DEATH OF MRS. ADAMS.
Mrs. J. W. ADAMS, who had been sick sometime at her home northwest of Clinton,
died about noon Wednesday. It was thought stomach trouble was the principal
cause of her sickness, and an operation was to have been performed Tuesday. When
the operation was begun, it was found there was a cancerous growth and that to
complete the operation would be almost useless.
Mr. and Mrs. Adams were married in McLean county about twenty years ago. After a
few years in that county they moved to DeWitt county where they had since lived.
She is survived by her husband and eight children, Elmer, of Padua; Mrs. CLARK,
of Kilbourn; Mrs. Hunsley, and Cecil, of Clinton; Odell, of Lane; Myrtle, Jennie
and William, at home.
Funeral was held at 11 o'clock today in the Clinton M. E. church, conducted by
Rev. Strevey of Waynesville. Burial in Woodlawn cemetery.
