B Easterling June 8, and took from them their father and grand father. He had been unable to get away from home for some time hut was confined to his bed only two weeks. He lived to the ripe old age of eighty four years AT. the people of this country knew (Uncle -Johnnie) as lie was called. He was a member of Laneburg Baptist church, and lived a devoted Christian life. He has gone to rest and is through with with the cares and sorrows ot this me ana nas reacn ed the goal the place he longed for so much. We often heard him speak of the time of his con version and of God’s goodnese toward him, but he has only paid the debt that we all must pay sooner or later.. We would say to the heart striken relatives, as Jobe said, “The Lord gave, and the Lord take a wav.” Blessed be the name of the Lord, and weep not for him, but for those who know not Christ in the free pardon of their sins, for if they should be called as “Uncle Johnnie” they would not be pre pared to meet death as he was. Of course we would say, “Thy Will be done not ours” It was so hard to give him up, but we know he is wilh Christ. His life went out as the going out of a lamp but to shineagain more brighter. His remains were laid to rest at Mt. Pisgah cemetery. Bro. J. W. Erwin conducted the funeral services. One precious to our heart gone, The voice we loved is sal, The place made vacant in our home, can never more be filled. Our Father in his wisdom cal led the boon his love had given, and though on earth the body lies the soul is safe in Heaven. JA friend.

ARKANSAS STATE FAIR AND INDUSTRIAL EX POSITION FOR 1912 To be by Far the Greatest Ever Held in the State, if not in the Entire South. Many New Fea tures Added EXHIBITORS SCRAMBLING FOR SPACE IN EXHIBITION PALACE Elaborate preparations are be ing made to eclipse all previous effor.s in assembling the greatest Fair and Exposition ever seen in this section of the conntry. To step into headquarters just now a stranger would almost mistake it for the headquarters of the Panama Exposition as every thing is bustle and hurry. The merry hum of the typewriter can be heard on all sides, and tons of advertising matter is be ing prepared for distribution. It has been the purpose and ambi tion of the promolers of this great enterprise, to make it all that the name implies, A GREAT STATE fair, and after seven yaars of hard labor and the ex penditure of vast sums of money the jbtate Fair of Arkansas has takdn its place alongside of other State Fairs and is now recog nized as one of the strongest and I SMtf L I best expositions in the United States. The premium list for 1912 has been materially in creased and many new classes added. The great exhibition palace will be crowded this year with very fine exhibits from all parts of the United Statss. as it has now become an established fact throughout the country among manufacturers and exhibitors I generally that the very best re sults have been attained from showing their products at the Arkansas State Fair. The Fair this year will open in a perfect blaze of glory as the greasest spectacular production j ever witnessed on a fair ground j will be seen on this occasion, j added to this, many well known ! national characters will be pres entand participate in the open ing ceremonies as well as the State officers and also a number of Arkansas’ foremost citizens. The United States Govern ment. through its agents in this State, will assemble the great Boys’ Corn Club at this time be sides giving every assistance possible in the building up of the greatest agricultural exhibit in history of this institution The educational, geologi 'al, textile, speed, live stock, poultry exposition and amusement de Dartments are all to be greatly enlarged and elaborated upon, there, it is safe to say that the Arkansas State Fair of 1912 will go down in history as a record breaker both in poinf of attend ance and excellence. PROHIBITION ELECTION CALLED IN THIS COUNTY In accordance with the election laws, a prohibition election cannot be held sooner than two years after the last election was called. This same restric tion is not recognized, however, by the people in recommending Hunt’s Light ning Oil for Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Headaches, etc. For thirty odd years it has been acknowledged to be the best.
