Died of Cancer
Mr. Smith Hayes, a well known and much respected citizen, died at his home one mile east of the city Monday afternoon, after a long and painful illness, of cancer of the face. The malignant growth made its appearance about five years ago and had eaten away one side of his face. While he had been a constant sufferer he was only confined to his bed a few weeks. Mr. Hayes was about eighty years old and leaves several children. The funeral was preached at his late residence Tuesday afternoon by Elder H. D. Smith and the interment took place in Hopewell.
