Mrs. Mary Jane Howeal Dead
Another Good Woman Has Gone to Her Last Reward

After along and painful illness of two years of patient suffering the spirit of Mrs.Mary Jane Howell passed into the realm of peace at the family home near White Oak, Sunday night at 9 o'clock. Deceased was 70 years old and united with the Methodist church during her girlhood having been a consecrated member for sixty years, and died in the happy assurance of a blissful immortality. Mrs. Howell was born near her late home, and throughout the sunny years of her young maidenhood, and in all the fullness of tender womanhood an ripe age, she was loved and adored for the cordial sweetness and her gentle unobtrusive intercourse with friend which will cause a halo of undimmed radience fraught with fondest recollections to linger in the hearts of all who knew her..

Death underall conditions gives birth to feelings of sadness, even when visited upon the bowed and weakened shoulders of those who bear the deeds of a long life, but it will be comforting and consoling to those who loved her best, when they realized that a glorious reward can but await those who bore the cross so faithfully, and whose greatest joy on earth was to scatter rays of sunshine along the sometimes gloomy pathway of life. Truly a good woman will reap the reward that awaits the faithful.

Mrs. Howell was the mother of ten children, five of whom are left to mourn her loss, and among whom her place can never be supplied. These are Mrs. Mary Price, Mrs. A.P. McLeod, Miss Ella Howell, and Messrs. George and R.L. Howell.

The funeral held yesterday afternoon, the exercises being conducted by Rev. J. A. Jones of the city, and her remains were cosigned to their last resting place in the family burial ground at Rocky Mount Church.

The Sate of Alabama
Barbour County
To Hon. J. S. Williams Judge of Probate for said county, the application of
the undersigned administrator of the estate of Abner Belcher deceased
respectfully showeth that said deceased died possessed of thefollowing named
negroes.  to wit-One negro man named Larkin, one woman named Phillis, and her
three children Jim, four years old, Martha two years old, and the third an
infant about four weeks old.  Larkin is about twenty eight, and Phillis about
twenty two years old. Petitioner alleges that it will be more for the
benefit of said estate to sell negroes, than not to sell them for the
following reasons - The heirs of said deceased - five in number, are all
minors, and under ten years of age.  Petitioner cannot hire Phillis and have
the hirer to pay the present enormous taxes and furnish clothing too.  Larkin
cannot be hired for anything over a trifle, if hirer has to pay taxes and
provide clothing, as is usual in the hire of Negroes.  It will be more than
ten years before a distribution can take place in the regular course of law. 
Said Negroes can now be sold at high figures say nine or ten thousand
dollars, which will be more profitable to the children than the hire of the
negroes would be after taking out the taxations and incidental expenses.  For
these reasons, petitioner ask of your Honor an order authorizing him to sell
said negroes for the benefit of the estate.
