ObituaryThursday morning at seven o'clock Mrs. C. R. King, of Espuela, died of locked bowels at the Nichols Sanitarium, following an operation performed Wednesday night in the hope of relieving her condition. Mrs. King was well and hearty until Tuesday night she suffered the attack, suffering greatly until Wednesday night it was conclusive that only an operation could save her life, and this proved too late to relieve her condition.
Mrs. King leaves a husband and three children at home and one married. She held a policy of one thousand dollars in Spur Mutual, which was paid within a few hours after her death. The remains will be interred Friday in the Spur Cemetery.

Card of ThanksWe take this method of thanking our friends who so kindly and tenderly rendered help and sympathy to us in the death of our wife and mother, who departed this life July 10th. Words cannot express our heart felt thanks and appreciation to our friends for each little deed of kindness rendered us at that time. And we wish to also thank those who assisted my brother's family as well in their sad and trying hour when he passed away on May the 20. Dr. Morris, Nichols and fine and efficient nurses will always have a tender place in our hearts for their kindness rendered us.
We wish also to thank each and every member of the Spur Mutual Life Insurance Association for their cooperation in this good work of which my brother, W.W. King, and my wife were both members and were both paid off at once, and it seems to be a God-send to us in helping us over a rough place.
May God's Richest blessing crown our many friends. We have not words to express our appreciation to them for their many favors.
