She was united in marriage to Jacob H. Rupe, August 1st, 1878. She united with the M. E. Church at the age of 9 years in Muskingum county, Ohio.

The funeral services were held at the church on Monday, November 16th, and were largely attended. Rev. F. Gillilan, of Middleport, officiating.


I stood by the narrow casket,
    And gazed on the silent form,
All safe from the heat of summer,
    All safe from the winter storm.

At rest from the pain and struggle,
    At peace in our Father's arm,
No more shall the trials weary,
    No more can the suffering harm.

The sleeps with green grass above her,
    As pure as each beat of her heart,
In life it is everywhere claiming
    Of love on her bosom a part.

The smile on her face yet lingers,
    That ever among us she wore,
As if 'twas a jewel reflecting
    Some light from the heavenly shore.

She will dwell in our memories ever,
    Like sunshine too quickly away,
While oft through the rift of the future,
    Shall glisten a beautiful ray.

God has called thee home, dear Mary,
    To His bright and happy home;
Though we loved you dearly, fondly,
    We have said, Thy will be done.

[Death of] Mrs. Clement Hooper.

[Derth]ula Hooper, widow of the [late Cl]ement Hooper, died at her home, about four miles south of this city last Thursday evening of catarrh of the stomach. Mrs. Hooper was aged about fifty-six years and was the mother of three daughters, all of whom are living. Funeral services were held Saturday at the Bassett church, conducted by the Rev. Fulton, of Gallia county, assisted by Rev. E. N. Long, of Albany. The remains were interred in the cemetery connected with the church. Mrs. Hooper was a consistent christian woman and a working member of much ability in the Freewill Baptist church. She leaves a large circle of friends who will be deeply pained to hear of her death.

[top left corner of the clipping is missing. She was Derthula (Coughenour) Hooper, b. 01 Jun 1852, an older sister of Esther Virginia. Died Jan. 15, 1898, Athens Co., Ohio.]

Death's Sudden Appearance.

Boyd Lyle, a thrifty farmer living a short distance from Kyger, was stricken down with heart disease at his home Feb. 1st. He had been in poor health for sometime from this affliction, though his death was not anticipated, hence it falls with the force of a sudden shock upon his family and friends. Mr. Lyle was born in Meigs county, July 23, 1845, and was therefore in his fifty-second year. He was a soldier, serving in the 53d O. V. I. For a number of years he has been a resident of Gallia county. A sister and four brothers survive him, while in his immediate home he leaves a wife, three children and one grand-child to mourn his death. He was a good-natured, companionable man, agreeable at home and abroad, and a most obliging neighbor. Interment took place Thursday at Poplar Ridge cemetery, Rev. W. J. Fulton of Rio Grande, conducting the funeral service.

[apparently died 02 Feb 1897 according to county death records, an uncle of Emmet Lyle.]

There is a very pretty new egg salad just invented. Place crisp lettuce leaves upon an individual plate. Cut the white of a hard boiled egg in the form of petals (in strips the long way of the egg), and spread them out in the form of a water lily. Put the hard boiled yolks through a vegetable press or a ricer and place carefully in the center of the lily. The imatation [sic] of a lily is very good indeed. Pass a salad dressing with this salad.

Increased Capital Stock Monday

     In pursuance to a called meeting, a large number of the stockholders of the Gallia Produce Company met Monday at the Court House and voted to increase the capital stock of the company from $50,000 to $100,000.
     The increase was made necessary by the recent purchase of the Gill Produce Company in this city, and more capital was needed to carry on the enlarged business.
     The stockholders expressed themselves as pleased with the business outlook of the new company.
