Geo. W. Coulter of this place has received news of the death of his only brother R.L. Coulter, of Chattanooga Tenn., on the 18 inst.

THE WATSON COMMUNITY

REED-at his home, on the morning of March 14, Mr. Frank Reed passed peacefully away. With sad and broken hearts, his devoted father, mother, brothers and sisters, and a large company of friends followed the remains to the grave.

He was a motorman for the North Texas Tractor Co., and there were 34 of his fellow motorman and conductor friends to pay their last tribute to their loved friend. There was not perhaps a young man in the entire community more generally loved and highly respected than was Frank Reed.

He realized that he was going to die and gave expressions of positive assurance that he was not afraid to die and that he was going home to die no more." The funeral services were conducted by Rev. D.C. Sibley at the cemetery, after which he was laid to rest in the Watson cemetery.

May God bless and comfort the sorrowing family and give us all a spirit of submission to our Fathers will.

NORTON HAMMACK

At 7:30 a.m. on the 11 inst. the spirit of sweet little Norton Hammack left the fever racked body and wended its way to a home in the mansions above where the dear Savior had prepared a place for it. A sweet little bud born on earth to open a full flower in the garden above where it will ever live. No blighting frost to nip it there. Christ said, "suffer little children to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." It is sweet to think our darling is a bright angel now. He was so loving and beloved by all, how much we will miss him; yet "not our will but thine be done." The little darling was taken with measles on Friday and on the next Friday he left us. May God comfort the sorrowing parents grandparents and friends. He was born in Arlington, Tx. to his parents, T.R. and Effie Hammack on Jan. 19, 1901. His stay on earth was short but O, how sweet! His little body was placed in the Oak Lawn cemetery Friday afternoon funeral services at grave by Rev. Little.
