You can rarely get good soda
outside the United States. It is
a purely American drink, and is
tl;e ideal beverage. It is the one
drink that is everything a drink
should be cooling, refreshing,
healthful and Invigorating with
with not a bit of harm Id it.
We are talking ofMSoia
now of 8oda as good as it can
be. At Its best, Soda must be
more than a taste gratifler or
thirst satisfler; it must be just
as pure as the taste is good. The
making of such soda requires
proper apparatus, knowledge,
skill-and conscience. If you
want Boda that is all that it
should be, try ours.

Sarah Cornelia AVliite.
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis D. White had
the great misfortune last Monday to
lose by death their little daughter,
Sarah Cornelia, aged 14 months and
5 days. There is no pang equal to
that that comes to a parent's heart
when death claims their only child;
and yet there is sweet comfort in the
thought that its suffering is at an
end, and that it returns to its God as
puroand spotless as a suow-flake
fresh from u cloud, and that "of such
is the Kingdom of Heaven." The
funeral services were held Tuesday
evening at the residence bv R5vs. J.
H. Thompson and F. B Webb, and
a large concourse of friends of the
grief stricken parents followed the
remains to Rose Hill Cemetery, and
covered the little mound with beau
tiful flowers. The pall bearers were,
W. L. Davis, Maddiu Voss, Geo. S.
Alcorn and 11. H. Blair.
Little Rubie, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Joe B. Kerr, was born June 2(J,
1897, and died June 23, 1893. All
that loving parents, kiud brothers,
sisters and h skilled physician could
do were done for her, but ere the
first anniversary of her birthday
rolled arouud, she was plucked from
the field of humanity and planted
in the garden of Gd's love, to
bloom there in everlasting beauty
and fragrance. While it is painful
to give up our loved ones, it is sweet
to know they are at rest in the pres
ence of the Lord, for Christ said,
"Suffer little children to come unto
me and forbid them not, for of such
is the kinguon of heaven.'' The be-,
reaved family have the sympathy
of many friends. A FiilEND.
Kallterine Latta Jackson.
On last Monday afternoon at 1:30
o'clock the spirit of little Katherine
Latta Jackson, infant daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. James E. Jackson,
passed from earth and returned to
its heavenly home above. During
it short stay on earth the little life
had become endeared to the hearts
of its fond parents, and while the
absence of the little form will cause
deepest sorrow, we can but bow to
the wise providence or God and say,
"Thy will be done." The bereaved
parents have the sincere sympithy
of everyone. The funeral services
were conducted at the residence on
South High street Tuesday after
noon at 4 o'clock by Revs. D. C.
Kelley and W. A. Prviue. and the
interment took place in Rose Hill

in, opened the cash drawer and took

to work his game on him. Finally,
however, his power of speech was
