Alonzo Zook and wife live out on Lafayette Avenue and three months ago a daughter was born to them. The child seemed strong and healthy and occasioned them but little trouble. It grew as other children grow and Sunday was to all appearances perfectly well. It laughed and crowed and was quite sprightly throughout the day. The babe slept in the same bed with its parents, who retired at the usual hour, the baby going to sleep almost immediately. When Mrs. Zook awoke Monday her first thought was naturally of her child and turning over to where it lay she was horrified to find it dead. It was quite cold and had evidently been dead several hours. A doctor was summoned but, of course, was unable to be of service. The funeral of the little one occurred Tuesday.
