he had been. This vras a day of the

e news of Hie death of Miss Delle Land a<
y which occurred yesterday morning w
t at 2 o'clock at the Wier Mitchell li
1 Sanitarium in Philadelphia.
i. While it was known that she was

n that she had gone North to be treate
ed vet none suspected that her ill- n
e ness would end so sadly j and at first a'
I the news seemed scarcely credible. ''
I) IiuI (lie persistent rumor was soon

were forced to accept it as true. ' c<
Miss Land was one of Augusta's V
_ most charming and talented young

_ as a musician and her ability in that 0>.
a profession was unquestioned. She J
c was musical director at tho First
f Presbyterian church and in that posi- s<
e lion lier excellent f.iste and splendid s'
ft execution were shown most plainly^
and accorded recognition and praise ^
lt from her friends and other musicians
in the city.
About a year ago Miss Land broke n
c down under the nervous strain atii

ii and she went North to recuperate. j>]
ii After remaining there some time she a
r returned home and seemed quite well j]

r not sustain (lie fine, high-strung inns1
ician's temperament and again her
strength gave way, as tho taut strings

it gives one a refreshing idea
