OBITUARY MRS MARY ANN JOHNSTON,

Wife of Thomas L Johnston, died on Sunday morning, November 29th, very suddenly. She had been in her usual health until Saturday night about six o'clock, when she was suddenly taken with a sickness which ended her earthly career in a few hours.

Mrs Johnston was about 63 years of age. She was born in the county of Fermanaugh, Ireland, and was baptized and confirmed in the Episcopal church of Adram See in Ireland. Forty-eight years ago she married Mr Thos. L Johnston, and six months after came to Mercer county Illinois, where she resided until her death. Eleven children were born to this union, five are living and six dead.

Mrs Johnston was an earnest Christian woman, devoted to her family and friends. In her home she exemplified in her life what a Christian woman should, and all who knew her felt that indeed she was a "mother in Israel." Her devotion to the church of her youth knew no bounds, for daily she carried it in her heart, and by work, prayers and gifts aided its advancement.

We shall miss her, but we have the sweet assurance that she is at rest and we shall see her again in a better world.

The funeral services were held at the residence Monday afternoon and were largely attended by the friends and relatives, after which the remains were interred in the Reynolds cemetery. PASTOR.
