Abagail Ballinger
Mrs. Abagail Ballinger, aged 63 years, a well known resident of Franklin Township, died very suddenly about seven o'clock last Sunday evening at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank Coate, North Main street, with whom she was visiting. Her death was due to apoplexy. Deceased was in apparently good health when the sudden summons came, she was sitting on the porch at the Coate's home talking to her daughter, when her little grandson Cecil Coate, started into the street after a dog. Fearing the tot would be injured by a passing vehicle, she started after him. She caught the lad and carried him back to the house, but as she went to sit down she fell from the chair unconscious. Her daughter's screams attracted neighbors and Dr. Wintermute was hastily summoned, but the aged lady expired without regaining consciousness, a few minutes after the physician reached her side. Mrs. Ballinger was the widow of the late E. J. Ballinger, of Franklin Township, and was born and raised in this county, She was the mother of three children, Mrs. Frank Coate, of this city; J. H. and George Ballinger, of Franklin Township.

Mrs. Edward Bevington
Mrs. Edward Bevington, aged 32 years, of Chicago, Ill., died very suddenly at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Knight, at Rockford, Sunday morning. She was a sufferer from kidney trouble but was seemingly in good health Saturday evening. She had accompanied her mother down the street in that village during the evening and did not complain upon retiring for the night. Early Sunday morning Mrs. Knight heard her arise very hurriedly and upon inquiry she complained of a severe pain in her head. A moment later she fell to the floor in a stupor. A physician was summoned and she rallied, regaining conscious only long enough to tell that the pain was in her throat then she expired. Her husband, who was at Chicago, was immediately apprised of her condition, but did not reach Rockford until Sunday evening. Funeral services were held at the Knight residence at Rockford Tuesday afternoon and burial at the cemetery in that village.
