Death of a Young Lady.

Miss Lula McCandless, daughter of Mr. Samuel T. McCandless, died last Sunday morning about 6 o’clock, after a long illness. She was perfectly resigned and prepared to go.

Miss McCandless was about 18 years of age, a member of the Methodist church and was a most loveable young lady. She had a large number of friends who sincerely mourn her death.

The funeral services occurred Monday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, conducted by Rev. H. J. Ellis, assisted by Rev. J. S. Hillhouse. Her remains were followed to their last resting place by a large number of friends and relatives.

In Memory of Charlie Thomas and Leila McCandless.

Death, the angel with silent tread, has recently visited our society and borne from us two of our members, Mr. Charlie Thomas and Miss Leila McCandless.

They were both faithful members of our society in heart. Charlie was always with us until he was confined at his home; and although Leila could not be with us in person for many months before she died, yet we knew that she was in heart.

While it seems strange to us that they were snatched away so young, with their work unfinished and life’s brightest and best promises unfulfilled, we know God’s will is best and calmly bow to this dispensation of His will. Although we are deprived of their work here with us, who knows but what they are together, engaged in a greater and a more glorious work in our Savior’s presence.

Let us keep their memory fresh and green and endeavor to profit by their lives of Christian beauty, uprightness and usefulness. Therefore , be it
Resolved by the Juvenile Missionary society, first: That in the death of these two persons we have lost two of our most faithful members, and heaven has gained two more bright jewels.
Second, That we bow with resignation to an All-wise Providence and pray that the examples and lives of these, our friends, may better fit us for our work on earth and our home in heaven after death.
Third, That a copy of these resolutions be furnished to each bereaved family and one to the Courant-American, with the request that they be published.
