Attended tiooo Funerals.
"One of the strangest characters
that our section of Pennsylvania ever
produced has just In-en taken to the
county almshouse."" said Mr. K. H.
Weeks, of Heading', Pa., at the Kiggs.
"Her name is Sophia Christian, and
j she commonly went by the name of
I Funeral Sophia," owing to her mania
'for attending- funorals. She never
missed one. and by reading' the news
papers kept informed on all in the
locality, so that she often attended
three or four in the same day. It is
estimated that within thirty years she
must have witnessed (ilKMi funerals.
Sophia"? long suit was to get up in i
the part of the church where the rela
tives of the deceased sat and she
mingled her tears with theirs as though
the departed were near and dear to
her. She would scale a high back
fence to get into a house of mourning
if denied access in front. It yvas a
cold day, too, yvhen she didn't get
into a carriage bound for the cemetery
and the nearer the hearse the better
she was pleased.
'After the ceremonies at the grave
her usual programme was to return
with the family of the deceased, and
if near the dinner hour she would be
a self-invited gnest. The official that
get her to the almshouse used strat
egy by tellin? her that a funeral was
on hand and that an elaborate dinner
was to follow."
