Landrum, in the 70th year of her age.
Ouiet and gentle in manner, she
moved deeper and deeper with the
passing years into the autumn sweet
ening, until this glad day she found the
Master waiting, and went home to re
ceive her reward for the deeds done in
the body. She was born in Coweta
county in 1834, of Christian parentage.
Brought up in the nurture and admoni
tion of the Lord, early in life she uni
ted with the Methodist church, and
while she never sought to lie conspicu
ous in church work, her faithfulness to
all its ordinances and to her Lord and
Master were constant and abiding.
In the early 50’s she was happily
married to Mr. W. F. Landrum, a pros
perous young merchant of Fayetteville,
Ca. Later they removed to Fairburn,
making that place their home until
death came to claim the devoted hus
band and father. Of this union were
born five children, two of whom are
living Mr. Walter Landrum, of Mem
phis, Term., and Mrs. W. C. Cole, of
Atlanta. To them Rhe has left a heri

and evening was crowned with many
deeds of kindness. Softly upon their
bowed heads rests the benediction of a
mother arisen and glorified.

"Throw Out the Life Line” —

They're getting worse every minute.
Will you help them?
Doan's Kidney Pills have brought

On Dec. 26, 1886, Bro. Davis was
married to Kate Meriwether, daughter
of the late Jas. Meriwether. Of this
union two sons were horn — Jeptha
Pierce and Hugh Buchanan Davis—
both of whom died in early childhood.
Bro. Davis was converted and joined
Flim church under the ministry of Rev.
R. H. Jackson. Bro. Davis was afflict
ed nearly all his life, being a great
sufferer from rheumatism. While his
career was somewhat varied, he con
tended at ail times for the faith once
delivered to the saints, and in this con
tention the church did not at all
times understand his motive. But we
are all persuaded that an earnest desire
for (he salvation of souls, together
with the honoring and glorifying of
our Heavenly Father’s name, ruled his
motives. We did not at. all times un
derstand him here, but "we shall know
each other better when the mists have
rolled away. ” Those who knew him
best loved him most. They found with
in that rugged form a heart as tender,
as true, as loving and as trusting as
that, of a little child. He exhorted the
brethren to endure hardship as a good
soldier, and to always he faithful to
the cause of the Master. He bore his
last affliction with Christian fortitude,
repeatedly stating that he was ready
to answer to the Master’s call. There
fore, be it resolved-
1. That in the death of our brother
the church has lost a faithful member,
the community a good citizen, and the
family a kind husband and father.
2. That we extend our sympathy to
the bereaved family, and would remind
the wife that God has promised to be
a husband to the widow, and a father
ti the fatherless. We would earnestly
entreat his sturdy sons to put on the
whole armor of God and endure hard
ness as a good soldier.
H. That a copy of these resolutions
he sent the bereaved family, and also
to The Herald and Advertiser and New-
nn News for publication.

Four or five miles southwest of
Lumpkin, on the Eufaula road, live Mrs.
Dunaway and part of her family. On
Saturday night last Mrs. Dunaway was
taken very ill suddenly, and her son,
Lum, quickly mounted a horse to go
after a negro living a quarter of a mile
otT to get him to hurry to Lumpkin for
a physician. In the meantime the negro
had heard of Mrs. Dunaway’s illness,
and he, too, mounted a horse and started
to the Dunaway home at full speed.
Lum Dunaway and the negro were going
swiftly in opposite directions on the
same road, and it being dark neither
rider saw the other, and the horses came
together with a crash, knocking both
riders off with some bruises, but noth
ing serious. Oneof the horses was killed
outright and died on the spot. The
negro mounted the other horse and
proceeded to town for a doctor, but the
horse gave out before he reached town
and died that night. It was certainly
a singular accident.- Lumpkin (Ga.)
An empty coffin rested on a truck on
the At chison depot platform one day this

No sooner was he concealed than a |
young negro with a jaunty swagger and
tuneful whistle came along, and, wishing
to rest, settled comfortably on the cas
ket. Soon he was startled by a distress
ing moan. The moan was repeated, and
then somebody said: “Oh-o-o-o-o!
Please get off'my body.” The negro
granted the request at once. With a
blood-curdling yell he leaped into the air
and sped away. He attempted to cross
the bridge, but Cy Smith, fearing that
in his frenzy he would leap into the
watery depths below, blocked the way.
Unable to cross the river, the negro

largely founded on fiction, partly on
unwarranted conclusions from imper

was always the land of hospitality,
which, of old, was closely associated in
the popular mind with plenty of good

A woman in Chicago wants a divorce
because her husband not only lets her

all the talking. This reminds us of a
little family jar between a local couple,
the man in the case having told the sto

quarreled and talked and quarreled for
ten or fifteen minutes without getting
a word hack from her spouse. Finally,
after saying something particularly hard
and which she had evidently expected
to elicit at least a murmur of protest
or denial, but still hearing not a chirp
from the object of her wrath, she glared
at him fiercely and exclaimed in despair:

interrupted, “you needn’t waste any

nothing more to say, said nothing.

Malaria is due to impurities and poisons in the blood. Instead of bein'*
rich, strong and healthy, the circulation has become infected with germs of
disease which destroy the rich, red corpuscles that furnish nourishment and
strength to the body, and reduced this vital fluid to such a weak, watery
condition that it is no longer able to keep the system in health, or ward off
the countless diseases and disorders that assail it. The loss of these
red corpuscles takes the color and glow of health from the cheek, and we
see pale, sallow faces and washed out, chalky complexions among the first
symptoms of Malaria. But Malaria is a general systemic disease, and as
the blood becomes more heavily loaded witiv its germs we have more serious
and complicated symptoms; the impure blood having its effect on all parts
of the body. The appetite fails, digestion is weakened, chills and slight
fever are frequent, and the sufferer loses energy and ambition because of a
constant tired-out and “ no account ” feeling. The lack of necessary nour
ishment and healthful qualities in
the blood causes boils and abscesses,
skin affections, and in some cases
sores and ulcers to break out, and
sometimes the patient is prostrated
with a spell of malarial fever which
may leave his health permanently
impaired To cure Malaria both a
blood purifier and tonic are necessary,
in order to remove the cause and at
the same time build up the system
from its weakened and run-down
condition. S. S. S. is the medicine
best fitted for this work. It is the
most perfect of all blood purifiers, and
the purely vegetable ingredients of
which it is composed make it the
greatest and safest of all tonics.
S. S. S. goes down ir^to the circulation and removes every trace of impurity
or poison, and at the same time gives to the blood the health-sustaining qual
ities it needs. It cures Malaria thoroughly and permanently because it
removes the germs and poisons which produce the disease, and while doing
this tones up and strengthens every part of the system. When S. S. S. has
cleansed the blood the symptoms pass away, the health}' color returns to
the complexion, the old tired, depressed feeling is gone, and the entire health
is renewed. Book with information about Malaria and any medical advice

During 1900 I was running a farm on
the Mississippi river and became so impreg
nated with Malaria that for a year I was
almost a physical wreck. I tried a number
of medicines recommended as blood purifi
ers, chill cures, and Malaria eradicators,
but nothing did me any good until I began
to use S. S. S. The result was that after
taking it for awhile 1 was as well and
strong as I ever was. I have never had a
chill since nor the slightest symptom of
Malaria. I hope others will be benefited
by my experience, and with that end in
view I give this testimonial, knowing that
S. S. S. is the best remedy for Malaria.
