PROPER TIME AND PLACE
It is of importance to remember
that next Monday in Ocala the mem members
bers members of the state railroad commis commission
sion commission will meet the representatives of
the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard
railroads to consider the question of
the long and short haul law which
should have gone into effect eleven
weeks ago and which vitally affects
the matter of freight rates in this
state. Our merchants, truckers,
fruit growers and shippers of all
kinds are heavily interested in this
matter and they ought to be well
represented at the. Ocala meeting.
The railroads are not complying with
the law for what they claim are

Letcher Ray Russell, darling son
of Mr. R. R. and Mrs. E. M. Russell,
was born on October 12th. 1905, and
died near Anthony, March 10, 1314.
The funeral at the Methodist
church here, conducted by Rev. M.
II: Outland, pastor, was attended by
a large congregation of sympathiz sympathizing
ing sympathizing friends of the bereaved family.
The public school was suspended for
the hour, the children of his own age
bringing most beautiful flowers to
place on his casket, andgrave. Each
one seemed to vie with the other, in
doing something nice to honor their
playmate, who had gone from them.
A beautiful, though brief life, was
his. A little more than eight years
he had spent in this world. The last
months of his life, he was a great
sufferer from stomach trouble, which
finally brought death to his body;
but his pure spirit has gone to the
Savior, who said: "Suffer the little
children to come unto me." Yes,
Letcher has gone to heaven, the
home of the happy and saved ones.
The little sufferer had been re resigned
signed resigned to his fate for quite awhile,
understanding that he could not be
well again. He had often said,
"Mamma, don't worry about me,
I'm all right. I know papa and you
have done all you could." With
those words, and many more, ,he
tried to encourage his heart-broken
mother and father. Is it any wonder
that one so unselfish as he should
be removed from all suffering, to a
blessed place, where they never say,
"I am tired." This sketch would
not be complete, without the follow following
ing following from the pen of Mrs. W. H.
Webb, composed in memory of Let Letcher:
cher: Letcher: Resting in the arms of Jesus,
Snow-white soul, of one we love.

To the happy home above.
Resting in the arms of Jesus,
Never more "I'm tired," to say,

'Resting in the arms of Jesus,
Safe from everything that harms.
leart to heart with Him, forever
In the everlasting arms.
'Let us follow in his footsteps,
Trusting in the Saviour's love.
Lo, his little hands are beckoning
To the home of rest above.
'Saviour, in Thy great compassion,
Keep Thy tender arms of love
Round the parents, brother, sisters,
Till they all shall meet above."
