OBITUARY

Albert Newton Adams, son of W. 
B. and Maggie Adams was born 
April 26th, 1876, and departed this 
life July 31st, 1911 at the age of 35 
years, 3 months and 5 days.
For some time he had been a 
great sufferer, but all that loving 
hearts and willing hands could 
do was done, but there comes a 
time to each human when earthly rem-
edies and human aid are of no avail. 
So after many weary and painful 
hours and sleepless nights death 
came to his relief, and he calmly 
fell asleep.
   The light has gone out, and the 
shadow of a great sorrow has set-
tled upon his once cherished home. 
   The associations of life are bro-
ken up forever. The voice which 
spoke to us is heard no more, but 
he will ever live in our memory.
   Although not identified as a mem-
ber of any church, he was an earn-
est christian and a firm believer in 
the teachings of our Saviour.  Real-
izing his critical condition, he dem-
onstrated by his patient suffering, 
and constantly reading the bible 
that his help was divine.  He was a 
dutiful son and loving brother, 
and although home ties were very 
strong, he was willing and ready to 
go.  He leaves father, mother, five 
sisters, Mrs. Charles Waltz, Mrs. 
Cortez Mitchell and Misses Carrie, 
Opal and Orpha Adams, and one 
brother, Hal Adams. He was a mem-
ber of the Odd Fellows' lodge. 
   His sunny disposition won for him 
many friends and, he will be sadly 
missed. "Now we see through the 
glass darkly, but sometime we will 
understand."
   He has entered the Great Be-
yond, where he needs no more the 
loving care of those so dear to him,
and we commit him to a just and 
loving Father's care, knowing He
doeth all things well.
