A SUDDEN DEATH.

Mrs. A. A. Huggins Dies Suddenly
at Los Angelos (sic), California.

Our community was deeply saddened on Saturday by a telegram received from A. A. HUGGINS to his mother-in-law, Mrs. D. C. KINSELL, stating that his wife was not expected to live. A lingering hope yet remained that she would recover and friends and relatives awaited a painful suspense the further word. On Tuesday another telegram was received from Mr. HUGGINS at Los Angelos (sic) conveying the sad intelligence of her death. Thus ends the life of one of Mt. Ayr's noblest women.

Her death is particularly sad because she was separarted in her short sickness and death from her relatives and many friends in Mt. Ayr by whom she was loved.

About a week ago Mr. and Mrs. HUGGINS left Mt. Ayr on a visit to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. HUGGINS, at San Diego, Cal. During the trip Mrs. HUGGINS caught a severe cold which brought about a slight attack of pneumonia, and while in feeble health she scratched her hand and soon blood poisoning set in which was the immediate cause of her death. When they reached Los Angelos (sic), which is about two hundred miles from San Diego, they stopped off in order that she might regain her strength and be under a physician's care. But she kept growing worse and at 11 o'clock Monday night passed peacefully away.

Mrs. HUGGIN's (sic) maiden name was Ida Elizabeth KINSELL. She February 28, 1855, at Red Rock, Marion county, Iowa. In 1860 she removed with her parents to Mt. Ayr where she grew to womanhood. She attended our public schools, and afterward graduated at Elizabeth Auld Seminary at Lexington, Mo. She was married to Mr. A. A. HUGGINS Dec. 27, 1888, her pastor, Rev. W. B. THOMPSON, performing the ceremony.

Early in life she united with the Methodist church, and has lived a faithful and consistent christian. She was always constant in her attendance at church, and was a devoted follower of her Savior. For many years she was a member of the choir, and took great pleasure in doing anything within her power to help along the christian work.

She possessed a noble and beautiful christian character, and was loved and respected by all who knew her. Her religion was of the practical kind and she especially edlights in doing little acts of kindness among the poor. She was a faithful wife and made her home one of joy and happiness for God's altar was erected there. She was a kind and tender mother, and we can truly say of her that she possessed all of the christian graces of the spirit. Her death while sad to those who mourn was to her like the peaceful and happy ending of a summer's day whenthe evening shadows slowly gather round the setting sun.

She leaves a husband, and one son, Asa HUGGINS, now five years old. Her death is the second in her own family, her father D. C. KINSELL having died nine years ago. Her mother, brothers and sisters survive her and they will feel the loss deeply.

The remains will be brought home for interment [at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa], but the funeral services cannot be now announced. her pastor Rev. W. C. MARTIN, will conduct the services.
