Mrs. Niola Goodwin, wife of J. S. Goodwin, after months of great suffering, died at 10 p. m., Aug. 13.  Her funeral was preached by Rev. W. R. Tuggle, at 2 p. m., the 14th inst.  She was laid to rest in Kingston cemetery. She was conscious to the last, and bid her husband and little son, father, mother, brothers, sisters and friends in the room, farewell, and exhorted them to meet her in Heaven.  She called her father John Murchison, and told him she could not see him –could only see Jesus –she was passing through the dark valley and shadow of death.  Only a few minutes before her spirit took its flight she waved her hand to her bereaved loved ones.  She was a member of the Baptist church, lived as a Christian liveth and died as a Christian dieth.  The entire community are in great sympathy with the three bereaved families.  With our great sorrow and trials we have cause of great rejoicing on account of the victorious death of our friends.
