Mrs. Stith Dead.

Mrs. Stith died at her home in Attica Wednesday night, of paralysis. Mrs. Stith was one of the early settlers in the northwest part of the county and had a host of friends who will be grieved to learn of her death. She has been an invalid for about five years, but yet her death was not expected. Her many friends in Harper sympathize with the bereaved family. - Harper Advocate.

The remains were brought to this city on Saturday and laid to rest by the side of her husband, Davis Stith, who died in this city in 1886. Mr. and Mrs. Stith and children resided in Medicine Lodge several years. Shortly after Mr. Stith's death the family moved to Harper county, near Attica.
