Death Of Mrs. Gowdey
 The Reaper death has entered another happy home and rendered it sad and desolate, claiming this time a loving Mother, Mrs. Fanny Gowdey wife of Mr G.C. Gowdey. While she has been seriously ill with bowel trouble for two weeks, her death was caused by heart failure and came as a great shock to the family and everyone as the physicians stated that she was out of danger only a few hours before her death. but a sudden change took place Monday night, and about 2 o'clock Tuesday morning the soul of a Christian Mother winged its flight to the promised land above where 2 children have preceeded. None of her children were at home at the time of her death, the only daughter being on a visit to South Carolina. Deep sympathy goes out to this daughter, a devoted husband, an aged Mother, and two sons in their irreparable loss. Dr. W.G.Curry conducted the funeral services at the residence Tuesday afternoon at 5 o'clock, and the remains were laid to rest in the Livingston Cemetary.
