A Pastor Pounded.
Of old the people of Accomac have
had a hearty way ol' making the new
pastor welcome among tiiem, and
also of showing appreciation of the
old one. In trying to decide which I
am, I am a little like tho puzzled
Dutchman. In November 1874 I took
my first appointment in the Virginia
Conference and I was sent to Poco?
moke and Saxes. Since that time, I
think, I have spent 14 years in Acco?
mac County. But this is my first ex?
perience as pastor ol this charge. So,
although I have Known many of the
people tor 30 years, I suppose I am
Hie new pastor. They have welcom?
ed us heartily and are showing ever;
evidence of appreciation. In addition
to many other kindnesses shown, the
citizens of Bloxom and tho nearby
country came last night and gave ue
a good pounding. Some that were
not .Methodists united in this generous
act. We are very thankful and pray
God's blessings on all.

In loving remembrance of our dear
father and mother, John \V. and
Margaret Kelly, who departed this
life in tho year of 1907. Mother Jan?
uary 18th, father August Kith.
Dearest parents, how wo miss you,
Miss you more than hearts can tell;
Every nour and day that passes,
Brings us nearer with you to dwell.
Friends may think we'll soon forget
And our wounded hearts be healed,
But they little know our s >rrow
That's within our hearts concealed.',
Near two mournful years have vanish?
Thina wo whiie the teardrops start,
But the memory of you, dear parents
Still is treen within our hearts.
On this Christmas morn
How sad it will be,
When wo gather at our old homestead
And our clear parents we cannot see.
Oh! our dear ones, how we loved
Oh how hard to give them up,
But ai: angel came clown for ttiem,
And removed them from our Hock.
You are sleeping, gently sleeping,
Lying there in the silent grave,
Children you need not be weeping,
For our dear parents God will sure?
Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land;
We'll read the meaning of our tears,
And there, sometime we'll under?
By their children.

tor, Kev. G. M. Clayton.
Little George died September 24th,
and on the following day tho burial
service was read and interment made
in the Liberty Cemetery, Parksley.
Owing to the nature of the illness it
was deemed wise to postpone the
funeral service to a future date.
George was a very interesting child.
He was winsome. His lovable dispo?
sition made bim a gener?M?worite, as
a large crowd of aympatJptic friends
at the funeral attestecL#He liked to
go to church and Suiitm school, and
so quiet was he ioynie church that
one had to see him I'know that he
was present. His r'me-lifo was brief,
but "Even so if is not the will of
your Father wbirA is in heaven, that
one of these litf?'? ones should perisn."
