Miss Mary llurns Pancake was born September 23, 1848, and departed to be with Jesus September 1, 1915. She became a Christian early in life and united with the Presbyterian church of Itomney, W. Va., in 1866. The last three years of her life she was an invalid, and at times suffered much, but her faith never failed. She was an active worker in the church, and for very many years taught in the Sabbath school. Among the many beautiful characteristics of the life that ,4aflnrnpfl tbo iln/'trino n^A ??? ? v * w uwvvt 1UU Ul UUU UU1 Saviour" was her intense personal love for Christ; and, as a consequence, her love for souls, especially of the poor people for whose salvation she constantly longed. Such a soul could not help being liberal to the Master's cause and she was willing to sacrifice her pleasure that she might contribute to the spread of the gospel. The writer has known few Christians whose mind was so constantly occupied with the thought of the lost about her, or who rejoiced more on learning of their salvation. Her reverence for sacred things was very marked, and she deprecated any criticism of the preached gospel, especially in the presence of children. She was sincerity personified, of a tender conscience and a gentleness that made all else painful to her. Of her it may be said: "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." Two brothers ^nd one sister survive her, viz., Mr. John S. Pancake, of Staunton, Va., and Mr. Joseph S. Pancake and Miss Sydney M. Pancake, both of Romney, W. Va. "Thanks be to God which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." "Well done, good and faithful servant; enter thou into ihe joy of thy Lord." Pastor. JAMES A. GRIGG.

Grigg the church and board of deacons have lost one of their oldest, most respected and beloved members. Mr. Grigg was retiring and unostentatious in manner, true and correct in all the obligations of life. He was zealous and faithful in the service of his Master. In his church, the question with him was not how little, but how much he could do. In his death we feel that each of us has lost a co-worker and personal friend, who will be much missed from our number. Resolved, That these resolutions will be spread upon the minutes of the board of deacons and a copy of them be sent'to his family, and that they be published in the daily newspapers. MARGARET ESTILL.
