Died From Lockjaw.—We re
gret to announce the death of Mrs.
B. D. Hamill, of Thelma, which
occurred al a hospital in Norfolk,
last Saturday. She was taken to
a hospital about two weeks ago for
an operation, and while the opera
tion was thought to be successful
at first, as she improved very much
for two days, she was taken with
lockjaw and died In a short while.
The remains were brought to
Thelma and interred In the family
burying ground on Monday.
Mrs. Hamill leaves a devoted
husband and two children to mourn
their loss. She was a sister of our
townsman, Mr. H. L. Grant.
Home from Germany.—The
many friends of Lieut. Charles R.
Daniel are delighted to have him
in Weldon again after an extended
absence in the training camps and
the overseas campaign. Lieut.
Daniel sailed for France In the
spring of 1918, was in active ser
vice before the breaking of the fa
mous Hindenburg line and after
wards belonged to the army of oc
cupation. His experiences like
those of others were varied and
thrilling but It seems that lo most
of our returned soldiers the events
of those awful months are a sealed
book which they do not care to
open or dwell upon and he is no
exception. However, we wish for
him all the success possible In the
life work which he had mapped
out and which he will resume after
a short visit and rest at home, that
of the study of law.

The Children.—God bless the
children. They are a world of
care and trouble; they bring pain
and weariness and sorrow, but are
worth It all. Do you remember
after that weary day when you
were harsh and irritable and they
went to sleep with a sob, what
bright fresh faces they brought to
you in the morning? How full of
tenderness and forgiveness chil
dren are! How quick to forget
unkindness I How fine is the In
telligence with which they look be
neath the surface and know that
the irritable, nervous, creature of
the night before is not the real
mother, but the serene, gentle wo
man of the morning whom they
love with deep devotion. They
are the beautiful examples of the
truth that sorrow may endure for
Ihe night but joy cometh in the
morning. By their love and
brightness they repay ur hourly
for every struggle we may endure

other Chill and Fever Tonic on the
