' '" II I Death of Mrs. Martha Hubbs. After a short illness of pneumonia Mrs. Martha E. Hubbs died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank C. Wehman, in Union City Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 14, 1915, at 1:30 o'clock. Mrs. Hubbs was the widow of John T.

In early youth she be came a convert and embraced the religion of her Lord and Saviour and ever after a devoted worshiper at the ehrine of the cross, joining the Methodist Church. Her life was consecrated and her devotion su preme, embracing the household and its many beautiful associations. She was a woman of large intellect and character withal, and her memory will live long to bless the descend ants and the community with whom Bhe walked and shed her kindness. The friends assembled at the resi dence of Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Wehman Wednesday morning and accom panied the lemains to Shady Grove where services were conducted by Rev. H. A. Butts and interment took place. Death of Kentuckian. F. H. Meador, father of our fellow citizen, T. B.

The members of the Co-Workers Circle of the Cumberland Presby terian Church were made sad on Dec. 9 by the death of one of their most faithful members, Mrs. J. D. Little ton. About ten years ago our asso ciation, as a member of this circle, began with her, which ripened into a pure, warm love. Our sad hearts rhave been made to ask again and again, can the grave end it all? No, no for "There in , love's unclouded reign, severed friends shall meet again." Her gentle, dignified, lady like manners and her chaste, cul tured and refined conversation will never be forgotten by us and we shall always cherish this beautiful flower of friendship that has bloomed and faded along our pathway, and expect some day, by God's help, to renew it in' "That land of pure de light." May her dear ones look up thru their tears to her God and find consolation and strength to sustain them in this the darkest hour of their lives. Committee: MRS. W. J. DAVIDSON. MRS. ZWINGLE. MRS.
