Tuesday forenoon Mrs. Ernest Lightcap formerly Miss Blanche Payne, of this place, died at the home of William Kuester and wife, aged twenty-three years, eleven months and eleven days.

About four years ago she married Ernest Lightcap and for the last year or more they have been living in Chicago. Mrs. Lightcap has been ailing nearly all summer and lately she came down here to stay with her sister in the hope that she would regain her health in time. Monday evening, however, she became so much worse that her Chicago physician, M. M. Thompson, was called. He could do nothing though, and she passed her long home Tuesday forenoon, acute Bright's disease being the immediate cause of death.

Six brothers, three sisters and her father survive her. The funeral is tomorrow at the Methodist church at 2 p.m.
