survive her only one month and 18
days. There was one child born
two days old at the time of her
death. She was a sweet, obedient,
mild and loving child. She always
had a Smile on her face and a kind
and pleasant word for home and all
who knew; her. i She loved and was
loved by ajl.who knew her. She was
a devoted daughter and a loving
granddaughter She was always a lit
tle bright sunbeam in her home; she
was a little flower just begun to
sprout. She always tried to cheer
her mother, grandmother, aunts, un
cle, relatives and friends and play
mates as she grew up in wisdom and
knowledge and would always speak
of her willing mind to become use
ful to her race and to family. She
had often told her mother and grand
mother that if she lived to become
grown she wanted the Lord to let
her be useful in His works and calls
and to take care of them in their
older days. She professed hope in
Christ three years ago under Rev.
Dr. Smith in Columbia. She then
often spoke of her mother being a
sinner and also to her and her uncle
and asked that all of the Christians
pray for them as she was' on her
way to heaven. She wanted to see
them fighting for it also.
At the time of her death she was
at Fleming,- Ky., although she kept
her eye. upon the bright and morn
ing star. She had often salrt when
the Lord called her not to say she
was dead, but had fallen asleep in
Jesus. She was a member of the
First Baptist Church at Columbia.
She was a student of .Hadly School
and a devoted Sunday school scholar
hen living In Nashville.
"Since it has pleased the Almighty
God to come in our midst it behooves
us to bow our heads in grief and our
hearts in sorrow and say1
Ye mourning saints whose streaming
Flow over your little one that's
Say not in transport of despair
. That all your hope Is fled.
Though your youn.g branch Is torn
Like withered trunks ye stand;
With fairer verdue shall ye bloom,
Touched by the Almighty hand.
I'll give ye mourning saints, saith the
In my own house a place;
No names of daughters or of sons
Could yield so high a grace.
Transient and vain In every hope,
A rising place can give;
In endless home and delight
My children all shall live.
We welcome, Lord, those rising tears
Through which thy face we see;
And bless those . wounds which
through our, hearts
Propose a place for me. .'
Her words the happy parents hear
And shout with Joy divine;
Oh, Saviour! all we have
We pray that It is Thine.
She leaves to mourn their loss a
mother, father, grandmother, tour
punts, an uncle and a host of rela
tives and friends. Mother, you have
lost a loving and devoted child and
also a little flower who always will
be -remembered. Grandmother, yon
have lost a bright little gem who will
always press your heart and remem
brance. Aunts and uncles, you have
lost one that you never will forget.
It Is our loss and heaven's gain. It Is
a long warning and a loud calling to
the unprepared and to the prepared
to fight on. Some day they will
meet her In the great beyond never
to part again.
Her mother and uncle being sin
ners, she asks the people to pray for
them that they may become Chris
tians and meet her. May we all bow
our heads in solemn prayer for the
bereaved family In their lonely hours
and distress and pray for her uncle
and mother and pray for her blessed
grandmother, who has been fighting
for the kingdom so long that she
may grow stronger in her older days
and that she may fight on until the
Lord says thou hast done enough,
thou faithful servants, well done.
Though hast done enough. Cpme up
