MRS. WILLIAM PAYNE
Mrs. William Payne died at her home in this city on Monday, February 26, after a lingering illness with paralysis.

Miss Caroline Rowe was born in Peoria, Illinois, in 1836. In 1862 she was married to Wm. Payne. Ten years later the family moved to Chariton where they have since resided. She was the mother of five children, three of whom, Mrs. Hattie Klingner and Joseph Payne of this city, and Mrs. Lillian Brown of St. Joseph, Missouri, are living.
Mrs. Payne had been a member of the Episcopal church for several years and had lived a consistent Christian life. She was well known and was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends.
She was of a kind, generous disposition, ever mindful of the needs of others, and her death is mourned by all. The sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of the entire community.
