To the Memory of Auut Patsie.
"I sometimes hold it half a sin
To put in words the grief I feel:
For words, like Nature, half reveal
And half conceal the 8041 within."
At six o'cloce ou March the
thirty-first as the .lay was closing,
a pure and noble life also closed.
Martha »S. Lackland (nee Eason)
died at the home of her nephew,
William Eason, near Wall Hill.
She was born July third eigh
teen hundred and thirty four,
near Huntsville, Ala, but at tire
age of four wus left an orphan,
and was reared by her eldest
brother, William, (father of the
above named) in the same house
in which she died, and in which
she was married titty years pgo.
At nineteen she married Dr.
Lackland, a fine and worthy gen
tleman. who lived only five or six
years and left her with two baby
girls; the younger of the two being
very delicate in a short time join
ed tier father in the belter wo 1
Aunt Patsie was now left
care for only one. Since slit
of an extremely affectionate dis
position, she centered her whole
heart upon her one child, Yen tie,
who was so sweet and gentle that
all loved her. O! what a devoted
mother she was. She gave every
attention that love and money
could bring to Cousin Yentie.
But alas! This last beloved must
leave too; the dreaded disease,
consumqtion, seized this fair,
young girl in the very bloom of
Notwithstanding all these deep
and trying sot rows, Auut Patsie
neither lost faith in, God nor her
naturally bright, disposition; in
deed she seemed to think that her
mission was to help and cheer
whomsoever she came in contact,
since she was without her own
loved ones. She always looked
on the bright side of life and help
ed others lo do this. I am sure
that every one will remember her
in this light, even the humblest
colored person who knew her.
It has been long a saying in our
family that Aunt P'aisie would
never allow any one to do more
for her than she could do for
These historical facts of her
life I obtained from Papa, who is
her nephew, who loved her as if
she had been his mother, and to
whom she was ever true. But
the facts that i have given of
personal character I have first
hand for I have lo ed to be with
her all my life; since ray earliest
childhood she has been one of my
ideals of a lady; she was very kind
and generous to everyone,
"vVe have loved, We will ffilss her.
The young as well as the old
And in memory dear we'll cherish her,
Until our hearts, too, grow cold."
Essie E. Eason.

Walks Without Cruiches.
I was much afflicted with scia
tica, writes Ed. C.Nud, Iowaville,
Sedgwick Co., Kan., "goingabout
on crutches and suffering a deal
of pain. I was induced to take
Ballard's Snow Liniment, which
relieved me. I used 3 50o bot
tles. It is the greatest liniment
I ever used; have reccommended
it to a number of persons, all ex
press themselves as being bene
fited by it. I now walk without
crutches, able to perform a great
deal of light labor on the farm."

while the grand jury isin session."
"The Lord will forgive you,"
shouted the preacher.

sinner, "but He isn't on the grand
