DEATHS.

Kale—Sarah Elizabeth Horton was born in Indiana, Jan. 5, 1848. She was married to Alfred kale, July 3, 1867. To this union were born six children: Charles Sherman, who died in infancy; John G., Frank Marion, Nettie May, Nancy Evelyn and Laura Maud.

She lived and died a Christian life, thinking and laboring her whole life for the comfort and happiness of others. She was a member of the Claytonville Methodist church the last two years of her life, but was originally baptized into the Christian denomination. She never had an enemy or quarrel while on earth. She died without a murmur for herself and without a word of pain which closed the last page in her book of life which went to her Master sealed by the hands of his eternal love to be reopened on that great last day.

The funeral service was held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the family residence eight miles south of town and was conducted by Rev. A. E. Wardner, assisted by Rev. J. W. Bolton, of Willis. Mrs. Rex Kathrens sang “The City that Lieth Foursquare” and the Claytonville Methodist choir furnished three selections. The body was laid to rest in Claytonville cemetery. A large number of people were present and a wealth of floral offerings testified to the love and high esteem in which the departed was held.
