Died, at her home three miles northeast of Stilwell, August 10, of heart failure, Mrs. Augusta, wife of Mr. C. G. Brown, aged sixty-three years. The sudden and unexpected death of Mrs. Brown cast a gloom over the community. She had been somewhat unwell for several days, but her husband and children did not consider her end so near. During the day of her death she had attended to her work about the house. About 5 p. m. she commenced preparing supper for herself and husband, the only persons at the home at the time. She had gone to the kitchen door to empty a pan of water and fell near the door. Mr. Brown, who was cutting weeds near, saw her lying on the ground shortly after she had fallen and ran to her assistance, but found her dead. He placed her lifeless body inside the house and ran to the family of Mr. McKinley with the sad news. Mrs. McKinley and others of the neighbors soon gathered at the house. Charlie Brown, her son, and their family in Stilwell, and Dr. M. F. Sloan were summoned. The doctor pronounced her death a case of heart failure. Deceased was a member of the Lutheran church in good standing [sic] The remains were laid to rest in the Aubry cemetery on the 12th inst. Rev. J. Brown of Hillsdale conducting the funeral exercises. The aged husband and children have the sympathy of the writer and the entire community in their sad bereavement.
