HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1919
"AUNT MAT" IS DEAD.
Comes the news from El Paso, Tes
tis, that Martha E. Coleman, known
hero to friends nml relatives alike,
as "Aunt Mat," died there June 10,
She was horn in Holmes county,
Mississippi, in 1S50, and was, there
fore, in her 69th year.
At the time of her death she was
visiting her step-duughter, Mrs. Jeff
Darnall, of the Texas city.
In obedience to her request, she
was buried where the end came.
And fittingly, perhaps, was this so;
for the cemetery at El Paso is u gar
den of fadeless bloom, and the silent
stars, through the clear, pure atmos
phere of the far Southwest, look down
in their eternal watch from cloudless
skies, typical of the spotless soul that
sleeps on and on through the roll of
Her first name was White, and her
family were among the pioneers of
this county. Old citizens remember
her, as well as a largo number of later
arrivals, for this county continued
to be her home until but a few years
ago. During the most of her stay
here she made her home with her
niece, Mrs. H. P. Coleman, now of
Long Beach, California.
In 1SS0, she was married to Dollie
Coleman, brother of H. P. and P. A.
Coleman. Two years later, at Brag
gadocio, the husband's life came to a
tragic end. To that union, there was
born one child, Dollie, now Mrs. Al
bert Ware, of Paragould, Arkansas.
All of the immediate White fami
ly who survive is, Mood, of West,
Mississippi, and Joe of Paragould,
Arkansas, both very aged. But of
nieces and nephews, they are of con
siderable number, and so to speak,
scattered from Ohio to California.
It would be hard for one not having
a record to name them all, but Sid
and Walter Michie or Micola, Will
and Guy Michie of Steele, Sam and
Arthur White and Mrs. Tom Curtner
of Braggadocio may be mentioned.
To know this gentle, kindly
christian woman, who lived her lone
ly, quiet life, was to esteem her. As
4i -friend to n'iu'iir;; uhsn(;itQ, her
place will be hard to fill, for her path
way in life was the giving of (lowers
to the living.
It was Joaquin Miller, the poet of
the Sierras, who said:
"All you can hold in your cold,
Is what you have given away."
This is all we take out of the world,
no matter what we have claimed as
our own during our sojourn here.
No u&e to stand before the great
judge and suy: "Lord, I have labor
ed hard investing the talents you
gave me, and I trebled and quadrupl
ed them until my coffers were full.
Lord, I bought and sold and traded,
never once hiding my talent In a nap
kin or. giving it time to rust through
idleness." No use to say this; no use
to plead thrift and industry, or to
boast how you seized or created op
portunity. To that Inst court you
must carry the proof of your claim,
as you carry It to any earthly tribun
al of justice. And the proof will lie
in your hands. All that . you can
show the Father as evidence of a
well spent life are the things "you
have given away." They will bo
there in your hands, visible to divine
oyes, as you lift those hands to God.
Every dollar you have given to a
needy man, every penny you have
dropped in the palm of a starving
beggar, every loaf of bread or dust
of fuel you have given in the service
of God's poor all of them will be
there. And not . these material
things only; hut every helpful word
you have spoken to the despairing,
every gentle deed and act of love,
every comrade's hail to a fultering
brother, every uplift to the weary
these will show In letters of gold up
on your closed palms.
We do not know when our sum
mons will come to the last court.
It may be today or tomorrow, but tfie
call is inevitable.
"The Bird of Time has hut a
little way to nutter
And the Bird is on the wing."
And so, under the olue sky of
God's summor time,wlth nil the thrill
and throb and joy of life about us,
let us open our hands and look at
them and ask ourselves what they
will hold on that near or far day
when we carry our llfe'n record into
the great beyond. What have we,
like "Aunt Mat," ghou .way in the
si,irit of holpfulness? What part of
our earning, and, more than that,
what part of ourselves, of our
Htrength and hopo and love? '
