End or a Beautiful Life.
The human family soon becomes
reconciled when the death of an old
person occurs in a home, as the lines
on the face indicate that time is rap
idly passing for that one, and that
death is fastly approaching, hence
they are nerved for the final dissolu
tion. Not so when the young is called lor
persons of tender ages are living in
the body; they are constantly laying
plans for the future, believing that
they will get well. Their cheerful
ness cheers the loved ones about them,
and they, too, look upon the bright
side as long as there is life.
So it was with Mrs. Ruth Stults,
the beloved wife of Mr. C. T. Stults,
whose death occurred last Thursday
afternoon at 2 o'clock. A gentle and
lovely young matron less than 21
years old, answered the summons,
and while intently watching her hus
band and other loved ones about her
bedside, her life ebbed away and her
spirit went to God whom she loved
and obeyed.
She was a member of the Christian
Church, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
R E Tandy, of Georgetown, Ind.,
her mother being with her go the end,
her father arriving after death.
The funeral services were conducted
in the home, by her pas
tor, Eld. Z. T. Williams, Friday af
ternoon at three o'clock. The minis
ter paid loving tribute to her memory,
and admonished the sorrowing hus
band and all other relatives to be pre
pared to meet her in the celestial city
beyond the skies.
The interment was in the city cem
etery, and when the family and other
loved ones withdrew, her last earthly
resting place was covered with beauti
ful and fragrant flowers.
May the God of love comfort the
husband, father, mother, brothers
and sisters, and all other relatives is
the wish of this writer. -
Whlie the immediate family more
keenly feel this loss, the father and
mother-in-law, sisters and brother-in-law,
who affectionately loved her,
weep with son and brother.

Drowned in the Cumberland.
One day last week Herbert Wheat,
U years old, a son of Mr, W. D.
Wheat, who lives at Rowena, was
drowned In Cumberland river. We
learn from a Russell county gentle
man that the deceased, in company
with some other boys, were hauling
corn, and getting too warm, they con
cluded to go to the jriver for a bath.
The river had been up and the banks
were slick. In walking along the
edge of the bank, Herbert fell and
slided into the water which was very
deep. He could not swim, and in a
few minutes he went down the third
time. His friends were powerless to
save him. The alarm was given and
a drag for the bbdy commenced. In
about one hour it was found. He
was a popular young man and the
whole country is in sympathy with
the parents.

A Serious .Accident.
Last Monday morning Mr. J. C.
Strange, of the Republican office, was
preparing stove wood when his ax
glanced, the blade striking
his left ankle, cutting a deep gash
which will lay him up for a week or
ten days. Dr. Russell took several
stitches in closing the wound. The
wound was very painful, and being in
the ankle it will not mend as fast as
Mr. Strange and his friends would
like. It is hoped that serious compli
cations will not set up.
There is nothing that thrills a man

M
To the Ministers of Columbia,
If you are doing your duty,
a large majority of the
citizenship of this town, are judging
you wrongfully. In about four weeks
it is announced that a series of meet
ings will start at the Methodist
church and when they close the Bap
tist people will open one which will
continue through the month of Sep
tember. Young people must get
right before they will take interest in
religious exercises. We are not one
who believes that vice, any kind of
frivolity, can be squenched by abuse.
To put a stop to objectionable exer
cises, kindness must be used and a
superabundance of it. Meet the par
ties you are interested in, tell them
in loving words what the best people
think of their conduct, then tell
them what the course they are pur
suing leads to, refer them to their
sainted mothers if they have passed
through the veil, and the interest
they manifested in them while living;
and if they expect- to meet them in
the world beyond the skies, they
must change their course.
Some years ago there was a hop in
progress in a residence, not in this
town, and a pastor of some of the
participants entered the ball room.
The music ceased, and the minister
said: "All will please kneel for pray
er." When he closed there was not a
dry eye in the room. Suffice it to say
that was the last hop held in that
home.
Improving.
Mr. Geo. J. Hurt, who had the mis
fortune to get one of his hips broken

to walk. As soon as he is able to
travel he will be returned to the Sol
dier's Home, Dayton, Ohio.
The date for the coming of Dr
Frank Cheek, of Danville, and Dr. J.
R. Crawford, of Paducah, and the
pastor of the first Presbyterian
Church, Lebanon, will be Saturday
night 14th and Sunday the 15th of
August. They will hold interesting
services and every body is Invited to
attend the meeting. They will come
from Union Church to this place.

ftr.' Giifrer Bryant Dead.
O e of i he mest respected farmers
f litis county finished his life work
;i.t. Minaay morning when Mr. Gaith
nr Rrvant, aged SI years, crossed to
the other side. fuly prepared to meet
his God Ttie end came at his home
near Gleuville. He had been long a
member of the Baptist Church, and
when in health, he often exalted. He
was respected by every body for'' his
correct living.
When the war between the States
broke out he enlisted in the Confeder
ate army aud was in nearly all the
hard fought battles in the. South.
After the war he devoted his time to
farming.
He was a gallant soldier and when
the roll call for battle was sounded he
was always ready.
We heard Gen. -Jo Lewis say in this
town, while he was Circuit Judge,
that "Gaither Bryant was the bravest
man he ever saw." Continuing he
said: "He was the only man in my
command that I could not persuade
to lie dowa in a close and hotly con
tested fight. When I gave orders to
lie down, load and shoot, Gaither
stood up and deliberately loaded his
gun and fired during the battle."
The writer asked Mr. Bryant why he
did not obey orders." He said,'! was
marksman and when I took sight on
an object and fired, I knew that I
would hit the mark."
The burial took place in the ceme
tery on Mr. Austin Loy's farm, Mon
day morning, many relatives nnd
friends being present.
He fought a good fight and died an
honorable death. Peace to his mem
orysympathy for those who weep.
