MRS. TRENT DEAD

Just as the holy Sabbath was coming to a close on the 31st of March, the well completed life of Mrs. P.G. Trent Sr. was ended and her spirit sought the sabbath clime of unending day. She had suffered much during an illness of two weeks so the more sweet did her spirit find the "rest remaineth to the people of god."

Mrs. Trent had filled well her sphere as companion, mother and friend. She was for long years a member of the Methodist church. Her place in the home and the hearts of her loved ones cannot be filled; they can only bide the shadows till the walls of that city appear, whose inhabitants never grow old and where death cannot come.

Very appropriate was the services conducted by Rev. Geo. L. Jenkins at Dr. Trent's residence Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The interment was in the city cemetery.

SAD NOTE FROM DR. TRENT

Dear Leader,
Frequently I have written something for your columns but now comes the saddest announcement of my life. On the 19th day of March my dear wife was taken violently ill and in spite of all the assistance that could be given me by my son and Dr. T.H. Bonner, of Hickory Flat, in the treatment of her case, she fell asleep a little before 6 o'clock p.m., March 31st. But to her this is blessed sleep, for she fell asleep in jesus. Just before this her suffering was fearful to behold but now her ecstacy is sublime. She said how good it was to have jesus present with one on the bed of affliction.

Her suffering was paroxysmal and finally on her last day when she saw one of these coming on again she said "jesus take these things away" and a moment later she smiled and said "jesus took them away." After this the end came in a few hours without any further manifestation of pain. But when that sweet spirit took its flight the light went out of my life, my home is dark, and I have nothing left me but the christian religion. But in exchange for this I
would not give the world for it is the medium by which I am now steadfastly expecting to be wafted to the skies and finally reunited with her who while here was the inspiration of my life.

Let me acknowledge my most profound obligations and tender the gratitude of a poor, lonely, broken and bleeding heart to my many friends who came so nobly to my relief in this the darkest hour of my life. May the lord give them
their reward.
P.G. Trent, Sr.
