Estel Delhomme. Died Jan. 4, 1903, at the home of her parents near Scott. Miss Estelle Delhomme, aged 45 years and 6 months. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Faith in God filled her entire life. To be truthful, benevolent, and charitable may be common virtues, but their lustre is as the brightness of pure gold. Secure in these virtues this lady stood apart from the throng, and contemplating the turmoil of strife and passion from her sheltered spot, and gazing at the patient stars above the madness of all the hurry and worry of this world, came home to her quiet, unselfish life, marred alone in taking leave of her darling old mother and father, her soul was made supremely happy when the last hour came, and she has passed to her eternal reward. Rest in peace, A FRIEND.
