CORIM- & JACKSON In Memory. Last Wednesday afternoon, Au gust 10, 1921, at half past three o'clock, the peaceful Death Angel stole into the home of Mrs. L. E. Ed wards. Gunnison, Miss., and bore away on its pinions the tired and willing spirit of his faithful and de voted wife, May Morton Edwards. . In early years she gave her life to her Saviour, and left a clear testlmo ny that it was well with her soul. She oaid repeatedly to those around her: "Everything is all right. Every thing." . On July 4, 1897, she was united in marriage to Mr. L. E. Edwards, of Rosedale, Miss, Later they moved to Gunnison, Miss., where Mrs. Edwards became an active and earnest worker in the Sunday school and Missionary society of the M. E.Church of that place, serving faithfully until her summons to her home beyond the vale of tears "to an inheritance in corruptible that fadeth not away eternal in the heavens." The floral tributes of these dear people testified to their unlimited appreciation of her and her work among them. For several years she has been an active and esteemed member of the United Daughters of the Confedera cy, besides filling ably the office of Worthy Matron of the Eastern Star, of Gunni3on, Miss. During the World War she was chairman of the Red Cross work of Bolivar County, Miss., going from place to place in her car, delivering Red Cross addresses, on the conservation of food, and teach ing classes in cooking and knitting. She was always the first to enter homes of sorrow and distress, ad ministering comfort, and material aid, if necessary. Many people of the South will rise up and call her bless ed. For more than a year she had been in a state of decline, but never com plained ; always submissive to her Heavenly. Father's will in all - !'She is not dead, but "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," and when He comes "the second time without sin unto salvation" si3ter May will come with Him, clothed upon with immortality, for death shall be swallowed up in victory. "0 death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?" Thanks be unto God, who always leads us forth to triumphs through tho Anointed One. ' She had learned to "lean hard on the Everlasting Arms," and found them all sufficient. The following lines were read, re-read and loved y her during. the last few days of her life, and she was telling others to "lean hard." "Child of my love, lean hard, And let Me"Teel the. pressure of thy care. I know thy burden, child; I shaped it, poised it in mine own hand, Made no proportion in Its veight To thine unaided strength, For even as I laid it on I said, "I shall be near, And while she leans on mo, This burden shall be Mine, not hers." So would I fold my child Within the circling arms Of my own love. Here lay it down, Nor fear to Impose it, Which upholds the government of of worlds. Thou art not near enough; Yet closer come I would embrace thy care, So I might feel my child Reclining on my breast. Thou lovest Me? I knew it. Then doubting not 'lean hard.'" -We are "leaning hard," and grlevo not as those "who have no hope." Let us look unto Jesus, the author and fini3her of our faith, for in "That City" -we shall "know as we are known," and "tho toils of the road will seem nothing, when we get to the end of the way." A SISTER. Beelfoot Lake Road. The committee of the south ridge route propounds the query to the Clayton route committee: In the face of the fact that the district en gineer, Mr. McCombs, furnished by the State department to select route, made his report and the report was published in this paper July 15, why did the surveyor not follow his In structions? How will the benefit of State aid be secured for the Clayton route? A few points in comparison we submit as follows: The middle route passes five more homes, more valley land within a radius of three fourths of a mile, one-fourth the wa ter obstruction and one-eighth the levees. Is a levee road as good as a ridge road? The Clayton route will take the travel to Hickman, river crossing. The middle route will give Union City and Samburg a practical route.
