Thursday, January 30, 1908. r dee, said that before preaching on the Sabbath he sometimes visited some parishioners who might be lying lying extremely low, for he found it good "to take a look over the verge." Her devotion to her children was beautiful. Did ever a mother possess possess deeper solicitude for her children! children! Being a good Christian, she better understood and appreciated the responsibilities of motherhood. Gladly she gave her life a living sacrifice sacrifice to her children, and they, in turn, loved her with a grateful love. There were eight children who lived to be grown (two of them preceding her to the other world) and they vied with each other in loving ministrations ministrations to her. All was done, that could be done, to keep her here. Physicians were summoned, when mother said, "It's no use; let me go." She spoke of going away as though she were going to visit earthly friends. In her presence, some" days before she left, her pastor spoke of having to go away for a few days, she said to him don't be away many days for I want you to go with me over to Roper, meaning the place where her remains were to rest. For several days her body lay on the confines of the dark tomb, while her soul stood on Pisgah's top, viewing viewing with ecstatic joy the sunny Land. She told those around her bed that she heard the bells ringing, saw the angels, and heard them singing. Her remains were interred beside those of her husband, in Hebron church yard, at Roper, N. C, by her pastor. Sainted sister, in Christ, farewell! We shall miss thee, but not forget thee, and some day, through grace divine, we hope to meet thee in the banquetting house of our Father, and walk and talk with thee amid the hills of light! W. C. MERRITT.
