DEATH OF MRS. HARVEY EVANS

Mrs. W. Harvey Evans, of Evans School Community, who died suddenly at her home Wednesday afternoon, presumably from heart disease, was well and happy when the family left at two o'clock to go to the field, returning at dusk to find her lying on the floor beside her bed.
Dr. R. G. Grant, of Holly Springs, was summoned but it was too late. It was thought she had been dead several hours. Her peaceful face showed she suffered no pain in taking flight of this world.
Mrs. Evans, who was before her marriage, Miss Audrey Poe, was born near Bethlehem forty years ago. She moved here with her husband twenty-two years ago and lived here until she died. She joined the Methodist Church at an early age and was known and loved everywhere for her goodness in sickness or trouble of any kind. She was a devoted wife and mother, her family's interests being dearer to her than anything else.
Funeral services were held Friday afternoon here at the Village Cemetery, Rev. Mr. Bailey of Waterford, holding services.
Surviving Mrs. Evans are her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Poe of Waterford, her husband, and children, Mrs. J. B. Hankins of Bethlehem and Thomas, Agnes, Garland, Victor, James Minor and Mary Nell Evans. She leaves four brothers, Wallace Poe of Charleston, Miss., and Raymond and Bernard Poe of Memphis, and Montgomery Poe of Waterford, and two sisters, Mrs. L. T. Black of Memphis and Miss Cecil Poe of Waterford.

ASLEEP IN JESUS
Martha Eliza, daughter of M. A. and Florence Evans, was born in Marshall County, Miss. July 30, 1875, and departed this life November 22, 1894.
We laid her body to rest in the Lebanon Cemetery but her spirit returned to him who said, "I go to prepare a place for you that where I am there ye may be also." To her parents she was kind and obedient, shedding forth in the home the light of love, purity and meekness.
She professed faith in Christ when quite young, and her life has been consistent and worthy the imitation of us all. She loved to go to the house of the Lord to hear His word expounded and join in singing the sweet songs of Zion. She has been heard to speak both in public and private of the love of Jesus, and his power to save from sin. The last song that she was heard to play and sing was "Are you ready for the Judgement Day." We believe from her testimony and life that she was ready for that day. Why this lovely girl that had just bloomed into womanhood was taken we know not. The poet tells us that
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform.
The bereaved parents and all the family have our deepest sympathy in this dark hour of trial.
