To this union were l)orn nine c liUlren, live cf whom have preceded their mother to their last resting place. Those wlio are left to mourn the lo.>-s of their mother are: .Mrs. Mary Mylleneix, of Lallarpe, Kans.; .VIrs. Elizabeth Cochran, of near Humboldt, Kans.; Charles W.

She moved with her family to Kansas In ISfifi. She had made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Elizalieth Cochvan, of Center Grove, for nearly !'•> years. She united with the United Brtliren ch'ircli at the age of 16. She was ta'.tght to love the Lord from babyhood, as her parents were sudi devout Christians.; Her life was just as de- '•ntcrt and imre as a human's life can be. To know her was to love her, and another meek soul has left us whose life was exemplary. Her family and neighbors join in saying that they never know her to say an unkind or ha'-mful word of anyone. Slie gave her daughter, two days before her death, these comforting words; "Lizzie, you have done all for me tnat you could do-." She had no sickness, hut, death was d;io to old age, an'd she passed away as one going to sleep. She had been ucdfast for six months. The funeral ."Services were conducted from Mrs. Elizabeth Cochran's home Monday, .lanuary 18, 191.->. Burial was .it Le ^nnii, Kan.s. The family has tlie "incereFt sympathv of a liost of friend.i .^nd neighbors in this their sad bereavement. 'T!s finished; the conflict is iiast; The Iicavcn-liorn spirit is fled; His wish is accomplished at last— A mother entombed with the dead. The months ol affliction are o'er— The days and nights of distres.s. We sen her in anguish no more. .She's gained licr soul's liappy release. •No sickness or sorrow or pain Shall ever'disquiet lier now; For death to her spirit, was gain Since Christ was her life here he- low HT .sonl has,now taken its fiiglit To mansions of glory above. To mingle with angels of light And dwell in the kingdom of love. The victory is now obtained; She's'gone, her dear Savior to see; Her wishes she fully has gained; She's gone where she long wislicd . to be. Then let ua forbear to complain That she is now gone from our sight; We soon shall behold her again • With new and redoubled aclight.
