Mrs. Mattie Duxlap, whose maiden j
name was Robinson, was born in Faiifield
County, S. C., June 22, 1840, and died in
Columbia December 31,1S89, after a pain
She connected herself with the M. E.
Church, South, in early life, of which she
lived a consistent member up to the time I
of herdeatli. She manifested her iove for j
the church by aiways being ready to lend j
a helping hand to any good worlc. Her j
remains were interred in the 3f. E. Church
yard at Kidgeway on the 2nd inst, the
burial services being conducted by the
Rev. Mr. Hook.
Her beautiful life won for her many j
friends. A loving wife, an affectionate
mother: and a true friend has gone to rest
with God. We invoke the solace of divine
grace for the afflicted family, and especially
in behalf of the widowed husband.
Died, at Blythewood, on the 29tli of
December, 18S9: Juanita, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Eice Jones aged eight years,
one month and two days. This dGar little
j girl, so early called away, has been a great
: sufferer; but tender hands and loving
hearts did all that could be done to soothe
[ her sorrow and render her young, butfleeting.
life happy. Remarkably quiet, affeci
tionate and patient in her suffering, she
was the cherished idol of her fond parents.
They dceplv mouru the loss of their darling
child, but ^fondly hope to meet that
loved one again, where affection's ties are
no more riven and loving hearts no more
bleed. For well d? they know?
"Another little lamb has gone
To dwell with him who gave;
Another little darling babe
Is sheltered in the grave.
God wanted one more angel child
Amidst the shining baud;
And so he bent with loving smiles
And clasped our darling's hands."
