On last Tuesday the sad news was received here of the death of Miss Emily Alford, who has been in a Sanitarium at Black Mountain, N.C. for more than a year. Her body was brought home and laid to rest in Carolina cemetery on Thursday afternoon where a large number of friends and relatives paid their last tribute of love and respect to her memory. She became a member of Carolina church at an early age and was a devoted and loyal child of God during her entire life. Hers was a Christian life of gentleness and sweetness and always had a good word and kind thought for everyone.
