member of the Lutheran church
since she was 16 years old, and was
one of the truest and kindest and
most beloved of women. She was
universally esteemed by her neigh

Illinois may create an office with real

one of the useless offices.

What this country needs is more

Landis socked the' harpoon into the
Standard Oil octupus to the tune of
$29,000,000, although he had noth-,
iog against the company more than
the enforcement of law, and this
proves to the Courier that he is one
man in a million with the nerve to
pronounce sentence in the face of
such a great array of legal talent
and so much money.
Judge Landis recently gave an
accused man the minimum sentence
of sixty days in the house of correc
tion. That, however, is not the in
teresting part of the story which is in
volved in subsequent proceedings.
From the Chicago Record-Herald
report the following is taken.

Bring Her With Youl
WOMEN know better than men what is good qua
lity in Cloth. They know a pure wool fabric
when they see it, end they have good taste too
in the selection of fabric, design and color. That is why
we like you to Bring Her With You when you want
to buy a new suit or overcoat. Ask for the International
genuine, all wool line, and put the question of worth to
her. International quality can stand the severest test
aye-the test even of a bargain-hunting lady.
BRING HER WITH YOU.
MILLET & NAYLOR
Emily Rebecca Johnson.
Emily Rebecca Johnson was born
in Butler County, Ky., on the 21st
day of July, 1817, and departed this
life at the residence of her son Her
schel P. Johnson, in Cayce, Fulton
County, Ky., on the 23d day of Janu
ary, 1909, aged ninety one years,
six months and two days.
She was the daughter of Jeremiah
and Susan Shelton. Her father was
a pioneer Primitive Baptist minister,
who moved with his family from
Butler County to Graves County in
1820, settling a few miles east of
Mayfield, where he resided until
1829, when he moved to Weakley
County, Tenn., near Dukedom.
Here she grew to womanhood, strong
in body, mind and chancier. When
only sixteen years of age, in 1833,
she joined the Primitive Baptist
church at Bethel, in Graves County,
but subsequently, on Saturday, be
fore the first Sunday in July, 1838,
she united by letter with the church
at Mud Creek in Fulton County, and
she remained a consistent and devot
ed member of this congregation un
til her death.
On the 1st day of October, 1841,
she was united in marriage to Wm.
W. Johnson, of Fulton County, Elder
Silas Cavender being the officiating
clergyman. She lived happily with
her iiusband, on a farm near Cayce,
until his death which occurred on
the 20th day of April, 1892. She
was the mother of ten children, sev
en of whom survive her, as follows :
Jerry T. Johnson, Fultcn Co., Ky.
James C. Johnson, Mississippi.
f Henry L. Johnson, Fulton Co. Ky.
Presley W. Johnson, Union City,
Anna E. Russell, Obion Co., Tenn.
Samuel W. Johnson, Fulton Co.,
Herschel P. Johnson, Fulton Co.,
One 5on, Richard Boone, died sev
eral years ago, at the age of thirty
six, and two of her children, Arthur
and Augusta, died in infancy.
At the time of her death, she left
living twenty one grand children and
nine great grand children.
"Aunt Emily," as she was gener
ally known and affectionately called
by her many friends, was a remark
able woman. She was endowed with
a robust constitution, and strong
mind, which was cultivated in no
small degree. She was an attrac
tive and Interesting woman, always
kind and sympathetic. She was of
a devotional temperament, and was
devoted to her church, and remark
ably well versed in the Scriptures.
Her time and talents were not wast
ed in vain pursuits after the pleas
ures of this life. Hers was a long
and useful career of labor and self
sacrifice for the good of others. No
night was too dark or day too stormy
for her not to seek and comfort the
distressed or attend the sick. For
her kindness and benevolence the
Lord granted unto her a long life of
usefulness, and gave her health and
strength far beyond that allotted to
many others. So greatly was she
blessed in this particular, that she
kept house and did her own work
until she was eighty-four years of
For more than seventy five years
she was a faithful follower of Christ,
and the advancement of the Church
was her constant desire until she
fell asleep in Jesus.
Impressive funeral services were
conducted at the residence of her
baby boy, where she died, by Elder
K. M. Myatt, in the presence of a
large assembly of relatives and
friends. His text was Psalms 17-
15, "As for me, I will behold Thy
face in righteousness ; I shall be satis
fied when I awake with Thy like
ness." This text was selected, by
the minister at her request, as it
was one of her favorite passages of
Scripture. After the services were
concluded, her body was laid at rest
in the Johnson family grave yard.
