On the evening of May 2, as the lovely day was closing, and tired na ture was gently drawing her cur tain down over the busy world, God in his infinite mercy wafted the spir it of our friend and neighbor, Mrs. Waddell Williams, to her eternal home. This good woman has gone to reap the reward of doing her Master's. will. Mrs. Williams was . a very quiet, modest Christian lady. She has done many kind deeds and Chris tian acts in her long, useful life. The ujuBi uettuuiui pun ui uer career w that she never let her right hand know what, her left hand did. She. was very conscientious and was. guided by the Golden Rule. She al ways weighed well whatever sho un dertook to do. Then she did as she would be done by. If she could help you carry your burdens and lay at tho cross of Christ she was ever ready and willing. Your humble writer knew her from sweet, experience and association with her and her noble generous, character. Mr. and Mrs. Willfama havo en Joyed many of life's blessings. Among the many I will mention One. They have never known the cheer- lessness and loneliness of death la their family. They rave raised a. family of six children to years of maturity and usefulness without & broken link, with the peace of God to aid and sustain them thru the rough and rugged. Journey of life. They were all permitted to be with, mother and tot cheer and comfort her thru the last days of suffering, and later to see her in the blessed assurance that her sufferings were nearing a calm and gentle close. The blesood Lord and Master was with her in the valley and the shad ow of death and his rod and hia staff they comforted her when earth ly help is done, which had been her stay all along the many varied vicissitudes of life. My friend had been In very feeble health for several years, though con fined to her room only a short time, perhaps ten or fifteen days. This good old tried and' true friend lies, resting in tho old Antioch Cemetery near Crystal, Tenn., to await the resurrection morn. ' I regret that feeble health was the cause of my absence at the burial and service" of one of my dearest friends. Though such is life. "Not my will but thino be done." Mrs. Williams was a member of the Methodist Church for- .several years. "Blessed are they that die In the Lord, for their works do follow taem. Mrs. Williams was born Jan. 16, 1850, aged over 68 years. She is survived by five daughters Mrs. Ida Miller, Illinois; Mrs. Addie Stephens. Missouri; Mrs. Adele Hudson, Miss Qra Williams, .Mrs. Tillio Rice, Ten nessee and one son, Charley Wal ton. ; . ANN McALISTER CLOAR.
