Miss Mary Bennett,. 21 years of age, died Wednesday night at 10 o'clock, after an illness of more than six months of tuberculosis. Miss Bennett never was healthy and strong like other girls and life was one long siege of suffering and pain and her condition was a most pitiable one. She always longed to get out and be with other young people, but her weakened condition prevented her from enjoying any of the pleasures of life. She was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Bennett and has three brothers, Miller, George and Joe The funeral was held this morning at 10:30, at the M. E. church, in charge of Rev. Bair and undertaker Harrell. Interrment at the Lucas cemetery, east of town. The new M. E. church, being constructed at Bloomington, will be when completed, one of the most up to date religious edifices in Southern Indiana. There will be rooms for the ministers private study, Sunday school class rooms, places to give church festivals, cooking rooms, etc, and all will be electrically connected so that all is needed will be to press the button. A novel feature, that only a few of the large churches in the great cities have, will be a system of instruments placed on the back of seats in a part of the house for the benefit of people who are hard of hearing, by which they may place a tiny instrument to the ear and hear every word the preacher says. Such an arrangement would be greatly appreciated, as about one person in every ten, is hard of hearing.
