Death of a Young Teacher

Miss Katie Walton, of Salisbury, one of the music teachers of Mt. Amoena Seminary at Mt. Pleasant, died Tuesday night about 12 o’cock. The young lady returned from her vacation quite poorly but hoped that nothing serious would follow. In a day or so she took seriously ill and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Walton, were sent for. Her pastor, Rev. C. B. King, was also present through the last several days of her illness.

Miss Walton was a lady of lovely character, with a sunny disposition and manners that unconsciously attracted those who met her. She was popular with the pupils and her death is a terrible blow to the associates, so much attached to her.

All that fond friends and skilled physicians could do, was done cheerfully.

Miss Walton is a cousin of Mrs. Mayor Crowell, of Concord.

Mr. And Mrs. Walton have, in this sad bereavement, the warmest sympathy of all who knew Miss Walton in the county.
