DIED. -Mrs. CATHARINE CARTER, wife of JAMES A. CARTER, of this county, was born in Sandusky county, Ohio, in 1810, moved to this county in 1841 and settled upon their farm 31/2 miles North east of Kewanna, and died in Sumner county, Kansas, on the 17th day of May, 1876, aged 66 years, 11 months and 17 days. Last fall Mr. and Mrs. Carter, accompanied by their daughter, Mrs. BOYER, went to Kansas, in order to spend the winter, visiting their children and friends. Buried in the Oxford Cemetery, Oxford, Kansas. Mrs. Carter for many years past had suffered very often and much, passing through many attacks of erysipelas, bilious remittent fever, and the varied diseases to which this climate is subject. She was a patient sufferer at all times, amiable and kind to all, an obliging neighbor, a kind affectionate mother in her family and will be greatly missed in her large circle of friends, and in the lodge of the I.O.O.F. of which she was a worthy member in the ladies' degree. But she is gone from among us, forever, and may we who survive her imitate her kindness of heart and life, that we may be useful members of society until we are called from our labors on earth to follow our friend to eternity.
