   The hearts of many friends are bowed in sorrow at the passing of the beloved spirit of Mrs. Mary Emma Coble TUCKER, wife of James Thompson TUCKER, at the home of her father, W. L. COBLE in East Centreville.  The end came peacefully on Sunday morning at 1 o'clock, following several weeks of illness with typhoid fever.
   Funeral services were conducted at the home on Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, in charge of Rev. James E. Woodward, pastor of the Methodist church, and by Rev. Alvin L. Bates, pastor of the First Baptist church.  Interment followed at Centreville cemetery.

COBLE.  She was 42 years of age and was married about ten years ago to Mr. TUCKER who then lived at Winfield, La., and was a former citizen of Perry County.  After eight years residence at Winfield, Mr. and Mrs. TUCKER and their two children returned to this county, where they have since made their home although Mr. TUCKER had recently returned to Winfield where he was employed when summoned by the news of his wife's illness.
   Mrs. TUCKER was a woman of many noble traits of character, a devoted wife and mother, and beloved by hosts of friends.  She was known thruout her girlhood on Beaverdam, this county, as Miss Mamie COBLE and her death brings a profound sorrow wherever she was known.
