Obituary
Mrs. J. Copley.
Isabel White Copley was bom in
Scotland Sept. 26, 1840 . She mar
ried John Copley March 19, 1884.
Died Jan. 26, 1921 in the 81st year
of her life. One sister only is left
of her immediate family, Mrs. Mar
garet Earle and five nephews and
four nieces.
Funeral services were held from
the home on Saturday afternoon
Jan. 29 and from the Congregational
church conducted by Rev. C. L. At
kins and the Rev. L. A. Parr of Eau
Claire.
“The minister spoke of the Christ
ian faith in immortality, of the com
fort and hope given to us by the
words of Christ: “I am the Resur
rection and the Life: He that be
lieveth on Me tho he die yet shall
he live, and whosoever liveth and be
lieveth on Me shall never die.”
He went on to say that the one we
now lay away had this faith in her
heart. For more than four score
years Mrs. Copley had lived the life
which God had given her. And now
for her there has come translation
and emancipation. Deep in her in
most life there was faith in God and
eternal things. Her upright walk
thru lfie, her loyalty to all that was
good and true; her lifelong connec
tion with the church, most of the
time with the Congregational church,
her interest in the progress of the
Kingdom of God. What were these
if not the fruit inner and inmost
sense of God?
Her life has now been lived, her
record written both in heaven and
in our hearts. She was one of the
strong, pioneer type who help to
found this local community. Four
score years did she live and help
and uplift. We are the better for
her influence and now she has gone
to that life where there is no more
sighing nor any more pain.
Tax Free.
In these times of excessive taxation,
why not have a talk with me about
municipal bonds? They rank next to
United States government bonds in se
curity and they and the income derived
from them are free of taxes. There is
no part of this territory which I have
not sold them and your neighbor can
tell you that there is never a delay in
payment of either principal or interest.
See me about them.
D. W. North.
—I want a share renter for twenty
acres of tobacco land. Don’t apply
unless you intend to take A Number
One care of the land. Also see me
about a good 80 acre farm. —D. W.
North. 1
