SEXOISGEHCM OF MB& STUCK. LAm A CHenS of 1^ • Strickland, who died a few days mgio, has oontribnted the followins article on the life ot the deceased: In the death of Mrs. Strickland Allen county loses the oldest- and one of 'its most remarlcable women; Jane Ann Smith was bom in Troy, N. Y., December 20th. 1811. She spent the! year 1824 in New York and was one of the Sabbath school children who scattered flowers at the feet of LaFayette when he landed In that city on his return to America. She wail endowed with great intellectual powers, strong courage and deep religious feeling. One asked. '•When did Jane become a Christian." iuiother who knew her well replied. '*She was always a Christian." She imlted with the M. E. church at the age of sixteen and for more than nine ty years was H consistent member. Her education was completed at the acailenty founded, in Troy. N. Y.. by Miss Emma Wll'ard. the historian, it being the first school In the United States that higher branches were taught to women. Her cultivated mind TONI(GniT A Comedy Drama in 4 Acts'. Frm Prisofl to Piliee Lower Floor BttlCOBf Iowa Store In Up to the age of R T sight part'ally failed, she was a con slant render of current liter,nture. Her memory was goo.l to the last and to eonv.^rsp with her of the many historical events that were crowded Into her of almost a century of existence was like readlus: vIvid history. November l .'i. ls.13. her brother. Ishinael Smith, was Injured by the xplosion of a canncn ami arm wii.x amputated. During the folowing night one of the men In attendance vas rejjuested to recall the physician l>ut when he openeil the door to go. •'the stars wera falling." Several of the men who were there refused to .o. but the joiing lady fearing for her brother's life threw her apron over hear h?ad. rushed through the snapping. fier>- shower to the physician's residence seven Mocks away jind broueht hbn hack with her. She was married to Selden Strickland December 15. ISSfi and they moved to Morgan coiint.v. I llinois. Of the ten children born to them sh-:? followed .seven of them with aching heart to t|ieir graves. In ISfiO the family moved to Allen county. Kansa.s. and settled on the farm where she died. Mrs. Strickland required all her courage and fortitude in her new home. Several times she nearly lost her life in aiding o(h(»r3. In the winter of 18fi2 Mrs. Strickland took h?r on a sled drawn by oxen to see a family of w-ar refugees from Arkansas Ilvinir In a cabin on what •'^ now the Nadler farm. They found the man just ab'e TO be up. two boys very s'ck. the married daughter, bare•y sixteen, whose husband was in th3 lebel army, dyine of pneumonia. The tiothcr of the family had perished rii the road. Mrs. Strickland decided n stay with the stricken family whtle ^*r. Stritkland went home to thr^ir little ones. During the nisht the young la(?y died and Mr"?. Strickland with her own hands, laundered the bridal dress that had been saved from the wr.^ck of their pillaged home, dried the garments by the fire and irrayed her for burial: but her ex •rtions had brought on an attack of 1 ma'ady from which she has lon^ uffered. For relief she took a dose of laudanum but It was home-mad.- and of unusual strength and soon a jiiimbness began to creep over her. .'{he could help no more. She knew bat to stay was to die and she resolved to get home. At two o'clock h,' started to go the two miles over the desolate waste of drifting snow, no land-mark to guide her in lie darkness.—^falling, pray ng. rais- ;i:g. and staggering on—she never knew where she went, "only" .she said "I praj'ad ever time T fell ti"l I could set tjp and go on." -At daybreak her husband, bearing a faint moan at the door, found that she had fallen there. The doctor said that the walk had aved her life. In 1SC.1 Mr. Strickland died, but in her- grief and loneliness she never forgot those around her. But a few minters after his death a lady whose husband had recently died moved- their children into a cabin In the woods on Deer Creek. Her little children came to llrs. Strickland with the news that their mother was sick. The creek was out of its banks and blizzard was raging. None but she eotild get to the cabin. She went and all night long she strove to save the life of the mother and the babe .hat was born that night. The storm blew the snow through the house hut she worked till morning ,with noj ihouffht jof herself. Both mother and rh'Id Etiil I've in far off Montana: their dainty Christmas gifts have gad dened the heart of the one who helped them in their hour of need. Her whole life Is but -a record of j loving labor and salf sacrifice. Her' chief regret as the weakness of age came on was her Inability to help anyone. Sometimes she longed to join those who had gone befora and yet she clung with tender grasp to the children and neighbors who were left. She had been slowly failing for many we<'ks and when pn.'»umonla seized her she was too weak to re sist the attack. For several days she suffered much, then sleep came to her and so sleeping she yielded up to God, "the white flower of her blameless life." The loving hands of her neighbors .irrayed her frail form In the robes she had long since provided and prepared her final resting place in Pleasant Valley cemetery. Sha has gone from us hut her !ove win he remembered an<5 for* many years her memory will be revered. She leaves three children. T. F. Strickland, of lola: Mrs. H. S. Onart. of LaHarpa. and Mrs. M. S. Henderson of Klncald besides fifteen grand children and five great grand children. Services were held at the Diamond chnrch by the Rev. McProud of Colony. Tuesday. Decamber.
