    In Dodge Centre, Minn., July 1, 1899, of heart failure, Mrs. Anna P. Olin, wife of Henry S. Olin.
    She was the daughter of Dea. Wm. G. Crandall, and was born in DeRuyter, N. Y., March 31, 1833. At about twelve years of age she was baptized by Eld. Alexander Campbell and united with the Lincklaen, N. Y., Seventh-day Baptist church. She was a fine student with marked literary tastes and ability, and was graduated at De Ruyter Institute in 1854. When our foreign missions were organized, she had a deep conviction that she ought to offer herself for that work, and this conviction followed her all through life, causing her much sorrow that she failed to make complete the consecration.
    She was married in 1856 to Henry S. Olin, and soon after settled at Trenton, Minn., being one of the first settlers there, and also a constituent of the Seventh-day Baptist church at that place. Having had much previous experience in school teaching, she taught the first school in the Trenton district, the school being held in her house. From thence she moved with her family to Dodge Centre, Minn., uniting with the church at that place. She was the mother of three daughters, also cared for an adopted daughter. Sister Olin was always active in church and benevolent work, a woman of much faith and prayer, and will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends.
    Funeral services were conducted by Pastor H. D. Clarke; sermon from Psa. 116: 15, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” H. D. C.
