Mary WALLACE [AITKEN], daughter of John and Mary WALLACE, was born at Kilbarchan, Scotland, Aug 16, 1813. She was united in marriage with Robt. AITKEN, May 24, '33. And departed this life Dec 18, 1897 at 8 a.m., at Fulton, Indiana, at the age of 84 years 4 months and 2 days. To this union there were born four children: Mary AITKEN RANNELLS, Robt. AITKEN, Jennie AITKEN RANNELLS and Agnes AITKEN WAITE. The husband, Robert Aitken, and the three daughters remain to mourn the loss of the wife and mother. Grandmother Aitken has been a devoted christian for many years, uniting with the Presbyterian church in early life. No clouds were so dark that she could not see bright rays of sunshine, and to aid and comfort others was her greatest pleasure. He life would indicate that she had taken for her life's motto "'tis more blessed to give than to receive." As she lived in life so she passed into death, with a smile on her face wishing and praying for the comfort of those around her. She has gone. God grant that the shining rays that she has strewn along her pathway will enable others to see a brighter home beyond. A GRANDSON.

H. C. SELLERS, formerly of Rochester, returned to Kokomo, today, after attending the funeral of Mrs. AITKEN. (WEDNESDAY)
