Friends in Hazlehurst have re
ceived information of the death of
Mrs. E. E. Inslee in Louisiana. She
was connected with a large family of
prominent and pious people near Ba
ton Rouge. Her maiden name was
Eugenia Sherburne. She was aunt
of Mrs. G. W. Suttell, mother of
Mrs. Motte Martin, missionary to Af
Mrs. Inslee read missionary stories
to the little girl who was destined
to become the efficient worker with
her enterprising husband on the banks
of the Congo.
At the age of six Eugenia Sher
burne was exceedingly ill. Friends
sent to the church for the minister
to coine and pray for the child. No
minister was there. The carpenter
who was building the church laid
down his hammer and saw and re
sponded to the call. He could pray
as well as work. The life of the
child was spared, and she lived more
than three-score years after that. The
carpenter became a minister and a
missionary to China some years be
fore the War Between the States. He
returned to Louisiana. Dr. H. F. Wil
liams says:
In Four Continents : " "The pioneer
of our distinctly Foreign Missionary
work was Rev. E. B. Inslee. Prior
to the Civil War Mr. Inslee, a mem
ber of the Mississippi Presbytery, had
for ten years been an efficient mis
sionary at Ningpo, China. During
the time of the war lie supported
himself on the field. At the close of
the war he returned home and in
1S66 earnestly solicited our Southern
Presbyterian Church to send him to
China to lay the foundation of a new
mission. The request was not unheed
ed, and Mr. Inslee and his family
were sent to China in June, 1867.
Thus began our first Foreign Mission
ary work outside of America."
The subject of this sketch was the
wife of the first Foreign Missionary
of the Southern Presbyterian Church.
Their work was at Hangchow. The
reports of the Hangchow work in the
beginning days give an insight into
the trials and sorrows of our pioneer
missionaries. Three children -were
born to them while in China; twins
on a canal boat, far away from the
ordinary comforts of civilized life.
In the fall of 1870 Mr. Inslee re
turned to the United States with his
family. In the following spring, 1871,
he died in New Orleans. Ardent and
appreciative friends of the pioneer
missionary raised a handsome fund
to take care of his family. A part
of the "Inslee Fund" was set apart
for the purchase of a home.
Miss Eugenia Sherburne and Miss
Lorie Groome had been schoolmates
and devoted friends In Baton Roug^'
The symptoms of kidney and bladder
troubles are often very distressing and
leave the system in a run-down condi
tion. The kidneys seem to suffer most,
as almost every victim complains of
lame back and urinary troubles which
should not be neglected, as these danger
signals often lead to more dangerous
kidney troubles.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root which, so
many people say, soon heals and
strengthens the kidneys, is a splendid
kidney, liver and bladder medicine, and.
being an herbal compound, has a gen
tle healing effect on the kidneys, which
is almost immediately noticed in most
cases by those who use it.
A trial will convince anyone who may
be in need of it. Better get a bottle
from your nearest drug store, and start
treatment at once.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., liignhamton, N. Y., for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure
and mention the Richmond 1'resby
terian of the South.
.Miss Groome's father was a promi
nent man and elder in the Hazlehurst
Through the influence of the
Groome family Hazlehurst was se
lected as the place for the home of
the missionary's family. A modest
cottage, surrounded by oaks and
cedars, on a beautiful eminence, was
purchased and deeded to the heirs ol
Mr. and Mrs. E. B. lnslee. The name
of each and every child is recorded
in the deed.
In 1872 the family became resi
dents of Hazlehurst. Mrs. lnslee had
a strong voice and could sing anything
in the hymn-book. For years she was
a valuable assistant in the choir and
taught a class in the Sunday-school.
She was a laborious student of the
Sunday-school lessons and regular at
tendant of all the services of the
church, day and night. She read thou
sands of good books. Friends in many
parts of the land knew her tastes ami
supplied her with rare and costly
For the past six years she has been
an invalid. She was buried at Rose
land, La. Her early life was lull of
activities, incidents, adventures and
trying experiences. Her later years
were quiet, meditative, serene and
full of faith.

On January 12, 1918, the careei
of Mr. George L. Emmons, the Su
perintendent of the Laurel Industrial
School near Richmond was brought
to a sudden end by death from
apoplexy. His death came as a tre
mendous shock to his many friends,
who thought him to be in the ber-t
of health. The Church, the commu
nity and the State has suffered a
great loss in the death of Mr. Em
mons. From the very beginning of
the Presbyterian church at Laurel
Mr. Emmons was one of its warm
est supporters, being tireless in his
efforts to promote its interests. For
six months before his death he had
been a ruling elder, performing the
duties of that office with earnest zeal.
Mr. Eminons was looked upon by
every one as the father of the com
munity that radiated from the sta
tion at Laurel. He seemed to carry
them all, old and young, in his big
heart and always responded to the
numerous appeals that came to him
for counsel and for help of every
kind. Rut his influence has not been
confined to the Church and commu
nity at Laurel, but has spread all
over the State, and even into other
States. For thirty-three years his life
had been devoted to the uplift of
wayward boys, in seeking to make
men of them. So that the thousands
of boys who have passed under his
