J.C. Brier died at his home near Pine Cillage Monday night from fever. The funeral services were conducted from the residence at 10 o'clock Wednesday. Mr. Brier was a most estimable young man and his death is greatly felt by all who knew him. Mrs. Martha Howard died at her home in this place at 2 a.m. Sunday morning after a long illness from dropsy, aged 75 years, 10 months and 23 days. She was the wife of _ Howard whose death preceded hers some twelve years. She was the mother of Wm and John Howard and Mrs. Hattie Slauter of this place. The funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Myers, were held at the residence at 10 a.m. Monday after which interment was made in the Goodwine Cemetery in Liberty Township December 5th, 1893, Lova Edith, youngest daughter of H. B. Tyler, was parted from earth life into the heavenly and is now at rest in the arms of her Savior. For five long weeks she courageously endured the ravages of typhoid fever, but on Monday night, Dec. 4th, the waiting friends saw the death angel hovering near and at 1:30 a.m., Dec. 5th, she passed to the eternal home. Only seventeen short years was she permitted to brighten our lives, but in that time she had crept into our hearts and enshrined herself in our every thought. Of an unusually kind and gentle disposition, she bore her long suffering without a murmur; always expressing her gratitude to the loving father and sisters for every service rendered her. Her life reminds us of a delicate flower which growing in its beauty blooms and expands under the joyous influences of the genial sunshine. At the first rude blast it is cut down and with dropping head hides itself in the earth. In early life she obeyed her Master's command and gave herself into His care. Let us not grieve as those who have no hope. Knowing her afithfulness and feeling sure that her frail bark is anchored in the ports of heaven. No storms can assail her while the great captain has her in His loving charge. Bertie Clark, son of Mrs. May Slauter, formerly of this place, died at the home of his mother in Wabash, Nov. 22d, from consumption. Mrs. Slauter's many friends here sympathize with her in her sad loss.
