          A telegram was received here last Saturday announcing the death of Mrs. Lydia Brinson, which occurred at Sabetha, Kansas on the day mentioned.  Deceased was a daughter of  Joseph L. Martz, the well known merchant tailor of this city, and was the wife of  Mr. L. B. Brinson, formerly a citizen of this place.  Mrs. Brinson was on a visit to her parents here a short time ago, and returned home sick, continuing to grow worse until death put an end to her suffering.  The remains were brought back from Kansas and interred in the City cemetery here on Tuesday last.  The relatives and friends of the deceased lady have our sympathies in their bereavement.
