THE FRANKLIN PRESS
IN MEMORY OF ' '
Joseph Conlcy Morrison, son of J.
M. and Margaret Ann Morrison, was
born November 21; 1903. He professed
faith in Christ January 10, 1923, and
was baptized fhe first Sunday in
March, 1923. Ik Was married to Miss
'Edith Hall, March 28, 1923.. Departed
this life March 15, 1924, about six
o'clock in the evening. ! " '
To'know Conley was to love, him.
While it seems hard to give him up,
We feel assured our loss ishis. eternal
gain, for he bid his friends and loved"
"ones all good-bye and askedthem" to
meet him in heaven. While it almost
broke our hearts to give him up; yet
we must submit to the will of an all
wise Heavenly Father. that doeth all
things well. In His blessed Word He
tells us if we hold out faithful to the
end he has a crown of life laid up for
us. In my imagination I can see. Dear
Conley over on that peaceful shore
beckoning his friends and loved ones
to follow on' to that happy home on
high, where no sad parting comes
and no farewell tears are shed. It
seemed to me while I stood by his
bed side in his last moments that the
heavenly host of angels was around
his bed to carry his spirit to that
peaceful and happy home on high.
Thank God for that dyingnigraee he
gives all of his children. ;
Then Conley said he wanted to see
his wife one time more Some one
brought her to his bed side. He
kissed her good-bye and told her he
wanted to be buried, at Oak Grove
cemetery. .1 have stood by the bed
side of a great many dying people.
I never saw one die as conscious as
Just a little bit before" he died he
was praying. 1 heard him say, "Dear
Lord, help me to come where there'
is peace." Then he said to tell all
of his friends who wanted to, see him
once more alive to come, and there
were many broken-hearted friends
who. looked at Dear Conley for the
last time in this world. ,He said he
wanted to see his mother once agamj

hearted mother to his bed side. He
made signs that he wanted to kiss
her, so she bfeuved over his bed and he
kissed his mother farewell.
Brother Bradley and myself were
conducting a revival meeting at Oak
Grove when Conley professed faith
in Christ. .1 tried to, preach on the
second coming of Christ and th" fina
separation, I remember so well just
how Conley looked when he came to
the altar for prayer. I shall always

We humbly pray -God's richest
blessings to ever rest on the bereaved
family, and help them to be prepared
to meet dear Conley in a better land.
I am in great sympathy with his
father. May God bless and save his
soul. Dear Christian people' let's all
make the entire family a special ob
ject of prayer, that they may be an
undivided family around the bright
throne of God. G. A. CLOER.

AS ROAD MATERIAL
Experience Has Shown that Stone

Concrete roads, properly made with
good Portland cement, .offer consider
able choice of basic materials, accord
ing to the local market, and a satis
factory long wearing road when
"completed. For suburban 'and rural
roads concrete is an ideal road, ma
terial. Concrete consists of a mix-
ture of water, cement, sand, and
gravel or stone of many varieties.
Engineers call the sand part the "fine
aggregate," and the pebbles or rock
the "coarse aggregate." Given clean
aggregates and good cement' and the
road when finished will be durable,
dustless, very easily maintained, and
The two disadvantages, tracking
and breaking at the edges, can both
be overcome. Cracking, as a result of
temperature changes, and stress does
little or no harm if the crack-is
