In Memoriam. Ollie E. Moore, daughter of Thomas C. and Mary Moore, died at her home near Green Hill, Indiana, on the morning of november 10th, 1892, at the age of twenty years, nine months and nineteen days. Just as the bright light of life was falling upon her, just as the hopes and ambitions of the world lay bright and sweet before her, just as she stood on the threshold of womanhood with a broad rich rield of usefulness and honor open to her, just as her hands were ready to take hold of life's work to advance it, the angels came and took her with them. Ollie's life was like the opening rose, sweet, pure and full of virtues. Her disposition was such, as a mother would point to as a worthy example for her daughers. She was the soul of kindness, the type of gentleness, and full of sympathy, wherever sickness or sorrow prevailed within her reach, she was there; wherever sacrifice was required for the sake of good, she was there; wherever duty demanded that she should be, she was there. In her home life she was gentle and confiding, in her social life she was cheerful and loving; in her church life, extending through several years, she was eve ready for any duty to which she was called. Giving her heart early in life to her master, she entered at once into His work with earnestness and zeal, neither shrinking from labor, nor faltering in duty. She expressed herself during the last few days of her life as desirous to live, but if God willed it so, she was willing and ready to die. So a bright sweet life has gone out, a life that by its purity won the hearts of all who intimately knew her, that by its labors brought blessings to those round about her, and leaves a precious memory that the lapse of years will not efface. While our eyes are filled with tears and our hearts with sorrow, let us thank God for the blessings her noble young life has wrought among us, and for the twenty happy years He permitted her to be with those who loved her. Her funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. J. Claypool of Kentland, at Armstrong Chapel, Saturday, Nov. 12th and her body was tenderly laid away in the cemetery adjoining, amidst flowers and evergreens in profusion. Uncle David Shepherd, an aged gentleman of State Line, died on last Wednesday. The remains were interred at the Masonic Cemetery on Thursday.
