When only six years old she I lost her mother, the greatest calam ity that could have befallen her.

The passing away of this lovely christian, in the prime of life, and in the midst of her usefulness, is a sad dispensation to her family and her many sorrowing friends. Her life was a witness to the power and grace of the gospel of Christ, and her death a testimony to the beau ty and strength of her faith and fortitude. She was a patient suf ferer for many months; but, through it all she was forgetful of self - her chief concern being for the welfare of her attentive husband and loving sons. In caring for them it was natural that she was anxious for restoration to health, yet she was submissive to the will of Him "who doeth all things well," assured that in His keeping she was safe. In great physical weakness, sne kept up, as far as possible, to the last, an active interest in the affairs of her happy home. Faithful as wife and mother, her beautiful home life was a living testimony to the truth of her religious profession. With a charming personality she endeared herself to all who knew her, and a host of admiring friends now hold as a treasure, fond recol lections ot her nelptul companion ship. Mucn more mignt be said in praise of this noble woman, but she needs no eulogy from the pen. The memory of her pure life is that of a delicate flower crushed in the freshness of her bloom, but exhal ing a sweetness that will linger with all who loved her.
