Rev. Thomas Corkern, died last
Friday afternoon at her home
in North Franklinton after an
illness of thirty-three years from
About 9 years Mrs. Corkern
Shas been unable to walk or was
confined to her bed, and the
patient Christian life that
developed thru these years of
suffering have been a blessing
and a sweet benediction to her
family and the large circle of
friends who so constantly asso
ciated with her.
This last illness which seized
Mrs. Corkern seems not to have
been due to rheumatism but was
an acute stomach trouble which
she herself pronounced fatal,
notwithstanding the physician.,
and friends could not see any
cause for alarm. Upon her rc
quest the absent members of her
family were called to her bed
side, and being fully rational she
would from time to time calmly
express the wish that she might
only live till all her children gath
ered to speak to her once more.
Miss Annette Corkern from
Baylor University, Texas, ar
rived Thursday and on the same
train came a special pnysician
called in consultation, with a
trained nurse, all considering
the patient's condition very hope
ful. The oldest son, Rev. Willis
Corkern from Kerens, Texas,
reached his mother's bedside
near noon Friday, and as if she
had all of earthly joy which could
be afforded her, she soon sank
into the last sweet sleep from
which she passed into the be
yond as if calmly claiming the
Christian's promised rest from
all pain and suffering.
The departed is survived by a
husband, Rev. Thomas Corkern,
who thru all the years, with
truest love and perfect patience
has stood by his afflicted wife to
relieve and comfort in every way
possible and to have himself
grown so tender and helpful thru
his Christlike ministry to the
suffering, that he now draws all
mankind to him in confidence
and love. Two sons, W, A. Cot-k
ern, a minister of Texas, and
John Corkern, mechanic with
the Bulloch Motor Co,; and six
daughters, Mesdames Marion
Knight, C. J. Gayer, and Vera
Jenkins of Franklinton, Mrs. W.
F. Edwards of Bon Ami, Miss
Annette Corkern, attending col
lege at Baylor University, and

: immediate family of the disceas
A large number of close rela
tives and numerous friends are
affected by the loss of this Godly
woman but all are comforted by
the assurance of her eternal rest
and the memory of the Christ

Winter Brings many Ills to Pale,
Fortify Your System-Good Blood
Will Give You New Strength
to Keep Well
If you feel the least bit run
down, not necessarily sick, but
tired and blue and sort of down
and out, it shows plainly that
your power of resistance is low.
It is dangerous to go around
that way. You don't want to do it.
Make no mistake about it,
when you feel yourself slipping
into lazy habits, getting indiffer
ent to the things you naturally
like-no energy, no vigor, always
tired-it is time to look out. It
may not mean that you are sick
or that you will be. But there
are diseases that would have an
easy time of it with your system
when your blood has no fighting
You want to be well and keep
well and feel strong. If you
build up the quality of your
blood by taking Pepto-Mangan
you will be in trim to fight off
winter ills. It has just the right
ingredients to build your blood
up with rich, red corpuscles.
Pepto.Mangan gives your blood
the qualities it needs to pick you
up and start you off on a healthy
basis. You will notice the differ
ence soon after you start taking
it. You will have better color,
better feeling, and more energy.
You can take it in liquid or
tablet form as you prefer. Both
have the same ingredients. But
be sure you get the genuine
Gude's Pepto\Mangan. Ask for
it by that name-'"Gude's Pepto.
Mangan," and be sure the full
name is on the package.-Adver
