In Sebec, Piscataquis County, August 15th of consumption, Mrs. Sarah Jane,
wife of John W. Courier, and daughter of William Taylor, aged 24 year, 1 month. The
deceased was a devoted wife and tender mother. In those bereaved hearts that knew
her best will she be longest remembered and her loss most deeply deplored. She died
in the midst of life, with husband an children around her. How will those children miss
a mother's thoughtful care, and how they will need her counsels to guide and direct
them through the years of youth; but her voice is silent, her race is run, and the heart
that shed a peaceful light of love and sympathy on all who come within its influence,
can thrill no more with earthly joys or sorrows. A husband and three children are left
to feel that death has made a void in their number which can never be filled. She was
patient in her sufferings; showed an interest in the cause of Christ and a love to God's
people. Religion presented to her a bright prospect in the future and enable her to say
it looks bright beyond the grave. Albert Platt.
In Buxton, 23rd ult., Mr. Jotham Lewis, formerly of Cornish, aged 74 years,
Father thou hast gone before us
and thy saintly soul has flown,
Where tears are wip'd from ev'ry eye,
and sorrow is unknown;
But the spirit soars away
Among the faithful blest,
May each like thee depart in peace,
To be a glorious guest.
