Death of Mrs. Dixon.

Mrs. Drew Dixon died at her home, at Lima, N. C., Sunday evening Jan. 28, after a lingering illness of some months.

Sister Dixon was an active worker in the Methodist church, a kind generous neighbor, a fond wife and mother. She leaves five children and a devoted husband.

Only a few days ago before her death she expressed a readiness to go home and said she was “leaving all with Jesus.”
