DIED, at his home hear Whittier, Linn County, Iowa, Fifth Month 6th, 1899, in the seventy-second year of his age, MICAJAH EMMONS, a member and elder of Springville Monthly Meeting. He was a firm believer in the doctrines of the Society of Friends, and endeavored to maintain them as far as it seemed to be in his power in their ancient beauty and purity. His sickness was of about two weeks duration in which he suffered much with oppression of breathing, but was very patient and submissive in taking whatever was offered for his relief. He was a great lover of flowers and several were sent to him by his friends. At one time when some were shown to him He said, "Oh, the dear hearts, but my mind is now beyond flowers. I don't know how the disease may terminate with me, but I quietly hope and patiently wait." He was very affectionate towards all and we doubt not his purified spirit is now at rest with its Maker.
