In Memoriam In loving memory of our loved one THOMASINA WILLIAMS HEN DERSON, Who died November 13th, 1910. “In the midst of life we are in death,” said the prophet of old; and to our dear one this prophecy was well applied. When her life seemed just in its infancy, and ambition was beckon ing her onward, death intervened and bore on its mysterious pinions, the soul of our loved and devoted “daugh ter.” On a calm moonlight night, hand in hand with early dawn, the heavenly day came to this child of God, and cut short an existence which was our pride and comfort. Tho’ three years have passed her image is reflected all around us, and in our meditations we miss her pres ence, counsel and advice. We bow in humble submission to the will of “Him who doeth all things well,” and find consolation in knowing that death is only a dream,” and after the glad awakening, we shall be with her for aye. Her devoted family. In memory of our dear son and brother, JOSEPH DOOLEY, Who departed this life November 12th, 1912. Gone but not forgotten. Sleep on, beloved, sleep, And take thy rest, Lav down thy head upon The Savior’s breast. We love thee well, but Jesus Loves thee best, Good night! good night! good night. Mother, Mrs. Lula Dooley, Sister and brother. In sad and loving remembrance of my dear daughter, LILLIE B. WOODSON, Who passed to her everlasting rest on the morning of Nov. 11th, 1912. All is dark within our home, And lonely are our hearts today, For the one we loved so dearly Has forever passed away. She suffered and murmured not Though far away she is not forgotten, The Lord doeth all things for the best, And taketh her home to rest Safe uoon the heavenly shore, Done with all pr-ises forever mere. When the shadows of life has ended, When the morning come and busy world has hushed. And the fever of life was over And her work on earth was done, Oa the calm and quiet rest, On btrjloving Savior’s breast, Perfect peace supremely blest, Safe forever more. Storms shall never reach her there, In that heavenly mansion fair From the wells of our hearts arise tears of regrets, Though she sleeps beneath the sod. I can never forget But when we cross that deep and dark, And reach that bright and happy land. Our loving one will greet us, And welcome us over there.

Mutual Insurance Co. whose fund amental principles could be for nothing else but racial uplift and some other industrial insurance companies whose very existence is for the sole benefit of their own kith and kin, then you are either unreasonable or something else which sounds bad. The Ga. Mu tual like all Negro Insurance Com-1 panies, will appreciate your insur-' ance. H- T. Singleton, Supt. 509 W.
