"Sadly now the. bells are ringing,
Echoes answer from the^lills,
But they cannot wake the sleeper,
< Who has passed beyond life's ills.

Since our mother went away,
But we hope again to meet her,
.In the lan"d of endless day.
Kiss the lips now cold and silent,
NB more will they speak our name
But Ve know for us they're calling;
Mother's love issstill the same.
Place a wreath upon her bosom,
As a token of our love; - ?
Seal a vow that we will meet her
In our~Father's home above.
Shesis sleeping, sweetly sleeping,
N evermore to wake or weep,
Jesus called her, gently called her,
And she softly fell asleep.."

The season is right on us for turn land deep, so as to
get an early start next spring. Land broken deep now
will not require another breaking to prepare the seed
bed. Get ahead of the boll weevil.
For fall breaking there is nothing better than a Ford
son Tractor. Nothing else does the work as satisfac
torily, nor as cheaply. We carry in stock parts and re
pairs of every kind, which will enable you to keep con-,
stantly in repair at small cost and without loss of time.
Ask farmers who are using a Fordson
tractor if it does not fill a long standing
need on the farm.
Come in to see us and let us tell you more about the
real merits of the Fordson. The price puts them in
reach of every farmer.
