DEATH OF ELISHA ALEXANDER.
On the 14th day of February,
1 921 , the death angel visited the
home of Mirs. Rutha Alexander and
claimed for its victor her third son,
Elisha Alexander. His death was
caused from a fall he received while
hauling wood the 8th of January,
1921. He attempted to put a big
stick of wood on the wagon and got
entangled in some brush which threw
hirm to the ground and paralyzed the I
lower part of his body, which caused
him to never walk any wore. He
suffered five weeks, but bore it with
out one word. His suffering never!
worried him one bit. When any one
asked him how he was feeling he
always said, "I am feeling all right."
His death will bring sorrow to many
throughout. the county where he has
lived all his life and took care of his
aged mother. lie never united with
any church, but was a good, honest,
tirut hful. upright man, always loyal
to his friends and neighbors. and a
charitable giver to the poor and
needy. If I'lisha had lived until the
29th day of March, 19121 , he would
have been fifty years old. He leaves
an aged mother, Mrs. Rutha Alex
ander, and four brothers, Sarge, tob-'
ert, Arthur and Bleve, and a host of
friends and relatives to mourn his l
death. His father and two brothes t
andl one sister pre'cedled himi to the
grav'e several years ago. F'uneral
services were cond~ucted at his home(
in the presence of a large crowd of I
sorrowing friends and relatives. Rev.
W. TI. A bbott heing in charge. I Hisy
body was laid to rest in the Craig
huorying ground Wedne.sday follow
ing his death. We will miiss him so
mutch in the home and in the coml
munoity, but we hav'e the good conso..
IatLion that he is at rest, and the
wvriter feels sure that he will meet
him across the river over inth
swet yeand bye. We knowv ta
God never makes a miistakew. IElisha
saidl before he dlied that he was in
the hands~ of the Lord, and we feel
satisfied that he was. Ile has an.

In these dark days of turmoil and

d in trouble, and lift's sinking sU
rems to be going down without any
ope of ever rising again, and when
he beautiful leaves and flowers of *
fe, which once shed their sweet frag..
aince on the liv&'s of millions, seem
o he fading away, do we all not see
nd fe.l that kindness is much need..
d? I )o we not all feel that we have
eetded its i resence more in our own
ves? Friends. as you read this, do
ot think that I am trying to get
ou into a trap, for I humbly confesa
an not, but if I can help you on
fe's journey, with a few sugges
ions, I have reason to believe ' u
ill appreciate these words. Fathern
nd mothers, may 1 ask you to be
imd to your children. The kind
reatment you give them will never
e lost. I am sorry I have ever
poken an unkind word. Friends, did
on know that there are inilliens of
oys and girls away from home today
ecause they were unkindly treated?
hall I say more? There are til
ions on those far off burning shores,
aecause they were treated unkindly.
loys, girls and children, be kind to
ur fathers and mothers; they will
ot be with you always. Many of
rou know me, and if you wi,1 pardon
ne I will give a word of testimonw.
'welve Nears ago I was a lost mat,
far out' on the mountains, so bleak
and so cold. I sought rest; no res6
could be found; I sought a place to.
rest my weary feet, but the way was
slippery. I cried, I prayed, all seem
ed to be dark. I kept praying and
pleading with God until His dear
Son came and lifted the load and set
me free. Since that time I have
been in touch with Him. The desire
of my heart has been to treat every
person kindly. Friends, I want to
o to heaven when I leave this world.
tiany of you that read this may be
liscouraged with your life. Let mo
)Oint you to .Jesus; He will take the
oud and h2lp you to be more kind.

wayer to manifest the spirit of kind
less. We are so drained and weaken

i> we are not savad, a sin princi
