EDWARDS, John B. - The country side was shocked to learn of the sudden death of John B Edwards which occurred early Wednesday morning while at work. Mr Edwards, who with Sam Russell, was cutting wood on the Chamberlain place south of town when he was struck with a stroke of apolexy and passed away before a physician arrived. John B Edwards had been a resident of this vicinity for over sixty years having been born here on the old Edwards homestead east of town in 1869 and was reared in this locality. Practically all of his entire life was spent in farming and fruit raising. He sold his farm east of town some years ago and bought a small place in the southeast part of town where he has resided with his family for the past ten years. He leaves to mourn his departure his widow, three sons, and four daughters, three of whom were at home when he passed away. Funeral services were conducted from the home Wednesday afternoon by the Rev T J Justice and burial was made in the IOOF cemetery following the services. His passing was indeed a shock to the entire community and his many friends unite in offering condolences to the bereaved ones.

In our last paper we forgot to say that Uncle Mitch Edwards is dead. He died Sept 20th and was buried at Bethel cemetery near which he had lived for many years. He was among the first settlers of the county. This writer had known him for almost 36 years and has never heard his honor or truthfulness impeached. He died, it is said in the faith and hope of the Christian.
