Followed Her Husband in One Week's Time.

Mrs. Laura McKewen died Sunday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Howland, near the park. Deceased was 79 years of age.

She and her husband came here last spring to spend some time with their daughter. Their home was in Fremont, Ind. When they left their native State, they little thought that neighter would ever see it again, but to-day both lie buried in a foreign land. They sleep side by side in Elmwood.

Mr. McKewen, as will be remembered, was buried Sunday a week ago. He lived to be 82 eyars of age. His wife, who was 79, survived him a week to the day.

Their long companionship was broken only for a few days. Hand in hand they had journeyed over life's rugged road. One passed over the river, first, as it seemed, to be waiting for the other. With a sweet and happy smile, the aged wife passed away. Death had no sting, no terror. It was a radiant entrance into the realm of glory, where there is no more parting, neighter sadness nor sorrow.

The funeral services were conducted yesterday morning by Rev. J.A. Dorritee in a tender and impressive manner.
