MRS. HUBERT BAILEY.
On\Saturday nightat Bogalusa
eoccured one of the saddest
deaths we have been called upon
to chronicle, that of Mrs. Hobert
SBailey, a devotei wife, a fond
Smother and a devout christian.
Just in the prime of life, Mrs.
Bailey possessed a strength (f
character and an untiring energy
g directed toward the betterment
of mankind that made her a pow.
e er for good in her community.
SJOust three days prior to her
a death Mrs. Bailey had avery
a severe stroke of appoplexy .from
rwhich her physicians were hard
ly able to revive her; she seemed
s to regain her usual strength :tho
e and was well and apparently al-j
t right when her husband left
I home to attend the Saturday
g nibht service at Baptist church.
After putting the two little ones
t to sleep she was sittint before
a the five studying her Sunday
n School.lesson when she presum
ably had a death stroke, falling
e lifeless into the ire. There was
.. no evidence of a movement after
, 'she fell, as the ashes were not
a even slightly diaturbed and the
e munscles @f the body were relax

outcry at all but were attracted
by the smell of something burn
ing, and seeing the smoke issu
uing from the room went in, only
to be confronted by the charred
body lying on the hearth.
The entire community felt the
shock of the tragic occurrence,
Her husband and son were quick
ly summoned, the church ser
vice closed at once and friends
innumerable gathered to render
whatever assistance and com
fort were possible.
Mrs. Bailey was the eldest
daughter of A. J. Johnson of this
place and had passed her thirty
seventh birthday just two weeks
ago, She was a woman beloved
by all, having lived an unusually
useful and happy life. She
leaves a sorrowing husband,three
daughters and a son besides an
aged father and alarge family of
devoted brothers and sisters to
mourn her loss; and it is a keen
'loss indeed to those as well as to
a host of friends, for she. was
ssuch a positive character that
she meant something to every
one with whom she came in con
'tact, and the comforting thing to
-the loved ones is, that her influ
'ence was always for the good.
The body was brought here on
sSunday and laid to rest on Mon
day at 11 a. m. in the family
I burying ground in Ellis Ceme
Those coming from a distance
to attend the funeral were: Mrs.
