Miss Maggie Virginia Jordon
Notwithstanding the fact that
Miss Maggie had, for several weeks,
been seriously sick, and the people
of Monterey and the county people
generally knew of it, yet, on Tues
day morning, when they learned of
her death, the sad news came un?
expectedly to them and throughout
the town and county a gloom was
cast and sincere sympathies express?
ed for the bereaved family..
}\ Death came to the patient suf?
ferer at 4 o'clock, Tuesday morn?
ing. Just the day before the one
that brought to a close her earthly
life, was her birthday, she being
then 29 years of age, a fact she re?
filled herself and talked of with a
jegree of cheerfulness. During
the last days, it was seen by the
members of the family that Miss
Maggie was growing weaker, and
i.he hope they had been clinging to
jo fondly was gradually slipping
'rom them, but none realized it
nore clearly than Miss Maggie;
fat with her suffering, and the
ract present with her that the hour
>f death was near, she remained
?lieerful, light hearted and happy,
rhese characteristics marked the
lavs of her illness throughout,
rhere was no time that 'ier suffer
ng was too great for her to greet
.boss who visited her with a smile
ind speak pleasant and endearing
vords to the members of lier fami
y, some of whom constantly
stitched by her side.
When the last hour came this
spirit did not forsake her, but see in
*d to shine forth in even greater
splendor. She talked to her moth?
ar, her brothers and sisters of the
change that she knew was near, in
words that showed clearness of
thought, and in manner such con?
tentment, resignation and happi?
ness, that there could be no doubt
? hat that One in whom she had in
life and health trusted so implicit?
ly, had not in the hour of sickness
md death forsaken her.
When asked by her pastor if she
felt that Jesus was with her, she
with a smile, replied?"'Yes, I know
that he has been with me all the
It was in this sta*e of mind that
Miss Maggie, surrounded by her
loved ones, cam ly and peacefully
closed her eves to this world to
have them reopened where there
are "tunny mansions", where there
is no sorrow, no sickness no death.
Thus ended the short but useful
and trustful life of a loveable young
Miss Maggie became converted
to christianity and connected her?
self with the M. E. Church, South,
two years ago. She was a faith?
ful and valued worker in the
church, the League, the Bu lida V
school andnravermeeting.and it was
rare indeed that, ill health, her
place in these services would be
found vacant. Her earnestness and
devoted ness to the cause she espous?
ed was so evident that it could not
fail of creating au impression and
consequently be a good example f.ir
those who came in touch with her
In her secular employment, be?
ing operator of the M. & S. Tele?
phone Co. at the central office in
Monterey,Miss Maggie showed such
a friendly and obliging disposition,
and was so faithful in the perform?
ance of her duty, that she was not
long in winning the confidence and
esteem of all for whom and with
whom she transacted business.
This position extended the circle of
her acquaintance beyond the bor?
ders of her natiye county, and her
numerous friends of the line will
sadlv miss her cheerful "helo."
\After the visits of many to the
bereaved home with expressions of
sympathy and kindness, on Wed?
nesday evening at 2 o'clock the last
sad rite was performed. A short
touching service which was largelv
attended, was conducted at the
Methodist Church, bv the pastor.
Rey R L Eutsler. and then the re?
mains of the deceased were borne
tenderly to their last resting place
in the cemetery on the bili.
Those of her family, present at
the time of her death were?tin
mother, Mrs Armenia A Jordon
her brothers, Clem and Will and
sisters, leia and Georga, and in
their behalf and at tl.eir request
we state in this connection, thal

In making this purchase Dr
Fleming does not wish to creatt
?the impression that he will now oi
at any future, fixed date, occupy ii

is that for any reason that mai

Cures Colds; Prevents Pneumonia

We are wondering^ it just hap?

week, met in Stauntot? lu the 11

meet and to Washington they went,

will reside in future. >(
The bride is a daughter of Chas.
Brock of Indiana, but has been
living with her grand parents,
Mr and Mrs G. W. Hevener, since
the death of her mother. The
groom is a son of Mr C S Peterson.
Each is about 17 years of age, and
it was on account of their extreme
youth that opposition arose, mak?
ing elopement necessary.
When You Catch, Its Fun to Fish
It was due to the very great kind?
ness of the Fleisher Brothers of
Strait Creek that a Monterey fish?
ing party was permitted to enjoy a
fishing outing on Friday of last
week, along the headwaters Jof the
Potomac. It is never safe to speak
at length on such matters, especial^
ly when one is not posted on game
laws and do?s not know whether it
is in Virginia, or West Va., or both,
that the fishing is being done. It
is enough to say that the eourteceis
extended by the Fleisher boys was
appreciated to the fullest extent,
and by the entire party a vnte of
thanks is tendered them.

mend it to all owners of stock.
J. B. BELSHER, St Louis, Mo
Sick stock or poultry should not
eat cheap stock food any more than
sick persons should expect to be
cored by food. When your stock
and poultry are sick give them med?
icine. Don't stuff them with worth?
less stock foods. Unload the bowels
and stir up the torpid liver and the
animal will be cured, if it be possi?
ble to cure lt. Black-Draught Stock
and Poultry Medicine unloads the
bowels and stirs up the torpid liver.
It cures every malady of stock if
taken in time. Secure a 25-cent can
of Black-Draught St<x;k and Poultry
Medicine and it will pay for itself bm
times over. Horses work better. Cows
give more milk. Hogs cain flesh.
And hens lay more eggs. It solves the
problem of making as much blood,
