Miss Maggie Slavin died of consumption at her home on Monday, Sept. 25, and was buried oa Wednesday from the Catholic church at Grand Junction. This was very sad news to a great many here as Maegie had lived in Rippey nearly all her life and had a great many friends here who now mourn her death. She will be sadly missed in the home circle where for so many years she did the best she could to fill the dead mother's place. The family have the sympathy of all in their sad, sad bereavement.
