A Sad Death.

Mr. W. S. Culpepper, of Arkansas, Visits His Sick Brother, But is Stricken with Typhoid Fever and Dies.

The death of Mr. W. S. Culpepper, which occurred at his brother, H. T. Culpepper’s house, near Stilesboro, last week, was of a peculiarly sad character.  The deceased lived with his family, a wife and three children, near Forest City, Arkansas, where he was engaged in farming.  A few months ago, his brother, Mr. H. T. Culpepper, visited him in Arkansas and ginned cotton in the neighborhood of his brother’s home, he was taken sick, however, and returned home, his sickness developed into a malignant type of typhoid fever.  The deceased upon hearing of his brother’s sickness immediately left his Arkansas home and came hither to his brother’s home to see him and be with him during his illness, but not long ago, he too was stricken down with the same malady, and while his brother was prostrate in one part of the house, vibrating between life and death, W. S. Culpepper died.  His brother does not know of his death, nor does he know that he had even been sick.  He frequently inquires about him, as it is thought he could not survive the shock of such intelligence.  Mr. W. P. Whitesides one of our 17th district friends, is the cousin of the Culpepper’s and has been untiring in his anxious, careful, watchfulness and attention to them.  The deceased was buried near Stilesboro.
