She was the daughter of Rev. Simeon Powers, a Baptist minister. She was married to Dr. Pratt Feb. 24, 1811. In early life she became a disciple of Christ, and with her husband identified herself with the Church of Christ'in Canton in 1850. Mrs. Pratt was naturally of a sweet and lovely disposition, combining therewith a simple yet sublime faith and trust in God, she enjoyed a serene and peaceful lite. Hers was a vigorous mind, well stored with a varied knowledge, but especially with that knowledge which maketh wise unto salvation. Every faculty of her mind was fully retained until the last. Through the infirmity of age and frailty of this tabernacle, she put off the mortal to put on immortality. Thus in that same sweet serenity which had characterized her all through life, did her earthly journey close on Sunday morning, April 4. Five daughters, ail far past the meridian of life, live to cherish the sweet memory of a blessed mother. Many of her grandchildren reside in and about Canton, who will associate her memory with the tender-est recollections of the past. On Tuesday, April 6, we laid her away to sleep until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Presbytery of Lackawanna will hold its annual meeting at Scran ton ou April 19.

It lias been a mere coincidence, however, and in no way due to the sanitary condition of the school, which is good.
