Monday last at her home near Madison occurred the death of Mrs. Walter Lawrence. Following the birth of her son about fifteen days before her death, erysipelas set up and the patient continued to grow worse until the time of her death.

The funeral services were conducted at the grave Tuesday afternoon, by Rev. R.L. Bolton. A choir composed of Mrs. Albert Foster, Mrs. Nall, Mr. W.C. Thompson, and Mr. W.C. Hemperley sang: "Sometimes We'll Understand" and "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." The services were brief, but appropriate and touching, and were well attended. Interment was in the family lot of Fairview cemetery. The pall bearers were: Messrs. Rob Higginbotham, Grady Dickson, Ed Few, J.B. and Tom Spears, and A.W. Atkinson.

Lady Verona Askew was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Askew and was born and reared in Greene County. For nine years she taught in the public schools of Greene and Morgan counties, teaching the school at Centennial, in this county, for two years, where she endeared herself to both pupils and patrons. Last Christmas she was married to Mr. W.H. Lawrence, of this county, who with a two weeks old baby, survives her. She is also survived by her parents and two sisters, Mrs. Stovall, of Oconee county, and Mrs. Watson, of Union Point, and by a brother, Frank Askew, who is now in the overseas service.

The deceased was a noble Christian woman and those that are bereaved have the sympathy of many friends in her exceedingly sad death.
