Death of Mrs. Schnell. Mrs.
Howard Payne Entertain
ed With Spend the
Mrs .E. A. Schnell died at her
home in Greenwich, Conn., on last
Tuesday and the body was brought
here Friday for interment. She had
been in ill health for several months,
and every means was used for her
restoration, her husband being a
physician of note. The news of her
death was received here with sad
ness, for she had many warm friends
here, her girlhood days having been
. spent ni Johnston. Before her mar
riage she was Miss Ellie Ivey, the
daughter of Capt. and Mrs. J. R.
Ivey. She was a trained nurse and
attained a high degree in this pro
fession and was superintendent of a
large hospital in New York, also oe- j
cupying other very responsible posi
tions in this line. It was while thus
occupied that she met Dr. Schnell.
She was a woman of strong charac
ter and very intellectual, and was an
interesting conversationalist. Her
love for her old home and friends
was marked and her home coming
was always hailed with delight by
those who knew her best. After the
death of her parents she retained the
home, and it was here her body was
brought and reposed through the day
and night to await the burial. Sym
pathizing friends, coming with flow
ers literally covered the casket, and
all around it were these silent tok
ens of love. The funeral services j
were conducted by Rev. David D.
Kellar , pastor of the Methodist
church, and the two hymns sung
were "Asleep in Jesus" and "Some
time We'll Understand." The pall
bearers were Messrs. J. C. Lewis, 0.
D. Black, W. M. Wright, W. J. Hatch
er, John R. Hoyt and Jesse Derrick.

tired an dmy back was sore. The
longer I was on my feet the worse I
felt and it was like being pulled
down by weight. When evening came
I could hardly keep up. There was a
severe pain across my kidneys, espe
cially if I stooped or got up from a

A member of the family told me
about Doan's Kidney Pills and I used
them. Doan's rid me of the trouble
