Death Claims Miss Ruby Athey in her Thirteenth Year

Miss Ruby Athey, the thirteen year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Athey, died at her father's home near town at 2:15 a.m. yesterday, of typhoid pneumonia.

The young lady had been ill but a short time, the symptoms of pneumonia not becoming manifest until the day of her death.  She was of a kind and loving disposition and made many friends among the young people with whom she was associated.

The funeral services will be conducted by Elder Dalton, from the Primitive Baptist Church, Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock and the interment will take place in the town cemetery.
