DEATH OF MRS. E.D. COBB
Yesterday, after an illness so painful that for four months she was confined to her bed, Mrs. Mary J. Cobb passed from this temporal earth of suffering.

In the household gentleness and graciousness mixing with a gift of real sympathetic love for those around her, caused her friends to be many and dear. She was the wife of Mr. E. D. Cobb of the Illinois Central Railroad, who in his affliction has the sympathy of hundreds of acquaintances.
