Death of Mrs. Jere Fields.

On Sunday morning at 10:20, the spirit of this most amiable and highly esteemed lady took its flight to the realms of bliss, after an illness of several weeks. The remains were taken to Versailles, Ky., the home of her parents, for interment. They were accompanied by Mr. Jas. Tumlin, Jas. Fields, and her sister, Mrs. George, who had come to her about two weeks before. Her heart broken husband was confined to his bed, and could not go.

The deceased was originally Miss May Hampton, Mr. Fields having met and married her in her Kentucky home. She was a noble, pure-spirited woman, and by her many goodly traits, had won the sincere love of all who knew her. She was a consistent member of the Methodist church, and was a patient, hopeful sufferer during her illnessóprepared for the Masterís will. She leaves a sorrowing husband and three little children. May they be kept in the hollow of the Lordís hand, until the meeting in the land beyond. No words can express the sympathy of our entire community for our noble-hearted friend, Jere Fields, in this the dark day of sore trial and bereavement.
