Owensboro Messenger;
After a lingering illness of nearly five weeks' duration Miss Mamie Pointer, daughter of Mrs. Sallie Pointer, died Sunday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock.
She was an unusually bright and attractive girl, just entering her teens, and was the idol of a fond mother's loving heart. Her disease was typhoid fever, which she contracted in Russellville, though it did not develop itself until she was brought home a week after she was taken sick. She was a member of the first Baptist church, and was zealous in all work pertaining to the advancement of the church and the cause it advocates. The remains were taken to Russellville yesterday for interment.
