DIED; -- Mrs. Frank B. Cable at her home two miles west of here on Wednesday at noon, of inflammation of the bowels. The sad news of Mrs. Cable's sudden death came as a terrible shock to her scores of friends here, many of whom knew nothing of her illness until an hour before she died when the sad report was spread that she could not live. She had been ill but two days and on Wednesday morning she seemed much improved, but was taken worse again at ten o'clock, when a severe vomiting spell set in, during which a blood vessel burst causing internal hemorrhage for which nothing could be done and which was the cause of her sudden and unlooked for death. All that could be done for her was done, but it was of no avail and her spirit fled to those brighter realms where suffering is known no more.
She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Jones and was well known and esteemed by all our citizens. She and her husband had been married but four short months and their married life was a very happy one and the cruel blow falls hardest on the young husband so suddenly bereft of a loving and beloved helpmeet. She leaves a husband, father, mother, three brothers, three sisters and many other relatives and scores of friends who sincerely mourn her loss, and her sudden death has cast a gloom over the whole community for she was well known and highly esteemed by all who knew her. Her remains were laid to rest on Friday afternoon. We join her scores of friends in extending our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved ones she left behind, and may He who tempers the wind to the short lamb bring consolation to their sorrowing hearts in this their hour of darkest grief.

All that was earthly of Mrs. Ruby Cable was tenderly laid away in the Eden cemetery Friday afternoon. The crowd at the church and which followed the remains to their last resting place was one of the largest ever gathered together in Hudson, and was an indication of the respect and esteem in which the deceased was held by the entire community. The demonstrations of sorrow and grief shows by those who mourn for her so sincerely, was very pathetic to behold, and shows how hard it is to part with a loved one even though the world has been schooling itself for centuries to meet the inevitable fate which misses no one.
Some of those from outside points who were present at the obsequies were Geo. D. Jones, of Chicago, a brother of the deceased, Mr. and Mrs. Elwood Cable, of Chamberlain, Mr. and Mrs. Will Cable of Perkins, and Mr. and Mrs. Marion Cable, of Garretson, and many others whose names we did not learn. Ray Jones who has been residing in Colorado for some months past found it impossible to arrive here in time, the prevailing bad weather last week throughout the west delaying the trains so that he was unable to get farther than Sioux City until Saturday morning.
