McKeene The sad intelligence
has reached us of the death of
Addie McKeene. She died at
Pittsfield, Mass., March 2Sth,
1SSS, of scarlet fever.
Addie was nearly fourteen years
old at the time of her death and
her life was full of promise. Her
mother had gone to New York to
purchase goods for Mr. Browning
ol Kirksville, when she was called
home by a telegram announcing
the sudden illness of her daughter.
She reached her bed side just a
short time before her young spirit
winged its flight to the land of
spiritf. Mrs. McKeene and her
children had made their arrange
ments to come to Kirksville this
spring; but she has had sorrow
upon sorrow and her plans have
met with unexpected change. Ad
die was her chief joy and comfort
so far as human friends are con
cerned. She was a bright intelligent girl
and had recently manifested much
interest in religious matters. The
last word she sent to Kirksville
was to express her interest in the
"Children's Heathen Mission
Work" and she accompanied her
letter with an offering tor that
She is gone. There is one more
tie to bind us to the unseen. 'They
are gathering homeward, one by
one." The bereaved mother found
many sympathizing friends in Pitts
field and she has hosts of friends
here. May the Heavenly Father
comfort her in this deep affliction.
