	Death of Mrs. Laura Bishop Bush.  Mrs. Laura Bush, wife of Walter
Bush, formerly Laura Bishop, died Saturday morning at the Hospital of the
Deaconesses in St. Louis, as the result of an operation for appendicitis.
For a few days she seemed to be improving, and it was thought that she had
passed the critical stage, but she soon collapsed into death.  She was the
daughter of John R. and Sophronia Bishop, well known citizens in Mexico
twenty years ago, and she grew to womanhood here where she was married.
Later she moved to St. Louis, with her husband, who had been long employed
in the offices  of the Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain Railroads.  She
leaves this husband and two children, L. R. Bush, a well known young and
successful businessman, and Miss Ruby Bush, a daughter in the home.
	Mrs. Bush was in many ways a woman of the unusual.  Her industry was
pronounced, her attachments intense and lasting, her friendships sincere and
her religious proclivities were zealous and effective.  Her growth and
development were commensurate with her years, and her attainments were all
that her opportunities could yield.  With the burdens of home-keeping and
family rearing on her shoulders, and with the care of her parents in their
declining years and invalidism, she yet went out into the world for the
world's good and fought some of the battles for its uplifting.  She had that
sort of ambition that was for bettering and that sort of ability which
accomplished.  Besides some old friends here in Mexico, she leaves a host in
St. Louis where both in and out of church circles she was widely known and
loved.  JNB
