A sad accident ovccured on Mr. T. J. Tis

resulting in the death of Hattie, the seven
year-old daughter, of Mr, Tisdale. A rab
bit was discovered in the field where Mr.
Tisdale was working and the dogs ran it
in the hollow of a cypress tree, the children
brought their father an ax to cut it down.
The tree was about ten inches in diameter
and in falling it struck a tree that the chil
dren were standing behind; they became
frigtened and ran, but the unforitunate
little one had not gotten quite out of its
reach; the top limbs caught Hattie, striking
her on the head and rerdering her uncon
scious. The distracted father ran to her,
caught her up in his arms and carried her
to the house where she died in a short time.

Miss H. Ellen Ridgeway, aged 72
years, died at her home, near Jordan,
March 6th 1896. Although uncon
scious when found, and remaining
so, we have a well grounded hope
that our friend is forever with the
Lord. She joined the church at an
early age and was a consistent Chris
tian from the date of her conversion
to her death. She was devoted to
all interests of the church. She was
especially cheerful around her fire
side and always looked on the bright
side of life, thereby encouraging
others to look forward to better
things. Our friends are passing over;
the blood-wvashed company on the
other side of the river is growing
larger each day.
