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." DAUGHTERS. IwttwUst WittCmwill Cfwmll Cltittai Add Their Praise.

Soma are eons of wealthy parents, Some are college graduates, Some have many virtues, Some are limply reprobates.

And have smelled your whiskey breath; 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 os 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 sion 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 bearing 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.
