The entire town is greatly distress
ed over the critical illness of Mr. W.

grew worse and was carried to Co

the operation and his condition is
regarded as extremely critical. A tel

there has been no change for the bet

special bequest of $100 in cash to
Lucy Lake, the colored woman who
from girlhood has been such a faith
ful servant and friend of the family.
In the illness of the other members of
the family, as well as during Mr

untiring in ministering to them. Du
ring the weary hours of the night, as
well as in the day, Lucy was always
ready and willing to serve her white
friends, and those who know, of her
loyalty and faithfulness are greatly
pleased that Mr. Brunson thus took
recognition of this faithfulness and
