"The days of our years are three
score years and ten ; if by reason
of strength they be fourscore years,
yet is their strength, labor and
sorrow ; for it is soon cut off and
we fly away.''
There are very few whose earth
ly sojourn passes beyond this lim
it, but God in His good Providence
has lately called away one who had
been left with the earthly loved
ones for four-score and four years.
Mrs Landrnm, the oldeet of a large
family who, all savo one,have long
since passed into the great beyond,
died at the home of her daughter,
Mrs James Holland, on Tuesday
afternoon, October 8th.
She had always been one of the
useful,praotioal, faithful and kind
hearted souls whom everybody
honored and many loved, with a
lasting affection which only she
could inspire in human breasts.
This separation from her, the lov
ed ones viewed with au overwhelm
ing sorrow, but great comfort came
with the thought that she had
many to welcome her on the other
shore, for she had lived long
enough to have many more in hea
ven than on earth. Mother and
father, sisters and brothers, seven
children.and several grand chil
dren, to all whom she was so de
voted and of many of whom she of
ten spoke. Time had somewhat
assuaged the bitterness of her first
grief over these sad partings, but
she loved these dear ones none the
less. She has gone to them, and
while eartnly loved ones mourn
and lament her loss, those on the
other shore, wonder that they do
so, foi they know full well what
blessedness and joy are hers iu the
eternal city to which she has gone.
On Thursday morning the re
mains were carried to the Stev ?ns
Creek church and buried in the
family cemetery, beside her ion,
Jumps Laudrum, who, during the
Confederate war, died away from
friends, home and mother. They
are re-united now in the land of
perfect day. At this burying
ground are the graves of all of
this large and influential family,
at one time the most prominent in
that section of the county. Rev
P P Blalock was present and con
ducted the funeral services at the
grave, a simple service, only a
prayer and a hymn, as Mrs La nd
rum had often expressed a desire
that there should be no ostentation
jn this occasion.
Mrs Laudrum's latte'years were
as little years of "labor and sor
row" as the thoughtfulness of her
children could make them. Her
two daughters, Mrs Kate Mime
aud Mrs James Holland, six grand
children, and two great grand
children all lived near ber and
with her. They were attentive,
sympathetic aud affectionate all
through life growing more and
more so duTingher declining years
and she often expressed a thauk
fnlwheart for the kindness aud
love of her childreu.
Although it had been more than
twelve years since Mrs Landrum
had left her old home near Meet
ing Street, and she had visited tho
scenes cf ber childhood but few
times since, around her grave
gathered a large number of rela
tives and old friends, who seemed
to feel her loss and grieve over it,
as if it had been but yesterday
siuce she had been one among
them. So the lives and deeds of
the good and just can never be for
