On Friday, August 19, at 7 a. m.
the death angel visited the happy
home of Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Wallace
and took away their darling baby,
Ida Mao, the joy and sunshine of
their home. She was born January
17, ,1910, and died August 19, age 7
months-and 2 days.
During her short life she was never
ill until a few days ibefore her death.
After suffering four days, she passed
away and waslaid to rest in the Mars
Hill cemetery. She always woPi a
swoot smile, which will be sadly
mis ed; and the home has lost` .
jprecious treasure which can never be
replaced. :It w:as hard to give up the
little darligg, but, :"The Lord giveth I
and the Lord .taketh away. Blessed
be the name of the Lord."?
W-Veep not, dear parents, for your darling,
A preciousgift to you was given;
Although her days with you were few,
She budded on earth to bloom in heaven.
Yes, she IHas gone not to return;
And is a shining star on your way.
So live a life that's humble,
And you can go to her dome day. .

of A decided monotony breaker was
n, pulled off last Saturday night when a
ir crowd of young men endeavored to
entertain a crowd of "fair ones" on a
ig hay-ride to the Natatorium. Two
x. large wagons were brought forth to
n accommodate the combined forces,
and even then, space enough to exist
. safely was a thing greatly in demand.
,n After an hour spent at the pool
n which seemed to be enjoyed im
mmensely, the crowd journeyed
s homeward, and, on reaching town,
s. anchored at Drewett's Confectionery,

e another hour, during which time the
g people were treated to several vocal
of selections of various kinds, rendered
e in such manner that they have pos
L1 sibly been equaled but never sur
e passed by a hay-riding crowd. Having
s grown tired of this sort of amuse
- mont, they were then ushered into
the new City Cafe where iced melons
s were served most recklessly. Those
participating on this occasion were:
Misses Ottice Barnes, Mabel and
Sanna Handy, Clara and Callie Long,
Corine Milburn, Ethel. Burnette,
