Dr. J. HINSHAW'S mother died at her home at Indianola last week. Dr. HINSHAW was with her for a few days before her death. It will be remembered that we reported the death of his father just last week. He has the sympathy of numerous friends.

Alexander SAWHILL, an old citizen of Walnut Township, died on Sunday last. We did not learn the particulars of his sickness and death.

Harvey Lee, the infant son of Francis and Ida (May) MCDONALD, of Douglas Township, died on April 27th and was buried the next day, with the Rev. W. E. STANLEY officiating at the funeral service. (burial at the McDonald-Chase Cemetery)

Dead Letter List: Miss Evelyn BRAMHALL; Miss Sadie HALL; Miss Jennie POFFINBARGER; Mrs. James STRONG; E. B. ROBINSON.

The community was greatly shocked Tuesday morning to hear that Mrs. T. J. HUDSON had been suddenly stricken down by a failure of the nervous system, for many hours at a time, lying unconscious, then recovering a little, only to relapse in unconsciousness and helplessness again. The greatest fears are entertained that she will not recover.

A. F. MITCHELL, of Ohio Township, was brought before the Commissioners of Insanity on Tuesday and adjudged insane and taken to the asylum at Clarinda. He was brought up one day last week, but the commissioners deeming the evidence insufficient, did not hold him. The next time more conclusive evidence was brought and the finding made accordingly. he was insane once before while living in Colorado. It is a great misfortune for himself and for his family in which they deserve the sympathy of their neighbors and friends.
