Death of Mrs. Monk

    Mrs. J. W. Monk died at the Canyon hospital Saturday evening. Some weeks ago she was severely scalded from boiling water at her home in Middleton. She was working about the stove and fainting she came into contact with a kettle on the stove, which upset, throwing the contents all over her. She was brought to the Canyon hospital, which is conducted by her daughter, Mrs. Spurgin.
    The funeral of Mrs. Sarah Monk, wife of A. W. Monk, was held at the Baptist church in Caldwell, Monday afternoon at two-thirty o'clock. On the platform were W. M. Ewing, B. W. Rice and George R. Varney, representing the local ministers, and C. R. L. Vawter and F. R. Brotherton of the Vawter Evangelistic Company. The large choir was composed of the representatives of the various choirs of the city, and the music was exceptionally sweet and tender. Mr. Brotherton, the soloist of the evangelistic company, sang touchingly, and Mrs. Case comforted all hearts with her triumphant song. Mr. Varney and Mr. Ewing made brief remarks, appropriate to the occasion, and Mr. Vawter offered a sympathetic prayer. The floral pieces were many and beautiful, and the whole service was a beautiful one. A long line of autos conveyed the relatives and friends to Canyon cemetery, where the body was laid to rest, to await the resurrection morn.
    This is the second bereavement that has visited this home within a week, Mrs. Monk's great-granddaughter, Mary Elizabeth Vrooman, a remarkably sweet baby of three years of age having been buried only the Wednesday before, the two services being strikingly similar, except for the age of the individuals called home.
    The aged husband, Mr. A. W. Monk, the son. Will Monk, formerly county treasurer, the daughters, the best known to us being the ministering angel at the Canyon hospital, Mrs. S. L. Spurgin, the granddaughter and mother, Mrs. Lela Vrooman, and the other relatives will have the sympathy and prayers of all who know them.
