Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, wife of
the President of the United
States, died- at the White House
at S o'clock Thursday afternoon.
Death catrtc after a brave strug
gle for months against Bright's
.disease with .complications.
The President was completely
unnerved by the qhock and his
grief was heart rending. He bore
up well, however, under tne
strain, and devoted himself to
his daughters. The end came
while Mrs. W'lson was uncon
scious. Her illness took a turn
for the worse shortly after 1
o'clock and from then on she
grew gradually weaker. '
Without any formality, except
that of the church and with all
the simplicity which she desired,
the funeral of Mrs. Wilson was
held in the East room of the
White House at 2 o'clock Mon
day afternoon. For the day offi
cial business was banished from
the Executive Mansion and
Washington and the nation
mourned for the dead.
Immediately 'after the services
the body was . taken to Rome,
Ga., the burial place of Mrs. Wil
son's parents. During the trip
through the South the people paid
respect by tolling church bells as
the spepial passed. Christ

which George Washington at
tended, joined in this tribute.
Outside of members of the
family only members of the cab
inet and their wives, the mem

In the Fayette County Court
Monday County Judge Bullock
rendered a decision which allows
two distinct elections on liquor
questions on September 28. He
overruled the pcttion of "drys"
that a vote be taken With entire
county as unit, holding that
statutes covering this point had
been so interpreted that cities of
second class in counties contain
ing cities of second class con hold
separate election.
. Both sides seem equally pleas
ed with the decision, the "drys"
claiming it gives them added
strength, while the "wets" scent
victory. Two ballots will be
given each voter in the city, and
he may vote on city and county
alike, but a county voter may not
vote on city question. It is fore
cast that if the "wets" win, the
"drys" will appeal from the de
cision 'of Judge Bullock.

a small amount of silver. He re
fused to return without requisi
