war; that is to say in the Quarter
master Enlisted Reserve Corps.
The kind of men wanted are driv

of laborers, storekeepers and skilled
North Carolina, South Carolina,

Death of a Little Child.
Virginia is a beautiful name; a
name, methinks, akin to that of the
Virgin Mary, the mother of our
Lord. This was the name of her
Little Virginia Walton, infant
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cleve
land Walton, was a lovely child;
beautiful and bright with dark
brown eyes, dark hair-a complex
ion as fair as the lily. Uer rare in
telligence and cunning ways won
the love of every one who knew her.
The Lord giveth and the Lord
taketh away. Truly, the ways of
the Lord are mysterious, and be
yond understanding. Why the
most choice bud, and the only child,
so young and so innocent, should
be called un yonder and the home of
these young and fond parents made
so dark and desolate in the very be
ginning of their newly married lite
is beyond the understanding of hu
man intelligence. Her earthly ex
istence was short-some 15 months
or there-abont-but she made her
impress, and eternal will he her
heavenly rest. "Safe in tho arras of
Jesus." One of the songs of the
burial service, conducted by the
Rev. II. B. White at McKendree
Friday morning in this instance
was, in truth, most appropriate.
The short earthly existence of
this little innocent child was not
without suffering. Beginning in the
early part of the year she contracted
measles, complicated with bron
chitis; scarcely had she recovered
from those maladies, she contracted
dysentery, then nephritis and other
complications. For weeks she was
intelligently and lovingly nursed,
and all the skill that medical science
could offer was ministered from day
to day but all without avail. God
in his divine wisdom had decreed
Words of sympathy are as straws
to grief stricken parents, but conso
lation will come to them in this,
that they discharged their duty,
watchfully, unceasingly, and un
sparingly. And too the short life
of their child in all its purity will
be an inspiration, and an incentive
to a higher life. No one living
knoweth the meaning, the depth?
nor the magnitude of being, ' Safe
in the arms of Jesus."

For those who are in need of a

Doan's Kidney Pills. They are

W. H. Paul, painter and paper

"I was bothered by kidney trouble
all my life. It grew worse when I
had the measles some years ago.
Doan's Kidney Pills removed the
pains and strengthened and regula
ted the action of ray kidneys. My
health became better than it had
been in ra^ny years." (Statement
given April 12, 1911.)

The Sunday-school teacher was
talking to her pupils on patience.
She explained her topic carefully,
and as aid to understanding she
gave each pupil a card bearing the
picture of a boy fishing. "Even
pleasure," she said, "requires the
exercise of patience. See the boy
fishing; he must sit down and wait.
He must be patient. And now can
any little boy tell what we ueed
most when we go fishing?"
The answer was quickly shouted
with one voice: "Bait."-Selected.

"For months I was in a broken
down condition and just lay around
the house, unable to do anything, I
was so weak and nervous. I was
past going for a long time, and I
spent a lot of time in bed or in
chair," said Mrs. M. D. Rowers, of
Williamston, S. C.. in her state
ment endorsing Tanlac. "I had
been under treatment off and on all
the time, but I failed to improve
until I began taking Tanlac. Real
ly, I steadily got worse until I be
gan taking Tanlac. For ten years
my health had been going down
hill. My stomach was in an awful
condition, and I suffered terribly
"But since taking Tanlac I feel
fine. I took eleven bottles and I'm
doing all my house work now, and
when night comes I still feel strong
and good. The Tanlac just worked
a miracle for me, I think, and one
who bas never been as sick as I was
for such a long time cannot under
stand just what I suffered. It is
the only medicine that ever helped
me, and I had been sickly for ten
years. I am glad to recommend
Tanlac, too, for I think it is the
finest there has ever been. "

Dr. Henry van Dyke, on his way
back to America aboard a liner, wrote
the following poem under the title.
Home for my heart stills me;
Home, through the danger zone,
Home, whate'r befalls me,
I will sail again to my own!
Wolves of the sea are hiding
Closely along the way,
Under the water biding
Their moment to rend and slay.
Black is the eagle' that brands them,
Black are their hearts as the night,
Black is the hate that sends them
To murder but not to fight.
Flower of the German Culture,
Boast of the Kaiser's Marine,
Choose for your emblem the vulture,
Cowardly, cruel, obscene!
Forth from her sheltered haven
Our peaceful ship glides slow,
Noiseless in fight as a raven,
Gray as a hoodie crow.
She doubles and turns in her bearing,
Like a twisting plover she goes,
rhe way of her westward faring
Only the Captain knows.
In a lonely bay concealing
She lingers for days, and slips
\t dusk from her covert stealing
Thro' channels feared by the ships.
3rave are the men, and steady,
Who guide her over the deep,
british marines, ready
To face the sea wolf's leap.
jord of the winds and waters,
Bring our ship to her mark,
safe from this game of hide and seek
With murderers in the dark.
