things had passed away and all things had
become new ; for he loved t« hear the gospel
preached and to communicate often with the
brethren, it .seemed, above all other thing.s,
and often trawled many miles to liear preach
ing and meet with the brethren he so much
He left a true and loving wife, -with five
children to mourn for him. His loss to them
is irreparable, and truly do we sympathize
with his bereaved widow and hope that she
may find comfort in the sweet assurance that,
though he can never come to her again, she
can go to him i« that bright laud, where no
parting is ever known, and God will wipe all
tears away and crown them- with immortal
life. His funeral wa.s preached by Ehd. Wm.
EA Bell, and attended by many sympathizing
relatives and friends. After the services were
over lie was borne to liis last resting place
and laid in the cold and silent grave, to sleep
until the resurrection morn, when we hope to
ineet him risen in Christ, clothed in a robe of
linen white, and bearing a palm of victory
In this section of country, during the past
year, death has reaped down the old and
young, and most of them our most useful cit
izens. How grateful we all should feel, that
God, in mercy, has spared us to see the close
of another year. Since the 7 th of last March
six of our members at Kehnkee have died.
TO THE MEMORY OF OUR DEPARTED BRETH
Our members are departing one by one
And leave us soon to follow on ;
They are gone home to Christ above.
Where all is peace, and jey, and love.
They are gone to a city built of precious
Who.se streets arc pav’d with purest gold;
Where streams of crystal water flow,
And trees of life beside the river grow.
Its walls are built of jasper stone.
Its gates are set with ancient pearls ;
With foundations twelve, for the Lamb’s
And the living God is the temple there.
The Lamb of God is the light thereof,
And from the throne doth living water
Tlie Son in righteousness will ever reign
e’er all that high extended plain.
Ill tliat bright, seren and happy home '
They sit around the great white throne,
Arraved in linen robes so pure and white,
With crowns of sparkling gems so bright.
A new song they will forever sing,
O’ershadow'd by the gentle seraph’s wing;
There .'it before a Savior’s smiling face.
And sing of Gad’s redeeming grace,

Dear Brother Gold:—
By r( 'jneKl of liis wife, I -write this obituary
■(otlu- memory of otir beloved brother, Wm.
R. LEGGETT—aged 59 years and 6 months.
On wedne.day morning, the 1st day of
November, just about sunrise, our dear broth
er wa.s very suddenly called away from our
midst. He hud been a little unwell for sev
eral days, bat had kept up, attending to his
hu.siness, und his wife did not think anything
serious was the matter. That morning he
got up quite early, ratighis bell, and gave or-
'Icrs to his laborers, as usual, then lay dt^wn
oil the hcl, saying lie felt badly, and died in
a few minutes without a struggle or a groan.
riiOHg.i he was taken away from u.s so unex-
tsxMedly. lie left us to hope that he sleeps in
.le.su.s. The change in him was so great,
since he profe-s-sed a liope, that we all
mu.st feel that God had shown him a new
and living way. Ho, a;nl hi.s wife, were le-
(dfiveJ into the church at Kehukee, Satur-
■ iay, .Mi'.y 12tli, 1875, and were both baptized
thtUdayby E'd. \Vm. E'. Bell. Since that
time he appeared to be a new man, walking
iu newness of life, and bearing the enws. Old

On Jan. 18th, CHARLES DAVID, infant
son of the same, aged 11 months and 11 days.
Sad, Indeed, were the circumstances attend
ing the death of the.se little babes. Their
fond mother had rocked them to sleep, kissed
their rosy lips and tucked them in their crib,
side by side. Being called out to attend to
some busines.s, she closed the door, leaving
them alone and a bright fire burning on the
hearth. She was gone only a short time w’hen
she heard them .scream- She imineillately
ran to the house when, to her liorror, she saw
her little babe standing in the crib wrapped
in flames. In an instant she snatched him
out and looked for lier little girl wlio had
crawled out, and found l»er in the next room
burned almost to death. Taking lier up she
rushed out with both, when by pouring water
on them the flames were eiitingni.shed. Med
ical aid was at once procured, but in vain.—
They peacefully breathed their last after
sliort but painful suffering. SympatliiKiug
friends and relatives tried to comfort the be
reaved mother and speak words of peace
to the heart-stricken father, who was away
from home when the accident occurred. He
left them w-ell and playful and came back to
find his little darlings cold in death. They
were children of unsual promise Two fair
flowers transplanted to the garden of our
Lord to bloom forever in immortal beauty.—
God can only heal the wounds which, in his
own wise providence, are permitted. .Af
flicted parents, be comforted, Look beyond
this vail of tears to a brighter world above,
where they doubtles.s are waiting for you.—
Try to meet them in that better land and
trust a nserciful God, who wouik^ but to
