Cvllkoka, June Jo. Since our last
communication to the Hkkami, death's
heavy hand has been laid upon the
hearts in two of our homes. On Sun
day May :, ls7, Mrs. Marv Ann
Branch (nee Miss Mary Ann Uz.ell)
laid down the cross of earthly cares,
and her gentle spirit ascended to her
Hod. She was born July 13, 18'i't. She
was a noble christian, and a member of
the Methodist Church for about ill
years. In 111 she was married to Will
iam M. Branch. Her husband, seven
children, anil many grandchildren and
great-grandchildren are left to mourn
her death, and to strive to live a life like
that she so faithfully and religiously
Though death may not cross our own
threshold, nor take our loved ones
directly from our arms, the sting is no
less hard to bear. To the parents, sis
ters and brothers here came the sad
news of the death of Bradford C. Camp
bell at his home in Aubrey, Texas, on
JuneO, '!;. Mr. Campbell left Ten
nessee for Texas in September 1K8H.
December 24, 181 he married MissDovie
Holmes. In his three week's illness
with llux, he ever showed his patient,
christian spirit. To the dear ones here
and to the young wife mid two little
boys the testimony he left behind is in
deed a great comfort. As the mother
fondly said, "He was always a good
boy." lie feared not to die, but sang as
he'lay dying "Nearer My (iod to .Thee,"
and whispered at the last "rest, sweet
It seems that the world can ill afford
to lose two such good people as these,
but we must remember that to (iod
thev belonged. He loaned them to ns
and He has but claimed His own. He
will comfort the bereaved, anil will
make plain to them the justice and
mercy of His will.
While our hearts are full of sympathy
for our friends sad over t he death of their
loved ones, there comes to us sad news,
trouble in our own family. Tne wife of
lr. W. W. Fowler is dangerously ill at
their home in Hallinger, Texas. We
can but wait and pray that Sod may
spare her to her hush'iud and littleoiies.
