Cass Station.

Miss Margaret Gilmer, a highly esteemed old lady, died at her home above Cassville Saturday.


Clear Creek.

There has been considerable sickness in the neighborhood and several deaths.

On last Saturday morning at four o’clock Miss Margaret Gilmer died and was interred in the cemetery at Cassville Sunday morning.  She was over seventy years old and has been a great sufferer since the 28th of last July, when she fell and has been confined to her bed ever since.  I have seen her often since then and always found her resigned to the will of her Heavenly Father, whom she has tried to follow uncomplainingly through a long life.  How sweet when this world has nothing more to offer us but pain and suffering, to be released from its bonds and be permitted to rest under the shade of the tree of life, healed of all earthly imperfections and washed in the blood of the lamb.
