DEATH OF MRS. CHARLES BARTLETT
The many friends of Mrs. Charles H. Bartlett were inexpressibly shocked and pained to learn of that estimable lady’s death which occurred last evening at 6 o’clock at her home corner Fourth and Chestnut streets. Her illness dates back to three weeks ago and as her affliction gradually grew more aggravated that dread ailment typhoid fever developed. For several days her condition was alarming and those near and dear to her alternated between hope and fear as symptoms became slightly better or worse. The best of medical aid and affectionate care were bestowed in vain and all suspense, anxiety and fears ceased when at six o’clock last evening conscious and resigned the patient closed her eyes on scenes earthly and her spirit winged its flight to the great beyond.
The deceased was born and educated in this city and spent all her life in our midst, attaining the age of 31 years, 10 months and 5 days. On March 29th, 1885, she was united in marriage to Mr. Bartlett and their union proved a happy one. The deceased was one of Muscatine’s most favored and favorite daughters, beautiful, winsome and beloved, and her untimely death at a time when life seems sweetest and best will carry unfeigned sorrow to the hearts of many by whom she was known and esteemed. Socially, she belonged to Irving Temple of Pythian Sisters, being a charter member of the order, in which she always manifested much interest, and religiously was a conscientious and consistent member of the Congregational church. Her mother, Mrs. H.H. Hine, one sister, Mrs. M.M. Stewart, of Iowa City, and two brothers, Newton H. and Edward L., of this city mourn with the bereaved husband over her death and will be tendered the sincere condolence of numerous friends in this crushing affliction.
