    Had Not Been in Good Health for Two Years and Passed Away at the Age of 71.

    Corvallis, July 14—Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Wagy died at her home in Corvallis Friday, July 8, after a protracted illness of two years.  Mrs. Wagy was born December 8, 1839 and was married September 6, 1860 to Mr. Wagy, with whom she would have celebrated the golden wedding anniversary had she been spared until September, and who lives to mourn her loss.  To this union were born ten children, seven of whom are still living.  Those present at the funeral were Mrs. A. N. Whitsitt, Miss Debora Wagy and Miss Mabel Wagy of Corvallis; Mrs. J. W. Ramsey of Sandpoint, Idaho; Mrs. J. W. Leming of Fort Benton; and W. S. Wagy of Hamilton. Mrs. J. S. McBay of Fort Scott, Kansas, was unable to attend.

    The deceased was a woman of strong Christian character, who had led a life of unselfishness, always thinking of comfort and welfare of others before that of herself.  She will be greatly missed by her many friends as well as by her family. The bereaved ones have the love and sympathy of the entire community.
