Dentil of Harold Grant.
Earle's Grove, March ll-Special:
The sad death of Harold, the 15-year
old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Grant,
occurred at their home near Earle's
Grove on March 4th. Ho had been
in bad health for about three years,
being a victim of tuberculosis, and
a few days before his death he con
tracted pneumonia, and' his suffer
ing ceased, and he was transported
to that happy home above. He was
a faithful member of the Sunday
school and a regular attendant at)
church services as long as he was
able to go. In his last hours he put.
his arms around his father's neck
and said, "Papa, you havo done all
that you can do, and now I pray
that Jesus will take me home." The
funoral was conducted by Rev. Jas.
Mason, aftor which his remains were
laid" to rest in Earle's Grove ceme
tery. The pallbearers woro his two
brothers, Leland and Lesley Grant,
and two cousins, Clay and Darris
Grant. The funeral was largely at
tended and the flori.1 offerings were
beautiful and extensive.
There are many in this and othor
communities who will join with us
In extending to the bereaved ones
sympathy in their hour of sorrow.
"Blessed aro the dead which die
in the Lord from henceforth, yea,
saith tho Spirit, that they moy rest
from tholr labors; and their works
do follow thom."-(Hov. 14:13.)

next month. Th? young lady, whose

give* her an opportunity to enjoy,
mighty pleasant trip as tho guest of
our Capital City, but she will also
haye an equal chance with, the rep

the State to bo chosen Queen of the
Palmafesta Celebration-- and inoi-1
dentally to be the recipient af a .$6.0?
ring, the gift o? tb,e promoters ??
the Palmafesta Celebration.
Interest is picking up. We have
heard Of lots of people who are tak
ing in coupons wherever they can
get them. They are going to be used
for some one of Oconee's prettiest
and most popular young ladies. Are
you interested-directly or Indirect
ly? Get busy and use all the voting
coupons you eau get for the young
lady of your choice. Two Walhall*
young ladles have been nominated
by friends. Don't let the plum fall
Into the lap of one of the Walhalla
girls without making an effort to get
it for some young lady of your homo
town or community. Some, girl 'lu
