Oh Thursday, Jane S8ih. the
body of oar loving father was
Laid to rest in the family burial
ground. But his soul baring
beard the command of the King
"Come up higher” had winged
Its way to mansions of delight.
He waa nearing his 76 year, waa
a Confederate soldier of tbe Civil
War and one of the oldest mem
berm of Bethany M. E. church in
which he will be greatly missed
for he wae always ready to do all
he could for its cause. Although
there were often great obstacles
in his path, yet he always looked
to Him who is above all (or help,
and when toiling at his bench
one could often hear the dear,
but tremulous strains, "He Lend*
«th Me.” He waa known by tbe
community at Urge to be a man
to do all the good he could.
One of the striking traits of kis
character was his devotion to his
wife and six children, all of whom
survive him. He was always
ready to do all he could to make
them comfortable and happy.
The church has lost a faithful
member, the county a loyal citi
sen aad the community one of
Its best men. All was done for
him that loving hands could do,
out ne coum not stay longer, for
God bad called him to go where
He had made a place for him in
that beautiful heaveoly home.
We would not call him bach to
the sorrows and evils of this life
bat rejoice in the thought that
he is "Safe in the arms of Jesus."
"He is sleeping, only sleeping.
And his form is laid away,
in the heavenly Father's keeping
Till the resurrection day.
"He is sleeping, only sleeping.
All his trials have been borne,
Besting in his Father’s keepiog,
Till the rcsa met ion morn."

A Soldier’s Side Of It.
We're no4 ashamed of the uniform
And if you're e friend
You will never toy against it
Any word that will offend;
It baa covered honored bodies.
And by heroes bed been worn,
Since the days of the Bispublio,
When the Stem nod Stripes were
Uniforms have many
Some ere khaki, eon
And men who choose ms
Are many patterns; too.
Soma are eons of wealthy parents,
Some are college graduates,
Some have many virtues,
Some are limply reprobates.
I We have many skilled mechanics,
Men of brain and letter, wko
Loyally have served their oonntry
That they are a credit la
No, indeed, they ere not angels;
Blackguards?-yes, we’ve some of
those, " *
Bat when they come into the ser
They all wore civilian elotbas.
Men of all kinds when they’re
Misbehave, act rough and swear;
Drunken soldiers or civilians
Are disgusting anywhere.
Grunt os then your kind forbear
We’ll appreciate it mooh more
Than a lot of noise end rhinyigg
When we’re leaviqg for a war.
We have eat with yon in public.
And have smelled your whiskey
Heard remarks, inaana and ailly,
Nearly boring us to death,
Though we’ve offered no objection
When at theatres we met;
Yet you think you should delude
Prom tba most exclusive set.
I! you meet as oat in public,
On the street or snywhere,
We don’t merit sneering-^tnoces,
Nor patronising stare;
For we hare an honored calling
Aa oar garmeats plainly show,
You may be a thief or a person—
How on earth are we to know ?
We don't oars about roar profes
Occupation or what yon do;
When yon’rs lookup at a soldier
And he’s looking beck at yoa;
Who in there to judge between aa
As we stand there asea to manf
Only oua—the great Almighty,
Name another if yon eao.
Drop yonr proud and haughty
And yonr egotistic pride,
Get aoqoainted with thh soldier,
And the heart sod soul inside;
Test sod try to analyse him,
Critieise him through and through
And yoa’U vary likely iiod him
Just as GOOD a man AS YOU.
