      Mrs. Mahetabel Goucher

      Died in Upper Wilmot, Jan. 6th, Mrs. Mahetabel, wife of Mr. William Goucher, aged 63 years. Mrs. G. was the mother of fifteen children. As a parent she was attentive and kind, as a wife, dutiful and affectionate, as a neighbour, pacific and obliging, and as a Christian, devout and spiritual. During the long period of her membership in the Baptist Church of Lower Aylesford and Upper Wilmot, she lived in perfect harmony with all the members, and was beloved and esteemed by them. Her last sickness was of only about a week?s continuance. The Pastor, on visiting her found her, as in former scenes of affliction, cheerfully resigned to the will of God, and steadfast in her reliance on the Rock of her Salvation. When her husband perceived that she was near the close of life, he said to her, ?Do you know that you are dying? Her answer was to this effect: -- ?Is this dying? I had thought it was a dreadful thing to die; but it is very easy. I have no fears, and no distress.? She then repeated the beautiful and appropriate lines of Dr. Watts,
      ?Jesus can make a dying bed
      ?Feel soft as downy pillows are,
      ?While on his breast I lean my head,
      ?And breathe my life out sweetly there.?
      She requested that the whole hymn should be sung at her funeral. Thus peacefully did this valued sister in Christ depart from the scenes of trial on earth, to enter, as we are assured, the mansions of rest in heaven. At her burial a discourse was delivered by the Pastor, to numerous relatives and attached friends, from 1 Cor. xv, 26. ?The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.?
      -- Communicated by Rev. C. Tupper.
