The death of Mrs Mabry Bass Hill, l
wife of Mr Chas. I1. hill. on Sunday
evening last at 10 e'clock p. m. cast a
gloom over our entire community, and
no death that has occurred here was
more sadder than the taking away of
this lovely an(d accomplished young
woman. Only a few months ago she
was led to the altar a sweet bride by
Mr. Hill. a young man, whose pros
pects were brightl , and whose cup of
happiness was overflowing. who is now
heartbroken and hardly cares for the
ambitions of life that were his. It was
happiness in this sweet little home, that
has been broken up by the terrible
reaper-death, and time only can heal
the sorrow and pain.
Mrs HIll was a bright woman, a
lovely character, and one who was es.
teemed highly and loved by those who
knew her. How sad, how sad, to the
fond and loving parents and family,
who idolized her, that she is gone-un
til they meet agait on that Golden
shore, where it will be peace and hap
piness. The ''Spirit of Love" will
unite them somne day in that spirit
May Angels guide them in their sor
row and teach them that she is gone for
only a while.
Accept our heartfelt sympathy, hus
I band and parents, in your hour of
grief and sad affliction.
