One of the saddest deaths . of which we have Known occurred here Sunday evening last, when Mrs. Lucretia Hobson O'Byrnes passed away at the home of her father, Mr. Archie Hobson, For weeks, her going away was expected, but her life was fought foj until the last. Five little chil dren, all under ten years of age, the babe only eight months old, were left motherless, when her suffering body gave tip its fpirit and the rest she so much needed, after weeks of racking p.iin, was hers. Although the battle for life was fought with skill, her frail body could not bear the ravages of dis ease and we will understand why this had to be in God's own time, but we dare not doubt that it is His Will and that for this reason it is no longer a sufferer and that has promised to care for the ones left here. That the bereft husband have a way pointed out to him to do the best for his motherless little ones, and that the example of a sweet mother may be a beacon light to point out to them the path to success and happiness is the wish of friends and The Hummer. The remains were laid away Monday afternoon at four o'clock at the Houston cemetery, after a funer al service at the Presbyterian church conducted by Rev. Moses. God little may Dead. Th many friends of Mr Ashton Flynn will be grieved ty learn of his untimely death, at his home here, Wednesday morning. May 19, Mr. Fly nn was only sick for a few days, and was dead before many of his friends learned of his illness. He was manager of the Hurculus Buggy Company, which position he ably filled, being considered one of the best timber estimators in this section of the state. He leaves be sides a widow and two small chil dren, a mother and two brothers to mourn for him. He was hurried by tlit W, 0. W. in the Houston Ceme tery Thursday morning at 11. a. m. We extend our sympathies to the family in their loss. . r- W E KNOX KILLED BY QUIT HOUSER A most deployable tragedy oc curred four miles south of town, Wednesday attenron about two o'clock, v hen W.
