<>Last week, in the death of J. S. Churchill, this community lost one of the best citizens it has ever contained. The writer has known Mr. Churchill only a few years, but in this time we came to regard him very highly as a true, unobtrusive Christian gentleman.

Although blind and unable to work, his was one of the most cheerful dispositions we have ever known, and his example of fortitude is worthy of emulation. It was a pleasure to meet with him. His cheery "good-morning" was a benediction that would remain with a thoughtful man for hours.

Only a brave man could have borne his affliction with such a cheerful face, and scattered sunshine along the way.

During the Civil War he was a Captain in the Union Army and this promotion was no doubt won by the same devotion to duty that characterized his later life.

His wife and children should, and will, cherish his memory as a precious heritage. Without exaggeration, the Bulletin believes it can say that Burnet County has never possessed a more worthy citizen, the church a more consistent Christian, a family a more devoted and upright husband and father.

Peace to his ashes.
