Last Tuesday night about 9 o'clock,
Mrs. Matilda M. Butler, who was the
widow of the late Wm. Butler, died
suddenly at her late borne, at the top
of the Cheatham Bridge Hill, two
miles from Columbia.
The deceased was in her 72th year,
and was in this place, trading, all day
Tuesday. When she reachedLb.ome
she was feeling in perfect hea3ftnand
was in a happy frame of mind. She
sat with her daughters in the family
room until it was time to go to her
own apartment. One of her daughters
went with her to her room, and in a
short time she was ready to take her
bed, but before lying down she placed
one of her hands on her head, a
strange look coming over her counte
nance, and in a very short time she
passed away. Dr. C M. Russell was
called apd pronounced the attack of
apoplexy, and informed her daught
ers that medical aid could do no good
She leaves six daughters who are
sorely grieved over the dispensation of
providence. Mrs. Butler, before her
marriage, was as Miss Banks and there
are many relatives of that name in
the county. She was an excellent
Christian woman, a member of the
Methodist Church, and she instilled
fight living into her offspring.
Thejt uneral services were conducted
by Revs. Sleamaker and Murrell
Wednesday and the intermnnt was in
the Butler grave yard. There were
many who attended the last sad rites.
May God comfort the stricken family,
is the wish of all who know the, los
ing mother, and whose sympathy is
extended to the six dutiful daughters.

Mark Twain's Cousin Dies.
Miss Xantippe Saunders, 85, for
many years one of the leading artist
of this city, died at 10:45 o'clock last
Tuesday-morning at her home, 3128
Western Parkaway. Miss Saunders
first began her serious work as an ar
tist under Professor Pering, of Louis
ville, continuing her studies in New
York under Professor JEaton and Pro
fessor Wilmorth.. Later she was asso
ciated with Carnelia Pering; of this
city, for over twenty-five years, the
art school being known as Pering &
She was a cousins of the late Mark
Twain and possessed the same gifts of
wit and humor with which he was en
dowed. While she outlived most of
her contemporaries, her cheerful,
bright and optimistic disposition won'
for her a host of friends among the
younger generation. She was known
particularly as a portrait painter.
After the funeral services the inter
ment was in Cave Hill Cemetery.
Miss Sanders was a native of Adair
county, her mother being a Miss Han
cock, and there are yet many bf her
relatives living in the surroundings of
Columbia. She was a very popular
young woman, and especially -was sbe
a favorite of the young people of this
community. She was a leader in all
social functions, and her company wasJ
eag erly sought.
Her father, Mr. William Sanders,
was a native of England, was a skilled
penman, and was a school teacher by
profession. He and another teacher,
also an EngliBhman, Daniel Booty,
came tO'Columbia at the same -time,
and entered upon their profession. It
was in the Mt. Pleasant community
he met and married a Miss Hancock,
the mother of Miss Tip. The mother
died when the subject of this notice,
was a small gi.l, and in a few years,
Mr. Sanders married another Miss
Hancock, sister of his deceased wife,
who is also dead.
Near the Mt. Pleasant church Mr.
Sanders erected an Academy and re
ceived boarding pupils for a number
of years. Tradition tells us that the
late Judge Jas. Garnett, Gen. P. W.
Hardin, deceased, and Hon. W. F.
Neat and many other men who be
came prominent, attended this school.
When Mr. Sanders was about; fifty
years old, he accepted a position as
bookkeeper for a Louisville House
and removed, with his daughter, to
that city. He did not remain in this
position but a short time, resigning it
to accept a position in Norton's Bank,
which he held until his death, which
occurred about twenty-five years ago.
""' As an artist, Miss Sanders had but
few equals. After receiving advan
tages in New York, she spent a year
or two abroad.
A specimen of her work can be seen
on the tomb pt Mrs. Prudie Lyon, the
first wife of Mr. W R Lyon, in ""the
Columbia cemetery. It is the deceas
ed picture and it is burned in the
stone, the weather having no effect
upon it. S
The passing of this distinguished
character removes from Kentucky one
of her most distinguised women, one
whose memory will linger for ages.

quiet but pretty "wedding was solemn
ized at Brownfield, Texas, when Miss
Jennye McFarland, of this city, be
came the bride of Mr. M. L. Norris,

The ceremony was pronounced in a
very impressive manner by the Meth

home of Mrs. Fred Smith, cousin of
the bride, after which the contract

trip, arriving last week in Clovis,
New. Mexico, where they will reside.
No young lady ever reared in Colum
bia has more friends wishing her hap

sunny, unselfish disposition, her win

bo congratulated upon winning this
charming young lady.
Although she has for several years
been in business in Indianaoolis.
where she also left a host of f riands,
yet Columbia has ever claimed her for
her own and she will be greatly missed.
