Joan Metz, Cantrall, seventeen months old daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Daniel Metz of Cantrall died very suddenly of strangulation at her home Wednesday afternoon. The mother had left the house for a few seconds and returning found the child had strangled. A physician was called but the little one passed on before he arrived. It is thought that a peanut became lodged in the child's throat.

The child is survived by its parents, four brothers and two sisters. Funeral services will be held at the residence at 9:00 o'clock, Friday morning and at Calvary cemetery, Springfield at 10:00 o'clock, Rev. Fr. Macauley of Athens, officiating.
