pointment at Southport on last Sun
day. Piaster Krnest Bishop has been sick

The death angel visited the home
of Mr. and Mrs. T. Wiley on the

victim the infant son. We sympathize
with them in their allliction, but they
should be comforted with the thought
that he now rests with the Savior, who
said, "Suffer little children to come
unto me and forbid them not, for of
such is the kingdom of heaven."
DcafnebS Cannot be Cured
by local applications, aa they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There Is
only one way to cure denfness, and that Is
by constitutional remedies. leafuess is
cuused by nil inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube.
When tills tube gets inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it Is entirely closed denfness Is the
result, and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to Its nor
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever; nine cases out ot ten are caused by
catarrh, which Is nothing but an Inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces. We will
give One Hundred Dollars for any ease of

Mt. Joy. Oct. 24. We are again called
to submit to the devine will of our
Heavenly Father. He has sent His
Angel of Death to the home of Mrs.
liellie Sim?, and borne away the sweet
spirit, or her daughter, Mrs. Kliza
liuthrie. wife of Cant. Robert Guthrb,
f Flat Wood, Perry county. She had
been in declining health the greater
part of this year, and had come back to
er old home, hoping to regain her
health. Her loved ones thought her
slowly improving until last luesoay
vening, when she was taken suddenly
worse, and at two o'clock death re
lieved her of her sufferings. The 1m
mediate cause of her death was
neuralgia of the brain. She was born
nu raised at this place, and was a
teacher for a number of years at this
nd other places in the county. Her
friends and pupils will hear of her
death with sorrow. She was a lovely
hristian woman, having professed
faith in Christ early in lire, ana a cte
voted wife and mother. She leaves a
husband aud four children three
bright little sons and one daughter just
budding into sweet womanhood a dear
old mother, sisters and brothers, and a
host of relatives and friends to mourn
her loss. Rut this loss is only her gain
for only a few days before her death
she said. "I am not afraid to die, for
know I am going to heaven." May uod
comfort the bereaved ones. After a
beautiful talk by Rro. R. I). Ricketts,
her remains were followed to their
resting place' by a large number of
sorrowing relatives and friends, and
laid to rest in the family burying
around at her old home.

Knob Cheek, Oct. 25. Last Saturday
morninc Just at the dawn of the day,
the sweet spirit of Miss Repta Rates
took Its everlasting flight from earth to
heaven to bask and bathe in the sun
light beams of her God. I'm sure the
angels must have come for her, for the
trace of a heavenly smile was left upon
her face; surely a heavenly vision must
have been the cause of that sweet, pure
smile. Would to God that all our faces
shall look so pure and christian-like
when it lies in death. Just a few min
utes before she died she must have
heard the heavenly train advancing,
for she called her mother and placed
her arm around her neck and embraced
her for the last time on earth, and soon
passed away. What a victorious death !
We sympathize with the bereaved ones;
may thev be prepared to meet beautiful
Repta in Rlory.

energy and without vitality, whenever
he finds that he is losing weight and
that his ordinary work gives him undue
