Death of Mrs. J. A. Hughes.
Harmony Church, Sept. 23.?On
ThursUuy afternoon, the soul of Mrs.
Sallie Hughes left the body to be with
the redeemed. Mrs. Hughes was the
wife of Mr. J. A. Hughes. She had
lived in this community about 23
years ami throughout that period was
a faithful aim influential member of
Harmony, the Methodist Protestant
Church. She leaves her husband, nine
children, four hoys and live girls, to
gether with relatives and a host of
friends to mourn her death.
Of her suffering we do like to speak.
For several months she lingered at
death's door. Vet. amid this pain and
afiiction she was perfectly reconciled
i.i hor Father's will . in it all she was
cheerful and her patience was beauti
ful unsurpassed. ISven while her
soul was taking Its departure from
a world of sorrow to a world of bliss,
there shone on her face a beautiful
We love to thing of her character.
It was sweet ami noble. To know her
was to love her. There never lived
a more devoted w.'e. a more sympa
thetic mother, nor a more devout
Christian. Let it he said of her in
the words of Holmes:
?One more the strife is ended
The .solemn issue tried
The Lord of Host, his mighty arm
lias helped our Israels' side;
Cray stone and grassy hillock
Tell where our martyr died.
Hut peaceful smiles the harvest
Ami stainless Mows the title".
Her body was laid to rest in the
Bethel cemetery, there to await the
Kesil rest ton morn. Uev. Foster
Sphouves conducted the services.
His sermon was able and consoling.
A large crowd, of relatives and friends,
paid their last tribute and respect and
love to her.
