The death monster that visits our sweet homes and gets its prey, crept to the home of Isaac Powers and claimed for its victim his beloved wife, Mary Ellen. Aunt Mary lingered with that awful pain for eight weeks, which brought her poor body to rack and her soul departed to join that happy band where she suffers no more pain. Aunt Mary was an aged woman, loved and respected by all who knew her. She leaves a husband and six children, Bailey, Martin, Alfred and Mrs. Philetus Campbell, Mrs. Enos Miles and Mrs. Rilda Dodd. We join the great host of friends and relatives in bearing their troubles and loss of Aunt Mary.

MR. RICHARD LANKFORD. Last week, the dark angel, death, again visited our community, plucking therefrom one of our oldest and most beloved citizens. Richard Lankford was born in England, March 30, 1811 and died Nov 1, 1898, aged 87 years, 7 months and 1 day. He emigrated to this country in 1828, when 17 years old and settled in Vanderburgh county, where he was married to Miss Mary Watson in 1832, who, with him, united with the Regular Baptist Church called New Salem. They removed to Warrick county in the spring of 1854 and located on a farm one and one-half miles south of Lynnville, where he resided until his death. Soon after moving to this county he and his wife united with the Regular Baptist church, at this place, by letter, where he filled the office of deacon for a number of years. Their union was blessed with nine children, seven of which preceded him to the grave. His wife, after a peaceful and happy union of sixty-three years, was called to her eternal reward in June 1895. Besides being one of the most upright citizens and Christ-like men, he was also a staunch democrat and never lost an opportunity to uphold and defend his party. His life should be a grand lesson for all and especially the young should follow in the footsteps of Grandpa Lankford and try to make their lives as useful as he has done. He has been in poor health for some time and now he is released from all suffering, pain and care, and is resting with the saints above, there is no doubt. He will be greatly missed, not by his family alone, but by his neighbors, the vicinity at large and by his church, where he was a faithful attendant when his health would permit. He leaves one son, Richard Langford, Jr., of Pleastantville, and Mrs. Sarah E. McMurtry, of this place, besides a number of grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends to mourn his departure. The bereaved relatives have the sympathy of the entire community. The funeral services were conducted by Elder J. W. Crane, at the regular Baptist Church, Nov 2d, 1898, after which the remains were deposited in the Lynnville Cemetery to await the great Resurrection Morn:
A loved one from us has gone, To dwell above the sky; In that blissful, happy home, He never more shall die. He is free from toil and care And all his sufferings here; The love of Jesus he shall share, And never shed a tear. Annie Dilday, Cor.
