The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charley BALEY
departed this life at the home of Porter BALEY in the Elm community,
December 31, 1914, only a few months old. This precious little son was
of few days and full of trouble, as we learn from that book that should be
the guiding hand of all men. All ministers can truthfully say too
father and mother of the departed child, that they surely know where this
child is, though dead. - Far beyond the parental wantenfulness, under the
keen eye of him who said, "Suffer little children to come unto
me." And forbid them not, yes Mother, when you give your infant
child in death, there is no wondering or musing in your mind, it is safe.

MRS HENRY CARTER SUCCUMBS TO LONG ILLNESS
Just as we are going to press, we learn of the death of
Mrs. Henry CARTER. We are too deeply shocked to express our
real feelings on so short a notice.
Not many years back, the old LIVELY school house and
the old LIVELY homestead was the center of social attraction of what
is now known as the Irving country. Since her father and mother passed
away, "Miss Fannie LIVELY", as she was known for many
miles, has been the main-stay of the LIVELY family, and we believe
she is more than any other entitled to the title of "Mother of
If we were selecting a model, true womanhood we could think
of no one character in our entire acquaintance who could have better been
entitled to that honor than Mrs. CARTER. Rather than Irving
sympathizing with the husband, brothers and sisters of the deceased, we feel
that it is more fitting for us to accept the sympathies of the outside
world, for we are at Irving all united as one big family in the deepest and
most sincere sorrow for the unestimable loss.

Mrs. Malinda DARNELL of near Estelle, was born June
23, 1850, in Midelle, Tennessee, moving from there to Tex., thirty years ago
and departed this life, December 30, 1914 at the home of her son. Mrs.
DARNELL joined the M. E. Church forty-nine years ago and since that
time lived in obedience to the rules of the church of her choice. It
surely should be a source of much pleasure to the surviving children to know
that their's was a life with such a mother. The sympathy of a large
circle of friends go out to the bereaved family.
Interment and funeral services took place at Kit, December
31, 1914. Conducted by Dr. L. COMBO in the presence of a goodly
number of relatives and friends. Let all mothers be as this mother
said, "I am ready". L.C.

0'clock Saturday evening.
Mr. EISELSTEIN came from Bavaria, Germany, about two
an half years ago, to join his brother, Mr. Carl EISELSTEIN, who came
to free America a few years prior. He leaves to mourn his death, a
widow and seven children - the oldest ten years of age, and the youngest two
The oldest child is seriously sick with the fever; and the
mother has been very sick, but is rapidly improving.
Though a stranger in our land, and could talk our language
but very little, yet those who knew him say he was a kind neighbor - always
ready to help, and always friendly and cheerful. And they loved him.
