Mrs. Belle Anderson Passed Away
Yesterday Morning After
Mrs. Belle Moore Anderson died yesterday morning at 2 o'clock at her home on East Sixteenth street. Her death was not unexpected, as she had been very low for several days.
About six weeks ago, while walking across the floor in her room, she stepped on a pin which pierced through the sole of her slipper and entered the ball of her foot. The wound thus received seemed slight and but little attention was paid to it at the time. A few days afterwards her limb began to pain her and Doctor Anderson applied the usual remedies of the profession in such cases, but without avail. The wound grew worse and worse, and on the 18th of this month Doctors Blakey and Woodward were called in. The wound was so malignant that an operation was deemed necessary. Her physicians found shortly afterwards that her whole system was becoming poisoned and every effort was used to stop its progress. For a number of days, she was unable to retain any food or stimulants and she gradually grew worse and worse. All hopes of her recovery were abandoned by friends and physicians Monday night. She lingered until yesterday morning, when she quietly passed away, surrounded by her family and devoted friends in attendance at her bedside.
Mrs. Anderson was married to Dr. Anderson on the 14th of last July. She was one of the most popular belles of the city, where she was reared, beautiful and accomplished, and possessing in an eminent degree such charms of manner that endeared her to all who came under her influence. She was a member of the Christian church from childhood and always took an active part in the work of her church.
A feeling of sadness pervades the entire community at the untimely end of a life that hitherto was all sunshine and had such bright hopes for future usefulness.
The hearts of our people go out in sympathy for her devoted husband, sorrowing mother and loving brothers, who now walk in the shadow of death.
Funeral will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Christian church.
