    We feel sorry in noting the sad death, on the evening of the 14th Dec., at about 10 o'clock, of Mrs. Elizabeth Teats, beloved wife of Daniel Teets. She was a faithful Christian for many years, and died happy and fully resigned to the will of God. A husband and several married children live to mourn her loss.
