too late for this afternoon's papers to
comment, they follow the morning pa
pers in saying Bulgaria, by her si
lence has definitely committed herself
to the Turco-Teutonic alliance. There
1 is, it is believed, little chance of Bui
garia being prevented from aligning
herself with the central powers and

are ready and a Russian squadron is
ready to attack Black Sea ports.
Bulgarian forces are lined up on the
Serbian and Greek borders. Athens

enue cutter has already chased and
fired at Greek sailing vessels. Athens
official dispatches say that the Bul

the convention with Turkey, seized
Christians who fled from the Turkish
army and turned them over to the
Turkish authorities, also sending
food and other supplies to Turkey.
There has been no official report re
ceived regarding the landing of allied
troops in Salonika.

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
Oh! loved one it is hard to give you
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.

EIGHT HOUR DAY
BENJAMIN L nULL
Elder Benjamin I. Hull, the pastor
and member of Oklawaha Bridge Bap
tist church, located near Lynne, FLa.,
Marion county, departed this life
Aug. 24th, 1915. He was born Dec
4th, 1846. In early manhood he unit
ed with the Missionary Baptist
church, and in Oct. 1872, he was or
dained to the full work of the minis
try by two pioneer preachers, Elders
T. S tana land and G. W. Langal
at Pleasant Plain church, near the
home of the deceased.
Elder Hull was married in early
ife to Miss Adeline Chalker, with
whom he lived happily to the day of
his death. By this union five children.
were born, one of whom, a son, pre
ceded his faithful father to the grave
in early manhood. Elder Hull was a
faithful servant of the Lord for many
years. In general deportment he was
humble, unassuming and unostenta
tious. His single aim in life was to
serve God and help his fellow man,
ever ready to visit the sick, to raise
the fallen and cheer the faint, belov
ed and respected by all who knew
him. He served as pastor a good
many churches in this county and
Sumter county, was a true Confeder
ate soldier and served his county sev
eral years as a member of the board
of public instruction, also taught
school several terms, giving good ser
vice, as a good many of the members
of this church can testify.
During the few days of his ailment
preceding his death, he bore hir af
fliction with Christian fortitude. How
ever, it was plain to be seen by
friends and loved ones that life and
death were struggling for the mas
tery, and on Tuesday of the date
above, death won the victory, when
his happy spirit disenthralled from its
earthly tenement and freed from the
sorrows and cares of a sin stricken
world, returned to the God who gave
it and his body was laid Us rest in the
family burying ground near his resi
dence, to await the recurrection of
the dead. He leaves to mourn his
death his faithful wife and three
daughters, rix: Mrs. Wm. P. Roberts,
Mrs. L.B. Griggs and Mrs. E. H.
Martin. His fourth daughter, Mrs.
Oscar Williams, went down to th
grave some years agd.
