James Lowry Dead.


  The people of this community were shocked Tuesday to learn of the death of James Lowry, east of Blue Mound.  He died early Tuesday morning after a brief illness, of pneumonia.  The funeral was held at the Methodist church at 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon, and interment was made at Pleasant View cemetery.  The burial services were conducted by the Masonic lodge, of which Mr. Lowry was a member.

  Mr. Lowry has lived in this county for many years, and gained the highest esteem of all those fortunate enough to know him, the same as he has done in every other community in which he lived throughout his useful life.  Many were the expressions of regret Tuesday when the sad intelligence reached us.  It is true we all have our faults and shortcomings but James Lowry’s faults were few and his virtues were many.  His memory will still live among us though he be dead, for the good that he has done and for the cheer he has spread among his fellowmen.  The bereaved relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
