Miss Fannie Patrickvboru Janu
ary 15, 1880, died January 2, 1901,
aged 20 years, 11 months and 18
days. Thus reads the sad chron

faith. She will be so sadly missed
by her many friends and grief
stricken relations, but she "rests in
peace" and is happier now than
when patiently suffering her afflic

hearts and bereaved home, .and pre
pare us to meet her in heaven, is
