DEATH OF MISS LYDIA ALLEN
"Death loves a shining mark." Never had this quotation seemed more replete with truth than when applied to that lovely young lady, Miss Lydia Allen, of South Montrose, whose death was announced Monday morning, Feb. 24.
Possessing all the virtues which go to make up a noble womanhood and practicing them, her example to every young person was worthy of emulation. She will be sadly missed in the Sabbath School and Young Peoples' Society where she was an earnest worker.
At one time during her brief illness she remared "I'm going - the gates of Heaven are open." She entreated her friends to meet her there.
She was a member of the M.E. Chruch. The funeral services were attended at the church Tuesday, Feb. 25, Rev. J.N. Lee preaching from Isaiah 3 chap., 10th verse. The pall bearers were Messrs. Harry and Bert Bunnell, Fred Wells, Perry Calph, Edwin Sloat and Reuben Wells.
