to the sick and afflicted. Within this year past she was stricken down with that fatal
disease, cancer internal. She suffered great pain and distress of body, but peace was
in her soul. When in extreme distress she often would say, "My savior suffered

on September 28th, Willie H. Jenkins, aged 6 years, 28 days; children of William
L. and A. S. Jenkins. Rarely has it been the lot of parents to part with two more
loving and interesting children. But God takes the fairest gems of earth to adorn
As vernal flowers that scent the morn,
But wither in the rising day,
Thus lovely was their infant dawn,
Thus swiftly flew their life away.
They died to sin-they died to care,
But for a moment felt the rod,
Then rising on the viewless air,
Spread their wings and soared to God.
