Grandma BAIN, aged 71 years, who made her home with her daughter, Mrs. John McMINN of this place, died of heart failure, in a wagon on the road from Wyandotte to Seneca [Missouri], last Saturday afternoon.  She was in as good health as usual, and was talking about the fine corn by the roadside, when she suddenly dropped over in the wagon and expired without uttering a word. Her remains were brought to this place for burial, and interment was made in the city cemetery about noon Sunday.   Rev. JONES conducted a short service at the cemetery. The deceased was the mother of nine living children, six being present at her funeral, including Mrs. McMINN, Mrs. Tom GIBSON, and Sam BAIN, of this place, two sons of Republic, Mo., and a daughter of Binger, Okla. The News extends sympathies.
