          We last week announced that  Mrs. [Derexa] Tolbert  had been prostrated by a stroke of paralysis.  She died on Thursday night.  On Friday  Mrs. [Margaret] Maholm, wife of  John Maholm, of this city, was similarly attacked and died on Sabbath evening after great suffering.  The fore part of last week  Mrs. [Eliza] Barngrover, wife of  James Barngrover, of Sugar Creek township, and mother-in-law of  John Morrison, Jr. of this city, was attacked by rheumatism, which went to the brain, and she died after one or two days suffering.  These were all ladies of medium age, and generally esteemed by their kindness of heart and Christian virtues, and with the exception of Mrs. Tolbert, they leave quite large families, and all a large circle of devoted friends to mourn their loss.
          It is seldom that a community is startled by the sudden death of so many of its respected residents in the space of a week, and we have no recollection of a similar calamity befalling this vicinity.
