De&d.
! Our town wns saddened last
I Saturday morning to learn of the
death of Mrs. Wiley N. Nash
whose gentle, refined and pure
spirit returned to the God who
gave it at ho clock that morning
It came not as a surprise, for
Mrs, Nash had been a patient
sufferer for some months, per
haps for more than a year, but
the Ural dissolution is always
shocking.
The funeral services were held
at the home on Sunday evening
at 4 o’clock, conducted by Dr. H.
Fi. Raymond and the beautiful
words of truth spoken on this oc
casion—a consolation and a heal
ing balm to the wounded hearts
of dear members of the family,
and numerous relatives and
friends. Mrs. Nash's life was
one of beauty, loveliness and
consistency; accomplished, a roy
al type of womanhood and, the
best of all, a loyal and consistent
Christian. To mouan her loss;
the devoted husband, Wiley N.
Nash, her son, Mr. Harry Nash,
and daughter. Mrs. W. F. Hand,
of the A. &M. College; broth
ers; Messrs. John M. and A. C.
hrvin, the former of West Point
and the latter cashier of the Peo
ples Savings Bank of this place;
and sisters Mrs. H. L. Mu Id row
and Mrs, J. B. Hudson, Stark
viile, and Mesdames T. B. Beat
tie. of Memphis. and E. C.
Hughes, of Birmingham.
The remains were laid to rest
in Odd Fellows’ Cemetery, sur
rounded by a large concourse of
sorrowing relatives and friends.
The many beautiful tributes of
floral offerings attested the es
teem and love for the departed
one.
The News unites its sympa
thies with the many relatives
ane friends of the bereft in this
the hour of loneliness and sor
row.
A Shocking Accident.
On last Monday evening about
8 o'clock, at one of the pools at
ilie A. & M,’ College, Oland
Ware and Cecil Moyers, two
young men were occupying a
boat, hunting turtles with a rifle.
In the forenoon the young men
had been assisting their fathers
in some work at the buildings.
The former was in the back of
the boat and the latter in the
from. It appears that a couple
of students came along and call
ed their attention to a snake on
the bank. They went to the
bank and young Moyers jumped
out of the boat and pulled it
upon the land by the chain at
tached and the force caused the
gun to explode aud the ball cut
the juglar vein and it was but a
short time before death claimed
the unfortunate young man —
bled to death. Mr. Movers is
the head carpenter of the force
at the College putting up new
buildings and the father of Cecil.
Oland is the son of Mr. J. F.
Ware, who was working under
Mr. Moyers. The remains of
Cecil were conveyed to Fayette.
Tennessee, accompanied by the
family that evening where the
remains were interred We
have not the words to express
sympathies for the living young
man, the dead and the respective
families: the entire community
sympathizes greater than poor
words can express. Cecil was a
splendid boy and very much
beliked by all who knew him.
Rev. M. K, Thornton returned
home last Friday and tilled his
pulpit last Sunday morning—he
has been engaged-in a protracted
meeting at Monroe, Louisiana.
The weather was so inclement
last Sunday night, there was no
I religious services held at any of
tlk© churches—very inclement ia
the also.
