--Since our last issue five esteemed members of our church have passed from the labors of earth to the rest of of (sic) heaven, viz:  Albert Steele, Walter Fickle, Mrs. Eunice Hall, Mrs. Mary Abbott, and Mrs. Mary Heiss.  Also four dear little ones from as many happy family circles.  Truly death is no respector of persons.

--On the 26th ult. we were called to the once happy home of Eugene Dunsbee (sic), south of Lexington, to officiate at the funeral of his wife, universally beloved.  Mrs. Dunsbee (sic), nee Miss Cleland, was an attendant upon the services of our church while we were pastor at Wooster, and she was among the brightest students at the university.  It was her dying request that we officiate at her funeral and minister comfort to her sorrowing husband and children.  It was pleasant to be thus appreciatively remembered, but we would have much rather spoken to her than of her.  Mrs. Dunshee (sic) possessed great natural endowments of heart and mind.  These were enlarged and intensified by a fine education.  Her ability was recognized on every hand.  Nothing was too much for her to do to lift up and better the condition of mankind.  And with all that she did for society in general, her own loved ones were not forgotten or neglected.  She was a model wife and mother.  She will be greatly missed.  Many years will come and go before another can be found to wear the mantel dropped by the bright, thoughtful, kind-hearted, benevolent and uplifting Mrs. Dunsbee (sic), when she ascended to receive her crown.
