    OBITUARY.

     

    John N. Roberts was born November 7, 1843, fell asleep trusting in Jesus June 6, 1908 [1909].

     

    In the early 70's he professed faith in Christ and was baptised by Elder Paul Walker. In 1889, under the preaching of Rev. J. J. Smith he received the blessing of full salvation. He was filled with peace, love and joy, rejoicing in God as only the true christian can.

     

    From that time he said he had no fears in death. His affliction lasted through many months, but he submitted himself to God and bore testimony to the last. He frequently spoke of his departure, and on the last sad night, calmly, as if preparing for a journey, he gave instructions concerning everything. He was conscious to the last, knew he was dying, said his time had come and he was glad to go. After telling us all good bye, giving us a parting message, telling us not to grieve, but rejoice, because all of his sufferings would be over, he breathed in his last in full hope of eternal life.

     

    "Asleep in Jesus!--blessed sleep,

    From which none ever wake to weep."

    STORMS.

     

    by Mrs. Ida May Roberts.

     

    I stand amid the storms of life

    Unmoved by tempest shock.

    I safely hide--my feet abide,

    On Christ the solid Rock.

     

    When young, the storms began to beat

    On my defenceless head,

    At mercy's call, I gave up all

    And to this refuge fled.

     

    I built on this foundation true,

    The winds may howl around,

    I have a sweet, a safe retreat,

    That no where else is found,

     

    Though storms grow fiercer, wilder still

    And vainly strive to shake,

    My refuge sure, will prove secure,

    For God will not forsake.

     

    My Father rules, then I can sing,

    And smile at fiercest blast

    Let tempests roar, they will soon be o'er

    I'll reach my home at last.

     

    At times when everything seemed lost,

    The waves rolled mountain high,

    My Lord appeared, His voice I heard,

    "Be not afraid 'tis I."

     

    All things are working for my good

    I have made God my stay,

    I lean for rest, upon His breast,

    Whom winds and waves obey.

     

    The last great storm is yet to come,

    Supreme and final test,

    But then I'll find, all powers combined

    Can not disturb my rest.

     

    Ah; that will be an awful time,

    When all of earth gives way,

    I'll fly from storm, and earthly harm,

    To everlasting day.

    Miss Vienna Roberts'
    Marriage A Surprise.

     

    Miss Vienna Roberts was married at Murphysboro, Ills., Dec. 3rd, 1911 to Edward H. Harding.

     

    The bride is well known to portions of this county having been born and raised here. She taught four schools here, but feeling a call to gospel work, she resigned that profession, and for over a year has been in active, public service for the Master. During this time, she has traveled in West Virginia, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri and Ohio, and has preached to hundreds, and the power of God is with her, and the beautiful saintly life that she lives every day, is enough to convince men the gainsayer, that her mission is divine.

     

    The groom is also a young minister, a fine singer and musician. Immediately after the ceremony the couple left for Hickman, Ky., the home of Mr. Hardings parents, where they expect to spend a few days, and then go forth again in gospel work. May success and happiness attend them.

     

    A friend.
