One of Madison's Highly Esteemed Residents, Died This morning After Long Illness.

The death of Mrs. Julia Covell Jones occurred this morning at 3 o'clock. Death was not unexpected as she had been ill for a long time of a complication of diseases, which rendered her incapable of much activity.

She was born in Hanover 72 years ago, but has lived in this city since she was a small child. She was of a quiet and unassuming disposition, but greatly loved by a large circle of friends. All through her long illness Mrs. Jones proved herself to be a true servant of the Master, never once murmuring against His will in all her sufferings. She was a member of Trinity M.E. Church.

Mrs. Jones was the widow of William C. Jones, a native of Lexington, Ky., who has been dead many years. Their only child, Miss Byrde Jones, survives her mother, and whose devotion and tender care have brightened her many days of suffering. Her sister, Miss Mary Covell, also survives her.

The funeral will be at 9 o'clock Monday morning from the house, with interment in Springdale cemetery.

"She has reached the land, through patient toil
Where tired feet, with sandals loosed, may rest,
When we shall clearly see and understand,
I think that we shall say, God knew the best."
