Miss Amanda Smith

Died: Miss Amanda Smith, daughter of R.M. Smith, died at Hot Springs, Ark., on Tuesday of last week.

She had been a sufferer from rheumatism and had taken treatment from numerous physicians without much relief. A few weeks ago her father took her to the Springs hoping to benefit her but without success.

The remains were brought home on Friday and the funeral services held from the family residence in Elwood township on Saturday. Elder M.B. Ingle, of Harper, formerly pastor of the Christian church of this city, preached the sermon.

The most profound sympathy goes out to the relatives of the departed one. She had many friends in Barber county who mourn her early death.
