Funeral of Mrs. Baugh.

The funeral of Mrs. Susie Baugh took place last Thursday afternoon from the Methodist church. A large concourse of friend of the family were present to pay their last respects to the memory of the deceased. Dr. Armstrong conducted the services, paying a beautiful tribute to the Christian virtues of Mrs. Baugh. The service was simple and touching, and many were the outpourings of sorrowing ones. It indeed was an affecting scene to witness the sadness and sorrow of riven hearts.
The broken hearted husband and motherless little boy have the love and sympathy
of many friends in their great loss.
The Sun offers condolence to the bereaved in their deep sorrow.
A more extended notice will appear later in the columns of The Sun.

Tribute to Mrs. R. L. Baugh.

Mrs. R. L. Baugh, nee Miss Susie McLemore, was born in LaFayette, Ala., July 24, 1858, and died in Augusta, Ga., February 22, 1898.
She joined the M. E. Church South in LaFayette, Ala., in 1872, and continued a consistent and faithful member until her death.
On the 21st of January 1888, she was happily married to Mr. R. L. Baugh, and shared with him the joys and sorrows of life ‘till her sun went down at noon.
In many respects, Mrs. Baugh was an ideal character. In her girlhood and young womanhood she was as sunshine in the paternal home, and as an ornament in the circles of society in which she moved. Her gentle and lovable disposition won for her many friends, and the constancy and beauty of her many virtues held them with increasing fidelity and admiration while she lived; and, now that she has passed from these scenes and friends who can know her no more forever, yet she lives enshrined in their hearts as a pleasing memory, a benediction.
The results of every life may be measure by its influence for good. If this is true, then hers must have been rich in ultimate results; for every life touched by hers was made better and purer.
It was only her family and intimate friends that knew her real worth; for her shrinking modesty and humble estimate of herself, oft times caused her to say, after deeds of charity and words of cheer and comfort, "see thou tell no man."
When her pew was vacant at the services of the sanctuary, and the world know not why, yet she did, for the matter had been settled by the supplicant on her knees and her course sanctioned by the Savior. She had just and intelligent appreciation and understanding of religious duties and obligations, and hence never allowed one to entrench upon another.
But how beautiful soever her life might have been, as it was seen in society, or as it shone in the ancestral home, it was around her own fireside, where the fond trio, husband and wife and little boy, smiled and dreamed in each others love, that it reached the zenith of its brightness.
It is sad to see the bright and happy presence of wife and mother taken from such a home, but God knows best and we can only say, "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."
And to the bereaved ones we say, "She is not dead but sleepeth," and in that bright and beautiful morning they may meet again and reign with her in glory.
