G., Proprietor  One of Clinton's Noble Women That Will be Missed  Mrs. Mary Davis, who has lived on North Main street for the past 25_years, died last Saturday. She had been ailing for several years until finally the hand of death was laid upon her.  Mrs, Davis was born in Wales Oct. 31, 1827, and died June 22ud, 1907, and if she had lived until her next birthday she wouid have been 80 years old.  ■ The deceased came to the United States when a young woman and was married to David Davis in Ohio, where thex-e were several children born to theni. They moved to Pittsburg, Pa., some time later on, and about 30 year,- ago came to Clinton. Mr. Davis only lived here a short time, thus throwing the rare of looking after a family upon her shoulders, and she was equal to the emergency.  She leaves a family of f. children, Mrs. Daniel Mathias, Mrs. James Downie, and 4 sons—Evan, Thomas, Isaac and David—to mourn her taking away.  "Grandma' Davis, as she was familiarly known to* nearly every one in Clinton and suiTe>iinding country, was a woiului of real woi'th She was always ready and willing to aid the lowly and the satlering in many ways. No one ever wen{ to her in the hour of need and came away v.-ithout receiving some token of her kindheart-ednt'ss. A many a poor unfortunate child has received the tender stroke of her loving hands, and the world was better because she lived in it. May her slee[> neath the sod be as peaceful as was her nature. The deceased was a jChris tian woiudn and at all times a devout believer in the Saviour. The writer has personally known her for twenty-five years and had always found her the saH;e kind, gentle and lovable wonnin. No hungry or sick man ever appeared at her door but what siie gave him tood and shelter. Slie seemed to i live only to be good and help the lowly and suffering ones.  Time and sjiace forbids us giviiig her a more extended obituary, for we could go (m and on and fill many lines of space in praise of hei', whos'' taking away will be mourned by many mortals left here behind.  The funeral was conducted at the house, Rev. C. E. Fowler preaching the sermon, and a large crowd of her old and nev.- friends were there to pay her the last homage, Tuesday afternoon, and her remains were laid to rest in the beautiful Riverside cemetery, there to await the resurrection morn.  The momber.s of the family extend their heartfelt thanks to the many kind friends and neighbors who so willingly did all in their power to make their burdens lighter.  Tlie grand jury wiiich w.is ^■o::-vened Misnday morninij; of la^t weei; adjourned Wednesday aftevnoon. Only one indictment was returned, and that was against John Williams for robbing Smith & Curtis' hardware store at Clinton a few weeks ago. Ignoramuses were returned against Edward Jones and Fred Dudley, whom Williams tried to connect with the robbery.  There was no evidence against them except his own and the grand jury refused to ikdict them. They were discharged.  Mrs. Chai. Sanders and daughter visited at Newport, Simday.  The Fourth.  Thi' glorious Fourth will be celebrated in Clinton in lint» style, it \'.ill be inuler the aus;iiees of the Ma.iestie Bond. There will be a baloon asceusier., 'i.'uli game, tire wui Us, spc-aking and the day will be one round of fun, patriotism and a general good time.
