      In Memoriam.
      Died - In Ventura Cal., June 1, 1895, David A.
      Sackett, aged 74 years, 2 months and 2? days.
      "not dead but gone before"

      David A. Sackett was born in Butler Co.,
      Ohio, March 6, 1831; died in Ventrua Co.,
      Cal, June 1, 1805[sic]. In 1850 he crossed the
      plains with an ox team, first settling in
      Oregon, removing from there to Sonoma
      Co., Cal. For many years he resided in
      the northern part of the State, where his
      six children, by a former wife, reside.
      About five years ago he came to Ventura
      county with his wife and children -- H. P.
      Sackett and Hattie, now the wife of F. P.
      Ward. The second son, George L. Sackett,
      joining them here the year after.

      The family is most highly respected and
      in the death of Mr. Sackett the town of
      Ventrua loses a good citizen; the neighbor-
      hood in which he lived loses a true friend;
      the church of which he was a member, an
      earnest christian worker and his family
      a loving husband and devoted father.

      He has been suffering for many months
      and several weeks ago was removed from
      his home on the Avenue to the home of his
      daughter, Mrs. Ward.

      Loving hands did all in their power to
      alleviate his suffering. And the bereaved
      family are left with no regret for we
      know that they did not leave one little act
      of kindness undone. The faithful wife who
      has shared his every joy and sorrow for
      the past thirty-five years, the sons and the
      son-in-law, were all untiring in their loving
      efforts to soothe and cheer him, and were
      all present when he passed away.

      At the early age of ten years, Mr. Sackett
      became an earnest christian. The patience
      and umcomplaining fortitude shown by
      him during his long suffering will remain
      as a shining example before his family and
      friends. And oh! how they will treasure
      those last words of kind administration
      from him who realized that the battle of
      this life was almost fiinished and that soon
      he would enjoy the glories of the life which
      is beyond. He did not fear to die. Nay!
      he prayed that it might soon come, for he
      was firm in his belief of a glorious awaken-
      ing. An awakening in the presence of his
      God and the angels. And as the loved
      ones stood around his bed Saturday even-
      ing, watched the last struggle and imparted
      the farewell kiss, they could not but realize
      how great was his gain. For now the
      suffering and pain was all over and the
      dear father was "asleep in Jesus," that
      tranquil rest for which he had so often
      prayed.
      "How beautiful is sleep!
      The sleep that Christians know
      Yet mourners! cease your woe,
      While soft upon his Savier's breast
      The righteous sinks to endless rest."

      The funeral services were held in the
      M. E. Church, by Rev. A. A. Graves. The
      text was the same as was used at the
      funeral of Mr. Sackett's mother: Rom. V:
      10,11. "We shall be saved by his life. And
      not only so, but we also joy in God, through
      our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have
      now received the atonement." And the
      same hymns were sung. Rev. Uren of
      Hueneme also made some very appropriate
      remarks.

      The deceased was an honored member of
      the Petaluma Lodge, I. O. O. F., for thirty
      years, and as the long procession moved
      from the church, it was led by the mem-
      bers of the order in Ventura, who were
      paying their last tribute of respect to the
      "dear brother" who now waits at the bar of
      Heaven's High Chancery, to receive his
      reward.
      - A Friend.
