Death of Mrs. I. F. Wikle.

Mrs. I. F. Wikle died at the residence of her father, Mr. R. A. McMillan, in Talladega, Ala., on Wednesday evening, the 8th instant.  She had been ill for several months; but up to the time she was seized with the fatal malady, was the picture of health and womanly vigor and strength.  Her disease seemed to baffle the skill of her physicians, and in its ravages yielded not to their treatment, until at last her pure noble life, sapped of all vitality, succumbed to the inevitable.  She bore her afflictions with truly Christian fortitude.

The deceased was a most estimable woman, possessing all the qualities of the pure, true, noble and the good.  Her life was a beautiful example of filial devotion.  As a young wife, she was thoroughly consecrated to the duties and obligations she assumed; as such – loving, loyal and true.  Always striving to make home happy, even anticipating the wants of her devoted husband.  As a mother she was gentle, kind and affectionate. To those to whom she was nearest, her loss is irreparable.  She leaves two little boys, one aged three years, the other fifteen months.

The husband has the sympathies of a host of friends in this his sore bereavement.
