She Know Died., On Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, April 24, 1922, the dark winged angel of death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Ogles on South First street and took from them their precious little boy, William Nailling, who met his death by an automobile accident while crossing the street from one of his playmates to his home. - He was born Sept. 29, 917, age 4 years, 6 months and '25 days. He leaves behind father, mother, two brothers and two sisters besides oth er relatives and friends to mourn his loss. W. N., as we all called him, was a loving, obedient child and loved by all who knew him. There Lis a vacant place in that home and in his Sunday school, and a stilled voice is gone that we will never hear again But there is one- more among the bright angels rejoicing 'around the great white throne. 'Weep not, dear ones, for God said, "Suffer little chil dren to come unto Me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." We loved him, yes we loved him,. But the angels loved him more, He is sweetly resting On yonder sh'ning shore. Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on Hi3 gentle breast; . There by His love overshadowed Sweetly his coul shall rest.
