Laid in Marble Forest

Last Thursday Mrs. N. H. Green, aged 59 years, after a brave battle for life, sank into the last long sleep that ends the journey. During much of her illness the noble woman suffered pain unspeakable and death's summons to the final great reward seemed merciful. All that human skill could accomplish, all that tender and loving hands could bestow by a devoted husband, daughter and son, was of no avial for the tired and wary spirit of mother took its flight to join that vast multitude gone before. Saturday afternoon, just as the funeral procession, emgered from the spacious home on the hill, the beautiful warm sunlight came through the overhanging clouds and a bright sun shone throughout the entire ceremonies, which lasted two hours. All business was suspened while the funeral was in progress.

The First Congregational church was crowed beyond it doors, while many of the large concourse of people remained standing until the close of the sad obsequies. Rev. Frank E. Whitham of Wallace, Idaho, former pastor and a dear friend of the family, delivered a touching eulogy particularly appropriate for the solem occasion. A splendid quartet, Mrs. W. H Martin, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Staser and Mrs. Fred Weiland, rendered the choic selection in sacred music, Miss Eleanor Staser presiding at the chapel organ.

The elaborate floral offering in tribute were in deepest profusion and banked at the church altar. Among contributors outside of the family bringing wreath and garland of sweet roses and may other frangrant flowers were the Order of the Easter Star Lodge, the Lady Maccabee and others. Entwined in a large centerpiece of purple letters appeared the name "Mother" and on the slive plate of the hansom casket were the words, "At Rest."

Sunday morning the remains were conveyed from the home by O. R. Haight, the undertaker, in a modern, handsome hearse drawn by two cola black horses driven by Claude A Harris, to the Northern Pacific rail station, and the corpse transported to Spokane, accompanied by Mr. Greene, the husband, Mrs. Mattie Martin, the daughter, Orr H. Greene, the son, the following relatives being in th party: Mrs. W. H. Davenny, Miss Laura Daveny, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Stuart, D. A. and Fred Davenny. Other friends and acquainances in the funeral cortege were Mrs. James G. Bennett, Mrs. Cerita L. Tinnel, Mrs. E. D. Gilson, Miss Anna Olson, W. Harry Martin and Prof. W. J. Sutton.

The selected Masonic pall bearers who acted here and in Spokane were Mayor Fred E. Robbins, Daniel A Scott, R. P. Smith, James Turner, Byron L. Sutton and E. D. Gilson. Interment occurred Sunday at 2. p.m. in the Greenwood cemetery as previously announced and arranged. Beneath a mountain of sweetest and richest flowers, lillies, ferns, violet and hyacinth, lies the silent form of a genial, kind hearted, sympathetic woman, a loss to this vicinity which will be felt for a long time, but great as it is to the community at large, it is nothing as compared to the loss of the husband and orphans.
