At the regular session of the Sabbath school
of the Milesburg Presbyterian church, Sab.
bath morning, April 28, 1895, the following
preamble and resolutions were adopted :
WHEREAS, God, in his all-wise providence,
has called away our dear sister, Miss Laura V.
Bierly, a faithful and earnest member of the
church and Sabbath school ; and although her
life for some months prior to her death had
much of sickness and suffering in it, yet her
radiant spirit rose above these conditions of
the flesh and with great meekness and gentle-
ness she cheerfully acquiesced in God's will,
showing how beatifully her life was hid with
Christ ; and so He giveth Bis beloved sleep ;
Resolved, that we recognize God’s right to
call her from the earthly to the Heavenly
sphere, and as a church and Sabbath school
we feel deeply and keenly the great loss we
have sustained, but we take comfort in the
thought that she has left us a bright example
of love and zeal for God’s house.
Resolved, that we extend our sincere sym-
pathy to the bereaved family and commend
them to God’s loving care, who alone can com:
Resolved, that a copy of these. resolutions be
furnished the family of deceased, that they
be inscribed upon the minutes of the Sabbath
school and published in
WarcHMAN, Centre Magnet, and Gazette.

Samuel Y. Lucas was born Aug. 4, 1825, in
Snow Shoe where he spent most of his life ex-
cept a few years previous to his death, he
lived near Bellefonts, Pa.
He was married to Miss Mary Oswald, Oct.
28,1863, there were born to them two sons
and three daughters. He leaves two brothers,
Jesse and Isaac, two sisters, Mrs. T. Cameron
and Mrs. Joseph Gilliland, two sons, three
daughters, and three grand children to mourn
his loss. Bro. Lucas was a consistent member
of the Methodist church for over twenty-years.
He was first stricken with paralysis on Apr. 7.
1894 from which he never recovered ; but re
mained an invalld for about one year when he
had another stroke, which hastened him to
the spiritual world in a few days. Being con-
scious to the last he recognized all his chil-
dren and grand-children and was able to talk
to them until within 24 hours of his death.
The I. O. O. F. took charge of the funeral
with Mr. Naginey as director, who is an effi-
cient and courteous undertaker escorting the
funeral procession to the P. R. R. depot where
we took the train for Snow Shoe. On the ar.
rival of our train at Snow Shoe we were met
by thel. 0. O. F. and U. A. M. and friends of
Snow Shoe who led the way to the M. E.
church where brief funeral services were
held. Rev.J.C. Young preached a short ser.
mon from Job. 14, 14 “If a man die shall he
live again ?”° Rev. Mr. Jackson, of Snow Shoe,
made a brief, but appropriate address. Then
we proceded three miles farther where in the
quiet mountain cemetery we laid the body of
our dear brother and friend to rest,
Samuel Y. Lucas was a good citizen, a kind
neighbor, true husband, loving father, faithful
as a brother and friend, best of all he was a
Christian. A Friesp.
At a regular meeting of the Snow Shoe city
council No. 274 0. U. A, M., held Apr. 27th,
1895 the following resolutions were adopted
WHEREAS it has pleased Almighty God, in
his all-wise providence, to remove by death
from our Council brother S. Y. Lucas.
Resolved, that we submit to the will of Prov-
idence hoping that our loss will be his eternal
ain and that our charter be draped in mourn-
or thirty days
Resolved that we tender out heart felt sym-
pathy to the bereaved family of the deceased
Resolved that these resolutions be written in
the minutes of the Council and published in
the Democratic WATCHMAN and the Keystone
Gazette and a copy sent to the family of our
Harvey Witherite ;

The one memorial in equatorial Africa in
which the whole civilized world has interest
is pictured in The Century for May. This is
the tree beneath which is buried the heart of
Dr. Livingston, and upon the trunk of which
a record was rudely chiseled by one of the
| great missionary’s native followers. The pho-
.tograph which is reproduced was made by
Mr. E. J. Glave, in the course of an explora.
tion undertaken for The Century magazine.
The tree was found near a deserted village on
the south shore of Lake Bangweolo, and it
towers far above all the surrounding foliage.
The discovery of the exact location of this
shrine is of particular interest in view of the
failure of previous efforts to locate it. Mr.
Glave writes that Mrs, Bruce—the daughter of
Livingstone—and her husband sent out a
tablet com memorative of the explorer’s death,
which the Belgian officers to whom it was con.
signed put up about eight miles from the
tree. Eighteen months before Mr. Glave's
visit, the tablet was carried off by the chief of
a slave caravan,
