Mrs. B. F. Reed.
Mrs. 11. F. Reed died at the Congre
gational parsonage last Saturday
morning after an illness of ten days
duration. Her death was due to can
cer of the throat. For some years
past she had been atllicted with a
goitre, which grew so troublesome
that its removal became necessary.
Slic went for this purpose to Mercy
hospital in Chicago and it was during
this operation that the cancer was
discovered. A sec nd operation be
came necessary and she was brought
to town for that purpose, but it be
came apparent at once that she was
beyond human help and she. passed
away ten days after the second opera
tion was performed.
Mrs. Etlle Reed was the oldest
daughter of N. L. I). Smith and wife
and lived in this section of Nebraska
nearly all her life. She was born in
Wisconsin, August lft, 1800, and the
family removed here.ainong the earlier
settlers. She was the oldest of a
family of eight children, all of whom
remain with the parents to mourn her
death. In October 18. 1800, she was
married to II. F. Reed and three
children, two boys and a girl were
born of the union. The husband and
children also remain to mourn the
loss of a wife and mother.
Mrs. Reed was an earnest christian,
a member of the Congregational church
at Indian creek, where nor services
will be greatly missed by the members
of that organization. The funeral
took place from the Congregational
church on Sunday afternoon, Rev.
Rice preachingitho sermon, Re,y. Hunvy
mel and Austin olllciatlng. Inter
ment in the Red Cloud cemetery.

1822, at Perry villi, Indiana. Married

He was a member of the United
Hrethren church. In 188ft he with his
family removed to Red Cloud, after
which he united with the Christian,
church and has always been a faith
ful, earnest christian. He was a very
quiet unassuming man, living a re
tired life, but with constant an abid
ing trust in God, through a diligent
reading and study of the Uible, which
was his daily companion and guide.
Since the death of his aged and faith
ful wife some three years ago, he has
made his home with his daughter,
Mrs. John Corbett, in Kansas, and also
with his son Levi, in this county, at
whose home he was his death occurred.

al in a body and had charge of the
