In Memoriam.

Died of pneumonia on the 18th of November, in Cartersville, VINCENT EUGENE BELL, son of V. P. Bell, deceased, and Mary E. Bell, age four years, six months and sixteen days.  Few have been called upon to endure the bereavement laid upon the weeping, widowed mother.  Only ten months ago she lost a devoted husband, soon thereafter an infant daughter, and now her oldest child.  The joy of her life and hope of future years is taken from her.  The child was playful, affectionate, dutiful and promising.  And did not the gospel afford us the hope that the grave would give up its dead, and the redeemed inherit Heaven, life would be an intolerable burden.  But in the light of a better hope let us dry up the fountain of tears, and be content to “walk by faith.”  The Savior assured us he loved little children.  There is it well with the child, for he is—
“Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe from corroding care,
Safe from the world’s temptations,
Sin cannot harm him there.
Free from the blight of sorrow,
There by His love overshaded,
Sweetly his soul shall rest.”
G. S. T.
