Miss Annie Johnson Flint, aged about 70 years, widely known writer of religious poems and songs, died last evening in Clifton Springs. Miss Flint had been an invalid for 40 years and had made her home for many years with Mrs. Emma J. Comstock, mother of Mrs. Robert W. Brockelbank, of this city, on Teft avenue.

Miss Flint was born in Vineland, N.J., and was left an orphan at six years. She and her sister, Nettie, were adopted and the family moved to Camden where she attended the public schools, later the Trenton Norval school, and taught for three years. She was afflicted with arthritis and five years later was unable to walk. After receiving treatment in Clifton Springs sanitarium she had since remained in the village.

At the age of 9 Miss Flint began to write poems, which have been published in booklet form and distributed all over the world. Among these are "Songs of Faith and Comfort," "Songs by the Way" and "Songs in the Night." Her poems are known for their spiritual teach- . . . fort, "Songs by the Way" and . . . ness and had planned a musical career.
