The death of John Nakedhead, a Cherokee of affluence, and who was well known in this community and in the county, which occured last Saturday afternoon about 4 o'clock at his home near the city, was quite a surprise as well a great shock to many friends.

Deceased had seemed in splendid health and none would have ever thought that death was so near, who had seen him scarcely more than a week before when he was in the city and looked to be perfectly well. Yet he was a victim of tuberculosis, which brought the precipate end at the age of 39, and widowed the mother and left three children fatherless ere any had realized that so heavy a sorrow lurked and hovered over the doomed home to decend with such curel mercilessness upon it.

The body of the deceased was laid to rest in Salem cemetery Sunday at 2 o'clock p.m., funeral services being conducted by the Reverends FEATHERS and George LIVERS, Cherokee ministers.

Deep sympathy from this and the community in which they reside goes out to the grief stricken family.
