ANOTHER PIONEER GONE

Today we laid to rest the mortal remains of one of Godís noblest women, Mrs. Augustine Saux; widow of the late Raymond Saux.  She died in Lewiston, February 4, 1894

About 23 years ago she was married in San Francisco to Mr. Saux and with her daughter, now Mrs. Timberlake, they moved to Idaho, first making their home in Warrens, where Melina was born.  They moved to Lewiston first renting the Hotel de France.  The personal popularity of the proprietor and his estimable wife secure for them a lucrative business.  Their numerous Warrens friends, many of whom went to Lewiston to spend the winter, always found their hotel a haven of rest and comfort and could never be induced to go elsewhere.

Business became to prosperous and rents so high that they bought the present site and erected the Raymond House, and continued an excellent business.  But just as the star of prosperity was rising in its splendor, the proprietor was called to his celestial home.  In the meantime, Wm. W. Timberlake, formerly a resident of Warrens and whose manly conduct and fine business qualifications had captured the heart and hand of Eugenia Poulin, Mrs. Saux eldest daughter, have continued with their mother, the successful proprietors and owners of the Hotel.  Mrs. Saux was stricken two years ago with the pain of almost total helplessness, and now the All-wise sees fit to terminate her sufferings.  She leaves two daughter and one granddaughter to mourn.
