Obituary
The Death Angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Spivey of the Oak Grove community on October 8 and claimed for its reward the fair jewel of the home, Frances. She was only sick a short while when God saw fit to call her to a better world. All things were done that loving hands could do. We realize this was hard to bear, yet how "Sweetly solemn" it is to know thy rest.

We should be comforted when we know this life was well spent here on earth. Our Father saith, little children to come unto me." 'Tis sad to give her up, but God knoweth all things best. Sleep on dear, and take thy rest, heaven's joy to share. Some sweet day we must be prepared to meet with you where there will be no suffering, no fairwell to be said. We know our Father was pleased to say "come ye blessed."
Little Frances was only 14 years old. She was loved by all who knew her. She joined the Baptist church and was baptized hardly a year ago. She leaves a is a father, mother, three brothers and two sisters, and a host of friends to mourn her loss.
The remains were interred in the Oak Grove Cemetery at a o'clock.
She has bade this world adieu.
Now she is safe with Jesus on that bright, eternal shore.
Now we miss her in our Sunday school. Her voice was so sweet and merry.
Sleep on dear, and take thy rest,
God sent for you; he thought it best
Some day for us our Lord will send
Bright angels, sweet and fair;
And when the roll of all he'll call,
We too, shall answer up there.
Written by a friend, Kerens, Texas October 20.

Obituary.

On October 8, between 12 and 1 o’clock the Death Angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Spivey and plucked the precious rosebud from their garden of sunshine and happiness, and took from them their precious daughter, Frances. She was the bright shining star of their home. Little Francis was only 14 years old when she was called to live with Jesus. She was sick only a short while. Dear kindred and loved ones, we can sympathize with you, but do not weep. She has left father and mother, three brothers and two sisters to mourn their loss, but their loss is heaven’s gain. She was too precious for this sinful world, but she is now where there are no sorrows or pain, but will walk the shining streets of gold with the happy angel band. We all hope to meet our dear loved ones on that bright celestial shore. Dear parents, your darling has gone away but do not weep or grieve. We know you would love to have her with you, but God saw fit to call her home to heaven. All was done that loving hands could do, but God plucked her from the garden to himself.

You have lost your darling daughter,
She has bade this world adieu;
She has gone to live with Jesus,
And her face is lost to view.
Yes, God has taken her from you,
The one you loved so well;
But she is safe with the angels,
There to forever dwell.
No more you will hear her laughing,
Nor hear the sound of her feet,
Though she is waiting for you up yonder,
With her arms outspread.
We miss her in our daily duties,
Miss her in the silent night;
But our sadness always tells us
That our loss is heaven’s gain.
Your darling daughter from you has gone,
And a voice you loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in your home,
Which never can be filled.

Written by a true friend who loved her so well, Essie May Hammett, of Kerens, Texas.

In Memory of Mary Eliabeth [sic] Bennett

The funeral services were held at the Methodist church with Rev. Van P. Morrison in charge. Surviving are her parents, two sisters, and other relatives. She was laid to rest in the Pattison cemetery at Emhouse.

God needed one more angel to fill a vacant place,
So, He saw best to take her away
and lay her to rest. Dear sisters, so live.
So you can meet her there;
Where Jesus and Jake live,
In a home so bright and fair.

Oh, Dear mother do not weep,
For she is asleep,
With little angels at her feet.

Dear father don't be sad.
For little Jake will be glad;
When she shall meet you there
With a little smile so bright and fair.

Cousins, Uncles and Aunts.
She has gone before;
So you can meet her
On that bright eternal shore.

Mr. Huling and other friends.
Her love was once for you all.
In Heaven now she stands;
She was taken from us all.
One who loved her best of all friends.
MINNIE JEWELL RAY.

Obituary

Homer R. Price, the subject of this sketch was born in Louisiana March 4, 1850. He professed religion at the age of 21 under the ministry of Rev. G. P. Miller, and united with the Methodist Protestant church in which he lived and labored, and toiled and prayed, and paid, until the day of his death. He was married to Miss Sallie E. Thompson in 1875. His wife still lives. He has one brother and two sisters living. Newt Price of Snyder, Mrs. Kelly of Black Hills and Mrs. Benton of Emhouse. He has two sons living and several grandchildren. One son, Dr. John Price, of Rosser, Texas, and the other Homer Price Jr., of Emhouse, Texas. His only daughter, Mrs. John Sharpley, preceded him several years to the better land.

Brother Price was a useful man in his neighborhood, always ready to help in any enterprise he thought was for the good of the community. He was useful in the church, filling every office of the church that belonged to the laymen at different times, and he died it bravely, and willingly, and honestly. He was loyal to the church to which he belonged and was faithful to attend her services. He loved the ministers and paid liberally to their support. He was a great factor in building the first Methodist Protestant church of King Willow, and when it became necessary to move the church to Emhouse on account of the railroad going there he was just as willing to lend a helping hand and give his money. We have sustained a great loss in the death of Bro. Price and we were very sorry to give him up. But death is a factor that must come into every man’s live and no matter how much we might desire to side track him for ourselves or for our friends, we cannot do it but must meet him in the narrow way and yield to the decree. Bro. Price has gone from among us to mix and mingle in the associations of life no more, but he has left his stamp on the lives of those with whom he was associated and his memory will live for many years.

Here are some of the Proverbs found in his diary after his death, by which he tried to live:

“They that practice honesty find no trouble in doing right.:
“Moderate possession is better than great riches.”
“Blessed is the peacemaker for he shall find his reward.”
“Better is contentment than to own all four corners of a big open room.”
“They that desire riches, let them get it honestly.”
“Virture means a pure heart and a lofty mind.”
“To live in peace with all men as much as lieth within you is a good thing.”
“Don’t think you know it all, you will find others who have dug up some things.”
“Wisdom is a good thing to have but be sure you have it.”
“The man that has religion, you need not try to buy it, for it is better than gold or diamonds or jewels.”

G. W. SANDERS.
