During a twolvo-year resldonco in
Rod Cloud, wo do not remember of so
painful a duty as the ono wo nro about
ti ' lonicle, in regard to the death of
Mm. Mary K. Tomlinson, esteemed and
btdoved wlfo ef John Tomllnson, Jr.
During tho twelve )oarH monlloned, wo
had known hor nnd hnd a personal ac
quaintance with hor. Sho was a splen
did neighbor, nhvn)s ready and willing
to iiBelst tho sick and distressed, and
gnvo alms to tho poor as gonorously nnd
freoly as hor means would pornilt. Sho
was n tried and truo woman, and mado
homo a pleasant abode. During hor
latter years sho had boon 111 many times,
but with grant fortitude sho withstood
tho pains that tlesh Is holr to, and por.
fcrmod her dut(cs uncomplainingly. It
was only whon hor last illness fastened
its deadly fottors upon hor body that
sho yielded nnd took to her bod, nnd not
thon without a great struggle for the
lifo which was so doar to hor, as it is to
all mortals. During tho month of Jan.
unry, 181U, sho was advisod by her at
attendant physicim that, iu order to
prolong her life, it would bo necessary
to have n vory trying, an woll as sorious
surgical operation porformed. Ilolng of
u bravo disposition sho readily submit
ted, aim n low cinvs iinor ttio samo was
porformod in Chicago. Tho dlsoaso was
of so serious a nature that it was only a
question of timo whon it would end hor
lifo. This sho was fully nwaro of, and,
in tho sovonteon mouths In which sho
boro tho most trying pains that ruck
these mortal bodies, she clung to life
tenaciously, yot ready tc doport at hor
mastor's bidding. At hor sido stood her
faithful husband, who gnvo up position
und monoy to aid and assist hor during
hor prolonged illness; by hor sido day
und night, roady to auswor hor beck nnd
call. Surely no man ovor did more, und
in his groat trials and hardshlps'lie do
served und received tho highest esteem
that a community could givo. Truly
his reward will be gracious in tho future
world. During all of tho weary montliB
that Mrs. Tomlinson wns Blck, sho was
confined to her bed and had
to bo uesistod us carefully as a
nursing babo, and sho was given
the most nttontlvo care by her husband,
who hardly left hor sido during the
vigils of tho night or day. Ono rarely
cornea across such dovotlon us tho enso
On last Monduy, and for a fow days
previous, it was evident thnt dissolution
was near at hand. This sho wob nwaro
of, and in her dying moments she in
formed hor husband that sho was going
to a bettor land, where pain and sorrow
aro no more, and at two o'clock on Mon
day she dopartod to the realms of blisr.
Kind hands prepared tho body for the
last sad rites, and on Tuesday afternoon
tho funeral took place at her late rest
dence, Rov. Futher Harrington, of tho
Catkolio church, conducting the sor
vices. Ho gave words of comfort to tho
borcavod husband and friends, and
pointod to tho christian fortitude of tho
lamented wife as a beacon light for
others to imitate. Aftor tho sorvicos
wero complotod, tho body was prepared
for shipment to Quincy, III., whero sho
was tukon on Wednosday, accompanied
by Mr. Tomlinson. Tho fire dopnrtmont,
of which Mr. Tomlinson is nn honored
mombor and was formorly chiof, uotod
as pall bearers und escort to the train.
The fire boll wns tolled, indicating that,
whilo Mr. Tomlinson had suffered an
irreparable loss, that others sympathized
with htm in his hour of nuliction. It
was a sad death, and ono that touches a
tender chord in the hearts of evory per
son in Red Cloud, nnd thoy naturally
turn sympathizingly toward tho bo
reaved husband, who has Buffored more
than human hoart can toll.
Mrs. Tomlinson was .'10 years, 5
months, nnd 15 days old. She was born
in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland,
April 1, 1850, and como to Amerlcu when
