J. S. Coleman, 615 west Cherry St.
Mrs. Florzel Smith lelt Saturday night
for Louisville, Ky., where she will
make her future home. Mrs. Susie
Brown also left for Cleveland Ohio.
A good woman is gone, Mrs. Don
nie Clark, mother of Miss Barbara
Clark, one of the Globe's good sub
scribers, died April 26, 1917 On her
farm near Howell, Tenn. Mrs. Don
nie Clark, was one of the most prom
inent women of the race, her funeral
took place from the Baptist Church
of that place last Friday at 2:30 p.m.
It was one of the most largely at
tended funerals ever held in Howell,
Tenn., due to her wide acquaintance
and popularity. The funeral services
were conducted by Rev. Words, his
son and others. Many beautiful things
were said by them about this great
and good woman. Her husband, who
departed this life several years ago
was a worthy husband, for he made
the needed preparation for her on
earth by leaving her a beautiful little
home of several acdes of land about
two miles out from Howell, Tenn., and
4 miles of Fayetteville on the Peters
burg pike. When a man comes to die
matters not how much religion he
has, if he says he is ready to go, and
made no preparation for his family,
he leaves behind him, he made a mis
take by saying he is ready to go, for
he .Is not. I will say more on that
subject later. Mrs. Clark's remains
were in charge of Mr. Johnney Hoses,
and it was most ably conducted and
everything was up-to-date. Mr, Hose
was patient, courteous and kind. He
looked after every wish of the family.
The casket was of beautiful black
broadcloth . and heavily draped
Everything was fine the truth of the
matter is this house Is unsurpassed
by any in the city. Mrs. Clark lost
her youngest daughter about two
years ago. She leaves her only daugh
ter Miss Barbra, five sons and other
relatives and friends to mourn her
loss. In her the children have loat
a good mother, the church a faithful
member and the race a great and good
woman, peace to her ashes. Mr.
Florence White is in untsville, Ala,
this week visiting her sister, Mrs.
Maud Donegan, W. Hall St. Their
mother has been quite ill also their
father, but is up this week. The
farmers are very busy in this section
preparing their soil and planting corn
from the outlook it seems that a large
quanlty of food will be raised. Mrs.
Fannie Alexanders the wife of Mr.
Bob Alexanders of Gadsden, Ala.,
formerly of this place, passed Into
the great beyond sin.ee our last meet
ing. Her funeral services were held In
Gadsden, but her remain s were
brought to Fayetteville, interment was
at Rose Hill cemetery. The Mt. Zlon
Baptist Church under the pastorate of
Rev. Smith, D. D., is steadily Im
proving. The pastor left this week
for Columbia, Tenn., to preach the
funeral of one of his former members
of that place.
