MRS. C. A. ATWOOD OF DURAND, DEAD

Wife of Dr. C. A. Atwood, Victim of Tuberculosis, Passes Away Yesterday Morning--Born and Bred in Durand--Deceased had Spent Entire Life in Nearby Town.

Durand, July 21.-- Died, at her home in Durand, on Wednesday morning, Mrs. Dr. C. A. Atwood.

A sadder death has not taken place in Durand for some time than that which chronicles the passing of Mrs. Hattie Waggoner Atwood, wife of Dr. C. A. Atwood and only daughter and child of John Waggoner. Mrs. Atwood has been ill for nearly two years battling with that dread disease, tuberculosis, and everything possible has been done to overcome its workings, but to no avail, and Wednesday morning saw her sufferings brought to an end.

Harriet Waggoner was born and raised in Durand and spent her younger years in attending the public high school, after which she was bookkeeper for a number of years in the Barningham grocery, giving up this position to be united in marriage to Dr. Clarence A. Atwood, dentist. To their union was born one little girl, Florence Lucile, now 5 years of age, who is left without a mother's care and love. Mrs. Atwood was a singer of some note, having a sweet alto voice and was always in demand for all occasions in that capacity. She counted her friends in Durand by the score, for she was of a sweet, amiable disposition, never speaking harshly of others, but beloved to all and by all. Besides the husband and little daughter, Mrs. Atwood leaves her father, an aged grandmother and a host of other relatives to mourn her passing.
