A Sad Death

MRS. EB CHAMBERS of the 24th district died last Monday morning about 5:00 of brain fever. Mrs. Chambers was about 22 years old, was a daughter of JOHN CRIDER, and had been married less than 2 years. She leaves a husband and one child, was a true noble woman and a host of friends and relatives to mourn her loss. This was Mr. Chambersí third wife and he is only 34 years old. Mrs. Chambers was buried at the HAMPTON graveyard last Tuesday.


News reached us here last Wednesday that JOE SELLERS of the 24th district had died the night before. Mr. Sellers is quite an old man and has been sick for some time with typhoid fever. He is one of seven brothers who constituted rather a remarkable family. The youngest of these brothers is over 60 years old and this is first brother to die. They have lived to ripe old age and only a short time ago, the seven had their pictures taken in a group, which formed an interesting group. Mr. Sellers stood well in his community and his death is regretted by a host of friends and relatives. His remains were laid to rest in the Sellers graveyard last Wednesday.
