      Eagle.--Mrs. Mary Kavanaugh Eagle, wife of Ex-Gov. James P. Eagle, of Little Rock, Ark., died on last Sunday morning, February 15. Mrs. Eagle was born and reard in Madison county, being the oldest daughter of William Kavanaugh Oldham. Mrs. Eagle has attained more prominence, possibly than any of Madison's fair daughters. She was considered the moving spirit that elevated her husband to the Governor's chair in her adopted State and finally to the more distinguished position as president of the Southern Baptist Convention. Mrs. Eagle was one of the lady Commissioners of the World's Fair at Chicago, and editor of the proceedings of the Woman's Congress. Here Mrs. Eagle met and becam eintimate with the best informed ladies from every State in the Union and from every civilized country in the world. The family and friends of Mrs. Eagle date her decline in health from the performance of the ardous duties as editor of this book. Mrs. Eagle was considered by her many admirers as one of the brightest and best informed women of our country, and her untimely death will be mourned by possibly as many people as any one in our land. As wife high type of womanhood and christian character she was unexcelled by any one. She leaves two sisters Mrs. W. H. Miller and Mrs. John Doty of this place and three brothers W. K. Oldham, of Lonoke and Kie Oldham, of Little Rock, Ark., and Dr. Ira Brown Oldham, of Kirksville, this county, to mourn her loss. The hearts of many friends and relatives of Mrs. Eagle in Madison county are moved with sympathy for Gov. Eagle in his great bereavement.
