[Newspaper gossip tidbit]
Wm. Martin Sr., narrowly escaped serious injury one day last week.  While standing in a wagon the horse
made a sudden start, throwing the old gentleman violently to the ground.  For a time it was feared he
was seriously hurt but at this writing is improving.

[Newspaper obit]
A Sudden Summons
Died- At her home in this city, on Monday afternoon, about two o'clock, Mrs. Elizabeth Harris, wife of Mr.
J. D. Harris, in the fifty-second year of her age.  Since last February, Mrs. Harris has been suffering with
dropsy.  On the day of her sudden demise she seemed to manifest unusual exhuberance of spirits all
forenoon, and at the noon meal partook heartily of food, cleaned up the dinner dishes, and between one
and two o'clock, feeling somewhat fatigued, repaired to the front room with her daughter, and lay down
across the foot of the bed, but in a little while she was discovered to be in a dying condition.  A near
neighbor was at once called in, but life was soon extinct.  Funeral services were held at the house
Tuesday afternoon, at two o'clock, at the conclusion of which the remains were carried to Grapeville
cemetery for interment.
Mrs. Harris has been a resident of Earlington for eight or ten years past, and while not a member of any
visible church, was in early life christened in the Presbyterian church, but has for many years leaned
toward the Methodist faith and doctrine.  For several months past she has manifested a deep concern
regarding her future state, and has often been known to engage in earnest prayer even in the dead hours
of night.  Let us hope that all is well with her soul.
The scene was indeed a touching one, to thus see a once happy home so bereft of wife and mother, as
the grief-stricken husband, son and daughter bowed around the casket of their dear departed one.  May
that God - our God - who shapes the destinies of individuals as well as nations, bless and soothe
these troubled hearts, as He alone can do.

[Newspaper obit]
Sterm - On Tuesday morning, Oct. 24, 1893, at 6 o'clock. Mrs. A. J. Sterm nee Lottie Harvey, aged 26
years and 11 days.Funeral Thursday at 2 p.m. from the residence of the parents of the deceased,

Another Citizen Passeth.
William Jeffery died at his home in this city on Thursday, Dec. [smudged]th 1906. aged 65 years and 7
He was born in April, 1841, in the town of Camborne, Cornwall, England, and came to this country with
his parents when about 16 years of age.  At the age of 17 he went to California, and after a stay of nine
years returned to Mineral Point, where he remained the rest of his life.  In October, 1868, Mr. Jeffrey
was married to Miss Kate Trevarrow, and of this union were born six children, of which number the
following survive: Mrs. Graham of Beloit, Pearl Jeffrey of Battlesville, I. T., Mrs. Quirk, Mrs. Marr, Mrs.
Harris and Miss Willa Jeffrey, all of this city.  Besides the children he leaves to mourn his departure, his
widow, two brothers and three sisters.
Mr. Jeffrey was a mason by trade, of quiet and unpretentious ways.  The well attended funeral on Sunday
testified to the esteem in which the deceased was held.

[Newspaper tidbit]
Wm. Martin Sr., was eighty years old on Thursday, Dec. 21, and in honor of the occasion a number of his
friends met at his home to help him spend the day.  The old gentleman is enjoying good health and is a
spry as a man of fifty years, being able to jump a broomstick four feet and three inches high on his
birthday just to show the boys how nimble he is.  Mr. and Mrs. Martin are held in the highest esteem by a
large circle of friends, both old and young.
