6/24/2009 Hello,
It is hard to make out some letters, but I will try.

Here is what it says:

Occurred in the settlement of Zholk*(can't make out the rest of the name) in November 20th (December 2nd) of 1885 (not sure why there are 2 dates. It could be Julian and Gregorian calendars), at 11 AM came Jews:
Yankel Shrift 43 years of age and Leyba Klyan 46 years of age that have 2 schoolchildren Zholkevskikh and announced that, on November 19th (December 1st) of the current year at 6 AM died Beylya Katz 3 years of age, the daughter of Abysya and Rukhly (born as Biderman) ... can't make the rest of the sentence. Something about parents and the settlement name that I can't figure out.

Then it has the signatures of the witnesses.

Hope it helps.
