Higgins. - The news of the death of Mr. William M. Higgins, which cane Sunday, was the source of great surprise and sorrow. He had only been sick for a few days, but his disease was inflammation of the bowels and hemorrhage and rapidly destroyed his vital forces. The end came at 4 A. M. on the 18th and yesterday after a service at Walnut Flat at 1 0'clock by Rev. A. V. Sizemore, a large procession of friends followed the remains to their last resting place in Buffalo cemetery. Mr. Higgins was born in this county Dec. 24, 1820 and was therefore a little over 73 years of age. He joined the Baptist church when quite young and in all the long years of his life, lived a conscientious Christian, which is equivalent to saying that he was an upright and excellent citizen in every way, honored by his neighbors and loved by his friends. Of the family there are still a full brother and sister, Mrs. W. F. Goggin, of Somerset, and S. S. Higgins, of Oregon, and a half brother, Mr. Tim W. Higgins, of Louisville. Mr. Higgins was twice married, his first wife being a sister of the last, and were Misses Catherine and Elizabeth McRoberts. Two children was the result of the first union and three of the latter, the survivors being Messrs. John A. and W. H. Higgins and Mrs. George D. Hopper, all excellent citizens who honor their worthy parentage. The sympathy of many loving friends is with them in their sudden and sad bereavement, and more especially do they grieve with the widow upon whom the loss more severely falls. May she find the God of consolation promised by Him Who is too wise to err, to good to be unkind. An affectionate, loving family has been broken up on earth to be reunited, let us pray, in a land that is fairer than day.
