Death of Mr. Hudson.

Mrs. W. W. Roberts received a telegram Sunday conveying the sad intelligence of the death of her father, Mr. R. W. Hudson, at his home at Sweetwater, Tenn. Mr. Hudson has been sick for the past three months, and Mrs. Roberts has spent the greater part of that time with him, but came home about two weeks ago, on account of the illness of her little baby. Mr. Hudson was seventy-six years old and his illness began with a stroke of paralysis about three months ago.
