After weeks of suffering, Mrs. Margaret Kirkpatrick, wife of the late William Kirkpatrick, died at her home at Owensville at five o'clock this morning.  For several days she had been in a serious condition and the end was not unexpected, although it was a great shock to the many friends and relatives.

  Mrs. Kirkpatrick was 78 years of age and had long been a resident of Montgomery Township.  She leaves three children, Miss Hattie Kirkpatrick and Edward Kirkpatrick of Owensville, and Abraham Kirkpatrick of South Bend, Indiana.  One brother, Thomas Massey of Owensville, also survives.

  The funeral will be held at the residence Tuesday afternoon at two o' clock and the interment will be in the cemetery near Owensville.

  Mrs. Julia Massey, a sister-in-law of the deceased, and Mrs. C. M. Lawrence, a niece, of this city, will leave for Owensville tonight to attend the funeral.
