SISTER LAURA KLINE On Aug. 28, 1915, the death angel visited the home of Mr. Roy Kline and took with it 'to a heavenly home the spirit of Sister Laura Kline, after many months of suffering, physician3 and loved ones doing all in their power to stay the sufferer, but the end came in spite of all human efforts to -save her. Sister Kline had been married a little more than two years. Their hopes and prospects were so bright for a long and happy life together. But, alas! After two short years of happiness and grim reaper has en tered that home and taken the life and sunshine from it. Sister Kline joined the Oklawaha Bridge Missionary Baptist church in October, 1910, and remained a con sistent member until her death, and it does seem strange and sad, that her life should be cut so short in the very dawn of womanhood, as she was only twenty-three years of age, but we are assured He doeth all things well and all His ways are right. Sister Kline leaves a fond young husband, a little boy one year old, a widowed mother, several brothers and sisters, besides a host of relatives and friends to mourn her loss, to whom we tender our deep and heartfelt sym pathy. Oh! loved one it is hard to give you up, Just in the prime of life; A young and fond devoted mother, A true and loving wife. God's ways are all mysterious ways, To us their aims unknown. But sometime we will understand Around ths great white throne. And now we all must say "FarewelL' So far as this world goes, But hope to meet her in that land That's free from teaia and woe-. Oh! dear one, watch for each of us. As with bowed heads we try to go Those things that God in time Will take us home to be with you. Respectfully submitted, Mrs. P. T. Randall, Mrs. R. D. McDonald, Mrs. T. W. Randall, Committee. IX E THOUSAND Oil A STRIKE DETERMINATION OF THE WORK ING MEN TO HAVE THEIR EIGHT HOUR DAY BENJAMIN L nULL Elder Benjamin I.
