While her death had been ex pected the event came as a sur prise to many who hoped that she might recover to again take up the work of ufe, but the de cree had gone forth and she died retaining her senses to the last, supported by the husband to whom she had been a loyal help mate for more than twenty-six years, biie was essentially a home body and the fire-side will indeed appear desolate to the sorrowing husband when he meets her familiar presence no more. The friends and neigh bors who were wont to visit and be visited in turn by Mrs. Black- tngton will also miss her. Mrs. Blackington had lived in Socorro since 1881, her maiden name being Rhoda Martin. She was born at Marttnsdale on the Hudson in the State of New York, October 17. 1852. When young she with her parents re moved to Freeport, 111., thence to northern California and later to Humboldt, Kansas. In 1881 she came to Socoto to visit Mrs. Mills, wite of Captain John Mills. While visiting at the Mills home she met Dr. Charles F. Blackington, the husband who survives her. They were united in marriage on January 1. 1882. 1 wo children were born of the union, both dying in in fancy. When quite a young girl Mrs. Blackington professed religion, uniting with the Presbyterian church in which she haJ been a zealous and untiring worker up to the time of her last illness. For twenty years she was an earnest laborer in the work of the Ladies' Aid society of the Presbyterian church and by her death the church and the society lose a valued and able member. The funeral took place this (Saturday) morning at 10 o'clock from the family home. Rev. M. Mattlueson, assisted by Rev. i. L. Meeker, officiated at the obsequies at the cemetery. Ap propriate hymns were sung by a choir composed of four voices. The esteem in which Mrs. Blackington was held by neigh bors and friends was verified by the numerous floral offerings, among them being a magnificent bouquet of pink carnations and asparagus ferns as atribute from the Ladies' Aid society.
