A sad death occurred near Kingston on the morning of the 24 th of last month. Mrs. James McGuire, after several weeks of suffering, passed away. Mr. James McGuire, a former citizen of this place, but now a locomotive engineer on the L., N. O. & T. railroad, at Vicksburg, Miss., with his wife and two bright little children, has been visiting friends and relatives in this vicinity during the warm season. Several weeks since Mrs. McGuire was stricken down with fever. She was treated by Drs. Bowdoin, Battey and Calhoun, and all their skill was baffled. Her mother, Mrs. Ferguson, one sister and three brothers were wired and all arrived in time to see her and talk with her before she was taken from them. Her remains were taken to Mississippi for internment. It was a sorrowing procession from the residence of Mrs. McGuire to Hall’s Station, where the party boarded the evening train with the loved one that was so cheerful and happy only a few weeks ago, now a dead body, but a living soul. We tendered our sympathies to the bereaved ones.
