23, 1919. THE CHURCH ADVOCATE AND HOLINESS BANNER, FORT SCOTT KANSAS. 3 On Dec. 2, 1918, the Lord saw fit to call home little darling Jessie Imogene, the 3 months old daughter of Chas. and Rebecca Davidson, after an illness of about ten days, of influenza and pneumonia.

Everything was done that loving hands could do, but the Lord said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." While her stay on earth was short, she will be sadly missed in the home. Her little body was laid to rest in the Turkey Creek cemetery. Our sympathy is extended to the hear family, and may they so live that they will be an unbroken family in heaven. OUR DEAD. William Raymond Hamaker was born Sept.

7, 1896, and died Oct. 24, 1918, at the age of 22 years, one month and 17 days. Raymond leaves to mourn their loss, a father, four sisters and two brothers; his mother, two brothers and one sister preceded him to the glory world. Raymond was born into the family of God in Sept. 1918, and passed away with victory in his soul.

Ray always loved righteousness, and loved to sing sacred songs. In his last hours he sang, Old Account Was Settled" and "The Unclouded Day." He was perfectly resigned to the will of God. He, who doeth all things well, has seen the future on before. While they miss him in the home, his sufferings are all over. The funeral was preached by Bro.

H. Richardson, at the M. E. church in Deerfield. The body was laid to rest in the Deerfield cemetery.

A friend, MRS. HATTIE WELCH. Georgie Lauvon Waddell, daughter of Sister Waddell of Purcell, was born Oct. 29, 1915, and died Dec. 4, 1918, of influenza, suddenly followed by pneumonia fever, age 3 years, 1 month and 5 days.

She leaves a mother, two brothers and one sister to mourn their loss, her father having preceded her two years, from an accident suffered in the mines. She took sick Sunday, the 1st, and from the very beginning it seemed like all that could be done for her was a failure. On Wednesday evening the elders of the church were called, according to James 5, who anointed little Lauvon and prayed for the Lord to heal her, but it seems that he Lord has use for her in heaven, but through all our tears and with longing hearts we can say, "The Lord hath given. the Lord hath taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord." The funeral services were held at the Purcell cemetery at 2 p. m.

Thursday afternoon, conducted by Bro. Kelley of Webb City. LEVI C. KILMER. William Antwiler, father of John William Antwiler, was born in Germany on April 1, 1835, and died at his home at Fristoe, Benton county, Dec.

He has now gone to meet them. He said he was prepared days before he departed this life he was speechless. Just at dusk, as the sun was gone, he closed his mouth to go, and he told us good bye. He rolled his eyes toward heaven and seemed to be sleeping when the death angel came and took him to a home not made with hands. His sickness was short.

He was laid to rest at the Baptist church until the resurrection of that great day. May the Lord comfort our hearts and grant that we may each be ready for the Bridegroom when He comes. His grand daughter, BEATRICE G. ANTWILER. On Tuesday morning about 8:10, on Nov.

12. 1918, the death angel passed through our midst, bearing away the little. spirit of James Alva Reeder, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.

A. Reeder, 6th and Olive streets, after a tack siege of influenza, followed by an atof pneumonia. He was born Feb. 9, 1918. He was nine months and three days old.

Little Alva's death has caused a pall of sorrow to settle over the entire family, and all the friends who knew him. It was the little fellow's delight to ride a horse. When people would enter the house and go to leave he would wave good bye to them, but would never give up to wave good bye to his father. He was just too anxious to go with him to see the cows and horses. This sad affair is such a loss.

He was such a help and comfort and was the light of the home, which never will be forgotten. He was sent as a bud to bloom for a season, and was plucked, not by frost, but by the God who gave it. We feel that we have lost a precious jewel, but God's hand was in it all. The little fellow leaves a father, mother and three sisters, Flossie, Laura and little Opal, to mourn their loss. The funeral services were held at the home, conducted by Bro.

Fox. We had a little treasure once, He was our joy and pride; We loved him Oh! perhaps too well, For soon he sickened and died. All is dark within our dwelling, Lonely are our hearts today; For the one we loved so dearly Has forever passed away. -Aunt Stella. The above mentioned was a little nephew of mine.

He was so dear to us, but God loves just such little hearts. That is why He is calling so many home to abide with Him. I now kindly ask an interest in the prayers of the praying people that the Lord will strengthen the mother and father in their sad bereavement. STELLA GOWEN. Thomas Henry Noble, passed away at the home of his son, Henry Edward Noble, at Roy, N.

Dec. 10, 1918. Mr. Noble was born in Maryland 11, 1850, and was united in marriage to Mary Elizabeth Holden in Maryland Feb. 18, 1874.

To this union were born eight children. The wife, one son and three daughters preceded him to the other world. He leaves four children to mourn their loss: Mrs. A. R.

Cooley of Neodesha, Mrs. C. E. Rethington of Neodesha, Mrs. Chas.

Brady of Richmond, and Henry Edward Noble of Roy, N. M. Brother Noble lived in Altoona and Neodesha, for some time, and then came to Roy, N. in 1909 and homesteaded near Roy, where he lived till he died. Brother Noble had been a Christian and professed holiness from his youth up to the time of his death.

He lived a clean, pure and holy life. Brother Noble had been afflicted with Bright's disease for several years, and had been almost a constant sufferer, but he was so patient and kind in his affliction and always wanted the Lord to be glorified in everything he said or did. His greatest desire was to see his son become a Christian. He loved to read his Bible and the Holiness Banner, and never seemed happier than when some of his friends would gather in and sing some of the holiness songs he loved so well. May the bereaved ones be comforted with the thought that their loss is heaven's gain, and may they get ready to meet him in a world where there is no parting or tears.

The funeral services were conducted at the house by 0. W. Hearn, and the remains laid to rest in the Roy cemetery, to await the resurrection morn. May the blessings of God rest on the bereaved ones in the lonely home, and be the means of drawing them closer to the by a Friend.

She leaves, besides the children and husband, two sisters in Ohio, one brother, James Palmer, near Macon, also four grand children. She was converted in early life, was sanctified seven or eight years ago in a meeting held at school house near her home south of Macon, Mo. She will be remembered by many as being in attendance at the Macon camp meeting the last five or six years. Truly a good woman has gone. She lived a devoted Christin life, was a loving mother and faithful wife.

Will say to the loved ones, We mourn not as those who have no hope, as we feel that she is now safe in the glory world, for she left the evidence that she was ready to go. Let us as loved ones and relatives be faithful a few more years, and we will meet our loved one where there will be no more sorrow, sadness or heartaches. A loved one from us has gone, A voice we loved is stilled; A place is vacant in our home, Which never can be filled. Funeral service was conducted by the writer at the residence, and burial at -Mt. Olive cemetery.

A. W. GRIMSHAW. The death angel entered the home of Eugene M. and Anna Phillips, of Iola, and claimed for his own little Margaret Fern, age 2 years, 29 days.

She was a sweet little darling, but was too pure for this wicked world. Her death was due to whooping cough and pneumonia. She leaves a father, mother, four sisters, one brother and a host of relatives. Dear ones, put your trust in Jesus and look to Him. He can heal our broken hearts.

You can meet your darling baby where you never say good bye. She is not dead, the child of our affection, But has gone unto that School where she no longer needs our protection. And Christ himself doth rule. Pray for the parents. Written by her aunt, FAYE LOWE.

Joseph J. Lowe was born near Cassville, Sept. 13, 1891, and died at the home of his father in Cassville, Nov. 29, 1918, of influenza. He was married to Miss Fay Phillips on March 8, 1914.

To this union two children were born, Geneva Myrtle, who died in infancy, and Joseph Blaine, who survives.

The sisters are: Mrs. Mattie Mason of Loveland, Mrs. Meda Turner of Granby, Mrs.

Fanny Bradley of Durant, and Mrs. Mollie Pilant, and the brother Harvey Lowe of near Cassville, Mo. He was the son of J. C. and Amanda Lowe.

Joe was converted at the Barry county camp meeting in 1916, which was held at the Log church. I remember while he was seeking the Lord he called for Brother Leakey to pray. He loved Brother Leakey so much. He united with the denomination the summer of 1918. He was always ready to pray or testify when he had an opportunity.

He caled me to his bedside before he took so bad, and told me what he wanted me to do if he did not get well. He said he was ready and willing to go if the Lord saw best, but would like to live to be with me and our little son, and to work for the Lord; but the Lord's will be done. He said to tell little son that papa's request was for him to always be a good boy and do right. He became delirious, but gained his right mind a short time before he passed away. He called us by name, to him and kissed us good bye.

He was so near gone that he could not talk much. His father said to him, "Son, are you trusting in Jesus?" He nodded his head yes and smiled. The baby kissed him and waved his little hand and said, "Bye bye, papa." He said "Bye bye, son." When he passed from the world such a sweet smile was on his face. 0, how blessed it is to die such a death. He said so many things to assure us that he was ready for the change.

Our home is lonely and sad without his presence, but I am determined by God's grace to meet him in heaven. Pray for us all, and especially his unsaved sister, Mrs. Mattie Mason. Bro. E.
