Johnson, Wednesday morning at five o'clock, the sweet spirit of Minnie Johnson Collins winged its flight to the God who gave it. The loving ministrations of relatives and friends, for twelve days, were un- tiring, and her patience through suf- fering was wonderful.

She loved them all, and louder than the waves of death were the songs of the angels. We laid her away in the Marlin cemetery, 'mid the most lovely flow- er gifts of her friends who loved her. • She has lived in Marlin only a few years, but her friends were numbered by the hundreds. She let.ves one son, three broth- ers and two sisters and a host of friends to ,<>oura her loss. May all meet her in the great beyond, where sorrow is no more a...
