The End of a Peaceful Life

Hugh Simpson Enloe died at his home near Bishop last Sunday, after a brief illness, at the age of 80 years, 1 month and 22 days. The funeral occured Monday from the Methodist Church. Fortunate and well ordered indeed, has been the life which closes as did his. No enmities survive him. His mourning relatives find many friends whose privilege is to speak kindly of him. He was an atheist of the most pronounced type until his age had already begun to silver his head, but some twenty years ago his belief changed. Conscious to the last, he passed away in the firm trust that he would waken in eternal flay. His religion was of the kind which is respected and which honor its possessor, the kind which is daily a living example of the precepts taught in it. His life and the peaceful surrender of its forces at last truly exemplify the poets injunction, for he so lived that when his summons came, he wrapped the drapery of his couch about him and lay down to pleasant dreams. Mr. Enloe was near relative of Congressman Enloe of Tennessee, and was a man well informed and of retentive mind. His wife, who has been beside him for fifty-four years, survives him. Mrs. Brierly, Mrs. Bucknam and James Enloe, of Bishop, and Enoch Enloe of Oakland are their daughters and sons.
