one, a
life long friend of the family, re responded,
