Lost, Man Found.
Considerable excitement was oc
casioned among our people last
Friday evening about da^k when it
became known that H. W. Stewart,
a venerable and respected citizen of
this place, had left home early in
the morning to go a short distance
from town to pick berries and had
| not returned. A party was organ
ized and left on the hunt of the lost
one and John Ferguson(who was in
a buggy) met Mr. Stewart coming
down Coal Branch bill. “Cnele
Wash” said he went up “Broad
l Hollow” and on to the bill south
of the hollow named and after hav
| mg picked his bucket full of ber-!
1 ries he started home, but getting
; bewildered took the wrong road and i
instead of coming toward town
went in the opposite direction and
when he had traveled for several
hours carne to Kd. Swanson’s
home on Docks crepk. He then
gave Mrs. Swanson his berries and
was wending his way home when
the searching party found him.
Mrs. Martha ft. Perdue.
Mr*. Martha A. Perdue, wife of
Jas. Perdue, departed this life July*
5, 1909. She leaves a husband and
six children, and many loving rela
tives and frieads to tuouru her
death. She had been afflicted for
several years, bearing it all cheer
fully and patiently, tr\ing all
remedies and medicines that physi
cians recommended for her diseases.
But when all failed she turned to the
“Great Physician’* aud He gave
her strength and comfort by his
presence Although desiring to
live on and rear up her little ones
in the right path, when she realized I
that death was near she began ,
making all prepara’ions for her
journey across the dark river of,
death. Calling her husband and
little ones around her si e would
talk to them of her assurance of
Hea\cn, exhorting them to meet !
her there and warning them of the 1
evils of this world. While all,
other eyes were bathed in tdars,
hers would shine as with the glorv
of another world. She ft'.so talked
to many relatives and fricn s about
their soul’s welfare. During her
29 years of life, 10 of them were
spent in the service of her Master
and he blessed her so by his pres
ence, that in her last moment when
Death was closing his dark mantle
around her aud struggling for vic
tory over her weak body she could
shout aud praise Hun, bringing to
our minds the words of the apostle I
Paul “Oh death where is thy
Sister Martha was a quiet, loving
woman, beloved by all who knew
her. Living quietly at home with
her husband and children she was (
ever following m the footsteps of
her Master by examples and pre
cepts. And while we mourn our
loss we feel it is only her gain and
that she is freed from all her
suffering and is with the Saviour.
Her funeral w as preached accord
ing to her request at the Dock’s
(.reek Baptist church, of which she
was a member, by ltevs Charles
Watts, Abraham Hutchison ami
Jerry Hariuon, after wdneh her
body was laid to rest in the Keyser
cemetery to await the resurrection.
Her husband desires to thank all
who assisted him during his wife’s
illness and death.
“Dearest wife thou hast left us.
And our loss we deeply feel,
But ’tin God who has bereft us,
He ran all our sorrows heal.
\\ e loved hor, yes we loved her,
But Jchuh loved ber more,
And he has sweetly called ber,
To yonder shining shore.
Vet again we hope to meet her,
When the day of lile is fled,
When in Heaven with joy to greet
Where no farewell tear is shed.”

I have found a tried and tasted mn for Rhetv

distorted limbs of chronic cripples, nor t«im bony I
growths back to flesh again. That Is Impossible. I
But 1 can now surely kill the pain. and of I
Ibis deplorable disease.
In Germany—with a Chemist in the City of I
Darmstadt—I found the last Ingredient with !
which Dr. Shoop's Rheumatic Remedy was made !
a perfected, dependable prescription. Without
that last ingredient. I successfully treated many,
many rases of Khoumatiam; but now. at last. It uni
focmly cures all curable cases of this heretofore
much dreaded disease. Those sand-like granular
wash's, found In Rheumatic Blood teem todissolva
and pass away under the action of this remedy ns
freely as does sugar when added to pure water.
And then, when dissolved, thgso poisonous wastes
freely pass from the system, and the cause of
Rheumatism Is gone forever. There Is now no
