Another Good Lady Gone.

Mrs. H. A. Stephens, the wife of Mr. Uriah Stephens, passed from earth to her final rest at 6:30 o’clock last Thursday evening, the 26th instant, at her home in this city.

Her final illness lasted about six weeks, and she bore her sufferings with notable resignation and fortitude such as only those whose lives are without reproach can exhibit.

She was sixty-five years of age and had lived in this community during her whole life. She was a member of the Methodist church and during her almost life-long connection with that active religious denomination was zealous and consistent in all her Christian duties.

She leaves, besides her husband, a number of grown children to mourn their loss.

Her funeral occurred from the Methodist church Friday evening, the services being conducted by Rev. H. J. Ellis and R. H. Jones, each testifying in forcible and fitting language to her Christian virtues and exemplary life.
