On last Friday night, as the stars
were putting forth their light, the dark
Angel of Death descended upon the
home of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Dooley and
claimed for its own their dear loving
niece, Miss Etta Brazier. She had been
con tilled to her bed for three weeks,
when an all-wise Father called her to
rest in His home forevermore. She
was 22 years of age, and hail been a
member of the Cumberland Presby
terian Church for eight years, living a
consistent member until her death.
She was the light and life of her
home, and none knew her but to love
her. She did not seem to fear death,
but said she was ready and willing to
go. What a blessing to think that we
can meet her in heaven, where there
will be no more parting nor shedding
of tears 1 To her heart-broken brother,
sister, uncle and aunt, we extend our
heartfelt sympathy, and bid them sub
mit to the will of our Heavenly Father,
who doeth all things well. The funeral
services were conducted by Bro. Gray,
and she was laid to rest in the Hardi
son graveyard, to await the resurrec
tion morn. Little Stranger.

The Mount Lebanon Shakers recently
performed a great deed of charity, al
though it was not designed as a charity,
being nothing more nor less than an
advertising scheme. It however re
sulted in great good just the same. They
gave away 1,000 bottles of their Diges
tive Cordial to those suffering from
stomach derangements. It was so
effective in curing those who used the
remedy that they were loud in their
praises or it and in consequence a large
demand for the Cordial was at once creat
ed. Tne druggists of this town have
little books that tell all about it. Diges
tive Cordial creates an appetite, aids c'.l

It may be worth something to know
that the very best medicine for restor
ing the tired out nervous system to a
healthy vigor is Electric Bitters. This
medicine is purely vegetable, acts by
giving tone to the nerve centres in the
stomach, gently stimulates the Liver
and Kidneys, and aids these organs in
throwing ore impurities in the blood.
Electric Bitters improves the appetite,
aids digestion, and is pronounced by
those who have tried it as the very best
