Death of Mattie Bray. !
Another death occurred at
this place Wednesday of last
I week which wos a great shock
to the family and frieudB of the
young woman. Thin was the
death, after an illness of only a
few days, of Mattie Bray, the
oldest daughter and principal
support of hor widowed mother,
Amanda Pridemore, and a tame
sister, Delta Bray, who live in
a small house on Uilly Avenue.
Mattie was born in Sneed
vtlle, Tonn., tho 28th of Febru?
ary, )8S0. Her father was C.
11. Bray, who died when she
was quite young. The other
children are William und Delia
Bray, of this placo, and Edward
Bray, of Bneeaville, Tenn.
Though she lived but n week
after she took her bed, Mattie
Buffered greatly, and her strug?
gles to speak anil make herself
understood were pitiful in the
extreme. Physicians in attend?
ance diagnosed her case as tu?
berculosis of the spine and in?
curable. The end came late
Wednesday evening without a
struggle, the state of uncon
scousness which she hnd drop?
ped into at the last changing
quietely to the stillness of
death.
Services were held over the
body in the Methodist church,
South, Thursday afternoon at
three o'clock bv the pastor,
Rev. tt. K. Sutherland. While
not a member of any church,
Mutlin had made a profession!
of religion three years ago
during a meeting held in that
church by Kov. Carter, assisted
by Rev, York, and her inten?
tion hud always been to unite
with the church.
The remains were interred in
Oloncoo cemetery Thursday af?
ternoon following the service
at the church.
The family feel very grnte
f 111 for the help extended In
them in their great sorrow, and
wish to express through lhacol?
umns of this paper something
of their gratitude and heartfelt
appreciation of the services of
friends und neighbors during
the short illness und death of
their relative
Lclia Ewing Beaty.
Miss l.elin ICwing Beaty was
born in Lee County, Yu., on
May lf>, 1806, and died July 10,
1012. She was the daughter of
the late Dr. Napoleon K. Beaty
and his tirst wife, Mary Ann
Kindrick, of Richlands, Yu.
Her mother died when she
was eleven years old; so that in
the formative period of her girl?
hood life, she was without tho
love and counsels of that best
of all advisers, a true and lov?
ing mother, though late anoth?
er good woman came into that
mother's place, and "did what
she could."
Miss Beaty early consecrated
her life to the service of her do
\ me Master, and untie,I wi\ It
the Mt. Curmel Presbyterian
Church, Rose Hill, A7u., on
September 29, 1877, whon she
was little more than twelve
years of age.
She was educated at Cumber?
land College, and on leaving
school, began what proved to
be her life-work?thot o f a
teacher of youth in our public
schools.
She was remarkably success?
ful and popular, even from hor
first school, and in her later
years, was regarded us one of
the strongest and best among
the grade teachers of the conn
ties where she labored.
She taught six years in the
Schools of Lee county; one year
in Ta/ewell College, Tennessee;
nine years in (iladeville College
Wise, Yu., and nine years?her
last work?in the Norton pub?
lic schools; making in all an
aggregate of a full quarter of a
century devoted to the educa?
tion of the young people of this
section.
She was nil indefatigable
Worker, sparing no labor or
pains for the benefit of those
intrusted to her care,
For many years, as the writer
can testify from close contact
with hor work, she, after the
arduous day's labor in the
schoolroom, spent nlmosl en?
tirely upon her feet, she would
rarely retire before eleven or
twelve o'clock, spending the
time in correcting exorcises,
grading papers, preparing tents
making out reports, and seeing
that everything was fully ready
for the next day's work.
Besides all this, for many
years she was a teacher in tho
Sunday school, and spent much
labor tu preparing the lessons
bo as tu be of the most possible
benefit to the pupils of her
class,
She wrought long, und well,
and nobly, every duty faith?
fully performed; and now she
"rests from hor labors and her
works do follow her."
Almost literally may be ap
plied to her tbo tribute of the
poet to his friend:
None know hor but tu lore her
Nunc ii Iii;..t her but to nraiHO.
Among tho immediate family
of the deceased are tho follow?
ing:
Brothers?J. M. Benty, of
Wise; 11. c. Beaty, of Koanoko;
K. B. Beaty, of Crawford, Ne?
braska; C. D. Beaty, of Combs,
Tenn.
Half brothers?W. K. Beaty,
of Corbin, Ky., J. A. Beaty. of

Mrs. C. Y. Chapman, of Nor?
ton, and a half sister, Mrs. T.
K. Hatcher, of Norton, and the
Btepmother,Mr8. N. 10. Beaty of
Norton.

plumbs. The fruit trees in this

One day this week a young
lady about seventeen years of
age, by the name of Alley, who
lives on Cunoy Ridge, near
Torna Creek, was bit on the
mouth by a snake. She was
in the garden gathering some
vegetables and while picking
beans the snake sprung at her
and bit her mouth. The reports
were that with in a few minutes
her face and bead were swollen

could not talk and that she
was in a critical condition.
The last reports received here
were that she was seriously ill,

ed him to such an extent that
ho will be confined to his home
for several days. While lifting
on the beam his feet slipped and
he was thrown into the creek
several feet below the bridge
and the beam then rolled on
him.

From our local columns it
seems that the women of Big
Stone Uap and Appalachia are
beginning to rise up and take
notice. They might as well
throw off the sweet disguise

gracefully and take charge of
everything e x CO pt splitting
wood and carrying coal, which
is about all the men are tit for.
