As soon as the new pier at the j

Death Claims a*" Fair Young Victim.
Miss Bertha Agnes Eliason, aged 2S
ears, three months and thirteen days,
widest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. \V.
Sliason,--of the Fifth ward, died yeserday
afternoon at 2:10 o'clock. While
ler death was not unexpected, it
irought with it an unusual degree of
;adness because of the high regard in
vhicb she was held by all who knew
ter. She had been in delicate health
or several years, but her condition
iad been alarming since last January,
tbout ten years ago she had a severe
pell of sickness and it was hardly
hought she would survive, but she got
leuer and a part of the time since'
iad enjoyed fair health. For the last
ew weeks three physicians had been
n constant attendance upon her, but
.11 their efforts could not throw off
he ravages of her dreadful malady.
:he doctors do not exactly agree as
o the nature of her disease, but it is
he general opinion thac the cause of
ler death was tuberculosis of the
tomach and bowels. She suffered a
reat deal, but when death came she
iassed away calmly and peacefully,
urrounded by ail the members of the
amily, who had been present for the
ist week, knowing the end could not
e far off.
Miss Bertha's life was a benediction
d all who knew her. She had a most
weet and amiable disposition, and no
ne knew her but to love her. She
as gentle, loving and kind. She always
greeted you with a smile, and
ou felt when in her presence that
he possessed a spirit of rare sweetess.
She was an affectionate sister
nd an obedient and considerate
aughter, whose place cannot be filled
i the home where she was so paently
cared for. Owing to her deliate
health, the members of her famy
always showed her unusual marks
f kindness and consideration.
Miss Eliason made a profession of \
aligion about five years ago and lived !
1 accordance with the vows she made. I
he was recently baptized and be- !
ame a member of the Central Chris- j
on Church. She leaves a father and
lother, two sisters. Misses Amy and
ddie. and three brothers, George,
falter and Frank, to mourn their
>ss. Her remains will be laid
; rest to-morrow afternoon.
The funeral services will take place
: the home at 2 o'clock, conducted by
cvs. W. M. Long, of New Martinsille.
arid W. J. Eddy, of Fairmont.
