John Grant, an old soldier and for years a sufferer from consumption, died at his home in Attica last Monday. The funeral services were held Tuesday. Truman Russell, an old resident of this county, died at his home in Attica Tuesday morning after a breif illness. This will be sad news to his many friends in the county. Samuel Davis, one of the oldest settlers of Prairie Township, died at his retired home in Boswell Tuesday morning. Mr. Davis was well and favorably known in the county and leaves a host of warm friends behind. John Canutt, an old citizen of Warren Township and a brother of Enos Canutt, a former newspaperman of this place, and well known in this county, died at his home near Inpendence last Friday from cancer. The funeral services were held Saturday after which interment took place at the Independence Cemetery. Mrs. J. P. Darling departed this life at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Robert Cole, Danville, Illinois, May 20th, 1893, aged 74 years, April 11th last. She was born April 11th, 1819, was united in marriage to J. P. Darling in the year 1841. To them were born 11 children seven of whom survive her, four having gone before her. Her husband died in 1873. When at the age of 18, she united with the Presbyterian Church and has often confessed her confidence in Christ. She endured her suffering of one week's duration without murmuring or complaining. She called for brother and sister Swank, and the writer, sister Stinespring, to pray with her. We answered her summons and prayed with her. When asked if she was ready to go she said she was ready, waiting and wanting to go, her prayer was that the Lord take her and that she might go calmly and quietly and we prayed that God would grant her request. He took her so quietly; she only went to sleep in Jesus' arms as she closed her eyes in this world to open them in heaven. The sunlight of God illuminated her brow. Truly the Psalmist said, "Mark the perfect man and behold the upright for the end of the man is peace." Mrs. Cole stood by her mother through her illness with all the love and tender care that a daughter could give to a loving mother. Some of Mothers Darling's children have confessed their confidence in God; some are yet without the fold. Let all Christian people pray that they may be gathered within the fold that they may be an unbroken family around the throne. Mrs. Joe Parish died at her home Sunday at 2:30 p.m. she leaves a husband, child and a host of friends to mourn her loss. (*Born to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Parish, a son of standard weight)
