A short funeral service was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clint TAYLOR west of town this morning for Mrs. G. W. SMITHSON, mother of Mrs. TAYLOR. Rev. A. ROBERTSON preached the sermon, and Mrs. ROBERTSON and Miss Beulah SMITH sang.

Eliza Jane FRASER (sic) was born in Ohio June 19, 1849. When five years of age she with her parents moved to Linden, Iowa which became the family home. She was married when 17 years of age to George Wesley SMITHSON, who prededes her in death, passing away eight years ago this coming August. Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. SMITHSON: Ina Zella, who died in infancy; Frank Leslie, living in St. Joe; Mo., Mrs. Ophie TAYLOR of Centerville; Mrs. Will TROTTER of Afton, Ia.; Mrs. DEATHERAGE, deceased; Bird of Falls City, Nebr; Dallas L., Mount Ayr, Iowa; W. T. of St. Joe, Mo.

Mrs. SMITHSON united with the Baptist church of Mt. Ayr forty-four years ago and has been a faithful member of that church ever since. For the past two and one-half years she has been helpless and dependent as a result of a paralytic stroke. On Wednesday of last week Mrs. TAYLOR brought her here [Falls City, Nebraska] in the expectation of her remaining with her for some time, but on Friday her heavenly Father called her to her eternal home. The remains were taken to Mt. Ayr, the old home, where she will be laid to rest beside her husband. The six surviving children will be present for the burial services.
