home of his mother Mrs Helleri i
Wood on SouthiMain street at the I
age of 31 years Consumption wati i
finally the cause of his death
During the past five months Mri
Wood has had to stay within doors
and a greater part of the time he
was confined to his bed All that
the family friends and physicians
could do for him was in vain and he
graduallyjgrew weaker and weaker
till the end came
It is not of the life of Henry that
we would speak but of his hopeful
death He had known for some
time that he could never recover and
had held frequent conversation with
DrA P Lyon of the Methodist t
church in regard to his souls sal
vation Dr Lyon was to see him
mo
two weeks ago and as he read to
him from the Holy Word the many
promises to those who believe the
young man exclaimed Can such a
sinful man as I have been be saved
Other passages were quoted1lSS ring
him that it was possible for all to be
saved and he made a complete sur
render to Christ After that he de
lighted in talking to his mother and
friends about his blessed hope
Just beforahe end came he had
Dr Lyon called to his bedside Dr
Lyon says he has seen a great many
people die and Mr Woods death
was one of the most beautiful he has
ever witnessed Just before passing
away he summoned his mother
sister and brothers to his bedside
and bade them farewell He de
plored the wicked life he had lived
but said that God had forgiven him
and then said with his last breath
Mother watch me as I pass into
the Gates Then all was over
The funeral services were con
ducted by Dr Lyon at the home of
his mother yesterday afternoon at 3
oclock The burial was in Hope
well Cemetery
