Slowly the quivering breath fluttered over the pale lips, a sigh echoed in the hearts of all, and one more soul was borne away and is at rest.

"He giveth beloved sleep."

Mrs. Mildred Muse, surrounded by her children, passed into that deep sleep on Sunday morning, and yesterday afternoon was laid to rest, in Springdale Cemetery. At rest, after a life of Christian endeavor; a living friend and a devoted mother; one whose life had its shadows, but whose sunny disposition, brave heart and kindly deeds will cause her to be missed by the entire community.

Where sickness and poverty were to be found, there she found her way, and with a cheery, helpful word and a generous hand, she did the work of her Master.

Tender, loving hands robed her for her last home, and after an impressive ceremony by Dr. Cochran, of the Methodist Church, the solemn train moved toward "God's Acre."

Our sympathies are extended to the entire family--to the brothers and sisters, who will miss her love and kindly sympathy; to the friends whom she loved and served, and to the church of her choice.
