The lives of both mother and child -went out during the ab sence of the father at about 5 o'clock Sunday afternoon and their lifeless bodies were first discovered by Mrs. Gus Ander son, a neighbor, who happened to call at the Ball home a short time-after the tragedy occurred, who at once "made known the terrible affair. The cause for the murder and suicide seems to be a mystery to everyone as there was no visible reason for the rash act, and it is possible that Mrs. Ball suddenly became violently insane and was not responsible for the crimes she commited. The officials of Gove county were immediately notified and a coroners inquest was held at the scene of the crime Jlate Sunday night, but no report of their ver dict has yet been made public, after which the bodies of both were prepared for burial by Mr. Straw and shipped to the home " BUILDING UP 'V.

No, he has not, but we lose power with God , by getting so far from him. Christ is the same Savior as when he was on earth. We have the command from our Lord, go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature; he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, these signs - shall follow them that believe.

Last Monday, the 2nd of May, at 10 o'clock a. m., Rev. E. D. Beason called to pray zor her healing and he went according to James v, chapter xiv, and verse xv, and annointed her, and while he was praying,,God wonderfully healed her, and she opened and shut her hands, and while rejoic ing said, "O papa, look at my hands." She arose from where she was sitting and walked all around the room shaking hands with friends who had gathered to witness the wonderful mani festations of the power of God. Rev. E. D.
