Tender and sweet and fragile, the blight of fever came, and for many months the spirit hovered be' tween earth and heaven. The morning of life returned, and the intervening months brought full ness and sweetness.

The only thing worth doing, is doing good, and permit to say of all organizations known among men and women, none are doing more good, (the Church always excepted) than the great organization you represent The Woman's Christian Temperance Union. Among its many lines of usefulness, it has been a- powerful factor for good, and I am not exaggerating or indulg ing in mere compliment, when I say the W. C. T. U. has been directly re sponsible for more good legislation in the various States, than any other or ganization social purity laws, laws against narcotics, temperance enact ments, laws in the interest of children, curfew laws, and laws along all lines of social and civic uplift. In my own strenuous official life, I could not al ways count on the outspoken support of many men .who should have been on my side, but I could always count on the members of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. God bless the W. C. T. U. and make it a still greater hand-maiden of His. Sincerely, E. W. Hoch.' The above letter was greatly enjoyed by the Union; each mentaUy resolved to be worthy the praise. The next meeting will be July 19, at the New Church Chapel at 3 p. m. A full at tendance is urged. HAIR QUICKLY STOPS FALLING. In Memory of W. M. Ferguson. William Moore Ferguson was born near Russetivjlle, Ky., July 19, 18612 moved with his widowed mother, three sisters and fo ur brothers to Obion Coun ty in 1872 and had made his home here since. His death occurred June 19, 1912. He was married in young manhood to Miss Mollie Ford, of Dyer County, a niece of the late Mrs. W. L. Odom. There were five children born of this union, three sons and two daughters, Zelma, the eldest dying in babyhood. Those surviving are Miner, Jim, Law rence and Annie, who was the apple of her father's eye and who never tired in her ministrations during her father's long feebleness. His health had been failing for several years, and all that a most devoted wife, loving children and kind friends could do was done, but ap parently to no avail. His work was done, his spirit returned to the God who gave it. He was a quiet, unassuming man, a deep thinker, not emotional, but true as steel to his attachments, a loving husband and father, a true friend and neighbor, always ready jto give of his time or means to any who were in need. He was not a member of any church but gave repeated evidence during his last few days that he was ready when God called. But oh what a sadness his going, has caused in his home and among his loved ones. May they all live so they may, when the time cpnies to go, join him in that home not made with hands eternal in the heavens, where there is rib sickness or death and where all tears are wiped away. ' A large concourse of friends followed the remains to Antioch Tuesday morn ing where funeral services were held, conducted by Bro. Huey, after which he was laid to rest in the graveyard near by.
