aently the spirit of William Benson
Evans. and briog it, to me. Calm and
peacefully did we find his lifeless body
on the cold damp earth, but his soul
was asleep in Jesus from which none
ever wakes to weep. He was 54 years
old, in the year of our Lord 1884, he
was happily married to Miss Garland
E. Similev, to this vision was borned
twelve children, nine of whom are liv
ing, he was a true husband, a tender
and lovirig father, a kind and helpful
friend, and his death has deprived his
neighborhood of. one of its choicest
characters. He L ft with us many a.s
surances of his acceptance with. God
Through Faith in Christ Jesus. With
him the storms of life are over and he
is anchored in the harbor. He is gone
but not forgotten. Yes Thou art gone
Thou much loved voice our ears no
longer hear but oft in house of solitude
starts the: unforbidden tears. We
would not wish to call thee hack to
such a world as t'r is. but trust that we
some day shall join thee in the relitude
of Bliss. During his life he had en
deared himself to his loved ones by
bonds of affections, that time can never
break. Loving - hearts grieves over
his going away, but we know where to
find him. Ours is the loss, his is etern
al gain. Dearest Father and must we
part dearest treasure .of my heart.
Death has struck the fatal blow that
parted us here below, we mourn thy
loss dear loved one submissively while
we wait for a happy, joyous welcome

One of the diffcul ties in the way o
securing justice from the courts is thi
e practice of a certatin class of lawyers ti
Sdelay the operation of justice, as ion:.
d as fees can be obtained just so long wil
e ways be devised to thwart the proc

masses tired of the delay and frivolou:
appeals lose confidence in the courts
and seek to take the law into thei
own hands. We believe the court:
should throw its protecting arms arouni
every citizen be he high or low, at thi
same time, we do not think it right foi
Justice to be commercialized as it i
being done by many lawyers.
In commenting on the Scott Madiso:
