Who takes a soul that has been cast ?part And frees him from his doubts and black thoughts rife; Who cuts him loose from Hell as with a knife. And drags him from the devils very matt; <Vho gives him strength to brave temptation's dart; Who flcods the narrow river of his life; Who stands behind him in the endless strife. And when he's doubting shows him one pure heart; Who when he totters and is awed by fear. Still guides that weary traveler to his goal: Who lifts him from seclusion's ghastly bier; Who stands him on his feet and makes him whole* Who makes his life, once hated, loved and dear? HE DOES GOD'S WORK. AND SAVES A HUMAN SOUL. ? Use w rwa For Sale One hundred dollar launch, t i^n n t v five feet long, 3 horse power Miamus engine.

WHITE The gloom of sadness was cast Over our community when, on May 4th, 1911. the soul of Mr. George W. White took its sudden flight irom this scene o? existence to the beautiful world beyond. Mr White was apparently in his usual good health until within 24 hours of his death. On May 3d he preformed his usual dur^s attending the funeral services of Mr. Chas. Cullen's little son in the afternoon. It was while at the home ot Mr. Cullen that lie was stricken, with paralvs?s. He was taken to his home on North River where he died 24 hours later. This sudden call should remind us that in the midst of life we are in death. Watch, for at an hour when ye think not the summons cometh. Mr. White was one of the old? est c'tizens of our community, having passed the years ot three ? score and ten. He was among those honored men who fought bravely for the Confederacy during those years of conflict between the North and South. He is survived by one son, Royal White; four brothers. ?Wm. H. White, Kenny White. Lemuel White and Wesley White and two sisters. Mrs. Wesley Gayle and Miss Bettie P. White The funeral services were coi - ducted bn his pastor, T. \V. O^. ^\t'.n, at Emmanuel Church, ot which he had Ion,; been a consis? tent member. His remains were laid to rest in Providence Ceme? tery. "Servant of. God. well done. Thy glorious warfare past; The battle's fought, the race is won. And thou art crowned at last." ?Correspondent O opi ni vi pi cat i op Editor Journal? In your report of the speaking at Mathews Court House, in the last issue of your paper, you inadvertantly announc ed that I spoke in favor of an in? crease in the tax on oyster plant? ing grounds. Although I suppose all who heard me realize that 1 spoke against such an increase, still, to prevent any misapprehen? sion ot the facts. I would like to have you correct the mistake and put me fairly before the peo? ple of Mathews and Middlesex, as emphatically opposed to any ad ditional burdens upon either the ? tish or ovster interests.
