DEATH OF A YOUNG MAN
On Thursday of last week, Feb. 7th, a very sad death occurred in our town, it being that of Mr. Samuel P. Daniel, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. E.F. Daniel, of "Arcadia," at the age of 21 years.
This event was not altogether unexpected, as he had been more or less afflicted with a rheumatic affection for several years, which has now proved fatal.  He was a very great sufferer, but bore his afflictions with great fortitude and patience.
He was a young man of many most excellent traits of character, and was among all who knew him respected and liked. Among his young friends he was especially popular; his genial and companionable disposition, his warm sympathy and lively manner winning friendship and keeping it.  We think it can truly be said of him that he was a good son, and loving brother and a loyal friend.
 The bereaved parents and his brothers and sisters have the sympathy of our entire community in this sad affliction.
The funeral services were held at the Village Presbyterian church, Thursday afternoon, Rev. R.L. McNair, the pastor, officiating, and the remains were laid to rest in Village cemetery, a large gathering of relatives and friends testifying their regard by their presence.

IN MEMORIAM
Death is ever busy working changes, bringing sorrow, and setting happy spirits free with a great good immortality.
Miss Adeline M. Deaner was born Oct. 29th, 1873, and died at her father's home at Aspenwall, at 6:30 p.m., April 19, 1907.
She made a profession of her faith in Christ while young, and cast in her lot with the Lord's people.  When about 16 years of age she became a subject to inflammatory rheumatism, and was a great sufferer, at times, for 18 years.
A fond father, and devoted sisters and brothers did all that could be done for her relief and comfort.  In the school of discipline, Miss Addie grew in grace and the knowledge of Christ.  Her faith took in a new life, bringing clearer vision of her Saviour and a rich spiritual assurance.
Her last testimony was, "With God there is everything, and I am so happy in Jesus."  Tenderly we laid her body away in the Bethel cemetery, to meet her again in Heaven.

IN MEMORIAM
Of Mrs. Rosa L. Dickerson
On Sunday night, September 1st, 1907, in the prime of middle life, after a some-what protracted period of illness and great suffering, borne with true christian patience, Mrs. Rosa L. Dickerson, wife of Mr. J. Monroe Dickerson, jr., was removed to her eternal rest from the home of her birth, the home of the late Mr. Hezekiah Harvey, near "Reeses," Charlotte Co.
She died in the serene faith and hope of the gospel.  She had been for many years a consistent disciple of Christ; at first, a member at Hermon Presbyterian church, then for some years at Briery, and at last, having come back to live in her native home, in the act of transference again to Herman church.
In her last illness, that greatest trial to a mother's faith and resignation was her's; the leaving of her young children, five in number, three of them quite small, one of them being a babe of a few months.  But faith triumphed.  She calmly committed herself and all her dear ones to the keeping of her Savior.
Mrs. Dickerson was a very estimable Christian woman, a cultivated lady.  A close neighbor and friend, of the Briery congregation, writes, "She was one of the sweetest and most loveable person I have ever known."
She rests from her sufferings; "Asleep in Jesus."

IM MEMORIAM
Mr. Bernard Willie Dixon died November 21, 1907, after a short illness.  He was the eldest son of Mr. James Dixon, living near Keysville.  His remains were laid to rest in the Ash Camp Cemetery, near the Baptist church at Keysville, four miles from the home he loved so well.
This announcement will bring sorrow to the heart of many relatives and friends who knew him.  He leaves a stricken father and mother, three brothers, and four sisters to mourn their heavy loss.  In his illness, all that loving hands could do, and human skill could suggest was done, but when He who controls all things claim His own, no power on earth can oppose His will.
The deceased brother was a member of Beulah M.E. church, and will be greatly missed by his many friends of that body.  The deepest and tenderest sympathy is felt in this community for the bereaved parents and stricken family. 
Mr. Dixon was an affectionate son and brother and a true friend.  He exemplified in his daily life all those beauties of christian character which adorn true manhood.  As a neighbor and true friend, a truer man was never known. 
He was a fair bud from the ancestral tree.
This is a severe trial this dear family have been called upon to bear, and most deeply do we all sympathize with them in this affliction.  But why should we weep as those who have no hope?  He is not lost but gone before; he cannot return to us, but we shall go to him, and the memory of his life is a consolation.

Thou hast said good-bye so early,
Leaving fond hearts crushed and sore,
With the thought that we have lost thee,
Lost thee here - forevermore.
Mother and father sit in deepest sorrow;
Sisters' tears, too, bitter flow;
Brothers weep with one another,
O'er the ghastly cup of woe.
If thy voice could reach the living,
What would they sweet message be?
Would it not be - thou art resting
By the gleam of Heaven's calm sea?
With the tenderness of a friend.
