established a large circle of warm and devoted friends who with her bereaved husband and relatives are left to mourn her
departure. She had implicit faith in her Savior. In her last illness she was assidously attended by Drs. HORNE, SELBY and BONE

must all bow. Funeral services conducted by Rev. J. WIRTH, at Wirt, Wednesday, April 20th, at 10 A.M. and remains taken to
