OBITUARIES

Miss Gazeal WALLACE, died at the home of her mother, Mrs. W. S. WALLACE, 
at 112 North Breckenridge street at 6 o'clock this morning of bronchitis. Although the 
deceased had been an invalid for many years the disease from which she suffered manifested 
no alarming symptoms up to within a few minutes of her death which was as painless as it was 
unexpected. She retired to her sleeping apartment last night apparently as well as she has been 
for several months past, expecting a slight cold which she contracted a few weeks ago. 
At 6 o'clock this morning she was seized with an attack of acute bronchitis and expired 
almost instantly. 
Miss WALLACE was born in Americus, Ga., February 10, 1859, consequently died in the 
47th year of her age. She leaves a mother, five brothers and two sisters. 
The funeral will take place at her late home at 9 o'clock tomorrow morning, Rev. J F HARMON 
conducting the obsequies. The burial will be at Oakwood cemetery.
