Esq. W. G. M. Kinzer, aged 74 years, died at his home near Sawdust Wednesday evening of last week very suddenly. He seemed in his usual health except a severe cold until one hour before his death. On that afternoon he fed the stock and returned to the house, then mended the fire and complained of a severe headache. A member of the family bathed his head with warm water and after he grew easy turned to put the bowl down and on returning to him again found he was dead.

Nebo Sunday afternoon, services being conducted by Rev. M. T. Dickson, Pastor at Mt. Nebo, and Rev. W. T. Haggard, pastor of the First Methodist Church of Columbia.

McKennon, Miss Frances Kinzer, who is in school at Pulaski; Henry Kinzer, of Oklahoma, and Albert Kinzer of Hohenwald. He was a member of the Mt. Nebo Methodist Episcopal church.
