out the community, having served a
number of terms as Squire in the
township in which he lived. The
remains were brought home from
Athens Monday on the evening train.

Grange Hall near his home.---
Mrs. Elizabeth A. Blackburn was born May 3, 1836, and died at her home in Cheshire township, Gallia county, Ohio, April, 25, 1895, aged 58 years, 11 months, and 22 days. She had been a member of the First Kyger Church for many years. She bore her illness with patience, and during her sickness always had a kind word for all her friends. Could each tear of regret for her departure be dropped as a blossom upon her grave, she would be beneath a wilderness of flowers. She was a kind mother, but we should not mourn. We must all live so that, when our time comes to go, we may meet mother in heaven.
Mother, thou wast mild and lovely,
How gloomy the days are without her;
Oh, how sad it was to give her up,
Dearest mother thou hast left us,
Then let our sorrow cease to flow,
