Death of Mabel Henry.

Seldom is a community so stirred by the event of death as was this community last Saturday on learning of the death of Miss Mabel HENRY at the home of her sisters, Mrs. D. O. JENNINGS, in Wewoka, Okla. She had always been a favorite in the community and the circumstances of her death appealed to all as something pathetic. It was the unexpected and lamented. It has been learned that for some years she had suffered at times from rheumatism and death came as the result of rheumatic fever.

Miss Mabel was born in Mount Ayr [August 24, 1872] and here she grew to womanhood and spent a joyful and happy youth. She was graduated from the Mount Ayr high school in the class of 1891 and was noted as a good scholar and a promising and interesting young lady. She made friends everywhere. All wished her well and took an interest in her well being and happiness. She left her home and friends early in the spring with her father, expecting to make her home with him at Globe, Arizona. She spent the summer with her sisters in Oklahoma and here, while family plans were maturing, she fell sick and the death summons came.

The remains came to this city last evening accompanied by her father, Judge R. C. HENRY, and Mr. and Mrs. D. O. JENNINGS. They were met by many friends and taken to the old home which had been set in order for them. The incident comes as a sad message to the city. The funeral will be held from the residence tomorrow at 11 o'clock and will be conducted by Rev. CASH, of the Baptist church. The burial will be in the family lot in Rose Hill cemetery. The bereaved friends are the sharers of an intense sympathy.
