In Memoriam.

Mrs. Linton C. Crow, Who Passed Away on May 21st.

On the 21st of May, in the early morn while all was still and placid, a heavenly messenger stole softly from the courts of glory and bore on high the beautiful spirit of our beloved friend, Mrs. Linton C. Crow. While our hearts are sad and our eyes filled with tears, we recognize the right of an all wise God to do as He deems best even taking those who are dearest to us.

The illness of Mrs. Crow was long and trying, but it was borne with sweet patience and Christian fortitude.

In the relation of wife and mother she was very kind and loving. She was of a sweet nature and was very precious to her dear companions and children. As a friend she was always loving, helpful, kind to the sick and has the esteem of all her neighbors and friends.

As a Christian she was ever content to see Godís plans, like lilies pure and white unfold. She was indeed even fond of attending on the promises of God. Her death like her life was one of peace. It was like the setting sun bearing an after-glow. Though this lovely lily has shattered its snowy petals, the fragrance of its memory remaineth with us still.

Our hearts go out in sympathy to the bereaved husband and children that she loved so much. But may we all look beyond this dark moment to a glad reunion on the happy resurrection morn.
