IN  MEMORIAM
----------
          Hattie,  wife of  William L. McCarty,  was born November 5th, 1864, and departed this life at her father's residence, E. K. Parrish, near Kokomo, Howard county, Indiana, October 25, 1884, aged nineteen years, eleven months and twenty days.  The remains were interred in the Lewis Creek Cemetery, Tuesday, October 28, 1884.  One week ago she left her home to visit her father.  On departing her condition was reported as convalescent, not thinking that Death was so near that he would claim one whose life was of usefulness in the present.  While we knew her disease, consumption, was a character which baffles all treatment, we still hoped for a respite of at least a few months.  To the day of her death she was patient in suffering, cheerful and entertaining in conversation, loving and affectionate in home circles.  On a few occasions she had referred to the possible results of her disease and with a fond desire expressed for the welfare of her husband and child.
          The following persons were the pall bearers Tuesday at the funeral of Mrs. Lewis McCarty:  J. D. Smith,  David A. Plunkitt,  C. F. Mahaffy,  T. D. Stephens,  A. M. Wilson  and  J. H. Eades.  The funeral was the largest that ever took place in that part of the county, the procession being over a mile in length.
