Martha A. Ladd, who was sick so long with consumption, passed away on Saturday, the 17th, at five o'clock. She laid in wait for her time to come; at last it came. She passed away without a struggle.

She was a good, kind, hard working mother, and was a great loss to her family.

Her funeral was preached on Monday the 19th at 9 o'clock A. M., by Rev. Jones, of Van Meter. Her funeral was a large one, and the sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved family in their sad affliction.

She was born in 1835, age 55 years, 2 months and 8 days.
