“Doings in Bartow— Kingston.”

Last week a mother in Israel was taken from us by death. Mrs. C. W. Howard departed this life at the old homestead at Spring Bank, where she had lived with her daughters, Misses Mary, F. T. and S. W. Howard, since the death of her honored husband, Col. Wallace Howard. She was 85 years old, dearly beloved by all who knew her. She fell out of the door and was so badly hurt she could not rally. The community all tender their sympathies to the bereaved children and grandchildren in the great loss of their dear old mother.

Mrs. Chas. W. Howard Dead.

Expired Wednesday From the Effects of a Fall Received.

Mrs. Charles Wallace Howard, a lady well known all over the state, died at her home in Cement, Ga., Wednesday afternoon as the result of a fall which she received a few weeks ago. About three weeks ago Mrs. Howard was walking down the steps of her house when she tripped and fell, receiving a hard blow on her head.

She immediately lost consciousness and remained in that condition until she died. The physician who was called pronounced her ailment concussion of the brain. It will be remembered that her daughter, Mrs. George H. Waring, met her death about two months ago by being thrown from her carriage. Major Waring is still on crutches as a result of the same accident.

Mrs. Howard was formerly a Miss Franklin, of Athens, Ga.,, where she was raised and where she was one of the most accomplished young ladies of that city. Later in life she married Rev. Charles Wallace Howard, who was before his death one of the leading ministers of the state. The funeral services were held Thursday afternoon and her remains were interred at Spring Bank, her country home.
