;] ijeprge A iff el Am^s, son of * igt^pben and Eligi Ames, was [lb*!|ft rmar $lrnore, 0., Sept. 18, I Igfti and departed this lite Oct.
^14,190^*9^23 years and 28 days, i^The deceased had been a sufferer I for several years, during which
time he made a heroic struggle against disease. Through all this he was sustained by a trustful faith in God and by an iron will which was his by nature. When it became necessary for the phy¬ sical powers to surrender to the torch of death, his faith appeared as an anchor to the sole, both sure and steadfast, and ^entering into that within the veil.
Alfred possessed in a marked degree those elements that con¬ stitute true manhood. Honesty, integrity and virtue were his in such measure ^as to win for him a host of friends. In the home he was ever obedient, faithful and true. Two years ago he was converted in a meeting heldin the Methodist church at Worstville and united with the church at that time, and since then had been a faithful servant iii the Master's vineyard. He was baptized by the Rev. J. H. Eodgers, Aug. 14, 1903. His life and death together form a fitting exponent of the Christian relig¬ ion. It guided him in life and sustained him in death.
Such resignations to the Lord* s will, such willingness to follow where He leads, are rarely seen, even in those far advanced in life. He built his life upon the eternal Rock of Ages, so that death to him, became the gate¬ way into everlasting life and pe£ee.
The funeral services were held in the Methodist church at Worst¬ ville, Saturday, Oct. 17. Rev. E. S. Weaver of Continental former pastor of the deceased preached the sermon, he was as¬ sisted in the services by Rev. W. H% hoy of Latty. The re- wains were laid to rest in the Wj^ste cemetery "Precious in the sight of the Lord is thq death of His Saints."
