Mrs. Harry Attrill, of Adaville, died Sunday morning after a lingering illness lasting over a year. Several times during; the past year seemingly only a thin veil separated her spirit from the heavenly world, friends would be sent for, but her wonderful vitality kept, her from passing on and she would recover quite nicely. About, two weeks ago she took another turn for the worse and Sunday morning she gave up and her soul was ushered into eternity.

The funeral services were held yesterday in the U. B. Church at Adaville and her body was laid to rest in the quiet church yard nearby.

Mrs. Attrill was a splendid woman, hospitable and kind to everyone and many from near and far attended the funeral to and show their respect to the memory of a faithful friend.
