startled, on Monday morning list, by the an
nouncement ol the snddeu death ol airs, llat
tlo IStatty Jewctt, wife ol W. T. Jewett, and
mother ol Judge Jcwett. She had been ail
ing but a week when, at eight o'clock Sab
bath evening, thero appeared to be a general
suspension ol her v Ital force, with the njnip.
toms ol a congestiv e chill, and In a few mo
ments her spirit had taken its everlasting
flight The funeral sermon was preached by
Itev. J. P. Harden, on aionday, at tho Pres
byterian church, of which she was a member,
and in the evoning her remains were followed
by many friends to their silent home ou the
hill. Jlrs. Jcwett was born in New Lisbon,
Ohio, in 1S27; was married to W. T. Jcwett
in Stubenville, Tho family moved to Kansas
and to this valley nearly seven years ago, be
ing among Its very earliest settlers. Her
youngest child is nine years old, her eldest is
Judge Jcwett. Tho family lived in our city
lor some time, and airs. Jcwett, by her amia
bility and gentle life, won the love and rc
spoct ol all with whom sho became accquvint
ancc. Sho was a wile and mother, true, pure
and perlect In all that goes to make up these
two most sacred characters. To the stricken
husband and mourning children ne extend
our sympathy, lor each and all seem broken
up. A mother's loss cannot bo estimated nor
can any one take her place.
