OBITUARY.
The funeral services of Mrs. Maggie
Hightower took place from the Sec
ond Baptist Church Tuesday, April 23,
at 2 p. m. Every available space of
the church was filled, and hundreds of
persons, not able to gain admittance,
waited patiently on the outside. Rev.
(J. B. Taylor, the pastor, delivered the
funeral eulogy, assisted by Rev. W. S.
Ellington. The remains of Mrs. Mag
gie Hightower were laid to rest in Mt.
Ararat, by the side of her husband,
Mr. Brown Hightower. The follow
ing obituary was read:
Mrs. Maggie Hightower was born in
March, 1847, and departed this life
"Sunday morning, April 21, 1907, at
ten minutes to four. She was married
to Mr. Biowu Hightower April 21,
1SGG; thus they were married for forty-one
years. She professed a hope in
Christ in 1872 and was baptized by
Rev. Alexander Buchanan and joined
the Second Baptist Church. She lived
a consistent and faithful Christian for
thirty-five years. She had extraordi
nary ability as a business woman,
working by the side of her husband
and assisting him in planning and
managing his business for more than
thirty-five years, during which time
tdie nevpr stopped a day for rest. In
the conduct of her business, she was
universally known as upright and hon
est in all dealings, thus gaining the
respect and confidence of her patrons.
As a neighbor, Mrs. Hightower was
peaceable, quiet, patient and forgiv
ing, ever ready to help the poor and
sympathize with the afflicted. Her ap
preciation of the faithful service ren
dered her and her husband in the con
duct of their business by Miss Georgia
A. Sanders, who was their clerk and
bookkeeper for more than seven years,
was both confiding and motherly. She
was a faithful member of the Benevo
lent Society No. 10G, the Mutual Aid
Society No. 4, and the Topeka Lodge
No. 3 of the Sons and Daughters of Is
rael for a number of years.
GRAND MASTER OF THE MASONS
IN THE CITY.
Prof. J. A. Henry, of Chattanooga,
Grand Master of the Ancient Free and
Accepted Masons for Tennessee, spent
several hours in the city Sunday en
route home from Clarksville, where
he had been to set up a new lodge
of this Order. Prof. Henry is one of
the most prominent citizens of Chatta
nooga, being the principal of Howard
High School. He has filled this po
sition for a number of years with com
plete satisfaction to all the citizens
of the city. Though his visit here was
cut short by some important business
at home, he will probably pay anoth
er visit to the city at an early date,
as he is a grand lodge officer and
individual member of the Masons. He
is very deeply interested in the Ma
sonic orphan's home which was re
cently purchased through Elder Pres
ton Taylor by their Order.

WHITE WOMAN FINED.
The City Court of any city possibly
has a larger variety of cases on its
docket than any other court. The
Nashville City Court, presided over
by Judge Baker, is not an exception to
the rule. Last Monday morning there
were sixty cases on the docket. One,
however, proved to be quite interest
ing. It was the case of Mrs. B. Lally,
who keeps a grocery store In East
Nashville. Mrs. Lally was charged
with tippling without license. In her
pjiso two fines were assessed. One
fine of $50..00 on a charge of tippling
on Sunday, and another of $20.00 on
the charge of tippling without license.
Another case was against Jake Ilirsh-
berg. who keeps a saloon on Ewing
avenue. His case was tried and dis
missed. Both of tho prominent cases
were white.
