Miss Mamie Tolson died late yesterday evening. The news of her death was a surprise to a great many, as it was not generally known she was sick until yesterday morning. Miss Tolson was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Tolson. Miss Tolson was very popular among the young people, and was the chief promoter of the pleasure of her associates. A good girl, of a gentle, sweet disposition and loved by all. Though her death causes great grief, we bow in humble submission to the divine will of a higher power above.
