Mrs. Richard T. SHANES of Only, Is Victim of Acute Condition; Burial at Cemetery South of Coble

   Mrs. Gladys Beard SHANES, 20 years of age and the wife of Richard T. SHANES of near Only, died at Edwards Infirmary on Friday evening after a short and critical illness.  The remains were buried on Saturday afternoon at the Horseshoe Bend cemetery, 7 miles south of Coble, a short service being held at the grave.
   Suffering intensely and in what was said to be a critical condition, the victim of an illness which has an aspect of tragedy, was brought here in a desperate effort to save the life of the young woman.  A weakened condition is said to have prevented the expected reaction following an operation, and a period of unconsciousness was followed by a peaceful passing into eternity.
   Mrs. SHANES was a daughter of the late Sid BEARD and Mrs. Josie Hill Beard THARP of Nashville.  Besides her husband she is survived by two daughters, Elizabeth aged 5 years, and Mary aged 3.  She was born in this county and later moved to Lewis County, where she was married at the age of fourteen years.  Many friends in both counties are grieved at the death of the beloved young woman.
