Is a Crack Shot OIHTUAItV OF -SIRS MARGARET UIIiLIS Margaret Hillis was born March 6, 1S34 and died June 23. 1911. She crossed the plains with her first hus band Solomon Manwaring and four children two of whom died on the way. Win. Manwaring died and was burled at Rock Point. Sho was married to Wm. Peck Hillis in July 1SG5. From this union there were five children all of whom survive her. William Hillis, John HIUIs, Mrs. Mary Moore, Mrs. Maggie Taylor and Mrs. Elizabeth Slmmer vlllo; also fourteen grand children to mour her loss. Mrs. HIUIs knew something of the trials and hardships of pioneer life on tho Pacific Const and yet lived to pass her seventy-seventh year. Four weeks before her funeral she attend ed tho service at the Wlmer church when tho writer was pleased to minis ter to her the Wrord of Life. She lways extended a welcome with a ready heart and band and many n time it has been my privilege to sit with her and her family at tho table and partake of her hospitality. The sturdy virtues of the early pioneer contributed to a long and useful career in spite of tho contest with primitive conditions before which many a weaker nature gave way. She leaves behind a family whose oneness is evident although separated by family ties of their own No better evidence of a well ordered home can bo found than the fact that her five grown children all having families of their own are so near to each other that all were present at tho funeral without having to over come time and distance. ' Tho writer by request of the fam ily performed the last kind office for the dead on Sunday, June 25, 1911. Sho was buried by tho side of her husband, Wm. P. HIUIs In tho Wood vllle cemetery. A largo concourse of sympathizing friends from Evans Creek and Woodvllle attended the funeral. BwBwBwB v.

Revenue officers whoso hats were shot off by Maude Black, a comely, dark haired girl, when they went prowling Into the Klnmtchl mountains seeking "moonshiners" are not going to get off so easy next time, according to her declaration In court. She Is held hero ns a witness in a rase ngalnst John Thompson and "Jim" Cantrell, captured in a raid near Eutaula. The girl Is Thompson's sweetheart, and, angered by his arrest, she threatens to take better aim hereafter. She declared she was an expert rifle and revolver shot, and in answer to a query as to her mnrkmanship said calmly: "Oh, 1 could shoot that offi cer's star off his breast at one hun dred yards without any trouble. Once I shot two officers' hats off when they came nosing around too near. I could have killed them, but didn't want to do that. I stood guard, you know, while John and "Jim" worked the still." Maude Black Is barely out of her teens, but has earned the title of "Queen of the Moonshiners." Her hair Is of the darkest hue and she wears It In two long braids over her shoulders. Her eyes are dark and presented an unfathomable depth when sho appeared on the witness stand and frankly told the story of her llfo among the moonshiners.
