DEATH OF MRS DREW ALVAREZ

At the family home on Call Street was gathered on Monday afternoon one of the saddest assemblies that has been in this city for years. The occassion was the burial of Mrs. Drew W. ALVAREZ, a friend or relative of nearly all the citizens of Starke and this section of Bradford County. Though the funeral was set for 4 o'clock that relatives from Jacksonville might arrive, at 3 o'clock many had come and as the service went on the sidewalk, as well as the house and porches, were lined with our townsmen who met to pay their last respects to their departed friend.

The simple service under the direction of Rev. Blanchard LAW, of the Baptist church, being over, Director Jones and the pallbearers took charge, the long procession formed and moved to Crosby Cemetery. Before the open grave the last rites were said, the note of spiritual as well as temporal preparation for death was again sounded and the crowd dispersed.

The chief mourners and those officiating were left as the new mound was strewn with flowers. The singers assisting the minister were Mrs. J. E. FUTCH, Misses Emma DARBY and Doris LAW, Messrs. O. A. ANDREU and J. F. KICKLITER. The pallbearers were Major MATTHEWS, Col. PEEK, J. W. MORGAN, Col. D. E. KNIGHT, N. T. RITCH, F. P. SHAFFER, J. E. WILSON, J. F. KICKLITER, M. LEVITON and W. J. EPPERSON.

Special thought was shown by Mrs. T. N. LIMBAUGH and Mrs. J. F. KICKLITER who stayed in the threatening rain to cover the grave with flowers. The floral donations that bore cards showing sympathy were from Mrs. Frank HOOVER, Mrs. E. T. CAMPBELL, J. W. ALVAREZ, B. M. DOWLING, Mrs. N. D. WAINWRIGHT, Mrs. Grover SWEAT, Mrs. D. L. ALVAREZ, Mrs. Paul CANOVA, Mrs. A. H. FREEMAN, Mr. and Mrs. A. B. WILLIAMS, Mrs. John UGLOW, Mrs, E. E. CANOVA, Mrs. T. N. LIMBAUGH, Mrs. Julia WAINWRIGHT.

The death of Mrs. ALVAREZ, which occured Sunday afternoon at 5:30 o'clock, was a great shock to the community. She had ben ill about two weeks, but it was not thought that her condition was critical until a short time before her death. She had developed pnuemonia, and when her heart became seriously involved she sank rapidly until her death ensued at the hour mentioned.

The deceased the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Owen E. ALVAREZ, well known residents of the vicinity of Starke. She was 46 years of age and had lived the greater part of her life in Starke, being well known and very highly esteemed by almost all residents of the town. She was a kind-hearted, generous neighbor and a devoted wife and mother. She toiled with her hands and yearned with a mother's love for the comfort and well-being of her household.

In her passing the town loses a woman of sterling character and worth. Mrs. ALVAREZ is survived by her husband and two sons, besides a large number of other relatives. To these is extended the very sincere sympathy of the entire community.


CARD OF THANKS

We wish in this way to express our sincere thanks and lasting gratitude to the many friends who have been so kind to us in our great bereavement. We especially thank Mrs. LEVITON, who ministered so faithfully and tenderly to our loved one throughout her illness, and Mrs. Mallory ALVAREZ for his constant assistance. No one ever had the sympathy and assistance of better friends and we appreciate them. one and all. D. W. ALVAREZ and Sons.

IN MEMORIAM

MRS. NANCY ALVAREZ

The world has always had its heros and their deeds of valor and daring are recorded in song and story among all nations of the earth, and in all languages. Their forms and features are preserved on the canvass and in the marble, for the instruction and benefit of generations yet unborn. But it is the faithful, humble family lives --- the hands that rock the cradles and "teach the young knees their kneeling" around the home hearths, that bring the millenium nearer day by day. Not he who has "slain his tens of thousands," but he or she who has reared a worthy citizen to fill an honorable and useful part in life, it is, who deserves a victor's crown. And when that life is extended into a ripe old age, a living witness of God's faithful keeping and loving care, the world is enriched by every year that his saints with hoary-haired temples adorned dwell therein. Such was the life and character of Mrs. Nancy ALVAREZ, who died at Starke, Fla., on Wednesday, Jan. 12, 1898, at the residence of her son Mr. J. G. ALVAREZ. She was a woman remarkable for her sterling virtues, her practical good sense, her faithfullness to God, her family and her home. The mother of fifteen children, eight of whom survive her, men and women of prominence, socially, in business, in religion, and the qualities which give loud testimony to a faithful mother heart as the prime source of their character and success. Her sons and grand-sons, no less than her daughters and grand-daughters, are among Bradford county's most indispensible citizens. She was buried in the same grave with her husband, Mr. Joseph ALVAREZ, who died in 1892, and whose body was removed to its present resting place in order that they might lie together in their last long sleep. Mrs. ALVAREZ was born March 21, 1821, and was consequently 77 years of age at her demise. In the hearts of more than 100 descendants her epitath is engraved. "Her children arise up and call her blessed."

DEATH'S SHINING MARK

Died, on the morning of the 15th instant, Hon Silas L. NIBLACK, of Columbia County, in his fifty eighth year of age. Hon. Silas L. NIBLACK was born in Camden County, Georgia, March 17th, 1825. In his early childhood he moved to Columbia county, and has since been identified with the State becoming one of its most popular and influential citizens.


In 1849 he was united in marriage to Miss Attalia SCARBOROUGH, of Columbia county. For successive years Mr. NIBLACK held the responsible position of Judge of Probate of our county, and in 1872 was elected as Member of Congress from this State; Florida at the time being entitled to only one representative. His election was the first Democratic victory gained in the State after reconstruction and it is a monument to his immense popularity and the appreciation of his integrity and sterling qualities by his fellow men. The Congress to which he was elected, being a Republican Congress, Mr. NIBLACK was refused his seat until within a few days of the end of that congressional term, and thus the State practically lost the service of one of its ablest servants. In 1879 he was elected as Senator from this district to the Legislature of our State, and did yeoman service for his constituents during his term in office. It was during this time that we learned to know and appreciate the estimable qualities possessed by the deceased.....(long article) While as people, we deeply mourn his loss, we feel that the Ruler of All directs for the best. So mote it be! - Lake City Reporter.
