W. D. Munholland Dead

After an illness of only a few days Mr. W. D. Munholland died last Wednesday night at his home to Farmerville. His death came quite as a surprise to his friends here as a only a very few of them knew that he was sick until it was announced that he was dead. His remains were shipped to Monroe for interment which took place Thursday afternoon. The following committee from here accompanied his remains to Monroe and attended at his funeral: J. K. Atkinson, G. E. Murphy, H. Ludwig, Jr., P. W. Mayo, Arthur Johnson, Earnest Robinson, Willie Covington and Ed Roark and Ellis Powell of Marion.

Mr. Munholland was admitted to the bar when he was quite young and opened up an office here in Farmerville where he practiced for several years and then moved to Monroe, going from there to New Orleans where he practiced for several years. About eight years ago he returned to Farmerville where he remained until his death. He was a lawyer of rare abilities, and a writer of no small note and a courteous, polished gentleman. Peace to his ashes.

Lucile, infant daughter of T. A. and Beulah Crow, passed away, after a brief illness, Sabbath morning Jan. 14, at 6 o’clock, 1906. The little darling came to their home to brighten it, April 27, 1905, and was only permitted to stay with them, eight months, and seventeen days, then God took her. She has been taken from Mother and Father’s arms to await, and beckon them on to that Heavenly place. Dear Lucile was the sunshine of the home, for she was a bright little baby, for her age. Her Mama’s and Papa’s joy, Grandma’s and pa’s pet. We miss and mourn for you, dear baby Lucille, but not as those, who have no hope. The chair is vacant, the loved voice is stilled, but mother, and father, weep not, for the Lord is your help in time of trouble, and your little baby is safe in the arms of Jesus.

Her Grandma, A. C. Gregory.
