Smith passed away at the home of her brother, Mr. G. F. San ders, with whom she had lived for the past several years, last Saturday, and was buried on Sunday in the presence of a large concourse of rela tives and friends. Mrs. Smith was a perfect lady at all times—under all circumstances, she seemed bom to inspire the love and respect of all who knew her. No one was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer the de spondent, sustain the weak and throw the mantle of charity over the frail ties of the human race. Wheu sick ness, sorrow and misfortune came to her friends and neighbors her loving kindness and tender solicitude cheered them in their hours of sadness. Her relatives and friends will ever cherish her memory as a precious legacy. © © © © © $ © HORN LAKE HAPPENINGS Mr. and Mrs. Will Gartrell visited in Memphis Sunday.
