ICev. W. It. McKennon.
On last Sunday morning at 0
o'clock Rev. W. R. McKennon went
to his heavenly home, lie was In
the sixty-seventh year of his age.
For several weeks he had languish
ed on the bed of sickness, and when
the final summons came he went as
composedly and peacefully to sleep
in the arms of his Saviour, as a lit
tle babe closes Its eyelids in slumber
and nestles to rest on the bosom of
its mother. To many of his most
intimate friends his death came as
a great surprise, and to everyone it
brought a feeling of sorrow at part
ing with one so universally loved.
With his departure there is
brought to a close a life truly of a
most exemplary character; a life
devoted to doing good; in the up
building of his Father's kingdom on
earth: in helping weak and erring
humanity. With an unfaltering
trust, he labored untiringly in his
Master s vineyard, and followed
teadfastly in the path of the meek
nd lowly rsazarene. The law or
love dwelt in his heart, and the
milk of human kindness," flowed
through his every vein. Kind-
hearted, true, charitable, gentle, he
gained the love, the respect, the ad
miration of everyone, ana drew
about him a large circle of loving
friends. In religious belief he was
a Methodist, being, at the time of
his death and for many years or his
useful life, a local preacher, going
about doing good, supplying vacant
pulpits, without the thought or hope
of reward, other than the better
ment of mankind and the approv
al of his Master. For four years
past he had been Register of Maury
County, md served in thtt position
as he did all others, conscientiously,
and to the entire satisfaction of all.
He leaves surviving him an aged
wife, two brothers, and the follow
ing children: Mrs. Andrew Gray,
of Mt. Pleasant; Mrs. Charlie Davis,
of Ashwood ; Mrs. Edward Coe, of
Raltimore; Messrs. W. JB. and Geo.
K. McKennon, of this city and Mr.
Charlie McKennon, of Waco, Texas.
His brothers are, Messrs. Leroy
McKennon, of Smyrna, Tenn., and
Jas. McKennon, of this place.
Unbidden tears will come when
those we love are taken from us,
and sympathy must be felt for those
who weep, isut sucn a lire roos
grief of its heaviness and illumines
the way of hope, and gives such
comfort as can come from no other
urce; for we all do know that he
has "fought a good fight, that he
has keut the faith, that he has run
his course, and that henceforth
there is laid up for him a crown of
The funeral services were conduc
ted Monday morning at 11 o'clock
in the First Methodist Church by Dr.
I). C. Kellev. assisted by Revs. F. R.

ing place wlih Masonic honors.
The following were pall-bearers:

Geo. Nichols, W. P. Woldridge, H.
L Hendley and J. F. Wiley.
Mrs. Maude Church Harrow.
The remains of Mrs. Maude Church
Barrow whose sad death was
announced in last week's Herald
reached here from Forest City, Ark.,
last Saturday at 10 a. m. An excep
tionally large number of friends met
the remains at the depot and fol
lowed them to Rose Hill Cemetery,
where loving hands tenderly laid
them to rest in the bosom of the
universal mother. Thefunera1 ser
vices were conducted by Dr. D. C.
Kelley, who made a few touching
and appropriate remarks and de
livered a beautiful prayer. The
pall-bearers were Messrs. C. A.
Purktr, VVm. Cliaffln, Edgar Latta,
A. B. Rains, Ed Turner, U. H. Fos
ter, R. P. Dodson and James An

Fe, in this county, and resided here
until her marriage to Mr. E. J. Bar
row, brother of Mr. J. D. Barrow, of
this county, several years ago, when
she moved to Arkansas. She was a
daughter of Mr. R. C. Church, of
this city, and her mother, who was
Miss Elizabeth Oakley before her
marriage, died while the deceased
was a mere child. Mrs. Barrow,
though young, was a devout, Chris
tian woman, spotless in character,
loving, gentle and kind. To the be
reaved father, husband and little
child, tli9 deepest sympathy of her
many friends is extended.
Mm. Mary Elizabeth Cole.

ter, Mrs. W. C. Whitthorne, in West
End, last Saturday evening, in the
(7th year of her age. Deceased had
been a great sutferer from rheuma
tism for years, and death came as a
sweet relief to her pain-racked
bodv. Mrs. Cole was the widow of
the late P. C. Cole, who died in 1894.
She was a member of the First
Methodist Church of this place, and
was a consecrated christian woman.
1 he greater portion of her life was
spent in this county, and she so
lived as to gain the love and respect
of everyone with whom sue came in
contact. She leaves surviving her
two sisters Mrs. W. M. Voorhies
and Mrs. Albert Alexander, of this
cnuntv, and an only daughter, Mrs.
W. C' Whitthorne.
The funeral services were conduct

The tire began about 3 o clock in

A startling incident of which Mr.
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I wa in a most dreadful condition.
My tikin was almost yellow, eyes sun
ken, tongue coated, pain continually In
the back and sides, no appetite gradu
ally growing weaker day by day. rhree
physicians had given me up." Fortu
nately, a friend advised trying 'Elec
tric lhtters,' and to my great joy and
surprise, the tirst bottle made a decided
improvement. I continued their use
for three weeks, and am now a well
man. I know they saved my life and
robbed the grave of another victim." No
