Miss Mary was about seven-
teen years old; was a very mod-

brilliant attributes of mind. She
was a graduate of the Caldwell
high school, having received a
diploma at the close of the last

honor. While not a member of
any church, she was a professed
Christian and died in the hope
of a better world.

are grieved at her death and
who feel the warmest sympathy
for the afflicted relatives.
