Phebe A. Barker
DIED--June 23d--Mrs. Phebe A. Barker of consumption, in the 34th year of her age. For over a year she had been in declining health, and she was endeavoring to be ready to depart and be with Christ. She was a member of M. E. Church for 16 years--an humble, sincere, consistent Christian. "She died in the Lord," and now "sleeps in Jesus." Her husband having voluntered in the service of his country 2 years ago, was absent at the time of her death, but every needed attention was given by warm-hearted friends to the bereaved family, and the absent soldier father, may be assured that his four motherless children shall find friends good and true, who will do what they can to find for them good homes. Let the claims of the orphans upon the friends of Christ and humanity not be neglected, but let all seek to do that which will bring upon them the blessings of the motherless children, and the benedictions of the great Father of us all.

Sydney R. Baxter
Sydney Rice, youngest son of George and Mary F. Baxter, killed at Arkansas Post, Jan. 12th, 1863, in the 20th year of his age. He was born, in Highland Co., Ohio, and came to Illinois in the 15th year of his age. Though left an orphan at an early age, exposed to all the temptations, without the restraints of youth; he was remarkable for innocence and childlike simplicity to the day of his death; while his superior natural talents gave promise of future usefulness.
When the war broke out he felt it his duty to fight for his country. He accordingly enlisted in the 20th Ill. Regiment; but his first experience of a soldier-life was of short duration.
On the way to Missouri he was taken sick. When he arrived at Cape Girardieu he was placed in the hospital at that place. It was then that he first felt the sweet consolation of a Savior's love.
After suffering there for three months, he was brought home as everyone thought to die. But his time was not yet come. After a tedious illness his health was restored.
During all his illness he was never known to murmur. He spoke of it as a blessing; that he had been brought so close to death that he would be better prepared for life or death.
On the 10th of August; his health being entirely restored, he reenlisted, this time in the 127th Ill. Regiment.
He bade his friends good-bye on the 6th of November, and left Chicago for the field on the 9th.
He was in the battle of Vicksburg; and at the battle of Arkansas Post, while moving forward with his company to charge a battery, a shell burst near them, a fraqment of which struck him on the head, killing him instantly. "Even so, Lord, for so it seemeth good in Thy sight."

Mary Ann Bliss
In this place, of Consumption, on Monday, Jan. 30, at the residence of her mother, Mary Ann, youngest daughter of Samuel and Mary A. Bliss, aged 21 years and 9 days. The deceased was amiable, intelligent, and of unusually winning deportment. She bore her long and severe suffering with Christian fortitude, and has, we doubt not, exchanged a world of sorrow for one of eternal happiness. Let this be the consolation of her widowed mother and sorrowing friends.
