A Sad Occurrence
Six short months ago, Mr. Albert Bailey led to the altar Miss Ida Downey of Ridgeway, Mo.
A short time after their marriage Mrs. Bailey's health began to fail, and last night death released her from her terrible sufferings, which only those who are victims of the dreaded disease, consumption, can understand.
Mrs. Bailey was 18 years old and a native of Mo. She came here last winter and made her home with Mrs. Refine Harvey. After her marriage she lived with her husband and his family at the Union House, where she has been confirmed invalid during her married life. She will be buried tomorrow at Andover, Mo., where her mother lies, and where she requested them to place her.
Her life has been one of simple Christianity, which makes death sweet by the knowledge that there is a happy home awaiting her, where cares and sickness are unknown. Mr. Bailey has the sympathy of his many friends who mourn with him for the loss of his wife.
