In Memoriam.
On the evening of Dec. 11, 1914, at
6 o'clock p. m., when nature's curtain
was thrown carefully over all the busy
whirl and confusion of t'je day, the
worthy subject of this sketch was quiet
ly and calmly released from her suffer
irfg and pain and the gentle spirit winged
iu way to the God who gave it.
A number of good and edifying verses
presented themselves to the writer on
receiving the sad intelligence of the
de&th and burial of this cousin and
friend, one of which was verj forcibly
impressed on my mind, 'I have been
with you in the sixth trouble and the
seventh I will not forsake." A'so the
23d Psalm was very beautifully illus
trated in the life and death of this
noted character who lived a very con
secrated and devoted life to her family
and frieuds, her church and her God.
She, before her failing health, was a
consistent member of the Cumberland
Presbyterian Church. She was a great
worker for and in the .church, and at
church benefits never allowed tired, bad
feelings to absent her from her postot
duty. I remember one incident. Addie
was the teacher of the bible class in the
Sabb'ath school for a number of years.
Several of the dormitory boys joined
her class. One day there was some
thing she wanted the class to memor
ize, I believe it was the Ten Command
ments. Being asked the question, if
all had bibles, one bright, promising
young man responded, that he had
none. The next day's mail brought
to him the coveted treasure. After re
ceiving it he hurried to my room to
show Aunt Ann the contents of the
nice little package containing a beauti
ful pocket bible with a dainty perfumed
note bearing best wishes for his future
welfare. I thought again of the precious
promises that awaits the final faithful,
"Cast thy bread upon the waters and it
shall be gathered many days hence."
And so forth and on, this life was full
Of just such deeds too numerous to
As tbe writer wended her way through
the assemblage of friends and relatives,
all the rooms and hall and back gal
lery crowded with friends of the de
parted, I was almost tempted to stop
and risk hearing the tender and pathetic
song they were singing preparatory to
farther service, when the thought came
to me of an expression of my dear old
father, which was that there was always
roojji for one more at the top rcund of
the ladder. Also a kind friend of miue
gently lent me a helping band to ascend
the steps. When seated I thought what
a blessing for one to live a life of use
fulness and try to let your light shine
that it could and did have an influence
for good and not evil all the way down
the journey of life. '
This dear girl bad many friends, and
kinsmen who did all they could to allevi
ate her suffering, which she bore so
bravely and with such fortitude, all tbe
while planning and arranging her plans
for the end that she was fully aware
of the fact that the time was stealthily
approaching when the messenger would
come for her to go to her eternal home.
Taking her time to quietly and with
tbe most resigned manner sue mads
final disposal of all her little treasures
of an earthly nature to those sbo felt
she wished to have them, then care
fully made ali arrangements prepara
tory to her eternal home.
So that is the final career of this
noble Rirl who looked so long to tbe
home interest and care of her dear,
patient mother, that never did tire of
doing, doing, trying, trying, watching,
watching, hoping against hope, yet
never tiringalways ready to try any
suggestion that could be rendered for
tbe better. I thought of the dear old
grandmother, Aunt Margaret Harper,
who loved Addie so dearly and rith
whom she lived until large enough to
go to school; how proud she would be
of her girl's biography. Her grandma,
who could see a long ways and all the
good points, was a woman of uncom
mon mind. '
Addie Gardner was born in Browns
ville, Tenn., Dec. 3, 1SC8, departed this
life Dec. 6, 1914, 6 o'clock p. m. She
leaves a devoted mother, one sister,
Mrs. Annette Boaz, and two brothers to
sincerely mourn her going onward and
upward to her eternal home.

"N. R. A. writes: 'i am 45 and do not have enough blood.
Will elixir of iron, quinine and strychnine be of any use?
What dose should be taken and how often? What would you
recommend as a blood builder and tonic?
"Elixir of iron, quinine and. strychnine constitutes a good
general blood tonic But poor blood is an effect. Generally
it is possible to find the cause. It is good judgment to treat
causes, not effects. Too many people dope with, iron tonic
year in and year out, when what they need to do to remove
the cause would not be difficult to discover or remedy.
' Sometimes it is hookworm, sometimes constipation, some
times indoor life, sometimes stomach ulcer, sometimes cancer,
sometimes bad eating habits."
The above article originated with Dr. W. A. Evans, health
specialist on the staff of the Chicago Tribune. Dr. Evans, in
the reply he makes N. R. A, is a CHIROPRACTOR all the !
way through the first paragraph of his answer. He turns
"doctor" again, however, in the last paragraph, where he looks '
to hookworms instead of SUBLUXATIONS as the "cause."
