"Sept 20, 1895"

Died - Mr. M. J. Cummings of Ward Prairie, had the great misfortune to loose his estimable wife last Tuesday, who died after a few days illness.  The deceased was formerly Miss Nora Yates, a daughter of D. T. Yates, a well known and popular citizen of the prairie.  A few months ago, she received a painful injury by falling out of the wagon with which the team was running away and she never recovered from the effects of the fall.  She was comparatively a young lady and had many friends and relatives who deeply deplore her untimely death."
