TRANSCRIBED TEXT:

It is our sad and painful duty this week to chronicle the death of Mrs. Walter Graves, who died very suddenly at her home last Thursday evening at about nine o'clock, at the age of 49 years. Her death was a great shock to the whole community as she has always enjoyed a good decree of health. During the afternoon previous to her death she complained of having a pain in her chest and in the region of her heart. Shortly after she retired for the evening her daughter happened to notice that she breathed quite unnatural and summoned help immediately, but it was of no avail, her spirit had flow to a better land. Deceased was born in England, Nov. 18, 1848, and leaves her husband, one daughter and one son, three sisters and three brothers to mourn her departure. She was a dutiful wife, an affectionate mother and a faithful member of the M.E. church, always trying to do good and carrying sunshine wherever she went and was loved by all who knew her. Her funeral took place last Sunday under auspices of the M.E. church, Rev. Knudson officiating, assisted by Revs. Hoffman of Colby, and Thompson, of Granton. To the broken hearted family we offer our deepest sympathy. The esteem in which the deceased was held was demonstrated by the large concourse of people that followed the remains to their las resting place. May she rest in peace.
