The remains of Mrs. L.M. RIDDICK, postmistress of Gatesville, N.C., who died of a surgical shock in a Columbus (Ohio) hospital, arrived in Suffolk last night and were today shipped to Gatesville via Gates station for burial. Mrs. RIDDICK had something like a tumor and went to Columbus for attention. The operation killed her. The deceased was the widow of the late Patrick RIDDICK, former sheriff of Gates county, and was a daughter of the late Mills EURE. She was a sister of Mrs. William Jesse SAVAGE, Wiggins Cross Roads, N.C. and of Mrs. PARKER, Plymouth, NC. Several children survive her.
