Died of consumption, at the home of her parents in North Prairie, Mrs. Lulu Savage, aged 19 years, 2 months, 16 days.

Lulu Sanborn-Savage died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. G. Sanborn, at North Prairie, Monday evening, December 23, and was buried from the M. E. Church at Hickory, at 2 p.m. Dec. 26. The interment was in the Union Cemetery.

The deceased was born Sept. 27, 1876, and was therefore, in her twentieth year at the time of her death. On Christmas eve, 1894, she was married to Mortimer Savage, of Hickory, who was bereft of his young wife twenty-three hours before the anniversary of their marriage. The bereaved husband has the sympathy of many friends.

The deceased was a christian a number of years and with her husband was a member of the Hickory M. E. Church. She was gentle, patient and happy and to the last made herself a blessing to the dear ones who cared for her. Five days before she died, at her own request, her mother helped her to the organ, where she played "Anywhere with Jesus I Can Safely Go." The funeral services were conducted by her pastor, W. M. Runyan, assisted by Rev. Mr. Slothower, of Benton. All the mourning ones, have the sympathies of a large circle of friends.
