lightful reception l in honor of their
guests, Misses Edna and Pauline

spent by the large number of young

afforded delightful pastime. At the

Tribute to Mrs. Webb.
On last Saturday all Trenton was'
thrown into mourning on account
of the death of Mattie Holland, the
beloved wife of Mr. I. A. Webb.
She had been in bad health for
some time but no one dreamed that
the end was so near. She was about
her household duties only a few
hours before she dird. Truly we
can say that no V>ne has ever lived
in our community who was more
beloved than she. She was a friend
to buth old and young. Her gentle
spirit carried sunshine wherever she
went. She possessed the happy fac
ulty of adjusting her life to all oir
curastances.She was just as ready to
share the sorrows of others as to
rejoice in time of prosperity.
Words fail when we try to tell of
her good influence in the communi
ty. Truly "she went about doing
good." We find her life in the
church a model of devotion to du
ty. She always did her part and
longed to be able to do more. She
attended the last service at her
church before her death. How fit
tingly appropriate it was that the
last honor paid to her was on a
quiet Sabbath afternoon when a
very large crowd gathered at the
old church she loved so much to
pay the last tribute of respect and
love to the life of such a pure and
noble woman. She leaves a husband
and three little children who will
miss her, but may a double portion
of the spirit she possessed abide
with them. The funeral service was
conducted by Rev. Broad us Davison
who for the present- is serving as
pastor during the absence of Rev.
G. L. Knight. C.

Mere man: Madam, I wish you

Think of paint put-on and not by
A gallon of paint in the can is of
no account to anybody. Put it on.
Now reckon its cost and value.
The secret is: one paint goes
twice as far as another. A good one
goes twice as far as a bad one.
You have a job, say an average
job. It'll take 10 gallons Devoe and
12 or 15 or 18 or 20 of middling
poor very-poor and trash. You know
painter's wages in your town. Put
the price of a trallon of paint and
the painter's day wage together.
You can, we can't.
Devoe costs less than any inferior
paint; there are hundreds of them.
One paint is as good as another,
so loner as it lasts good; one lasts
months and another years; and the
one that ?roes furthest lasts longer.
