The Remains of Miss
Mabel Hadden in Mach-
The Final Summons Came Sun
day, feb. 9th, at Noon.
Miss Mabel Young Hadden,
eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Nick
Hadden, Jr., died at her home on
Antwerp avenue in this city Sun
day at noon after long years of
suffering, having been an invalid
for the past eighteen years. She
had been a member of the Christ
ian church for fifteen years and
had always lived a lovely Christian
life. Always thoughtful of others
and thinking little of her own
suffering she was a ray of sunshine
to the home and an inspiration to
all her friends. Ever gentle, kind
and loving sho had endeared her
self to all with whom she came in
contact, and by her beautiful life
many relatives and friends were
helped to see the rugged pathways
of life in a brighter light.
The first thought of many who
stood at the open grave and saw
consigned to dust the fair young
woman whom Death, seemingly
always cruel, always unfair, al
ways unwelcome, snatched too
soon to his pitiless breast. What
is the promise of eternal life in a
"city not maao with hands," in a
land 'of unbroken peace; of cver
lasting'song; what is the- assurance
that beyotid'tne tomb and the sun
set are fairer dawn and tenderer
skies to those who lose a prize so
beloved? And yet, dear God,
"T,hy will be done."
Miss Hadden was born in Oct.
1885, thus being in her 28th year.
, Besides her parents she is sur
vived by two'sisters, Misses Kath
erine and Margaret and one
brother, Mr. Beall Hadden, nil of
whom have the deepest sympathy
of numerous friends in the loss of
their loved one.
The funeral services were held
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock,
conducted by Rev. B. W. Trimble
with burial in Miichpelnh cemetery.

factory sale Monday morning and,
prices realized were generally ac
cepted, few rejections being made.

ceipts at both houses have been
lighter than earlier m the season
and it is expected that this month

bacco season, which has indeed
been a good one. While there is
no doubt that tobacco is off, it is
still bringing a splendid price and
farmers are generally satisfied.
