LUCAS LEDGER ITEMS:
It will be sad news to our readers to learn of the death of MRS. W.O. WOOLEVER, wife of a former Pastor of the Methodist Church at Lucas. The funeral services were held at the home of her parents at Knoxville on Monday last.
DR. GEO. CROSTON informs us that ENOS MUNDELL, who was so seriously injured by the accidental discharge of a shot gun a few weeks since, is now on the way to recovery. His mending will be slow, however, as he will naturally gain strength slowly.
MISS ZORA KNOTTS invited the ladies of the M.E. Society to surprise her mother this afternoon, it being her birthday anniversary. The guests presented MRS. KNOTTS with a nice silver baking dish, and MISS ZORA served an excellent lunch. A merry time was enjoyed by all.
NICK NELSON, a colored driver, in No. 4 mine at Cleveland, had his leg so badly mangled last Saturday that amputation was necessary. He was taking his trip to the cage and ran into a closed door, knocking him under the cars which passed over his limb. Dr. Geo. Croston was called and took off the injured member at the knee.
MRS. C.E. PENICK and two children will reside with her father, JACOB YENGEL, this winter, while her mother is absent in Oklahoma with her daughter, MRS. GRACE WRIGHT. MRS. YENGEL will spend the winter there in the hopes that her health will be improved by the change of climate.
