The many friends of Miss Eva
Wyly will be pained to learn of her
death which occurred at Nashville
Wednesday evening, December 31,
1890. She had been in delicate
health for some time, and had gone
to Nashville hoping and'believing
that the physicians thero could give
relief and restore her to health.
But alas, death claimed her as a
victim. Just as tho year 1890 was
slowly but surely drawing to aclose,
when each movement of tho pend
ulum of time brought it nearer and
still near its end,: God in heaven
commissioned an angel to go to
earth and gather in ono -moro jew
elpluck one moro flower ere the
clock should toll the death knell
of the departing year. The angel
came, entered the home of Mr.
H. M. McAdoo, at Nashville, and
bore the spirit of this young lady
to Heaven. She was a noble heart
ed, true christian woman, and her
life had been such that sho has left
foot-prints upon tho sands of time
that point Heavenward ; no doubt
in the last moment, when the keen
edged sword in the merciless hand
of death was drawn to sever the
slender thread of life ere the last
stroke was given she looked back
upon the past and then straining
her eyes Heavenward, caught at
glimpse of the golden city her
future homo and her spirit camo
