THE LATE -MRsTURN:ER, NESTON. I THE LATE MRS. TURNER, NESTON. The funeral of Mrs. Turner, wife of the Rev. Canon Turner, vicar of Neston, whose death we recorded last week, took place at the Parish Church, Neston, on Friday afternoon and was an affecting spectacle. Deceased was an honoiary member of the Neston Female Friendly Society, and between 20 and 30 members, attired in deep mourning and bearing the white wands of the society draped with black crape, formed in order as the head of the pro cession. The casquet was covered with floral tributes. The latter, over -40 in number and formed of exquisite blocnis, were in staking contrast to sombre suriouiidmgs and the leafless trees and hedgerows througa which the cortege moved on .ts way to the church. A large number of broughams and ot mourners cn foot followed, every portion ot fee parish being represented, alia: syintxfcs of mourning appeared allajong the route. The parish flag had remained at hall-mast, on the ccurch tower, and as the cortege came nto \"1W a muffled peal sounded lrom tne belfry. At the churchyard entrance the ladies at tne head of the procession filed to the rght and left, and the remains of the dewased sister member were Roome shoulder -high through, the gateway, and the el-ergy-the Rev& Hamilton Sherwin Graham, Bull, and Moirrell—and the. surpliced choir, led the way to the porch, the Rev. H. R. Snerw-n re- «ting the opemng portion of the bunaJ service. The scholars from the Neston, Park gate and Ness Holt Church schools were drawn up on either aide of the path, and the church was filled with pansh.oners who, almost without exception, wore mourning. Appropriate selections from the principal composers had been rendered during the interval by the organist (Mr. R. G. Howick). and tnese closed with a solemn funeral march as tne (:i'squet w&s borne up the nave. The service was choral, including the hymn- "k-) God our help in ages past" and "Thy will be done." The customary lesson was read by the Rev. H. J. Graham, and the Dead March from "Saul" pealed from the organ as the cortege, followed by the congregation, moved out to the grave by tne belfry. The prayers at the gra-vesid-, were offered by the Rev. C. W. Hamilton, and the hymn "Rock of Ages" was finely sung by the entire gathering. The interment was made in a new grave cut trom the native red sandstone, and the breastplate bore the simple inscription, "Harriette Turner, died 4th Decem ber, 1905, aged 64 years."
