On Tuesday morning Watt McCain dosed his eyes upon things terrestrial to open them oil things celestial. While bis death-was not unexpected, he having been constantly sinking from •a stroke of paralysis received some months ago. yet n came as a severe shock io tho entire community, wno had been hoping against hope that the insidious affliction might ho arrested and he be restored to his former excel* lent health. His long illness and last days on earth were alieviuteu of much ot the suffering and pain bv th» l iving mini sirations and tenner care or his uevoteu wife and cLJureu, physician and friends, who did a.ll in rrortul power to stay the hanu ol the gi un uestruyer and to cocUiouic » hater it loving »oIi citude could devise for the comfort of the sufferer. .It was not a,formal token of respect that brought to the residence at 10 -o'clock Wednesday morning a large .crovrd to attend the funeral services of this beloved and esteemed citizen. It was not just a token of sympathy to the sorrowing and bereaved lamilv. It was more than these. It was the ge nuine sorrow of.those that mourned on their own accounts; those who felt that in Mr. McCain's passing they had suffered a personal loss. The im pressive funeral services were con ducted by Dr. J. B. Hutton, of Jack son, and Rev. T. T. Koopman, pastor • of the Presbyterian church here, of which deceased was a faithful and con sistent member. Dr. Hutton preached .a most touching sermon, of solace and comfort to the sorrowing family and friends, pointing them to the blessed Savior, "who captive led captivity, wber robbed the grave of victory and took the sting from deatb" and had .gone before to prepare a place in "His bather's house of many mansions" for all who remained faithful on earth. Rev Koqpman concluded the services at the grave in Odd Fellows ceme tery. The casket and the new made mound were heaped with beautiful flowers—those silent but expressive emhlems of immortality—tributes of love and respect from sorrowing neigh bors and friends. Deceased was of tbe highest type of Christian citizensnip. His chief char acteristic was his generous, loving and lovable disposition, and bis love of justice and right. There was no sham or hypocritical cant in his life, his walk or - his conversation, but he was always true, honest, genuine, sincere and charitable. He was eminently just in his estimate of human character .and was rarely decei ved by external ap pearances. He readily detected any humbugging and charlatanism that anight be concealed under tbe cloak of tself-assumed sanctity, nor did the werdict of the unthinking blind him to ithe divine spark that struggled in the breast of the outcast or sinner. Ho was eminently charitable and kina and .freely gave of his substance, with out .any ostentation or display, to the poor and needy. Judging a tree by its .fruits, the life of Watt McCain was a magnificent one and crowned with sucuess, because he,completely measured up to .the standard which is set up for us afi! in the Holy Scriptures that ''he that hath compassion upon the poor lendeOh to the Lord, and that which he hafth promised he will repay again. It was such treasures as these .he had laid up, and has won for him a crown of righteousness, because at was his desire im his own humble way to be a it | Very Latest in Easter THIS IS A f(/h(f/3ee//a£ Bonnets On next Thursday and Friday im KING BRINS MADE MERCANTILE CO. mm'rm ,\Y\ .

As the pressure of so ever intensify ing struggle tor existeoce forces the conviction upon tbe minds of all think ing people that the cause of our pres ent world-wide industrial depression may largely be found in the disloyal and traitorous conduct of many, whom the people have heretofote entrusted with office, it evidently becomes the duty of every citizen who as .such, should have the welfare of the people at heart to contribute his mite towards tho selection for office of only such men whoso record is free from the taint of having wilfullv and tor personal sel bsh purposes, violated their former voluntary assumed sol.am obligations, Ihe death of Senator Sample will soon devolve upon-the citizens of Holmes county the duty ot electing bis successor. And, since tbe only assur twice of loyalty to tbe people's interest will be here, as in all other elections, in tho performance of the solemn obli Rations that will be taken by those chosen therefore, in the exerciso of my riRht as a citizen, and to enable the citizenship of our county to choose in telligeutlv, 1 shall deem it tuy duty to lift the veil of hypocracy from some who may aspire to that office, and against whom I have wiitten and now hold legal proof,of having for sel fish personal purposes violuted the most so i eiun obligation ever taken by man.
