It is with sadness that we pen the
death of departed friend, but such
is the sad duty that befalls us this
week. "In life we are in the midst
of death." We see loved ones pass
ing away day by day, and well
might we say that we know not the
day nor the hour when the Son of
Man shall come and call for His
own. And when death does come,
mere is something that draws us
nearer together in sympathy and
love to the ones that are left behind,
than anything else In this world.
On last Friday night, at 9 o'clock,
the spirit of Mrs. N. E. Watson took
its flight back to the God who gave
it. She had been ill for only ten
days with pneumonia, and she was
in the Goth year of her age. She
leaves a husband, Mr. F. M. Watson,
and four sons, three of whom are
living in Georgetown, Tex., also one
sister, Mrs. Brunette Pickard, living
in Parker county, Texas. The
funeral services were held at the
residence Sunday morning at 10
o'clock by Revs. D. T. Waynick and
W. T. Ussery, after which the re
mains were followed by a large con
course of relatives and friends to
beautiful Rose Hill Cemetery, and
there they were tenderly laid away
by loving hands to await the resur
rection mom. We extend to the be
reaved family, with a hostof rriends,
our heartfelt sympathy in this sad
and dark hour, and may an All-wise
Providence guide them until they
are finally re-united in that beauti
ful home of the blfst, where there
will be no more parting with loved
ones, but where there will be joy
and gladness for evermore.

say, is at this writing in a very feeble
