Remarks of JEltlor George Gowen jit her Funeral. Mrs. Elizabeth Hudson, whose maid en name was Arnold, was born in this county, April 2 i, 1822. She was, there fore, seventy-five years of age last April. She was married to Morgan Hudson fifty-five years ago last July. On the 20th July she went with him to live at the old home near Sugar Creek, and continued an unbroken residence there until the 12th of January last, the time of brother Hu Ison's death. Sha then seemed to be in robust health, but his death lay so heavily upon her, and the breaking up of the old home was such a revolution in her life that she did'not survive him quite a year. It seemed that the whole of her life had gone out with his death. Their lives had certainly mingled into one. Even when she was comparatively well she constantly longed for the ti ne of departure when she might meet her life-long companion where lives are never rudely swept asunder One brother and one sister survive her. When sister llujsqn was yet quite a girl she accepted Christ and never af ter faltered in her devotion to Him. Her husband came into the church quite late in life. He was entangled in the dputrina.1 difficulties of these days, and could not see his way clear. But whga he saw the steadfast devo tion of his young wife; anq how she would saddle up a horse, and with one of the children behind her, always, go, evon to the Saturday mooting, so com' mon in those days, he yield d to the persuasion of her life. What logic, and argument would not do for him, a consecrated personality did. When he saw her thorough earnestness in the wayqf Ctyristi be, himself obayod the gospel. And sister Hudson was a woman of strong convictions about everything. She did nothing in doubt She be lieved something until the very last. Her religion was not of the jelly-fish sort. She was brought up in times that tried men's souls in almost every thing, especially in religion. She had a firm hold on the future. In my con versations with her during, and before her sickness, t geemed, that heaven was as real tq her as the present life. This is always so with people of strong taith. She was a woman of robust, common sense, a devqted bjOmerkeep er, wie agd mother-: One of the type of women who haye m.ade his, tor 5c and. glorious 8u many of the older homes in our country. She fills the descrip tion given by Solomon in Prov. 31:10: 31: 1Q. Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price j far above ru.bies, 11. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12. She will do nim good and not evil all the days of her lire. 13. She seekeih wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hinds. J4. She is lilfe the merchant' ships; she brtngoth her food from afar. 15. She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her house hold, and a portion to her maidens. 10. She considereth a field, and buy eth it; with the fruits of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17. She girdeth her loins with strength and strengthened her arms. 18. She perceiveth that her merchan dise is good; her candle goeth not out by night. 19. She layeth her hands to the spin dle, and her founds hold the distaff, 20. She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reachetb, forth her hands to the needy. 21. She is not air-iid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and pur- pie. 23. ner husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the eld ers ot the land. 24. She maketh fine linen, and sell- eth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant 25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and stie shall rejoice in time to come, 3d. She openeth her mouth with wis dom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness, 27. She looketh well to the ways of ner household, ana eatetn not the bread of idleness. 23. Her children arise un. and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praisetn her. 29. Many daughters have done vir tuously, but thou excellest them all. 30. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that leareth the Lord, she shall be praised. 31. Give her" of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praiss her in the gates. Four children survive her two sons and two daughters. They all can rie up and call her blessoJ. Almost her BARGAINS Hats, and Gents US A SAVE YOU MONEY. TRY last words to me were words of com mendation for her children. She died in perfect peace in the remarkably full andffree exereiso of all her facul ties. With the dissolution of the body there came a triumphant Spirit, which, released from its p.'ison-houie, mount ed upward to the skies. Her last words and actions bespoke her kindly welfare for others' interests before her own. With intellect unclouded, and heart aglow with love to the very last, she called each member of the household to her side and bade them good-bye as she went with the Saviour through the valley of the shadow into the light and splendor of the eternal morning.

People who fail to look after their health are like the carpenter who neg lects to sharpen his tools. People are not apt to get anxious about their health soon enough. If you are "not quite well" or "half sick" have you ever thought that your kidneys may be the cause of your sickness? It is easy to tell by setting aside your urine for twenty-four hours,a sed iment or settling indicates an unheal thy condition of the kidneys. When urine stains linen it is evidence of kid ney trouble. Too frequent desire to urinate, scanty supply, pain or dull ache in the back is also convincing prooi that the kidneys and bladder are out of order. There is satisfaction in knowing that the great remedy Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root, fulfills every wish in relieving weak or diseased Kidneys and all formB of bladder and urinary troubles. Not only does Swamp-Root give new life and activity to the kidneya -the cause of trouble, but by treating the kidneys it acts as a tonic for the entire consti tution.
