L. Roney's Sunday and told of the serious Illness of Doctor Bowen, of that city, last summer. The doctor, who is a former Irvingtonian, suffered from infection which caused his legs and arms, particularly his fingers, to swell to twice their normal size. Mrs. Bowen, on the day the doctor was to go home from the hospital, drove to the hospital with the back seat of the car filled with pillows for life comfort, but on entering the car the doctor calmly ensconced himself behind the wheel and did the driving himself, regardless of his wife's protests. Old friends here who heard this story smiled and agreed that the doctor hasn't changed a bit with age. As a young man Doctor Bowau lived on the farm now owned and occupied by Mrs. Edna Harr. He was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Peter Bowen, and he married the former Mae King, aunt of David King here.
