Obituary-Mr. T.C. Gulley, died at his home at McCreary, Sunday, December 28, 1902. He was able to go to his meals until Friday night, when he was taken ill. Saturday, bronchial pneumonia set up and he died Sunday at one o'clock. His death came as a shock, to both family and friends, although he had been sick so much. His health had been on the decline for several years, and two years ago he moved to Denver, Col., in hopes that change of climate would bring restoration of his health. The sudden change of temperature there proved too much for him and he sank rapidly. After a stay of three weeks there, he and his family hurried back to Kentucky.

For months he was confined to his bed, but recovered suffficiently to attend to business again. During the past summer he was quite low, but rallied and was able to ride out. He had a happy, cheerful disposition--a hearty hand-shake for all he met and a cordial welcome for all who came to his home. He was widely known and had a large circle of friends. With the exception of a few years spent in Cincinnati and Covington, his life was spent in Garrard county.

The most beautiful side of his life was shown in his family, where he was a loving father and husband. Eleven years ago, he married Miss Maggie K., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.B. Brown, Sen., and she, with two children, Stanley, aged nine, and Edna, aged seven, are left to mourn their irreparable loss. The affinity between him and his wife was perfect. During all his ill health her attention and care was something beautiful. She was faithful to him to the last, never leaving his bed side after he took sick. He was conscious to the end, and knew her after he could not speak. About ten years ago he confessed his faith in Christ, and was the first clerk of the New Antioch church, and this was the first funeral preached there. He worked for the good of the church and was ever interested in its welfare. He will be missed there and in the community, but the greatest loss will be to his wife and little ones.

In the death of "Coley" Gulley, as he was familiarly called, the democratic party has lost one of its best and most enthusiastic members. On account of the very inclement weather his remains were deposited in the vault; after a few days they will be laid to rest beside his father, as he requested some days ago. May God comfort the hearts of the loved ones who weep, as only He can.--Weep not, as those without hope, he is not dead, but sleeping; he is only gone before to await your coming. The sympathy and love of all go out to his grief-stricken wife and little ones.

The bier was covered with beautiful floral designs--the last tribute from those to whom he was dear. Besides his wife and children, he left his mother, two brothers and a sister. Peace to his ashes.
