M a l'l.K Movnt, June 2. As we at
tempt to chronicle the death of Mrs.
Martha Lucas, a feeling of sorrow
touches our heart deeply for the be
reaved family, who labored so patiently
for weeks, administering to her wants
and endeavoring to alleviate her suffer
ings and restore her to health again.
But the dread disease, consumption,
delied all her methods of treatment,
and on last Friday night, June 2", 1SH7,
death came and claimed her for its own.
She was in the tth vear of her age, and
for a number of years had been an earn
est member of the M. 10. Church. In
her family life, she was a kind and lov
ing mother, and to the outside world a
true friend and christian woman. Let
us strive to live right in this world ami
