News reached here a few days ago of the death of M. L. STRICKLAND. MR. STRICKLAND was visiting in Calhoun County. His death was unexpected and caused from heart failure. He retired and was complaining of a slight headache and next morning was found a corpse. His remains were brought home and interred in a family cemetery on his place near Coldwater.

MR. STRICKLAND was one of our oldest citizens and one of our most prosperous planters. He was always identified with the best interest of his country; gave much of his time to the Church and it's cause. He held the esteem of his fellow man and his death is keenly regretted. The Democrat joins a host of friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved family in their sad bereavement.

Poagville Gleanings 

Several days ago little MOLLIE, daughter of MR. & MRS. L. STRICKLAND, was digging a hole in the yard in order to set out some rose bushes, when by accident she struck her toe with the post hole digger and cut it off, or nearly so; her mother placed it back on bound it and all went well for several days: then little MOLLIE began complaining with her leg hurting, then her back and breast, in a short time she was having spasms accompanied by lock-jaw. Dr. NEELY having been called in the meantime, was faithful and attentive. Rev. Dr. McCAIN was also summoned to assist but, "the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away." So the little star that beamed only about ten summers returned to the God that gave it, Last Wednesday at 1 o'clock. Strange to say the wound never was inflamed nor feverish, but healed up immediately, and good doctors say this was the cause of her death. DR. N. says in all his practice he has never met anything like it. DR. M. says he has met with only one case and that one he could do nothing with.

Thus star by star declines,
Till all are passed away,
as morning higher and higher shines,
To pure and perfect day.
Nor sink those stars in empty night,
But hide themselves in heaven's own light.

We were saddened to learn of the death of Mrs. Strickland. Mrs. Strickland was a woman of true and sterling qualities. Hers was an amiable and pleasant disposition. Her life was one of service and devotion to her children and friends. It had been the writer's privilege to know her for quite a number of years and to be in her company was indeed a pleasure, and an inspiration for good. She is survived by ten children, five daughters, also a host of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our sympathy goes out to them in this dark hour of sorrow. Truly she will be missed.
