Mrs. Mary Smith passed suddenly from time to eternity at her home in this city about 12 o'clock Wednesday of last week of heart failure. She had expressed herself during the day in her usual health and attended her daily duties about the home. She had just finished her noon meal, and was walking to a couch to rest when the fatal stroked came. Her neighbors had noticed that during the past several months she appeared to be growing quite feeble but were shocked to hear of her sudden death.

Mrs. Mary Smith was born in Granger County, Tenn., in 1840 and since 1880 had lived in this county, the principal part of the time about four miles southeast of Cassville. Some years ago she moved to Cassville where she was spending he remainder of her days. Her husband Cyrus Smith died in 1892.To them were born 5 children, four of whom are living. Adison Smith of Hermiston, Ore., Charley of Kans., Mrs. Harry Bass of Hugo, Okla., and Miss Minnie Smith of Cassville.

Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at the Horner Church, conducted by Rev. J. W. Brock and interment made in the Horner Cemetery

Mrs. Smith was one of the very best of neighbors and one of the this community very best citizens. In her life were found those cardinal virtues which go make up the highest type of motherhood.
