Mrs. Anna A. Slauter, daughter of Ambrose and Mary Rank, and wife of W. L. Slauter, died at her home in this place after an illness of several months from consumption at 3:05 p.m., last Friday, aged 31 years, 1 month and 16 days. Mrs. Slauter was born in Lafayette where her parents then resided, Feb. 2, 1861, where the family resided until two years later when they removed to Attica, Ind., where she resided until her marriage to Wm L. Slauter Dec. 22, 1879. She was one of a family of five children, two girls and three boys, she being the first of the children to be called over to join the mother who entered into rest about a year ago. Following her marriage to Mr. W. L. Slauter they moved to the farm in Liberty Township, where they resided until January 1883, when they moved to this city where she resided until death. Mrs. Slauter, we might say, has grown up in the church. At the age of fourteen she became a member of the Baptist Church in Attica and upon her removal to this place found a home in the Methodist Church, remianing an earnest worker in the Sabbath school and church, being organist for several years, as long as her health permitted. Her last hours, like those of every true Christian, were her brightest and happiest ones, rich in Christian experiences and pointing friends and loved ones to a higher, nobler life. The funeral services conducted by the Rev. Patterson were held from the M. E. church at 2:30 Sunday afternoon, when the house was filled to overflowing and the remains were interred in Hillside Cemetery to await the resurrection call. The bereaved husband, the two motherless little boys so needful of a mother's care, and the father together with the remaining brothers and sisters have the sincere sympathies of our entire people. Obituary. John H. Pope of Ambia, Ind., died at the home of his brother, James, in this place from the complications consequent upon la grippe, last Friday morning at 6:30 o'clock, after a long and tedious illness at the age of 31 years, 10 months and 16 days. Mr. Pope was born in Cassville Howard County, May 2nd, 1860, moving with his father and mother to Grant County, where the family lived until 1878, when they moved to Hoopeston, Ill., where they resided about four years. They moved thence to Ambia, Ind., where has since been their home. On October 16th, 1882, he was united in marriage to Miss Lizzie Crose, with whom he has since lived most happily. To them were born four bright little girls, who, with the loving wife, know what it is to be deprieved of a kind and loving father. Mr. Pope had been twice elected marshal of Ambia, a position he occupied at the time of his death. In July 1891, he was taken with the la grippe and has, despite all medical skill, been steadily failing. The last two weeks were spent at the Mineral Springs, under the care of Dr. Tanner and feeling somewhat improved, he came here Thursday noon on his way home. He grew much worse about 6 o'clock a.m., Friday and gently fell asleep about 6:30, without apparent pain. Interment was made Saturday at Locust Grove Cemetery near Ambia. The bereaved family and friends have the sympathies of our entire people. Mrs. Downs died at her daughter's, Mrs. C. C. Moore, one week ago last Friday, where she has made her home for the past ten years. She was 87 years old; the oldest person in this end of the county. She was taken to Battle Ground for interment, the funeral services being conducted by the Rev. Smith. She leaves three generations and a host of friends to mourn her death. We extend sympathies
