Mrs. Woods, who has been making her home with her daughter, Mrs. Thomas W. Dickinson, 1510 Greenwood avenue, went to Jackson, Mich., to visit some of her relatives.

Mrs. woods has been a widow for six years, her husband, Mr. C. C. J. Woods, having died in 1906. She has been a resident of Evanston ever since the Chicago fire, their property having been destroyed in that conflagration. She is survived by eight children, all of whom live in the vicinity of Chicago.
