    Near Farina, Ill., March 17, 1885, of a complication of diseases, Asa Stillman Coon.
    He was born in Berlin, N. Y., May 8, 1823, and was therefore nearly 62 years of age at the time of his death. He was the son of Dea. Asa Coon of Berlin. The early part of his life was spent in the neighborhood of his nativity until a number of years after he was married.
    He was married to Eliza M. Green, Feb. 6, 1847. It seems that he was baptized by Eld. Scott before the date of his marriage, but did not join the church, because he thought that church organizations were not necessary. He moved from Berlin to Adams, where he lived about a dozen years. Since that time he has been a resident of Farina. Having lost his wife, he was married to Lizzie Zinn, Oct. 4, 1874. He has had poor health for many years. We entertain a strong hope that he is "safe in the arms of Jesus."
    He was very patient in suffering, and seemed to have no fear of death. He was anxious to go and be at rest. There was a considerable evidence that he looked forward with hope for a joyous hereafter. In arranging for his funeral service, he spoke of that comforting passage in Psa. 23: 4 as a text, and then said, let the pastor make his own selection. How appropriate to the Christian's death is the stanza:
    "Jesus can make the dying bed
    Feel soft as downy pillows are.
    While on his breast I lay my head,
    And breathe my life out sweetly there." W. H. E.
