Having been deaf since Christmas, he could not understand what was said, yet he asked to have prayer when his mind was bright, saying he could not hear but Jesus could. He had a longing desire to depart. In his last moments he said, "All is well," and waving his arms saying, "Farewell." We miss him, knowing our loss is his eternal gain. We would say, "Thy will of the Lord be done." He selected the hymn

"Oh Land of rest for thee I sigh
When will the moment come
When I can lay my armor by
And dwell with Christ at Home."

Eshleman. - Elizabeth (Lesher) Eshleman, wife of Christian H. Eshleman near Hagerstown, Md., was born in Franklin Co., Pa., Jan. 20, 1859; died Aug. 12, 1917; aged 58 y. 6 m. 22 d.

She united with the Mennonite Church in her youth and remained a faithful member until the Savior called her home, never complaining of her affliction, always patient, being fully resigned to the Lord's will. She was always present at church whenever health permitted. Now her place is vacant. She cannot come to us, but we can go to her, if we are true and faithful. She leaves to mourn her departure a sorrowing husband, 3 sons, 2 daughters, 4 grandchildren, 6 brothers and 1 sister. Funeral services were held Aug. 15 at the Paradise Church by Henry Baer and Daniel Strite. Text, Rev. 7:13-17, selected by the family because it was her favorite text.

Here thy toils and cares are o,er,
Pain and sickness, death and sorrow,
Never can distress thee more."

Sept. 18, 1884, he was married to Effie Sanford. This union was blessed with six children. While his health had never been very robust, he was sufficiently strong to do an ordinary day's work and carry on his business on the farm. But a year ago his health began to fail until a few months ago he sought specialists, advice. His disease was pronounced cancer of the stomach. He kept on sinking until in the morning of Aug. 21 he passed peacefully away. The Lord prospered him in business, and his generous-hearted nature moved him to extend a helping hand to those in need. From early manhood he took an active part in the affairs of life. Though of decided convictions, religiously, his interest in this world kept him from acting upon his convictions as he should, and he neglected the one thing needful. But as the approaching end drew nigh his convictions deepened, he saw the vanity of life even though full of deeds from a moral viewpoint, and he turned to the Lord. He and his companion were baptized and received into the Mennonite Church a few weeks before he died. He expressed regret that he had wasted his life in that most of it was spent in living for this world only, but he rejoiced in the saving grace of a merciful Savior and expressed himself fully resigned and ready to go. He is survived by a sorrowing widow, 2 sons, 4 daughters, 4 grandchildren and a large community of friends mourn his departure and unite in their sympathies with the bereft family.

His seat in church was seldom empty when health permitted. He was always willing to lend a helping hand wherever possible. As no children were born to them they generously adopted three, John Neeb, Sam Zehr, and Margaret Pantz, wife of Charles Hoff, with whom he had made his home the last two years and where he was tenderly cared for during his last illness of sixteen and a half weeks of *appoplexy.
