Judge A.G. Underwood

Died on Sunday the 31st ult. at Helena, Ark., Judge A.G. Underwood of that city.
He had been suffering excruciating pain for years with rheumatism and has at last fallen under the destroying hand. He filled the honorable and responsible position of Probate Judge for this county. He retained his judgement until the last moments and a solemn and pathetic scene was witnessed a few minutes before his departure. He called his companion for so many years and bade her farewell, also his only daughter and surrounding friends and then began to repeat the Lord's Prayer, but his spirit took flight before he concluded the prayer.
