Johnston. Samuel B. Johnston and wife, Caroline Johnston, both acceptable members of our church in Roper, N. C, have been called away by death during the present year, and their home broken up. The wife, who before marriage, was Miss Caroline Herrington, was born on the 11th day of May, 1SG1, and died in a Norfolk, Va., hospital, on the 17th of March, 1908. Brother Johnston Johnston was born on the 22nd day of September, 1840, home near Roper, 19 OS. For many he was in charge and died at his N. C, June 17th, years of his life of the Methodist Sunday-school Sunday-school Sunday-school in Roper, as superintendent, superintendent, and was a trustee of said church at the time of his death. He was once postmaster in Roper, and for several years prior to his death was on the Board of County Commissioners Commissioners for his (Washington) county. It is not often that father and mother go so near together. But the children left behind have ground to hope. May God help us all to be ready! F. B. McCALL.
