Mr. Bassett Sketches Miss McKib ben's Life. in ve u, t. Z'U' The morning service at the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Chinch yesterday was devoted to the memory of Miss Mattie L. McKibben, of the Daughters of Juarez school, who died of pneumonia on last Tuesday morning. There was a large audience in attendance, nearly all of whom had known Miss McKibben in life and who had admired her for her many sterling qualities.' Tfye Rev. H. A. Bassett, who returned last week from his vacation, delivered a brief sketch of the life of MIBS McKibben. Following this be preached an interesting sermon from the third chapter, eleventh verse of Revelations, "Behold 1 come quick ly." The sermon was particularly ap propriate for the occasion. Mr. Baa* sett's paper on Miss McKibben's life was as follows: 'Miss Mattie L. McKibben, who pass ed'to her eternal leward last Tuesday morning, was a resident of Iowa for many years. When she reached matur ity and desiring an education, she en tered the Iowa Wesleyan college from which institution she was graduated after having completed the full course. For a number of years following she taught school in various cities. She was an enthusiastic and successful teacher. Having given her heart to God in early life she developed a strong Obristian character and was an earnest worker in all religious and philanthropic efforts. Walking in the light of divine guidance she was led to offer herself to the missionary society for service in some foreign field. It wqp about decid ed that she should come to Mexico, when her mother sickened and died. Feeling that her duty was to her father and biothers and sisters, she wrote the church authorities asking to be released from her engagement. For about six years she assumed the responsibility of the household matters in her father's home. Last year she again offered herself to the missionary society and she was appointed to teach in the womans' for eign missionary school in this city. She arrived here March 24 of the present year. Her whole soul was in her pros pect and not waiting to completely learn the Spanish language sbe began distributing tracts and doing such other work as she could. Her enthus iasm has perhaps never been surpass ed by any worker in this field. Only a short time elapsed until she was suffi ciently familiar with the language to be able to assume a large share of the school duties. She was especially suc cessful in training a large choir of native young people who always led the singing in the Mexican congrega tion. Miss McKibben was also a very efficient worker in our English services. She always presided at the organ in our Sunday school and at the Wednes day evening prayer meeting. Her loyalty to duty and her earnestness made indelible impressions upon our hearts. She lived but a few months after reachinsr this field but into those months she crowded a great work, the results of which will only be fully known when the great record book oi eternity is opened. In her last illness she said to her associate teacher: 'When we all get Home with all these children we will then feel that love's labor hbs not been lost." On Sunday, November 4, she assumed her part in both the English and Mexi can services. On Monday sbe was feeling poorly and retired earlier than usual. For two or three days she re mained in her room hoping that she was improving. On Thursday a physi cian was summoned who pronounced tier seriously ill with pneumonia When informed of her condition she replied, "I do not care to die as that closes all opportunity for doing good.' To another friend she said, "Do*not be •anxious about me as I am prepared to die if necessary." From Friday until Tuesday morning, November 13, at one o'clock, the hour of her death, sbe was delirious much of the time. During her rational moments Bhe said tbat she has beard the children of the kinder garden singing, 'siempre aqui reposare" .... "V" "forever here my rest shall be," only that "the music had more tban earthly sweetness." During Sunday and Monday she con tinually grew worse and at one o'clock Tuesday morning, November 13, her spirit left the tenement of clay and winged its flight to its eternal home."
