     Mrs. Mary Cook, widow of Charles H. Cook, died at her late home, rear 24 Prospect street, this morning at 1:15, following an illness of several weeks.
She was the mother of Charles H. and John A. Cook, proprieters of Cook Bros. cigar store, Main street.
  The deceased was born in County Leitrim, Ireland, 78 years ago, the daughter of the late Andrew and Margaret Donahoe. About 58 years ago she came to this country and going to Milford, Mass, remained as a resident of that town for 42 years. About 16 years ago she came to this city and since lived here.
  The death of Mrs. Cook will not alone be a blow to the members of the family, but also to a wide circle of friends both in this city and Milford. Her devotion to the members of her immediate household and the many kind and charitable deeds she performed for others earned a respect and esteem that is lasting.
  Besides her sons, Charles H. and John A., she is survived by three daughters, Mrs. James Nolan of Milford, Miss Margaret Cook of this city and Mrs. James Drummond of Leominster, Mass.; 14 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
  The funeral will be held from her late home Thursday morning at 8:30. A high mass of requiem will be sung at St. Charles church at 9. Interment in St. Charles's cemetery.
