ANOTHER SUMMONS Oh Monday morning, Septem ber 27, 1920, at 10 'o'clock, Miss Francis Pigott, died at St. Jo seph Hospital, in Memphis, af ter a lingering and painful illness of many months. For a great part of the time was in the home of her sister, Mrs. W. F. Lipford Later she was removed to the hospital.. During all of the time the patient received the atten tion of the most eminent physi cians in the city. . . ; The deceased was a most lova ble and charming young woman, and her many friends and rela tives admired and loved -her for I .her manifold graces and,virtueis; lor ner sweet ana kind and gen- tie nature, one was patient, ten der and whole-souled: buoyant of spirit, and always cheerful and happy. ' When" affliction's heavy hand was laid upon her, and she realized ihe desperation of her situation, she bore her suffering with patience and for titude, and smiled in the pres ence of death. Her life was t beautiful one, In the bloom and vigor of young womanhood, she answered the summons,' in the presence of loved . ones whose daily ministrations during , the . months of her illness had light ened the burdens and brightened the days for her. She was reared at Bethel Springs, being the daughter of Wm. and Mrs. Rachel Pigott. de ceased . She had fitted 1 herself for a business career, and when A t Ml VII t i&xen m neia a responsioie posi tion with the Pictsburg Steel Company. The deceased is survived by John C. and W. T. Pigott broth ers, and Mrs J. L.' Hendrix and Mrs. W. F. Lipford, Sister M. rerpetuaand Miss Angela Pig oil, sisters, to an oi whom are tendered sympathy and condo lence. , in tne family burying ground at Bethel Spiings Tuesday after noon the remains were laid to ' rest Father Reid conducted the funeral service in a most impres Dr, Wm. Ross 'Carter DENTIST Office over FirstNatlonal Bank. Weatherford' First Mfmday is the c!av to spb about the taxes. . Let's all cet busy and work for a tax levy that will give us of the rural d is tricts a siJumontns' school each year. Experienced teachers fire demanding and should receive more money thiti i now being paid them for teaching, v If we don't -want .to fall down on otif schools like we are about to doi oh our roads,, something must be done right away. Lots of road talk 'and nothing done yet, and we hear that the county court is going to knock out the whole thing. We hope this will not be' done,1 and that the surveys will be made like the county iCOurt understood it. . The court voted these bonds with the .understanding, that the. Toads were to go, the shortest and best routes to connect the county seats and why don't tne county com missioners see that this done and stop this wrangling and side tracking, and let these routes be surveyed regardless, of -whose house -it passes or does not pass? We all know that two' or three miles further is not the nearest and the cheapest. We hear that some communities offer $35,000 if the . roacT will o heir way. What inducement is" this if the roads cost $20,000 a mile? If route is three miles ,longer than another, where is there any econ omy to it? .So let these county commissioners see that these sur veys for roads go straight thru. Notics : r W. M.
