Mrs. John L. Tour Dead.
A gloom was cast over our commu
nity yesterday morning by the an
nouncement that Mrs. John L. Young
was dead. She had been sick for some
time and has suffered a great deal, and
her death was not unexpected. She has
been quite prominent both in social
circles and in the good works of the
town. Her influence for good and her
works will live after her.
The funeral services were held in the
Presbyterian church, and her remains
were laid to rest in the town cemetery
whioh owes its beauty in a large
measure to her work and influence.?
8he was public spirited and took a
prominent part In every enterprise for
the good of the town or the people.?
8he was noted for her kindness to those
in need, and her open hand of charity
was ever extended to the poor and suf
fering. To the bereaved husband and
sorrowing children the Times extends
its deepest sympathy.?Union Times.
Mrs. Young was Miss Jane Curling
ton, reared in this oity, a daughter of
the late John Qarllngton, and sister of
the Messrs Creswell and 8. D. Oarllng
ton. As Miss Jane Qarllngton she was
a beautiful and lovely girl, bright, ac
complished, and well known through
out the State. There are still a fow
left among us to reeall with mournful
pleasure the charming graco of tho
lovoly girlhood of this noble Carolina,

Much that is edifying and cultiva

Then too, it seems absurd to study
