Mrs. BROOKS BUSH, sister of our Mr. J. A. Howard, died last Friday morning with heart disease.  She was the mother of seven vigorous children, and had been in excellent health.  For some weeks previous she had at times realized a difficulty, at times, in breathing, but Thursday night she retired in her usual good health.  The next morning she aroused her husband, saying that she must have fresh air.  She required no assistance to get to a chair by the window, but her husband lifted her mattress on the floor, seeing that the eventful time had come.  She did not live exceeding twenty minutes although their physician had arrived from his home near by.  Mr. Howard returned to Cartersville Saturday evening, after the burial in Atlanta at the family residence.
