Kizzire, who have lived in in Decatur county for many years. She was born March 18, 1882, and died August '21, 1910, being at the time of her death 28 years, 5 months and 13 days. Her death came as a relief to her from years of suffering with that dread disease Consumption, which she endured as only those, who trust in their Savior, could. She said that she must suffer,as her Saviour had suffered for her. As he expressed to His Father, that he was willing to die for the world, so she expressed her desire to her parents, that she was willing to suffer and1 die for him. Her only sorrow was in parting with her faithful husband, which she leaves with her father and mother, two brothers and three sisters to mourn her departure. Everything was done by a loved husband and parents that could be done for her recovery, and skilled physicians, but without any relief. She was loved most by those who knew her best. She was a kind-hearted christian girl, which she proved in her daily walk and profession. Being satisfied in time of affliction as well as in time of health, trying to do good, helping the needy, giving a kind word of christian consolation to all, and if all she had done kindness to would bring a flower she would sleep today beneath a bed of roses. Funeral services were held at the home of her parents, northeast of Pleasan ton, Scripture lesson St. John 11th chapter, Text 25-26 verses. And Je sus said unto her I am the resur rection and the life he that believeth in me though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believ eth in me shall never die. Believeth thou this? This certainly would apply to our beloved sister, for she had not only believed in Him but had confessed Him to the world, and had followed Him in regeneration, and been bap tized with the baptism that he was baptized with, and drank the cup that he himself promised they should drink, and has now gone home with Him to rest in that celestial city above, where there will be no more sickness nor no more pain. For the former things have passed away. After funeral services the body was taken to Hamilton cemetery where her friends had prepared the tomb, which was to receive her body, where it would moulder away to its mother dust, waiting the call of the blessed master at the final resur rection day, and the spirit had as cended to the father who gave it, and all things there are finished. The Ghurch has lost a faithful member, the husband a loved com panion, the father and mother a ioving daughter, but their loss is her gain. Cyrus Deyoe.
