TARKINGTON--- Mrs. Juliette Maxwell Tarkington, wife of Col. William L. Tarkington, died at her home in this county this morning shortly after twelve o'clock, after a protracted illness.  The funeral will be held at the residence tomorrow at half past three o'clock.  The deceased was in her 72d year, and was a native of Marion county.  She leaves five grown children, besides her husband to morn her loss.  The children are Messrs. George and Joseph Tarkington, Mrs. L.G. Edlen, of this county, Mrs. J.S. Shuttleworth, of Louisville, and Mrs. George McMillan, of Ackworth, Ga.  She was a woman who won the love of all--kind, motherly, sympathetic, tender hearted and hospitable.  Her life was a shining example to all.  After a long life spent in usefulness, and after a married life marked by loving companionship, she has gone beyond the river to await the arrival of the aged husband, with whom every heart sympathizes, and the children whom she sought to "teach the way"


Juliette Maxwell was the daughter of Joseph & Eunice Stiles Maxwell.
