Tie Faaeral of Mrs. E. H. Madisoa.
Tbe remains of Mrs. Madison, wife of
Ed. H. Madison, whose death occurred
at Topeka, and which was announced
last week in the Globe-Kepdblicas, ar
rived here Thursday night and was taken
charge of by undertaker Coons. The
funeral took place Saturday morning, tiie
exercises being held in the Presbyterian
church. Mrs. Madison having been a
member of that church. A large
number of the friends of tbe family :tnd
citizens had assembled at the choieh to
pay their respects to the memory of the
deceased. The exercises were conducted
by Bev. Wm. Westwood, pastor ,of the

from the church to the G. A. 11. ceme
tery, where the last sad rites were per
formed. A large number of people fol
lowed the remains to the cemetery.
Mr. Madison has the sympathy of the
citizens of this city and county in bis
affliction and bereavement. To his care,
alone, without the aid and comfort of a
kiad and loving wife aud mother, ate
left four children, and may God direct
him in the hour of trial and affliction.
Mrs. Madison was a woman highly es
' teetaed by every one who enjoyed her
acquaintance, aud Mr. Westwood, in his
sermon, spoke of her character as a wife,
mother and christian.
Miss Lillie Vuuce was born noar Mar
celeae, Adams county, 111., October 20,
186G. Her patents' names are William
and Emily Vauce. Both are living. She
was married to Ed. II. Madison at Wich
ita, Kansas, Nov. 5, 1S85, aud died at
Christ's hospital, Topeka, November 9,
The following Is Mr. Westwood's ser
mon: Rev. 14:13: "Blessed are the dead
which die in the Lord."
These are words which might well be
associated with the beatitudes which
cur blessed Lord spoke to His disciples.
In our present circumstances they
would make a fitting climax to the words
of Jesus, and we would be enabled to
apply them, as well as the beatitudes
which refer to this life, to the one whom
we pay our tribute to today; for the
blessedness of her death is the natural
-consequence of the blessedness of her
What arc some of the marks of the
blessed life on earth, as they are indica
ted by our Savior?
The first one is: "Blessed are the poor
!a spiiit" Matt. 5:3. This word -poor"
Is taken from a Greek word which
means lto v.alc cue's self Mile,'' and con
veys the idea of humility rather than

aad it finds its full amplification in the life
of our beloved dead. In her relation to the
world, humility was one of the great mor
al quality which adorned her character.
All the graces of a choice spirit are love
ly, but by universal consent humility
stands as an ornament of unsurpassing
beauty. It is one of heaven's rarest jew
els. Set deep within the human soul, it
shines at every turn through the trsms
paiency of an unaffected life. It does
more to make a person attractive than
all the diamonds that ever decked a
queen. Sublimely grand is the admo
nition which the apostle Peter, by in-
IC it...wv,n, &i,v.o ., ntn in; oa3 ILXClCi,
Hi 0:5. "Be ve clothed in humilirv "
Another mark of the blessed life on
earth is riven by Jesus in the words,
"Blessed are the pure in heart." In this
beatitude we have a word, 'heart,' which

vulgarity, but never a word passed those
lips which was in the least impioper.
I have mentioned these two murks of
the blessed fit's on eaith not that I
might argue from them that our sister's
death must have beeu a blessed one, for
no such argument is needed.

characterises which I have taken the lib

be spoken of) arc inferences which the

Four months ago Mrs. Lillie Vance
Madison appealed before tiie session of
this cluu eh aud leconlessed her faith in
Jesus Christ as her Saviour in the most
hearty and sinceie terms. Indeed, this
is the faith in which she has livo since
her childhood days.
Bom in a christian home in the state of
Illinois on the 20th day of October 1SC6
nurtured by christian patents, her loving,
gentle nature went out in devotion to her
Lord who redeemed her.
This faith reposed in Jesus has now
raised her above the sufferings of nature.
This faith illumined the closing scene
with the hopes and even with the very
light of approaching glory. The close
of such a life is the grandest of sunsets.
Nowhere does religion look so magnifi
cent as among such scenes; she stands
over the peaceful body aud raises her
hands to heaven exclaiming: "Blessed are
the dead which die in the Lord."
In this beatitude we find one term to
be explained. What is it to be "in the
Lord." While it is a remarkable ex
pression, yet it has many parallels in the
word of God. For instance, the Apostle
Paul speaks of "Christ in us the hope of
glory." Again, ho uses tbe expression,
"Nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ
liveth in me." Now, whether the ex
pression be thnt "Chiiet is iu us" or that
"we are in Christ," it is clear that they
are mdant to describe the intimate, spir
itual, indissoluble, eternal union, which
is formed by faith between the Saviour
and saved. This is a union more inti
mate than the connection between soul
and body, which a slight accident might
endanger, or a drop of poison dissolve.
This union which is formed between
Christ and the christian is such that
where one is the other is, and 'as one
feels tire other feels. Jesus speaks to
His Father and saj-s: "All Mine are
Thine." His Father is our. His right
eousness is ours. His victory is our.
His glory is ours! To be iu Christ there
fore, implies that we shall infallibly
enjoy all the blessings whicli he pur
chased with His blood. These are secur
ed to all who have saving fiith in Jesus,
by the great oath of God, and 'the bonds
of a covenant which is well ordered in
all things and sure. What more could
we have? What more could we wish for
than this? Well may the apostle say.
"Blessed arc the dead, etc." They are
blessed! They must be blessed! How
can it ha otherwise?
Of course, we must die; but then death
has lost its sting.
The dying is nothing if only we are
"in the Lord." The portal may seem
gloomy, but death is the gate of life to
those who know the blessedness of a
humble spiiit and a clean heart. If our
natures demand that we regard its pangs
and struggles, let us regard them merely
as the battle goes before victory.
But before the hill of victory is reach
ed, there may be much suffering, much
toil aud trouble. The steepest part is
commonly nearest the top, and many a
weary traveler, panting with shortened
steps and shorter breath, climbs upward
to find the last part of the journey the
hardest; but as he throws himself down
on the summit, O how he 'welcomes its
Be this our consolation today, that the,
toils and cares of tbe journey belong to
the road. They cease when we arrive atl
There ii ne more beautiful way of ai-
nounclng our sister's death than the old
fashioned phrase She is at rest!
Genuinely good in this life, and blessed
in -her death, she is joined to the multi
tude of whom tbe elder said : "These
are they which came out of great tribula
tion, and have washed their robes and
made them white in the blood of the
Lamb. Therefore are they before the
throne of God, and Berve Him day and
night in His temple : and he that sitteth
on the throne shall dwell among them.
They shall hunger no more, neither shall
the sun light on them, nor any h'eat.
For the lamb which is iu the midst of the
throne shall feed them, and shall lead
them unto living fountains of water: and
God shall wipe away all tears from their

told you, the you will givo a verdict
for tho defendant. But if you aro
liko me, and don't believe xvfiat
cither of t hem has said, then I don't
knovr what you will do."
