She leaves an aged companion with whom but last October she celebrated her 51st wedding anniversary, also 7 children and 14 grandchildren were permitted to visit her in her last illness and hear her many words of love and trust, and resignation to a savior's will continually fall from her lips. Very early in life she united with the Methodist Church, which was always dear to her as the apple of her eye. In life she not only proved herself a Christian but upon nearing death gave to all who saw her the unerring testimony of a Christian. She made all preperations before death, for her burial ceremonies, selecting as her funeral text the 13th verse of the 14th chapter of revelations, the songs, the pallbearers, the grave sexton, as also those who should prepare her body for the grave. The funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Bisel, were held at 1:30 Friday from the family residence after which mothers remains were consigned to their last resting place in the Masonic Cemetary Near State Line. We shall all miss mother, but her constant request was: "Dont mourn after me." Hence we look forward to the happy time when we shall meet mother again where farewells will not be spoken, and trust when we are called that our end may be as glorious as hers. Mrs. Jane swank, wife of James Swank and mother of Dr. Swank, died at her home in this place after long illness from consumption at 4 o'clock wednesday morning. The funeral services, conducted by her pastor, elder M. V. Grisso were held from the residence at 11 o'clock this morning after which interment will be madein the West Lebanon Cemetary. Mrs. Swank was an exemplary Christian woman and diednloved by all. Her death though forseen is a sad blow to all. Died Tuesday evening at Eureka Springs, Ark., Mrs Joel S. Briggs of a complication of diseases. The remains will be brought home Thursday afternoon and the funeral services will be held at the family residence in West Lebanon at 12 o'clock Friday.

White, who has been under arrest, has remanded for grand jury action. Mollie E. Watkins was born in Putnam County, Ind., June 12th, 1853, and died in pine Village, Ind., Jan. 24t. She was married to Augustus Barker, Dec. 14th, 1874. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Yount at college-Corner Church, where she had long been a consistan member. Those who knew her best loved her most and a large circle of her friends deeplu mourn her loss, but it is in her home where she had been such a faithful, loving wife and mother that her loss will be most keenly felt. Husband, children, parents, brothers, sister, all those whose lives her life has touched are sorely bereft and yet most wonderfully blessed. Her tired hands are folded for a long rest, but her untiring love, her good influence, these are immortal and will continue to hallow the lives of her dear ones. Mrs. Barker had been sustained by Gods grace in life and was enabled to triumph in death. She died of consumption and during years of suffering she was patient and submissive. For her to die is gain. Mrs Jane Crawford recieved a telegram last Thursday that her stepson, Jacob Kisling, had died that morning at eaton, Ohio.
