ily, a brother, Rev. James Tufts of Mou
son, Mass., survives at the age of 83. Mrs.
Newton was 85. Their mother lived to be
03. Mrs. Newton was the widow of the
late Marshall Newton, whom she married
00 years ago. The first year of her mar
ried life was spent on Newfane hill, and
more than half a century in her late resi
dence here. Of her eight children, six
are living. Sickness somewhat enfeebled
her five years ago, and in tho last year there
has been steady out gentle uecune oi
strength, which in October days increased
noticeably and pressed rapidly on for tho
past two weeks. She suffered from Intense
weariness in tnese aays, out apparently
not from much pain. There were sinking
spells from which she rallied with the
flickering efforts of a strong constitution,
and her faco would again express great
tranquillity. On Tuesday, the springs of
her life here failed and she entered Into
rest. The funeral will be attended at her
late home Saturday at 11 a. m.

With the completion of tho parsonage at
Newfane village three of the four religious
societies In town have very pleasant places
of residence for their pastors, and all of
them have substantial houses of worship.
A good thing In connection with this is the
fact that all the societies are free from
debt. It must be said, however, that in
common with every rural community whose
population is yearly growing less the prob
lem of keeping the parsonage and the pul
pit filled is with us a growing one. If any
son ol Newfane, who has been prospered
in matters financial in the state of his
"adoption can, see connection enough be
tween his prosperity and his early training
In any one of these societies to warrant a
remembrance in his will, he would doubt
less be an important factor in that so
ciety's future history.
