On last Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock Miss Anna Barfield, a sweet and noble girl, left this world of pain and sorrow. Anna was just entering into young womanhood, and it was hard to give her up; but how could we wish her back again to suffer? She had been sick nearly five weeks with typhoid fever, and her suffering was intense. We know her sweet voice and presence will be missed everywhere, and there is no one that can fill the vacant place of the loved one. But we can only say, “rest on, dear Anna,” for we feel assured that she is at rest.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved father, mother, brother and sisters.
ONE WHO LOVED HER.
LITTLE CLAUDE BERRY
On Tuesday, Aug. 25, 1903, our hearts were saddened by the shocking news that little Claude, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Thad Berry, had been taken by the harvesting angel, death. But it has pleased the Lord, in His all-wise judgment, to take Claude to Himself.
Claude was a sweet child; everybody loved him. Cease to mourn, dear father and mother, and bow in humble submission, as God knows and directs all for the best. He has been forever taken away; could not with him back again.
HIS AUNT DAISY.
