Tho large concourse of friends which
assembled on Saturday morning at the
funeral of the late Mrs. L. E. Van
Hoesen, was a significant tribute to the
memory of the deceased. At 10 o'clock
the remains were taken to the church
next to the parsonage, where services
were conducted by Rev. J. G. Eckman,
D. D presiding elder of the Wyoming
district. During the course of this ser
mon he voiced a tribute to the life of
the deceased that was as eloquent as
it was truthful and deserved. He spoke
of the devoutness and strict regular
ity with which she always attended to
her church duties, and the care and
devotion she always exhibited toward
her family and home. She lived as God
ordained that we should live which
fact should be a source of sustaining
consolation to the afflicted family and
there is every reason to hope that she
will be crowned with that crown of
everlasting glory, which the Saviour
promises to all who love according to
His teachings. Brief addresses were
made by Revs. Day, Smythe, Jones and
Hard. After the services the remains
were viewed by the many friends as
sembled to pay the last token of re
spect to the deceased. The floral offer
ings were many and beautiful, among
them being the "Gates Ajar," a tribute
from tho Ladles' Aid society. Inter

The train had been going at the rate
of forty miles an hour. The sudden
application of the air-brakes brought
it quickly to a stop. There was a con

heard. Mr. Hlggintop listened a mo

The wildest consternation reigned.
Passengers were crouchlnjr down be

through a window and burled Itself in
the woodwork of the car.
