    Notes 
    • Mrs. David Sutfin, of Hamilton, who, it will be remembered, came near dying some weeks ago from over-work and improper care of an old breach, and who has since been able to move about the house, and considered quite out of danger, died suddenly last Wednesday morning. It was arranged, in order to allow friends from a distance to arrive, to have the funeral at the residence last Saturday; but owing to the change in the weather and the fact that she was a large, fleshy lady, it was found to be impossible to keep the body so long and Thursday night the necessity of an immediate burial became apparent, and accordingly a few of the neighbors were summoned, and the necessary number to perform the solemn duties repaired to the Decatur cemetery after midnight, and buried the remains. Many difficulties were encountered at the grave from the state of the soil, which fell in from both sides as fast as they could dig it out, and curbing was finally resorted to as a necessity. The funeral was then held at the M. E. church in Decatur, on Sunday at 12 o'clock.
