We enjoyed a pleasant visit last
Saturday from Charles A. Scott ,
K. S. A. C. , 1901 , now in the U.
S. forest service. He had been
out to the Cherry county forest re
serve arid went up to Cody from
here. Mr. Scott is a pleasing
young man to meet and is a bright
young man. His former home
was nejir Westmoreland , Kan.
McLean and wife are
building a fine cement block house

dence. It is 2ix26 on the inside
and story and a half high. The
carpenters are finishing the house
now and 'twill probably be the
best dwelling of its size in town.
The inside will be finished up with
good material and will have mod

Mrs. Rebecca S. Holsclaw died
at the home of her daughter , Mrs.
M. E. Jeffers , about a mile west
of this city , November 4 , 1905 ,
and was laid to rest in the ceme
tery west of town Nov. G. The
funeral services were held in the
Methodist church , conducted by
the pastor , Royal D. Waterman.
At the close of the service Mrs.
Morey made a few remarks com
memorative of the faithfulness of
the deceased as a member of the
W. C. T. U. The members of
that society attended the funeral
in a body.
Mrs. Rebecca S. Holsclaw was
the tenth child born to Judge Dav
idand Mrs. Rebecca Conyer in
Dearborn county , Ind. , Nov. 23 ,
1829 , and hence lacked only nine
teen days of her seventy-sixth
birthday at the time of her death.
She was married to Rev. S. W.
Holsclaw , Dec. 27 , 1819 , and
moved to Jennings county , Ind. ,
where she lived until the spring of
1851 , and then moved to Monroe
county , Iowa , remaining there un
til April , 1886 , when the family
came to Valentine , Neb. , where
she has since resided , except three
years that she spent in the par
sonage at Springview. She was
the mother of seven sons and a
daughter. All her children are
living except the eldest son. There
are forty-four grand children and
six great-grand children , and
counting seven grand children by
marriage the whole number of her
family was seventy-two. She was
converted in her sixteenth year
and has been a faithful member of
the church all these years. Her
home was always the home of her
pastors. She greatly assisted her
husband in the building of six
churches , soliciting and collecting
more than § 100 for the old church
in Valentine. She also helped to
build up sixteen Methodist so
cieties in Iowa and Nebraska. She
was a faithful wife , a good mother ,
and a friend of all that was good.
When her companion and co-
laborer of these many years on
last Thursday broke into tears ,
she said , "don't cry , but pray the
Lord for sustaining grace. " Then !
she exhorted him , "don't give up
the faith , don't give up the faith. "
She said all was well with her
soul. She is not dead but gone to
be with God and the loved ones
Mrs. Holsclaw's death resulted
after several weeks of intense suf
fering from injuries received in a
fall from a buggy. She is mourn
ed by all and the family have the
sympathy of the entire community.
Kiss me. but do not weep , beloved ;
. rather , bless . '
That made so bright all the time
Tlie path we together trod ;
And doubt not that I love thee still ,
Wherever I maybe ,
That as in } ife , each throb that bjats
Is tru-j as steel to thee ;
And think that just beyond the veil.
Within another home.
With love and fdith that ne'er shall lail ,
I'llut for thee to come.
IX MEMORY OK SISTKR HOLSCLAW.
Dp.-sr husband , do not grieve for me ,
The time will not be long ,
That you and I will meet agaja '
Around the Heaven'y ' throne ,
Dear children , do not mourn.
For mother's gone above ,
Has gone to be an angel
Where all is peace and love.
She is not dead but sleeping ,
To rise on that glorious morn ,
Where each one there pan meet her ,
If the blest Lord's will is d one.
It is hard to part with mother ,
But harder for father still ,
The dear one through li'e's bitter sorrow
was a comfort and plea ure to him.
But Mother's gone to EIea ? a ,
To wait your coining there ;
She will meet you on that happy shore
face that is beaming fair.
