A visit of the death angel is always
an occasion of the greatest sorrow known
Though the undisputed lot of every
being in which there is the breath of
life, it seems hard for the young to die
when they stand so bright aud promis
iug upon the threshold ot maturity; and
when in a time so short that we cannot
realize its duration. Th- flowers which
decorate tho brow of you'h are faded
in dark habiliments of tho tomb Still
someone has well said: “The old
must die, and the young must die.”
and the force of this old saying was
never more sadly manifested Ilian on
the 18th day of September, 1900, when
Miss Mutell Bridges, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. T. W. Bridges, died atTryon,
Ga., where her parents had moved frouf
Jackson County some 2 years ago. She
was born October Ist, 1885, and at the
time of her duath was 14 years, 11
months and 18 lays old. She was
brought to Winder, then by sorrowing
relatives and friends, wr taken to her
grand parent", Mr. and Mrs N. L. Mad
dox, and from thence to WalnuL Church
Cemetery where the last that was mor
tal of this lovely girl wai laid to rest on
the 2( th of Bep.
The group around her coffin consist
ing of her aged grand father aud moth
er, nudes, aunts, cousins, schoolmates
and many other friends, taking a last
look at her sweet face, present and a scene
which was sad to the la t degree. Aud
perhaps this intensified by the absence
of her father and mother, who were de
tained at home by the sickness of her
sister, Ivie, who at that time was no.
expected to live.
Ou v dearly loyed, M.utoll had
been the pupil of the writer for two
years, and one more lovely, docile, obe
dient aud industrious never entered the
school room. Faithful to perform her
duty, piersing rud agreeable iu all her
relatious with others she was at ouce
the idol of her classmates, the darliug
of her relatives, aud the favorite of all
with whom she came iu coutact.
From au earthly stand point it seems
h ird to see such a fair aud promising
life given iqto the cold arms of death,
wheu she stood it were upon the first
step which promised to lead on and ou
to a glorious womanhood; but her
Heaveuly Father, who sees uot as we
see, knows best, aud hr~ taught us the
great lesson that “All things work to
gether for good to them that love God.”
Then we cau say all honor to your sweet
name while here ou earth, Mutell, a
gushing torrent of tears to your mem
ory, while all who knew you certainly
feel that your glorious reward is ‘ ‘Heav
en at lust.” J. E. J. Lord.
