When death comes to the eged and

ist's allotted spao have borne the bur
den and enjoyed the pleasures of 1'fe?
it soems fitting that, "as a shock of
corn in its season"' they should be
gathered in tho great Garner Above.
But when tho useful, tho faithful, the
good and true arc snatched away Jong
before their noon-tide, wo cannot un
derstand, we can only in submission
say, "Even so Fathor, for so it seemed
good in Thy sight."

man: earnest, willing, competent,
faithful to duty and loyal to (Jo.I. Left
motherless when a few years o"d, he
was given to the care of his uncles,
James and Robert Bell and his aunt,
Miss Sallie Boll. Their careful train
ing was repaid in later years by his
faithful attention; when Miss Sallie
became an invalid with untiring devo
tion and tenderness he made life happy
for hor until sho was called "up high
er." He was a man of splend d physi
que, of fine ability, an enterprising and
successful farmer. Ho loved his Bible
and its precepts wero the guide of his
life. In his death his Church loses a
liberal supporter and the poor around
tholr best friend.
His hoautlful home is desolate and in
the hearts of the many who loved him
thero ii an "aching void" that none
can fill, Ho lived for the right and
met h's seeming untimely death In an
oll'oot to concilia'e between parties.
"Blessed aro the peace makers, for
they shall bo called the children of
Ho i3 gone. The Father who is "too
wise to err and too good to willingly

White Stone Lithia Water!
Is the lightest water on the market. We realize that this is claiming a groat
doal, and we could not afford to make this insertion unless wo knew that we
could prove it to be true. But it does not tako an expert to test the roftness of
a Mineral Wator. When carbonating a mineral water, if it is a hard watir the
gases will not bo absorbed In the wat r, and when the bottle is opened, the gas
es escape, and the water is loft Hat and hard, whilo If it is a soft water, like
White Stone Lithia, it will ro'aln Its gasos for hours after being unstopped.
Read whatsomo prominent persons you know nave to say of tho merits of
the White Stono Ll'hia Water:
Greenville, S. C, Oct, 10, 1008,
After a servico of ono season nt

dent physician I do not hesitate to say
that tho effect of tho water upon those
who diink it for any length of time,
has been porfectly marvclou?. Invari
ably an Increase both In llosh and ap
petite WBs porceptible in one week,
proving it to bo a mineral wator of
undoubted powerful tonic property, its
peculiar adaptability to diseases origi
nating from dlsordors of the kidney,
bladder and liver, such as Dropsy,
Bl ight's diseases, Diabetes and uric acid
calculi, and all forms of Dyspopsla,
Rheumatism and Gout is to bo ex
pected from the splondid analysis. It|
has been noted frequently that visi
tors before coming here had to follow
evtry meal with some form of correc
tive, or confine themselves entirely to
predigested foods; soon discard these
entirely, being delighted to find that
the water alone?nature's omd remedy
sufficed. Of tho many who drink this
water this season for ten days consecu

benefit and a perceptible gain in wclgt,
