S. Nichols, on March 2s, at seven a.m. She has been a mem her of the C. P. Church for fourteen vears, and to the time of her death lived an exemplary christian life she was a strict reader or the HiDle, and her delight was in the law of the Lord While the grim monster, Peath, is no respecter of persons, he did not come to ner unexpecteaiy, or nna ner unpre pared for his call. She had been con fined to her room for more than three months. To be released from her pain of long and weary waiting in sickness. and to be present with Him in that glorv land, where pain, sickness, and death are no more, was to her a consoling thought. To know her was to love and admire her. Many friends followed her remains to their last resting piace at Lasting Hope Cemetery. Funeral services were conducted at Lusting Hope Church March 2!t, by Kev. W. T. l)nle and T. J. Dixon. We will all miss her; her place cannot he tilled.
