HALEY, MARY D. - We tender our sympathies to the stricken ones concerned in the paragraph below, which is taken from the Clarksville, Texas, Times.  The deceased was the mother of Mrs. J. H. Phillips, of our town, who learned the saddening intelligence of her mother's death while hastening to her bedside.

Mrs. Mary D. Haley, wife of M. W. Haley, Sr., of Albion, Texas, departed this life Oct. 10th 1880 at 12:15 p.m.  She was the daughter of L. H. Nunnelly, of Hickman county, Tenn -- where she was born April 30th, 1833.  She was an exemplary Christian, magnifying the grace of God in her every day life, by her Godly walk and conversation.  She was a faithful companion, a tender mother, and a kind friend.  She triumphed over death and entered her Master's joy.  To know her was to love her.  She was the wife of Mr. Haley 18 years, and all these years furnished such a contrast to his present desolation that the strong man bows himself in sorrow and tears.  We tender our sympathies to all the bereaved family and pray for their comfort.  Let us meet her in Heaven.

HANN, DESSIE - Death visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Hann and took from them their bright angel Dessie. She was born Dec. 23, 1884, died August 4th, 1902. The funeral was held at Anderson's Chappel, Bro. Spivie conducting the services which were very impressive. She joined the Christian church at an early age and lived a consistent member of the same till death. She was faith full in attendance upon the preached word. May the broken hearted submissively say, "Our Dear Dessie is dead she has gone to her gone to her place that Jesus has prepared for her, and her noble traits of character will live through all time she was of a jovial disposition, yet deeply joins, and strictly temperate, and all who knew her were her friends she leaves a grand mother and father brother and host of friends, to mourn her departure, to whom we extend our deepest sympathy. "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh a way. Blessed be the name of the Lord." - A FRIEND

HARRIS, JAMES DENNIS - "Gone but not forgotten".  Dennis Harris, a young man of our vicinity, who went to El Paso, Texas, Oct. 9, for his health, died Dec. 20.  He had that dreadful disease, consumption, and hoped by going there to improve his health, but it seems that fate was against him.  His remains were brought back to his many friends at this place and placed in the family cemetery, after the funeral service, which was conducted by Bro. J. H. Hull, who made a beautiful talk on the subject: "He being dead yet speaketh."  Dennis was a member of the Missionary Baptist Church.  His name had been written in Lamb's Book of life and his soul had been washed in the blood of the lamb and made whiter than snow, something that we all rejoice to know.  It was sad, indeed, to hear of his departure.  Yet we rejoice to know that he has passed from death unto life.  "It is not all of life to live neither is it all of life to die."  O, how dad and lonely are our hearts.  Never shall his memory fade away.  Sweet thoughts shall ever linger round the grave where where Dennis is laid.  Friends may think the wound is healed.  Little do they know our sorrow.  Rest in peace, dearest brother.  Some sad days have passed away.  Thou art gone but not forgotten. 

One by one the flowers are taken.

One by one the roses fall,

And we carefully remember,

Pain and sorrow comes to all.

God has given God has taken.  Dearest Dennis we must bear the pain.  Written by his brother in Christ, Archie Peeler
