JONES CAP ROAD
Wni BE WORKED
Greenville County ConTicl* Will Be
Used At Once, Says Cedar
ON SECOND WEEK
Greenville County convicts will be
put to work in the near future Qn the
South Carolina part of ;hc Jones Gap
road, according to E. A. Heath of
Cedar Mountain, who was in Brevard
this week. Mr. Heath said that he
had be«n given this information by
the captain of the chaingang, who,
in company with the road supervisor j
of Greenville Coui^ty, was in the
Cedar Mountain action a few days
ago. Mr. Heath seemed confident
that this work would begin without
delay and that the road would be
made fit for automobile traffic next
summer. His -information led him
to think that the road repairing would
start at the top «f the gap, and that
the worst places in the gorge would
be first attended to.
In this connection Mr. Heath spoke
of the development of the Cedax
Mountain section by summer tourists
and how much it meant to the people
living there. As to the prospects for
next summer, te said that he was look
ing for the best season in the history
of the community.
IN MEMORY OF MRS. INEZ EN-
On March the 24, 1921, God in his
ahvise providence saw fit to call one
of his dc*ar children from her work
on earth to that undiscovered country
from whose bourne no travellers re
turn. Sister Inez was a bright Christ
tian young lady for she left the evi
dence of such; for only two years
SL'^'o she decided for the firat time in
life to open wide the coor of her
heart for the entrance of the Holy
Spirit and she did and accepted God
as her personal Saviour. From that
day on the light of the grospel has
been a bright and shining? lamp to her
feet and a light unto her path. How
wise she was in snaking her peace cal
ling and election sure, for wise is
the man that findeth wisdom and tSie
man that getteth understanding for
the gaining of -it is better than the
gaining of silver and the profit there
of than fine g»ld. She is more pre
cious than rubies and none of the
things thou canst desire are to be
compared unto her. Length of days
are in her right hand. In her left
hand are riches and honor. Her ways
are the ways of pleasantness and all
her paths are peace. She is a tree of
life to them that lay hold upon her
and happy is every .oaie that retaineth
her. Our days sre swifter than a
weavers shuttle and are like the va
por that appeareth for a little time
and then vanishes away .and arc gone.
May wc all treasure up these bible
truths and be ready when the call is
made for us as Inez was. We thank
God for her life for it is an example
to all. She was loved by all who
knew her, but now she is gone, we
mourn hoj* loss, knowing that a place
can never be fiHod.
;e will no m>orG be a-
jE:cr.T Ira' r;v' her memory linger
uz r ^ i,h' p-.riume of the l!.o»ver3
. ( Iroiion vase. Her body
v.-s:<5 laid lo rest in the Mount Moriah
Ceiretcry where che will sleep xintil
Ins.!: iin-ai day. The^last tribute of
vcrjcct 'vac displayed by the placing
of mauy beautiful flowers on her
jvrave. May this prove a blessing to
us and that v/e all may march to
gether under the blood stained ban
ner of Christ to that home beyond the
rAcy where v/e will be in the sunlight
of God’s love on the plains of endless
time v/here the flowers in purity ever
unfold and the children of God will
never grow old. IS^ay God bless the
bereaved and stricken family and
friends and remember that he looks
upon them in their hour of desolation
and v.iil gently fold the arms of love
around those who put their trust in
him. A Friend, E. D. RANDOLPH.
