Emiline S. HARRIS, born August 13, 1808, in state of New York, died June 22, 1889, at the home of her daughter Mrs. Rev. A. T. WILKINS, near Lake City, Iowa.

She was converted in 1882 and has been a member of the church for fifty-six years.
The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon, June 23, at the Cottonwood Church.

Sister HARRIS died in great peace having been a consistent Christian. She had triumph in death. She said to her daughter, "the other world is a mystery to some people but to me it is very bright and there is a shining path which leads to glory." She remarked to her son-in-law, 'I am almost home, I shall be so glad when it is all over and I am at rest." Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. E.G.S.
