Lizzie Toone, on the 4th instant at Plum Bayou, Jefferson county, Ark., wife of George W. Toone, formerly of Tulip, Dallas County, Ark,
The fatal malady was an ulcer in the stomach. Her sufferings were long and painful; but she endured her afflictions with Christian fortitude and resignation, and died triumphing in the faith and hope of the gospel.
Her husband and children have our sincere condolence. “We sorrow not as those who have no hope” for ”Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.”
“A few more years shall roll,
A few more seasons come, And we shall be with those who rest,
Asleep within the tomb.
A few more stuggles here,
A few more partings o’er,
A few more toils, a few more tears,
And we shall weep no more.”
