Funeral Obsequies of Evangeline Vollmer.

Little Evangeline Vollmer, the beloved and adored of her parents, the child whose innocent sweetness had for years found expression from the lips of all who knew her, has drooped and died and we shall see her bright face and hear the sweet accents of her voice no more forever. But faith says "se is not dead, but sleepeth." The funeral services were held at the Episcopal church on yesterday at 2 p.m. The church was tastefully decorated with flowers interspersed with crape. A very large concourse of our citizens, old and young, were present to pay the sad rights of burial, and to condole with the family of the deceased in their great bereavement. A large number of the children of the place, dropped each a bunch of flowers into the casket, as they viewed the remains of the friend, play and school mate for the last time. Rev. Mr. McConkey, officiated, and the choir sung with effect several appropriate funeral dirges. The burial of the remains was delayed until today at the request of the parents.
