ruhning in the store stopped at 15
until 2 o’clock, caused by the jar
of the explosion.

On last Saturday morning about
6 o’clock, John Carr,' a negro crop
per on the farm oi Mr. George A.
Brown, u highly respected farmer
living near Raines, in this county,
went to the home of Mr. Brown
and requested Mr. Brown to ad'
vance him some money.
Mr. Brown told the negro that
it had only been a few days since
he had let him, (the negro) have a
sufficient supply to run on for quite
awhile and that he could not afford
to let him have money when his
account was already more than his
crop would make. Mr, Brown also
called Can’s attention to the fact
that he, (the negro) had forged an
increase in the amount of tie order
he had given, and refused to let him
have any further advancements in
the way of cash. At this the negro
became very much enraged, and
owing to the delicate condition of
Mr. Brown’s wife’s health, he was
told to get out of the yard; where
upon his manner of speech became
quite profane and abusive, and said
that he would get out when he d—d
pleased, and further, if Mr. Brown
came out of the house and put his
foot on the ground that he would
Mr. Brown got his gun and told
'he negro that he must get out^of

Christ said, '-It I be lifted up. I will
draw all men unto me.” In the lives of
our associates we often hnd this express
ion verified. Most especially was this
true in the life of ‘ our young friend
Marvin Auston Yawn, who finished his
work here and entered into rest with the
savior April aand, 1903.
He was born Aug. 30th, it(8r, and was
twenty years, eight months and ten days
old. Just entering young manhood he
was studiously preparing himself for a
ir oat useful life. Day after day he walked
by bis fathers aide, helping, comforting,
strengthening Mm. Evening after even
ing he entered his home, the joy. light
and life of hit mother. To his brother
and alster he was a loving companion, a
wise counsellor, a devoted brother.
All leisure hours were filled with
preparations for Mercer University which
he hoped to enter and fit himself for
greater service to his family and fellow
man, but he lias been called to the Uni
versity of God where he has enicred the
higher life, growing into the magnificence
he could not attain here.
He loved Jesui and so often expressed
implicit faith and trust in Him during Ms
severe lllne-.i, hence, we do not grieve as
those without hope, for we are sure he is
'Tis very difficult to pay tribute to this
worthy young friend, whom to know was
to admire, whose beautiful trait* of
character were an attraction to ail. His
Father knew hi* worth, hence, He called
him home. The dear parent* have a
jewel there more costly than earthly
gems, which will constantly attract and
keep them near the Master.
The gentle nursing, the kindly minis
trations of bis family, hi* physician and'
his friends could not restore him.
Do not grieve for the re-setting of the
jewel, but rather rejoice, knowing that
the “Father doethall things well.” Your
treasure is in Heaven, your hearts will be
there alto; then, ,
Weep not that hi* tolls are over,
Weep not that his race is run,
God grant we may rest as calmly,
When our work, like his, is done.
Heaven retaineth now our treasure,
Earth the lonely casket keeps,
And the sunbeams love to linger
Where our sainted iriend doth sleep.
