OBITUARY:Rockwall, Tex., Aug. 12.--Col. W. D. BARRINGER died at his home here last night at 10:30. For the past ten years he has suffered from sciatic rheumatism in a degree that few human beings are ever called upon to endure. His case baffled all medical skill. He was a man than whom no one was more highly respected and even reverenced by his fellow citizens. He commanded a North Carolina regiment and fought bravely during the late war. He was by birth a North Carolinian, came to Texas in 1870, was district and county clerk of this county for eight years. His remains were interred according to the rites of masonry this afternoon.
