In early life she was in delicate health but it steadily improved as she grew older. As a stepmother, she filled that difficult position to the letter, as a true motber, neither she nor my children knew any difference and never in life have I known such devotion between sisters as shown with Maggie and Lizzie. Mrs. Jennie Hearne died of dysentery, July 28, 1898, after a short illness, and was buried at Lexington, Ky.

HEARNE. -- Sister Jennie, wife of W. T. Hearne, died at her home in Independence, Mo., July 28, 1898.
A year ago she had a paralytic stroke, and was never entirely well afterward. But her last sickness was only two and a half weeks duration. She had every advantage that medical skill and attentive nursing could give; but it was seen almost from the first that recovery was impassible. She last attended service on Sunday night July 10, and heard a sermon by Bro. T. L. West. She was married thirty-three years ago to Bro. W. T. Hearne of Lexington, Ky. She had been a consistent member of the Baptist church for many years. first in Kentucky, and later in Lee’s Summit, and last in Independence, Mo. She leaves a husband and one son, Frank B. Hearne. Her daughter Lizzie, died a few years ago in young womanhood, and now sleeps beside her mother in the cemetery of Lexington, Ky. Sister Hearne was an active, earnest, Christian, and her loss is deeply felt by. the church. F. W. HOUCHENS, Pastor.
Lizzie, only daughter of William T. and Jennie (Barkley) Hearne, born in Woodford Co., Ky., Sept. 13, 1869, died Sept. 1, 1893. All that I said of her sister Nannie can well be said of Lizzie; indeed, she seemed to have been her counterpart in all respects; she was the light and joy of our household and of all who came in contact with her. She was educated at Baird College, Clinton, Mo., and while there professed religion and united with Baptist church, being baptized by Rev, M. E. Broaddus, then pastor of the church there. Her life ever exemplified the religion of the Master, and I will only insert the notices of her death, in the local papers. Independence Daily Sentinel, Sept. 1, 1893:
