TABLE ROCK ARGUS, Dec. 2, 1882.

Mrs. Charles Dort departed this life on last Friday night. She had been ailing for some time, but her friends thought she was not dangerous. She was, however, taken suddenly worse, and passed away before her family were hardly aware of it. Mrs. Dort was unanimously esteemed in the community and her death will be felt as a great loss. The bereaved family have the sympathy of all who know them.


The community has again been called to mingle their tears and their sympathies with those who mourn for the dead. On Friday night the death angel rapped for the first time at Mr. Dort's and claimed the wife and mother. Five children have blessed their home and grown to the years of manhood and womanhood, yet the circle has been unbroken till now. One week ago Mrs. Dort attended quarterly meeting and stood up as a witness for her Savior. Yesterday she was followed to her long resting place by a large concourse of friends. She has been a faithful worker in the M. E. Sabbath school for nearly fourteen years, being at her post and never shrinking from duty, she has led an exemplary life. How consoling must be the language of the text to the loved ones left behind. "Blessed from henceforth, yea saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors and their works follow them." And then comes the thought how easy for one to die in the Lord; "Yea, and their works do follow them." But who can fill a mother's place? It seems to us that of all the ties that are broken, the hardest to bear. is the loss of a mother. Next to the love of the Savior comes the mother love, pure and unselfish, untiring devotion, the life and happiness of the way ward child. May the love of this angel mother be a beacon light to her afflicted family and may they be re-united in the kingdom above.
