About 4 o'clock on Wednesday morning, the 17th inst., after a long illness, the wife of Joseph Hurst, supervisor of Lyman Township, quietly and peacefully passed away.
Death came so stealthily upon his patient victim that the anxious family would not have known of his nearness had not the loving husband been sitting at her side with her hand in his. Just before the dark curtain was lowered forever on the scenes of her life, she opened her eyes for a last look into her husband's face and with a whispered "good bye" the spirit was gone. Thus has a patient, trusting wife and mother gone, leaving behind a family to mourn.
Her age was 44 years and nearly 5 months. For 23 years and 1 day she has been the faithful wife of Joseph Hurst, and 22 years of that time they have lived in this county. On behalf of neighbors and friends, we extend to the afflicted family heartfelt sympathy in their sorrow.

Our Roberts correspondent writes us that on Saturday last, Mr. James Huxtable, a farmer and an old resident of Lyman, who resided about four miles north west of Roberts, was instantly killed. He and his son Samuel were out hunting ducks on what is known as the old slough in that township, and near the residence of Mr. H., in a boat, Mr. H. being seated in front of his son. While reaching for his gun and pulling it toward him by the muzzle, it was discharged, the ball passing through his body near the heart, casing instant death. This is another case of death by the careless handling of firearms. Mr. H. was a kind and obliging neighbor and a worthy citizen, and leaves a wife and six children to mourn his untimely and sudden death.

Another name has been added to the list of the victims of the Chatsworth horror by the death last Sunday evening at Piper City of Miss Eliza McDonald, of this village. Miss McDonald suffered from a broken arm, a severe nervous shock, and the exposure consequent upon several hours spent on the damp ground and in the rain. From the very first, fears were entertained that she could not recover. Kind friends and relatives were constantly at her bedside, but the most watchful care and tender nursing could not keep off the inevitable. She was one of the best known public school teachers of this vicinity. He face has been a familiar one at the county institutes form many years. The funeral services were held at the Congregational church and were conducted by Rev. Wm. Kettle.
