      HAD HELD MANY CHARGES IN THIS PART OF THE STATE

      Death Comes to Rev. John Nelson Sackett, of Clifton Springs.

      Clifton Springs, Oct. 6.--The death of Rev. John Nelson Sackett occurred at his home on Pleasant street, Clifton Springs, on Sunday evening. Mr. Sackett was born July 15, 1847 at Hopewell Center, a son of Caleb and Celinda (sic) Thatcher Sackett. He was a retired Methodist minister. His first charge was at Big Flats, N. Y. From there he went to Harrison. Pa., and from there was sent to Delphi, N. Y. While at Delphi, he was married to Miss Lucy Kinne, of Ovid, on August 16, 1876.

      Mr. Sackett's next pastorate was at Manoa, and from there he was sent to Logan. He next had charge of the churches at Ludlowville, Lansingville, Branchport and Vanettonville, where his mother had made her home with him for some time, was taken ill and was helpless for over six years. Mr. Sackett was out of the work for eight years at this time on account of poor health. When he resumed his duties, be was sent to Milo and from there to Bellona where he had the grippe and was obliged to give up the work for three years. He spent a year and a half of this lime in California and a winter in Florida.

      His next and last charge was at Port Gibson five miles from this village, and while there, being in ill health, he purchased the home in Pleasant street, in this village. It was four years ago this month that they moved to this village.

      In the death of Mr, Sackett, Clifton Springs has lost a good citizen. He had made many friends during his life here and had many friends throughout the state. He was a friend to the old and young and his cheery greetings will be missed by those who were accustomed to meet him frequently.

      Mr. Sackett leaves, besides his wife, two half-brothers, one living in Allegany county, N. Y., and the other in Kansas.

      The funeral will be held from the Methodist Episcopal Church in this village on Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The body will be brought to the church at 12 o'clock so that his friends may view the remains. Rev. DeWitt S. Hooker, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Canandaigua and a former pastor of the Clifton Springs church, will officiate. The interment will be made in the cemetery at Ovid.

      JOHN N. SACKETT.

      Before the session of the Central New York Conference reached its close, one of its members received his appointment from the "Bishop of Souls." John Nelson Sackett departed this life Sabbath evening, October 5, 1913, from his home at Clifton Springs. He was a son of Caleb and Celinda Thatcher Sackett, born July 15. 1847, at Hopewell Center, N. Y.

      He early gave his heart to God and his life onward was controlled by that choice.

      Soon after his entrance as a student into the Seminary, of which Rev. J. Easter was the Principal, he asked if there would be objection to an evening half-hour prayer meeting in the hall for the young men. He received a prompt, glad permission and became a moral and religious power among the students, so that it used to be said, ?Perhaps the young man is doing his life-work here."

      He received his license to preach from Rev. Thomas Toucey in 1872, and in due course was ordained deacon by Bishop Jane, in 1875, and elder by Bishop Foster in 1877.

      1n 1876 he married Miss Lucy Kinne, a helper for and in his work. In the succession of appointments Logan, Ludlowville. Branchport, Van Etten, Milo Center, Bellona and Port Gibson were included, but there were intervals of enforced retirement from the pastorate--the illness of his mother, to whom, in her helplessness for six years, he gave devoted service. The resulting prostration sent him to California for eighteen months and also to Florida, and a subsequent attack of grippe held him for three years. Testimonials from Presiding Elders and other members of his Conference that he was "an excellent preacher," ?a clear and forceful preacher," ?a true and faithful minister of the Gospel," ?a genuinely good man," were not needed as he went to distant places, for the quality of the man was soon discovered and his help sought even beyond his power to give.

      In the four years of his retirement at Clifton Springs he won many friends and was useful to old and young, especially along temperance and Sunday School lilies.

      The funeral services were conducted by D. W. S. Hooker, L. H. Pearce, representing the Conference, and the local Methodist and Baptist pastors assisting. John Easter sent the tribute: "For loyalty to his God and Saviour expressed in purity of motive, in clear conviction and in dominating purpose and action. i have rarely known his equal." He leaves his wife and two half-brothers. The interment was at Ovid.

      J. E. D. EASTER.

      REED.--Mrs. Salnda Reed, mother of the Rev, J.N. Sackett, of the Central New York Conference, died at the home of her son in Ovid, N.Y., Oct. 10, 1897. She was born Jan. 8, 1818, six miles east of Canandaigua, N.Y., where he father, Stephen Thatcher, settled in 1795. In 1833, under the labors of the Revs. Zina J. Buck and Gideon Osborn, she, with her father and brother, was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, being baptized by the Rev. Thomas Burch. Jan. 2, 1845, she was married to Caleb Sackett, who died April 30, 1853. She was married a second time, Aug. 25, 1858, to John A. Reed, and by his death again became a widow Aug. 25, 1877, after which time her home was with her son. The sickness, resulting in her death, originated in a stroke of apoplexy received July 26, 1891. From that time to her death she was a great sufferer and had daily opportunity for testing the grace of God as a support for the soul in need. She trusted, and it sustained her to the end. Her condition was such that six years ago her son retired from the active ministry that he might give undivided attention to her needs. In the days of the slavery agitation she was in ardent sympathy with whatever tended to promote the glory of God, and at length gladly gave her son to the work of the ministry. In health she did what she could to advance the Savior's kingdom, and in sickness the cause of Christ always had her prayers and best wishes.
