The Kaiser's Talk to Hell.
The Kaiser called the Dovil up
On the telephone one day.
The girl at central listened to '
All they had to say. ;
Hello, she heard the Kaiser's voice,
Is the old man Satan home? .
Just tell him that it is Kaiser Bill '
That wants him on the phone.
The Devil said, Hell, to BillT ;
And Bill said, How are you?
I am running here a hell on earth,
So tell me what to do.
What can I do? the Devil said;
My dear old Kaiser Bill.
If there is a thing that I can do
. To help you I sure will.
The Kaiser said, Now listen
And I will try to tell
The way that I am running
On earth a modern Hell.
I've saved for this many years ,
And I've started out to kill
That it will be a modern Job
, You leave to Kaiser Bill.
My. army went thru Belgium
Shooting women and children down
We tore up all her country
And blowed up all her towns. '
My Zepps dropped bombs on cities,
Killing both the old andyoung.
And them the Zeppelin didn't get
Were taken out and hung.
I started out for Paris
With the aid of poisonous gas..
The Belgiums, darn them, stopped us
And would not let us pass.
My submarines are devils,

Why, you should see them fight,
They go sneaking thru the seas
And will sink a ship on sight,
I was running things to suit me
Till a year or o ago,
When a man called Woodrow Wilson
Wrote me to go more slow.
. - -,v -He
says to me, dear William,
We don't want to make you sore,
So be sure to tell your U-boats
Not to sink our ships no more.
We have told you for the last time
So, dear Bill, It is up to you.
And if you do not stop it . ,
You have got to fight us too.
I did not listen to him
And he's coming after mo
With a million Yankee soldiers
From their homes across the sea.
Now that's why I've called you Satan
For I want advice from you.
I knew that you would tell me , .
Just what I ought to do.
My dear old Kaiser William,
There's not much for me to tell.
For the Yanks will make it hotter
Than I can for you in Hell.
I've .been a mean old DevU,
But not half as mean as you,
And the minute that you get here
I will give my Job to you.
I'll be ready for your coming.
And I'll keep the fires all bright
And I'll have your room all ready
When the Yanks begin to fight.
For the boys in Blue will get you
I have nothing more to tell,
Hang up the phone and get your hat
- And meet me here in Hell. ?

In Loving Memory.
Our Lord in his infinite wisdom
saw fit to call from earth to glory
the spirit of A. B. London on Sun
day morning, April 7, 1918, making
an end of pain and affliction which
he had , borne with cheerfulness and
without complaint for the last two
years. Of course he had a desire to
live longer with his dear companion
and little children, but had express
ed himself several times as willing
and ready to go if it was the Lord's
will. As life was almost gone, with
feeble voice, -: he repeated Paul's
words, "I am now ready to be offer
ed, and the time of my departure is
at hand. I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course, I have
kept the faith; henceforth there is
laid up for me a crown of righteous
ness." '
His body was laid to rest in Mar
tin Cemetery. -
Barry, as we say, was born near
Crystal in Obion County, Tenn., on
April 28, 1862, making him 45 years,
II months and 11 days. When a
young man he married Miss Sue
Russell, of near Union City. He
professed faith in Christ early in
manhood and Joined the Missionary
Baptist Church. A few years ago
he felt impressed that the Lord had
called him to preach the Gospel. He
was ordained as a minister at Bethel
Church. Very soon ho moved his
family to Martin, Tenn., for (he pur
pose of preparing himself more fully
to preach the gospel and be more
useful in leading sinners to Christ.
This seemed his greatest desire to
be used by the Lord. His health
soon failed him, which kept him
from preaching as he desired, but
he did much pergonal work which
we feel did much and lasting good.
We will ever cherish with sacred
thoughts the memories of his being
in our home so often, the happy and
cheerful disposition he possessed,
full of Christian religious influence.
His whole conversation being on the
Bible. How he gave so many passages
of scripture so beneficial to the
Christian In every day life. Also

the earnest prayers he prayed with
us in our family circle, all these are
more evidences of his faith in God.
He leaves a devoted wife who
stood by him in evey ill, three boya
and three girls, one sister and three
brothers, with many friends and
relatives to mourn his going away.
It seems hard for dear Sue and little
children, yet we must say God's will
be done. But we who believe in God
knowthat while the home on earth
is sadjr a soul 1$ rejoicing in heaven.
We believe he is not dead but has;
only taken possession of a 'real life,
life everlasting. We must not sor
row because he is gone from us, but
rejoice in the thought of the bright
crown all burnished for him, the
mansion made ready, the white robe
prepared for him, there is eternal
glory foor . him. God is able to do
much and lasting good from this
noble Christian life he has lived,
with the many earnest prayers he
has lifted to our Lord. We pray that
his loving Christian influence toward
God may bear much fruit in year
to come thru the lives, of. his dear
children. And may God be rich in
blessings to the dear wife and chil
dren. Just a few more troubles,
Just a few more days till we'll clasp
his hand in a brighter home where
there beno more good-bye.
