Resolutions of Respect to the
Memory of Brother Herbert
It is in accordance with God's fi
nal laws that ail men shall die, not
all at one time, nor by any regular
rule as man would make it, but in a
way that will best accomplish Hi? di
"Where two are grinding at the
mill one shall bc taken and the other
left," but if it is in accordance with
the nature of human affections with
which He has so endowed us that we
grieve over the departure of one our
loved ones so taken. This fact was
brought home to us in a most im
pressive manner when God saw lit to !
take from our midst our loved broth- j
er, Herbert L. Bunch, and while we,1
knowing His ways are best, bow in j
humble submission to His divine will,
yet our hearts are saddened as we ?
miss the gras]) of a vanished hand. !
Therefore, be it Resolved
First, that in the death of brother:
Bunch, this church has io.-;;, one oi its
most useful members and our com
munity a valued citizen.
Second, This church extends to his
bereaved family our heartfelt, Chris
Third, That a copy of these resolu
tions be given to the family of our de
parted brother, and that a page on

How is Your Complexion?
A woman should grow more beau
tiful as she grows older and she will
with due regard to baths, diet and ex
ercise, and by keeping her liver and
bowels in good working order. If you
are haggard and yellow, your eyes
losing their lustre and whites becom
ing yellowish, your flesh flabby, it
may be due to indigestion or to a j
sluggish liver. Chamberlain's Tablets j
correct these disorders.
Liquor Selling and Drinking ait
Please allow me space in your pa
per to call attention to what I con
sider a very grave condition 1n our
country. On several occasions in the
last three months in our negro gather
ings in the rural districts, we have
had to contend with an element cf
our people, that under ordinary cir
cumstances, on account of their ig
norance, give our leaders a great deal
of trouble, and those of us who are
as far removed from such conduct as
the east is from the west, usually are
considered along with the lower ele
ments when we are spoken of gener
The evil I have in mind and of
which I have seen so much recently
is the illicit dealing in liquor. At one
of our big gatherings recently, I
counted a dozen or more drunken
men, some affected one way and
some another, but all crazy and disor
derly, and if it is not looked after we
cannot tell to what extent it will fi
nally carry these people and degrade
those of us who are utterly opposed
to such conduct.
I realize that to call attention to
this evil may cause some of these li
quor soaks to think I am meddling
with things that don't concern me,
but I have the welfare of my people
at heart and know that the liquor evil
is one of the greatest curses to any
people and especially to our ignorant
people. Whoever is responsible for
this state of things should be made to
feel. punishment. I understand that
this stuff is costing from $4 to $12 a
quart. This robbery is enough to
cause action in itself, not considering
the more vital question of debauching

Death of Mr. James Smyly
A noble, brave, young spirit re
turned to the God from whence it
came, when-Monday afternoon at
three o'clock James Smyly Stevens
peacefully breathed his last at the
home of his mother, Mrs. Ida Stevens,
near Meeting Street. For more than
a year James was an ill man. Despite
everything that human skill,'love and
devotion could do to stay the steady
tread of death by arresting the mala
dy that had fixed itself upon his
strong, manly form, the disease made
progress? gradually sapping his
strength and vitality. During the long
weeks and months that he lingered,
he was patient and gave evidence of
unusual fortitude. God gave him the
courage and brave spirit that was
needed for the battle for life. The
unceasing devotion of his mother,
sister and other loved ones in its ten
derness was beautiful. Never did they
seem to tire, in spite of the great tax
at times upon their physical strength.
James was in his 33rd year. Cut
down in the prime of active, young
manhood. He trusted his Saviour and
expressed a readiness and willingness
to pass into the spirit land, where
loved ones who had gone before a
waited him. He was a member of old
Stevens Creek church. The interment
took place in "Hollywood," the fam
ily burial ground near the old Ste
This widely beloved young man
who will not be seen in the flesh 'a
gain by his friends and loved ones,
leaves behind a devoted mother, Mrs.
Ida Stevens, and affectionate sister,
Miss Lena Stevens, and three broth
ers, Ben, Smyly and Lewis Stevens.
I Kow Diphtheria is Contracted.
J One often hears the expressoin,
"My child caught a severe cold which
developed into diphtheria," when, the
truth was that the cold had simply
left the little one particularly suscep
tible to the wandering diphthera
germ. If your child has a cold"when
diphtheria is- prevalent you should
take him out of school and keep him
off the street until fully recovered,
as there is a hundred times more dan
ger of his taking diphtheria when he
has a cold. When Chamberlain's
j Cough Remedy is given it quickly
cures the cold and lessens the dan
ger of diphtheria or any other germ
disease being contracted.
