Died: In Manchester, on the 20th - 30th of June, EDWARD ALLEN PERKINS, in the Meridian of life. He has left an aged mother, a wife and two children to lament their loss. He had lately entertained a home of having passed from death into life, and made profession of his belief in the divine Redeemer. He went out of the world rejoicing in God, and in home of a glorious immortality, through the merits of a crucified savior. Something remarkable took place with respect to this man, the night before he was taken sick he dreamed that he should soon be taken sick with the billions fever, and should consume and died the ninth day. When he was taken he told his wife of his assurance that he should die; she asked him if she should send for the doctor, he told her he had no desire for it, for no medical aid could save him from death. He was however attended immediately, but to no effect; he died as his dream predicted. On the 8th day he asked how long he had lain sick, and being informed that it was the eighth day, he blessed God, and exulted in the idea of dying the next day, which really took place. Calm and collected in his mind he lay, Till Heaven's appointment made him quit the clay; Then blest his maker, and resigned to death, Serenely praised away his vital breath.

her lips, but, with Christian patience and resignation she awaited her
summons, being ready to go and having full faith that a crown of
immortality was awaiting her in the world beyond. She passed away very
peacefully the hand of death falling upon her gently. She was 28 years of
age, April 22nd, last. Her remains were taken to Strafford for interment,

last. His sickness was not of long duration, yet his general health had
been failing for several years. In his death Pownal has lost one of its
most highly respected citizens and his memory will they so cherish.
