Mrs. Mamie Owens.
For several weeks a painful suspense
filled the hearts of all the relatives and
friends of the stricken wife of Mr.
Henry Owens, and the sad watchers at
her bedside were hopeful that a change
for the belter would take place, but on
Monday the announcement of her phy
sicians that the end was near cast a
gloom over the whole community . She
was a woman of lovely character and a
universal favorite. Her amiable quali
ties won her friends among all classes,
and they are deeply raddened by the
dispensation that lias fallen upon the
family. One and all sorrow with those
who are the deepest afflicted.
Rev. Mr. Raymond, of Starkville,
conducted the funeral services at the
Presbyterian church on Tuesday, and
the remains; were interred in the Odd
Fellows' Cemetery, a large concourse
of friends attesting their sympathy
with the family.
Wm. McDavid Connor.
Another of the oldest citizens has
passed away, and he too, was suddenly
stricken by the fell aicher. We learn
that on Monday, for the first time in
years he rode itnont on the farm. On
Tuesday he rode again, but shortly re
turned to the bonse, was taken sudden
ly ill and died, lie was a man of strict
integrity, and left many friends to re
vere lis memory, The burial tosk

The 27th uf April was a day to be remembered--beautiful
sunny skies and
the mockingbird giving forth its Bweet
est corals, and all nature seemed so
gay. We started forth with fishing
tackle, etc., foi a day's pleasure on
the lake. The jolly ami courteous Mr.
C. J. Byrd, with a wagon load of
ladies and children, led the crowd.
Mr. Rob Farrar, who is so fond of the
lovely maidens, had bis wagon well
After reaching the lake we were
glad to see Mr, J. Dngan drive up with
several ladies and children. On his
way he -killed birds and squirrels.
Messrs. Byrd and Stnart caught a
flue 15 pound cat fish; with that and
other good things the ladies brought,
our dinner was fine, and most especial
ly the excellent coffee Mr. Byrd made.
After catching fish and gathering all
the wild flowers we wanted, we heard
a great lumbering at a distance, which
told the happy crowd to ' Lets go".
If any one wishes to join our "Fishing
Party" next time just notify Byrd and
Wishing all the hunters and fisher
men success, I am
Yours truly.
