The Last Sad Bite. The funeral services of the late Anna Stevens, held at the German Reformed church, Tnesday, were largely attended. Rev. : Martin, the present pastor delivered a sermon in. German, and Rev. C. M. Schaaf, the. former pastor of the church delivered a : sermon-In English. The sermon of Rev. Schaaf was a most eloquent one, and a fitting tribute to the memory of departed-member of his church. f The effect . upon the audience can not be better told than in the language of an observing ten-year-old boy who was present, and wt o in speaking of it afterward, said: "I'll tell what, there were lots of people mourned for Anna Stevens, to-day, who had never Known her." Yes, my little lad that is true, but those who knew her best, mourned most and will mourn for her longest. The tributes paid the departed one by Rev. Schaaf were certainly high, they were from the heart of one who was a close acquaintance, an acquaintance made Jas her pastor and friend, and were fully deserved, for to have known her was to love her and to those who knew her, the fact of having known her is a sweet remembrance. Rev. Schaaf took as his text, the words found in the 13th verse of the 13th chapter of 1st Corinthians; "Now abideth faith, hope and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." Each word was taken and its full significance analyzed and discussed and the lessons he drew from this text poured comfort into the hearts of the sorrowing relatives and friends. The sermon was an appropiate eulogy on a noble life. The funeral cortege was one of the longest that has been seen in Hunting ton for a long time, which was a fit ting testimonial of the esteem in which Miss Stevens was held. CARD OF THAXK8. The family wish to express their thanks to the many friends and neighbors, who so kindly assisted during the hours of their sore trial. Store your goods with E. Shanks & Co. 7tf .
