A Sad Death.

Early last Saturday morning the people of this city were surprised and pained to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Frank Durham, nee Miss Maggie Vandivere, which occurred about one o’clock the previous night. Such a picture of health did she seem that no one would have ever dreamed that her end was so near. She had complained the day before of feeling slightly unwell, but nothing serious was thought of it. About one o’clock in the night Mr. Durham was awakened by his wife, who complained of being very ill and before he could get up and call for assistance she expired.

Mrs. Durham was a young lady of many excellent and noble qualities. She was a consistent member of the Baptist church of this city. She has many relatives and friends who deeply mourn her untimely demise.

The funeral services occurred at the Baptist church Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, the large concourse of friends in attendance testifying the love and esteem in which she was held. Rev. C. E. W. Dobbs, the pastor, preached an appropriate and beautifully eloquent funeral sermon, after which the remains were carried to Oak Hill cemetery, where they were laid to rest beneath the sod.
