OBITUARIES
Agnes Collins
Mrs. Agnes COLLINS, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Henry PIPER, 
about three miles south of the city, yesterday morning, aged 84 years. Deceased 
had been sick for some time and her condition was aggravated by a shock to her 
nervous system by the burning of the residence of her son, Elijah COLLINS, in 
Dodds township, about a week ago, where she was staying. She was conveyed 
to the home of Mr. and Mrs. PIPER, but she gradually grew worse till yesterday 
morning when death came to her relief. Mrs. COLLINS was born in Indiana, but 
had been a resident of this state for many years. Her surviving children are Charles, 
Isaac, Elijah and Willard Collins, Mrs. John GRAY, Mrs. Lou MORGAN, Mrs. 
Henry PIPER and Mrs.Susan KEATON. The funeral was held at Wolf Prairie 
church this afternoon, Rev. LAWRENCE conducting the obsequies.
