While Republicans are exulting
over a possible victory they should
bear in mind that NOMINATION
is one thing and ELECTION another.
It is refreshing to see college grad

That which most fits Mr. Harding

Tribute to Mrs. Martin Whit
In the death of Mrs. Martin Whit
lock some weeks ago a good woman
was taken from our community and
called to her reward in Heaven. She
was a great suffered for about six
months prior to her death but she
bore it all patiently. Being paralyzed
she had to lie upon her back all the
time and was a great sufferer but
she was never heard to murmur or
complain. She spoke several times to
the writer about her readines to die.
At one time she asked why she could
not be taken so that others would not
have to nurse and lift her. She was
thinking more of others than her
self. Her husband, an old crippled
Confederate veteran, never tired or
complained but constantly minister
ed to her wishes and comforts. Her
son and his wife, also friends and
neighbors were very faithful. Mrs.
Whitlock was a good woman ,a kind
neighbor and a member of the Philip
pi church, where the funeral and in
terment took place. Her neighbors,
and friends will miss the smiles which
she always bore on her face. The
community has sympathized deeply j
with this stricken home.
