Swea City, June 11—Special Cor.:
Friends were shocked to hear of the death of Mrs. J. H. Holcomb Wednesday evening. Mrs. Holcomb under went a serious operation about a week ago and for a time it was thought she would recover, but Tuesday she took a turn for the worse and about 10 o’clock Wednesday evening she passed quietly out of this life to be with her Father in Heaven.
Mrs. Holcomb’s life has been everything that a God-fearing, loving mother’s life could possibly be and no woman was held in higher esteem in this community.
