Monday morning, the 11th lnst., at 7
o'clock, the Anurel of Death came Into
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Byrd
and claimed-their only son, a young
man of about twenty-three years; a
young man of excellent character and
a consistent Christian; a youag man
who will not only be sadly missed by
his mother and father and slaters in
the home, but by all who knew him.?
Wo feel that these are the kind of
young men we need in the home, In
the cnureh, and In the country; but
our Father In Heaven said it was
enough: Johnnie come up higher outof
a world of sorrow, care and trouble. I
want you to myself to enjoy the Man
sions 1 have prepared for you; to walk
the Golden Streets; to join your voice
in praise to the blessed Savior who re
deemed you with the blood washed
throng around my everlasting throne.
Oh! how sweet the answer to this
call from his Father. As the cold
hand of the death Angel was claiming
him ho said to his precious mother:
"Mama, I made my choice several
years ago, and now God has come for
mo and I am ready and willing to go.
Don't weep for mo." And then one oy
ono he called his father, mother and
sisters and bade them farewell and
went sweeping home to glory.
Blessed bo God for such a life and
such a death. No, not death, but just
the boginning of a lifo which shall
know no sickness, sorrow or trouble,
and whero thoro will bo no moro fare
"Asleep in Jesus Oh! how sweet."

Aside from these departments, the editorial
and contributed features of the Review or Reviews are themselves
equal in extent to a magazine. The Editor's "Progress of the World" is
an invaluable chronicle of the happenings of the thirty days just past,
with pictures on every page of the men and
women who have made the history of tbe month.
Tic Literary World says: "We arc deeply
impressed from month to month with the value
of tbe 'Review of Reviews,' which is a cort
of Eiffel Tower for the survey of the whole
field of periodical literature. And yet it lias a mind and voice of its
own, and speaks out with decision and sense on all public topics of
the hour. It is a singular combination of the monthly magazine and
the daily newspaper. It is daily in its freshness;
it is monthly in its method. It is Hie World

Is an "Acme" Machine made by the Acme Cycle Company, o'<
Blkhart, Indiana. The Winner of the Machine may make his
own selection from their catalogue.
The "Acme" Bicycles cost One Hundred, Ninety and Eighty

All you have to do is to get cash subscribers to The ADVERTISER.
Any boy ot girl can get subscribers. Any person young or old can get
this fine bicycle by making a little effort. A list of live subscribers may
win it. If a lady wins the bicycle she may get a ladies' wheel. Or she
may get a gentleman's wheel and sell it if she prefers.
It is a good plan to begin work at once.
As soon as you get a subscriber send in his name and the money so
that the paper may be promptly sent to him. State that you arc a con
testant for the bicycle and anaaccurate list will be kept of all the names
you send. Two half year or four three months subscribers w ill be
counted in the contest as one.
No Loss Possible.
Not Even of Time. "If I don't get the largest list I shall have had
my trouble for nothing" you say. No you won't cither. The adver
tiser will give at the end of the contest, except to the winner of the
bicycle, twenty-live cents for each subscriber sent in by a contestant.
So if you get forty subscribers you may win the bicycle. If you don't
you get ten dollars anyhow.
No person in any way connected with The ADVERTISER will be
allowed to enter the contest.
Don't lose a minute. Begin at once. Who gets the "jump'' lias a
