Death of Dr. S.L. Bracey.

This community was shocked and and (sic) pained Wednesday evening at the announcement that Dr. S.L. Bracey had died very suddenly at his residence. He had just returned from a hunt with some friends and on reaching home complained of feeling badly. He went to bed and died within half an hour. It could hardly be said that he had passed the prime of life and from external appearances he seemed in the full enjoyment of robust physical health. He was a fine specimen of physical manhood, and his sudden death therefore was a fearful surprise to his numerous friends and "it came like a blast from a summer's bright sky" to his devoted family. To them and his brother (and our friend,) Dr. Walter Bracey, who arrived here only in time to follow his remains to their long resting place, we tender our warmest sympathies.

Dr. Bracey had long been a resident of Monroe, having come here from Mississippi, and he won the respect and esteem of all by his quiet, kindly deportment.
