Jewish resident of Louisville, died

home of her son in law, Mr. Henry
Flexner, 2115 First Street.
Yesterday marked the twenty
fourth anniversary of the death of
her husband, Henry Kahn, wbe was
a prominent wholesale dry goods
merchant of Bolivar, Teun.
Mrs. Kabn's death was due to the
infirmities of age, and though she
had been in failing health for the
past few years, it was not until a
month ago that the end seemed
near. Despite her extreme age,
she retained an active miud. She
was conscious to the last, and au

children to her bedside aud bade
Mrs. Kahn i survived by five
children Mrs. H. Flexner and Mr.
Marcus Kahn, of this city; Messrs.
Isaac and Samuel Kahn, of Mem

Mrs. Kahn was uiuely-seven
years of age and was a native of
Rittenburg, Germany. She came
to this country with her parents
when but a child. For many years
she made her home at Bolivar,
Tenn., but at the breaking out of
the civil war moved to this city,
where she has since resided. She
was a charter member of the Adath
Israel Temple, and a life-long
friend of the late -Rabbi Adolpb
Moses. Louisville Post, Dec. 13.

15th district of Fayette County, was
murdered Wednesday of last week
by unknown parties. He left home
early in the morning to attend to
seme business and in the afternoon
the mule he rode came home rider
less, which created suspicion. A
searching party was formed and his
body was found in a thicket, with a
.gunshot wound--in the? back of his
head. Three negroes were arrest
ed on suspicion and confined in jail
atv Somerville. Mr. Malone was
well known in this county.

Esquire James - Wyatt officiating.
After congratulations, the wed

W. A. Ross' residence in Harde
man County, where they were
greeted by about 150 persons,
who assembled by invitation of Col.

who never does things by halves.
After greetings and congratula
tions were given the newly married
couple by friends and relatives, the
wedding feast began to be served
about 3 o'clock p.m. and continued
until about 7. To say that it was
a sumptuous feast is not saying too
much. After all had eaten "there
were twelve basketsful remaining."
