Answers Death's Messenp-er
Little Bessie Irene Meade, who has
heen so ill at the home of her par
ents for the past nearly a month and
who battled with double pneumonia
and other complications, with a ten
acity of life which seemed to know
no defeat, was compelled to succumb
to the inevitable when the messen
ger came with the message. She fold
ed her hands and in peace went to
sleep in the arms of her Master. Bes
sie was a particularly bright student
in the schools and always had her
lessons the best and was one of the
most affable of young girls, being
attractive by reason of her kindly
disposition and was a friend of ev
eryone. Not alone were the hearts
of the parents and immediate fam
ily wrung sore but her many friends
were more than pained at her death.
The funeral was held at the Baptist
church where the last sad rites were
said by the Rev. Samuel Miller, pas
tor of the church, of which this
young girl was a member. The in
terment was made at the Wyoming
cemetery where she will rest until
the trumpet of the Angel of Resur
rection shall call to that realm
where sorrow, pain and sickness are

and as the Sundays were mostly nice
days during the interval since she
began the hens layed even more eggs
en that day than others and she was
vble to hand her minister, the Rev.
V. A. Tavlor, five -dollars from but
a very short time of this setting

She feels that she has lost nothing
as the other days supplied the wants

Will Hold Interesting- Ueeting
The B. Y. P. U. will hold a spe
cial meeting at the church on Sun
day of this week, not that they have
not been meeting reguarly but the
are to have a special program which
v.-ill be of much interest to all. Miss
Alma Frans will be the leader and
will have for the subject of the meet
ing. "China." This is the oldest
country in the world and one which
is as deep in mystery will be studied.
Here You Chnrch People!
You ,.have wondered how you
would pay vthe preacher or the ex
pense of the church. A unique way
of solving this problem was suggest
ed to a good woman of Wabash,
when she. Mrs. Bosworth, a member
of the Baptist church of that vil
lage, was wondering how she would
be able to meet the amount which
she wished to give to the church.
Many people believe in titheing. but
Mrs. Bosworth at the suggestion of
her son James has got something
better and as it proved even more
than one-seventh. The son said:
"Say, mother, why do you not take
the eggs which the hens lay on Sun
A.y ?nd sell them for rash and give
the money to the minister?" The
iftei was one which had not come
to her before but she fell in with it,
Thinks Well of Hirn
A number of the friends of Coun

Are Talking: Bail Aain
The matter of having a team in
Union for the coming season for the
2imisement of the baseball loving
reople of Union and vicinity took
form when the boys gathered and
discussed the matter. They will
know in a short time just what they
will do about the national game for
the coming summer, but it looks like
they will have a dandy team.
Sounds like Weddine Bell3
There is even more than a rumor
that fhere will be a couple of wed
dings in Union in the near future.
We were told who were to be the
principals in the contract but were
toid that it was not to he published
for a short time and so we are re
specting the confidence in not giv
ing the names at this time, but then
you may guess.
Regular Services Both Churches
There will be the regular services
during the day and evening at the
Methodist and Bapitst churches as
well as the Bible schools and the ses
sions of the young peoples meetings
of both churches. All members are
urged to be inattendance and a cor
dial invitation to all strangers to attend.
Serenaders are Coming
This is the last of the Lyceum
course which the people of Union
have had the privilege of attending
during the now passing winter. This
is indeed an excellent number, the
talent being some of the most fin
ished male singers and with this
there is much fun provoking features
Do you know that the ones who
have guaranteed this course are fac
ing a deficit which they will have
to meet that Union might have the
course. Now the nice thing to do is
to rally around this last number and
make it as large in attendance as
posihle. that the loss of the citizens
of Union may be less.
