Hillsboro, Tex., June 27.--At the residence three miles west of this city yesterday morning Alonzo L. BROOKS died. The deceased was the son of Mrs. C. N. BROOKS of this county and was well known by everyone. In the death of Mr. BROOKS Hill county has suffered an irreparable loss. His true manhood and sterling worth were appreciated by all and his untimely death, being but 28 years of age, has cast a gloom over all. But a short time ago he was married to Miss WHEATLEY, a most estimable lady of Ellis county and to-day his beloved wife and child have the sympathy of all in this the dark hour of their affliction.
