MRS. J.C. CRAVENS DEAD.
Brief Sketch of Her Life by a Friend
Typhoid the Cause.
Mrs. J.C. Cravens died at her home on Market street last night from typhoid
fever. The following by a friend was written this morning:
The announcement of the death of this estimable lady will send a thrill of
genuine sorrow to the hearts of all who knew her. She was born in Arkansas, near
Imboden, Lawrence county, and in her early youth moved to Batesville, where she
lived until her marriage with Maj. J.C. Cravens in August, 1864. Her father,
Hon. Robert Smith, was in his time one of the most prominent citizens of
ARkansas. He was a member of the convention which framed the first constitution
of that state. Mrs. Cravens was a noble type of a Southern woman. The better she
was known by her friends the better she was loved. Her characteristics were
loyalty to her friends, hatred of shams, love and devotion to her family, her
church, and the cause of Christ generally. Married when the entire country was
in the throes of civil war, and to one who took a prominent part in it, she
shaped and moulded his destiny with a loving hand and reared a family whose
brightest heritage from this on will be the memory of her exalted character.
Her departure has left an aching boid in the wide circle of her friends which
can never be filled till they meet her in the "Life Eternal." She met the "Great
Enemy" calmly. He had no terrors for her, and quietly, almost painlessly, she
passed away. Her only regret was the separation from her loved ones. The future
has no fears.
"Forever with the Lord,
Amen, so let it be;
Life from the dead is in that word
-- A Friend.
The funeral will take place from the family residence, No. 497 Market street,
tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon at 3 o'clock.
Mrs. Lucy A. Timmons, residing near Republic, died last night, aged about 60

shortly. Rev. O.B. Jones, pastor of the Benton Avenue, will succeed Rev. Beggs
as presiding elder and Rev. W.M. Bewley, of the Colorado conference, takes Mr.
Jones' place. Mr. Beggs is arranging his affairs and expects to leave for the
Centennial state as soon as practicable. The Leader is sorry to lose such an
able divine and congratulates the people who will have the benefit of his
Criminal Court Docket.

expires. The most important case is that of state vs M.C. Hayes, murder in the
first degree. Another interesting and sensational trial will be that of Father
S.J. Hynes vs Father Hogan, criminal libel, on change of venue from Lawrence
