about a mile west of Crainesville.
He had been hunting and was re
turning home, carrying the gun on
his shoulder with the stock behind,
and it is supposed that he either
fell, or in attempting to reverse the
position of the gun, it was dis
charged; the contents entering his
right shoulder, ranging downward
and killing him instantly. Will
Motley was a short distance in front
when he heard the report. He
hurried to him as quickly as possible
and called for help from a near by

... ' . J . i cv of the estate of B. F. Huddles-
of Mr. S. II.
Lou Clinton, of Bolivar, wb'cb oc
curred, Wednesday August 12th,
Nell was the pet of 'he family.
Her earlier days were spent at the
quiet, retired home of her parents,
six miles north of Bolivar. Here
her young heart drank in the bright
smiles of the trees and wild flowers
that grew around, and the glad
songs of the wood birds that flitted
about her country home. These
continued with her during her short
life and drew with strong bands not
only the intense love of her home
ones, but the esteem and
love of the old and young
with whom she mingled in that en
larged circle that opened to her
after the removal of her parents to
Bolivar. This was attested by the
large number that gathered at the
darkened home on Thursday evening
at funeral service, and then follow
ed to Union Cemetery, where we
laid the loved form there to sleep
until it shall awake in the likeness
of the glorified body of her blessed
Savior, to whom she had given her
heart while at school in, Lebanon,
All that the skilled physicians of
Bolivar, assisted by Dr. Neely, of
the Western Hospital, together with
the tender care of a trained nurse,
Miss Jessie White, could do, was
done to stay the ravages of the dis
ease that fasteuci upon her body;
and though a glad smile of recogni
tion played over her countenance
Wednesday morning as" she looked
into the face of ber loving mother,
awakening hope in the breast of her
loved ones of a possible recovery,
j yet in the early hours of the coming
night, she without a struggle passed
into the blessed sleep, never to be
disturbed bv the strife and storms
of an earthly life.
Thauk God, that in that better
world to which she has gone, there
is no diseased brain to intercept
tho communion of heart with heart,
soul with soul, but where "we shall
see as we are seen, know as we are
Father, mother, another cord to
bind you heaven ward. Sisters, may
. the thought of a sister in heaven
draw you nearer, nearer to God.
'Friends and associates of dear Nell,
be admonished to set your affections
J on things above, that we all may
meet our loved in the city ot our
God, is the prayer of Nell's aged
pastor, W. M. Norment.
Only a Flower That I Drop Upon
In the afternoon of August 17th, a thrill of tender
emotion went through uiy heart, when a luessen
per came to our home, bearing the tidings, "Miss
Irene Wright died ' this morning at about 11
o'clock." We did not know until that morning
that she was even sick, and I, who was sick my
self, had planned to drive down to her next morn
ing. I did go, Irene, but you, alas, were too still
then, and I had to bend a little lower to see your
sweet face through the coffined lid, while the
tears fell thick and fast, and murmured :
"There are kisses fond and sweet,
Pressed by lips no more to meet
On the gulden shore of sweet long ago."
Miss Irene had been indisposed for several days,
but she was not considered seriously ill until Sun
day noon, when she was taken suddenly worse,
and died next morn. She was so young ; the very
picture of health, vivacious, and lovely.
Death has no more cruel mission than when it
fastens its remorseless fangs upona young and
beautiful woman. That is the loveliest phase and
time of life when hopes are brightest and the
future all aglow with promise; when life is sweet
tst and every circumstance and surrounding is
clothed in gladness and joy. How cruel to crush
such heart, to blight such hope, to take such lift!
There is an inexpressible sadness that steals over
the most incorrigible heart at the announcement
of such an untimely death.
IreLe died in perfect peace, ready to meet her
father, who was waiting for her in heaven. Her
funeral servicss were conducted at her mother's
residence, Tuesday morning, by her pastor, Rev.
Mr. Cochrane. A very large concourse of relatives
and friends followed the body to the cemetery,
where beneath the mound of exquisite flowers, was
hid iVom sight all that was mortal of merry Irene
Wright. ' She was laid by the side of her father,
and together they'sleep the long and dreamless j
In life Irene was the perfect flower of beauty and
sweetness, and when she disappeared, the bloom
seemed to pass away from the summer flowers, the
azure f.'oni the calm August sky.
Many a sweet spring shall put fo.-th its blossoms
in sight of this early grave; many a gay summer
will shed its beauty around the scene, and the
bright colors of autumn will illumine the high
eminence where her ashes repose, but in this
world our much loved friend will never smile
again. The loviest flowers are olteu soonest plucK
ed, and this sweet flower has been transplanted to
a more genial clime.
We miss you, Irene. We miss the smiles from
the sunniest face. You were the bright home
angle, the fairest and sweetest singing bird, and
mother, brothers and sisters miss the silvery voice
that was so often heard in the adjoining room.
catching up and echoing little snatches of melody ;
they miss your sweet kisses, your soft hands, and
the sound of vour feet upon the stairs; they miss
the sweet, fresh face that always came to the bed
room in the morning, and the triple good-night
kiss in the evening. When the summer grasses
grow, and the autumn leaves fall upon your grave,
we will miss you then as now, everywhere, dearest,
but we will try not to miss you in heaven.
No more itt their borne will your light, bound -in;
Make sweetest of music to your fond mother's
No more will the melody of your rich, clear Toice
Gladden the hearts of your brothers, who loved
you so dear.
Fair sisters lament thee, and comfortless weep,
For on of their number has lain down to sleep.
The sweet sister wreath now is lacking one gem
On, where is the jewel? In God's 'diadem.
Ye kindred in sorrow, your treasure 's in dust.

of cholera morbus by taking
Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver

coming on. Such attacks are usually
caused by indigestion and these
Tablets are just what is needed to
cleanse the stomach and ward off the
approaching attack. Attacks of
bilious colic may be prevented in
the same way. For Bale by Cox &
