already "by reason of strength," have
been well "pent and as she sits and hi
watches for the sun to set she can
say truily "I have fought the good
fight." It is the sincere hope of all M
who know her that she may live to al
see many more reunions of her child
ren, grandchiildren and great-grand-L
children. M rs. Nalley has been ani it
invalid for more than a year, but wvas
able to be carried out on a cot and cc
in the shade of a nice little tent that
bad been prepared for her, enjoyed de
the day. Her many friends will be iti
pleased to know that she is improvmng.
