Mrs. Elza Ma.rtin. : Mrs Elza Martin died on Wednesday - . nesday at her home northeast of . this city , at theage.of sixty-eight years. . The death of Mrs. Martin . marks the passing of a most excellent ' cellent woman. She was a ' . . . . woman of deep seated religious } : " ' , convictions and the Methodist church never produced a purer . . . ' type of Christian character or , a more exemplary exponent of its teachings and virtues. From her ! girlhood she lived in an atmos- , . . . 1 phere of Christian sanctity , and t . . . her life was a model ot consis- tency. In the years in which her . husband was a mInister of the f' } \ . . , . gospel she was his helpmeet in - : an things spiritual as well as ma- teiial matters. As a mother she gave to her children a beautiful . influence and kept undefiled the Christian atmosphere of the home circle. Hers was a life crowned f by good works , wrought in the : years of faithful service and when . , the finger of God touched her , " If ; , , , , . the pain was eased . , the suffering ' , . I' . . ended and she fell into the blessed I - , ed sleep of . those who die in the Lord. IR 1 The deceased was born near t : Columbus , Ohio in August 1835. i At the age of eleven years she moved with her parents to Daven- ! . port , Ia. , and in her twelfth year ti united with the Methodist \ church.
