DARROW- At Grand Rapids oa the 16tli uit., Mrs. Sarah Jewett, wife of Horton H. Darrow Ksq., aged twenty-nine years. McMASTER- On Tuesday morning, December 25, in the fifty-fifth year of her age, Mary Bishop McMaster, wife of James D. McMaster, and sister of Mrs. L. D. Hale, oí' tbis city. Mrs. McMaster was born in Avon, Livingston Coiinty, New York, from which place she removed with her husband in 1850 to ruake a new homê"in our midst, settlingon a farm about two miles east of the city. Eminently social in her nature, kindly affectioned towards all, the home she adorned was soon known to many as one of friendship and generous hospitality. Very many who read these words will recall to mina the cheerful manner in which she ajways welcomed theni under tuat bospitable roof. About ten years ago, by an accident, she received a severe injury to her right arm, which developed into an incurable disease, and caused continual and at times intense suifering. .She boru her aflliction with marked patience and ehcerfulness and a fortitude seldom equaled. No effiirt of the skilied physician and surgeon could avail a cure, and all the tender care and attention of her husband, devoted sister, and friends, could only alleviate her suöerings, not stay the progress of the disease. In the early morning of Christmas day her Christian Bjiirit passed away and her body was at rest. Uniting in eaily Ufe with the church of her choicc, her faith was not dimmed by disease, or her eonfidencc shaken in its holy teachings by her sufferiugs. Her funeral from her late residence, with the beautil'ul aud impressive service of the church, was attended by many sorrowing friends and neighbors, who will liold in tender aud affectionate remembrauce the true friend, the kind and generous netghbor who has passed beyond the "earthïy vale."
