Mrs. J.M. Bynum, to Booneville. She received her college education at
the I.I.&C. at Columbus, and afterward became a member of the faculty of that
institution. She was devoting her life to educational work, for which she was
so admirably adapted. She was an untiring, enthusiastic worker, and possessed
the talents and elements that made her efforts meet with pronounced, notable
success. Sociably, hers was a kindly, congenial spirit; her circle of friends
was wide and those who knew her loved her, and rendered to her the courteous
respect due a lady of refinement and gentleness of heart. On account of ill
health she retired from her college work; then, thinking the trip would be
beneficial, she accepted from the government a position as teacher in the
Philippine Islands. Her health continuing to fail, she soon returned to this
country and stopped for a time at Los Angeles, California, where she was
joined by her mother, and later they came to South McAlister.

SAM P. ALLEN DEAD.
The readers of The Corinthian will be deeply pained and shocked to learn of the
death of Hon. Sam P. Allen, which occurred at his home in Booneville last night.
He was stricken with apoplexy at 4 o’clock Tuesday afternoon and died at 9
o’clock that night. He was 49 years of age and leaves a wife and two children.
The funeral services, we understand, took place this afternoon at 3 o’clock.
Mr. Allen was a prominent man in North Mississippi, and was held in loving
esteem by all who knew him. He ranked among the leaders of the bar, and had
large and powerful influence in social and political affairs. His influence and
his efforts always tended toward the higher order of things, for the betterment
of society and his fellowman. He was a moral and an honest man-and when that can
be truly said of a man, volumes of laudations in behalf of his character would
add no more.
He was a congenial and lovable character, and his personality was felt and
appreciated at home and wherever he went. He was a brother of Hon. John M. Allen
and possessed those inimitable traits of humor and convivality that are so well
known and so thoroughly enjoyed by a very wide circle of friends. It is with the
sincerest sorrow that we chronicle his death. He was a friend highly prized; he
was in loving touch of friendship with so many that his demise will be learned
with a feeling of sadness that comes with the loss of one bound by sacred or
closer ties of kinship. May his soul rest in peace.
