About a year ago Miss Hearon was married to Mr. William J. Smith of Knoxville. Tenn. Mrs. Smith was well known in Lebanon, her father having been pastor of the Methodist church here for four years, during which time she made many friends. She had been a frequent visitor to her friends here of late, and seemed in the best of health, until late Tuesday when along with the other members of the family enjoying themselves on the front veranda of their home she suddenly died from heart failure. Mrs. Smith was much loved by all who knew her, and her family has the deepest sympathy of her many friends here. The funeral services were conducted at the parsonage, and the body laid to rest in the Smithfield cemetery.

He also visited France and Germany, where he toured the country and witnessed the Passion Play at Obernmergen. He also visited Switzerland, where admired the beautiful scenery of that country. On his return voyage to this country met about fifty priests and delegates to the Euchariatic Congress, which is to be held at Montreal. Father Olivier's many friends in Tazewell will be glad to learn of his pleasant voyage and safe home-coming.
