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*
His long illness and last days on
earth were alieviuteu of much ot the
suffering and pain bv th» l iving mini

friends, who did a.ll in rrortul power

.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
