She was taken to the Mercy hospital at Davenport , abont two years ago , and there died on the 37th of April. The old lady during the last years of her residence here was in sadly destitute circumstances , and de spite the kindly assistance of others she uflerod great hardships. She insisted on occupying the little hovel alone , and was for days unable to wait upon her self properly. She was very old and in * Jim in mind as well as body. In her younger years she was most highly cul- tnred and accomplished , a wonderfully ( killful pianist , and in embroidery , fancy .work , etc. , there were few that could equal her. Many here still remember when she gave lessons in fancy needle work and music. Those who only knew her as she appeared in her days of pov erty and infirmity could hardly realize that she was but a wreck of a once ac complished , highly educated woman. A Fire.

MARKING A MILESTONE , The First Baptist Ohurch Starts Oat on aNew Now Year With Bright Prospects. REV. DR. COOLEY'S SERMON. The New Pirn Alarm Gets Two Tract- ! enl 'lYs. " Yesterday .Uriel * lilts of News Found Flylne About in Yesterday's Wind-Personal. A Church Anniversary. Yesterday morning Kev. Dr. Crooly preached an anniversary sermon at the Fiivt Baptist church , of which ho has been pastor for two years. Those who are familiar with the religious history of the city need not to bo reminded that this church has had a hard struggle. In the earlier years of its existence it worked hard and overcame many ob stacles. At last it had a line church building , in the very heart of the city , the society seemed gaining in numbers and strength , and brighter days seemed in htore. Then came the period of storm dlsscntions within and without , and the society was disbanded. When Rev. Dr. Crooly came here at the instance of the missionary society , to whom the property had been resigned , he tound a work more dillicult than that ot opening a new lield. There was not only all llio barrenness of uncultivated ground , but many olit stumps to be rooted out , fences to repair , and little but thu promise of plenty of hard work. Dr. Coolc.v has done grandly in rcorgani/ing and increasing. The so ciety seems harmonious , enthusiastic , growing and prospering in all way * . . The BKI : is not alone in observing the earnestness with which ho lias worked , the wisdom of liis management , his ability in the pulpit , and his warinhcurt- ness outside of it , and the congratulatory expressions called forth by his anni versary are but those frequently heard among those conversant with the history of the First Baptist church of this city. As the text lor his annual sermon yes terday morning Dr. Cooley chose the I'-Hli vcr.se of the ? th chapter of First Samuel "Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mi/.peh and Slion and a of it Ebune/.cr , saying , hitherto hath the Lord helped us.1 hi thus doing Samuel followed an instinct of the pious heart to commemorate thu helpreceived from God. Such was com mon with all the persons of the Bible. It was an act of thanksgiving expressed in a form that could not soon be forgotten. The incident thus suggested the two main thoughts , iirst , that we should make special mention of God's crcat blessings. Secondly , that we should ex press this remembrance in the most dura ble form. God wants not only gratitude ht the time a blessing is given , but an over grateful remembrance of it. He in stituted the Sabbath to call to remem brance the creation of our world. So the death and resurrection ot' Christ were commemorated by the two ordinances instituted for this purposu baptism and thu Lord's supper. So with the individual. The great fact of our lives should bu commemorated. As we have birthdays to mark thu years , so there should bo spiritual birthdays , never to bo passed by without special re membrance. Wo should not only bo over asking of the Lord , but ever thank ing him , and the great mercies of our past lives should have special t > easons of commemoration. Churches should have anniversary oc casions , for there was an individuality to a church. "Two years ago I commenced my labors as pastor of this church. Tlio text of my first sermon was the memor able words of Paul to the Corinthians 'For 1 determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ and him cruciticif. ' In that discourse 1 aimed to strike the key note of my ministry in this city. God knows and I know , and you doubtless know , that the succeeding notes have not been always in harmony , the tune has not been altogether sus tained , but yet I can call Godto witness that I have aimed to preach a crucified Christ as the only hope , and as the only ground of confidence for the Christian. Sly pleading and my other pastoral duties are full of imperfections. They have not satisfied myself , and I dare not claim they arc wholly acceptable to God , but poor as they are , I can honestly say that my only object in com ing to you , and in remaining with you , has been to honor God in leading soflls to Jesus and in making this a strong , stable , spiritual , otlicieut church of Christ. I am too old , eternity is too near , the ministry of reconciliation committed to my charge is too responsi ble for mo to value very highly the honor which only comes from men. Official position and the emoluments of office are of small importance in comparison with tlio approval ot God , and of a conscience void of offense , and the joy of saving lost men , and the development of Christian character. " The speaker then recorded some of thu blessings uud the marks of progress. The numbers of members had been nearl v tripled. Alienations and differences hail been removed , and whore they could not see alike they had silentlv agreed to forget. There had been no great ingath erings , ten being the largest number re ceived ot one time , but there had been continual accessions. There were only two or three young persons in the church when he came. Now there was a. host of them , full of promise and vigor. They were not only a great present help , but the future of the church was with them. There had been much work gathering in stray members , who came from otncr places hero , and had to be hunted up. and welcomed. There shall bo more ot this work , and in this every member should do all in his power. The second point in the discourse was how to best express this remembrance of God's hull ) in the most durable form. Samuel chose not wood but stono. An individual could by a life of consecration to ( iod erect a memorial moro durable than stone , one that would cnduro through all eternity. Character was the one thin ? indestructible. As a church , a public body , with a public reputation , there would bo a public commemoration. Ho suggested that as a memorial of Christ's great love , that measures be taken by the church to aid m the great benevolent operations of the day. lor the past few years the church had done but little outside of its own limits. This might have been necessary , but ho was thankful that these circum stances no longer existed. It was time to think and sacrifice for others in order to cultivate that large-hearted spirit of the gospel. Selfishness was no moro ex cusable in churches than in individuals. It stunted growth. ' It stood between the church and greater blessing. It could prosper o.ily as God blessed it and ho would only bless it as it went out of it self , and thought of a world lying in sin and wretchedness. Dr. Cooley presented the following facts and figures : There had been lifty- one received into membership during the past year , three by baptism , seven by ex perience and twenty-one by letter. The present membership was 163 , as com pared with only 57 two .years ago. The pastor had preached 110 sermons , at tended 170 prayer and religious meetings , made 430 visits , attended 13 sessions of the Sunday school and solemnized 15 marriages. There had been raised for all purposes about 81,700. Miss Molllo Corcoran , dressmaker , 714 Mynster itreet , between Seventh and Eighth. . . . , .

Just as Rev. T. J. Maekav was enter ing St. Paul's church yesterday morning ho was handed a telegram containing the sad announcement that his sihter , Mrs. iMoicc , had dlo-l at Osage City. Thu shock was a great one , and it was with dilllcult.y that the rector could proeued with tlio services. Saturday evening ho received a letter informing him of her illness , but no intimation was given that her condition was deemed in any way alarming. Mrs , Moico leaves besides her husband , a bubo about a month old.

RICHARD'S ' Electric Bath Rooms and Office No. 607 Mynster St. , Council Bluffs. One Square North of the P. O. Building. Treatment and Baths Given Ladies by Mrs. Dr. Richards on Tuesday , Thursday & Saturday. Electricity is a remarkable natural agent which has long been known and utilized as a remedy for disease , and continued experience has enlarged its sphere of useful ness and improved its appliances by which it is employed until its utility and virtue has become second to no other kncmii remedy , in the treatment of certain forms of disease. This agent is employed here in all its most serviceable forms by the aid of large batteries , static machin'cs , electric cabinet baths , electric water baths , the elec tric chair and electrodes for treating all parts of the body. We are prepared to do all that can be done with these great remedies. In cases of Rheumatism , Neuralgia , Paralysis , Spinal Iintatiou , Rectal Diseases , Nervous Diseases in females arising from Utc-ine disorders and many other chronic and subacutc troubles , it stands at the head of all known remedies or methods cute. A thorough study of it for years audlhe _ successful treatment of hundreds of cases , after all other remedies had fail ed , is sufficient evidence of its great worth and perfectly satisfies us. with its good cllccts on the diseased body. In the great hospitals and sanitarians of America and Europe , electricity is leading all other methods of treatment. In all leading college ? the professors arc teaching electricity as one of the potent remedies and a special chair is appointed in many of them. Many ol the ablest physicians of all' fchools are making a specialty of"eiectricitv to the exclusion of almost everything else. This great remedy has orten fallen into disrepute by being recommended and ii'.cd by persons , and physic'ans , perfectly ignorant of its properties and powers , who would as often advise and use the wrong current as the right one or depend upon it in diseases for which it is not adopted. We are sure that when the people become educated in the use of electricity ( or many diseases with which the body Is afflicted and find the sircat g'od therein , the medicines and patent righted not- trums upon which they now rely will grow old and dusty on the shelves. Electricity is nature's great remedy and to fully understand and skilfully apply it is our effort and aim in life.
