The death of Mr. W. R. Joines brought quite a crowd to our community--Messrs. Clyde and Guy Joines, Theo. Koch and Willie Koch and families of Beaumont, Mrs. Ruby Plant of El Campo; Messrs. Alexander, Calvin, Otis, Tommy and George Joines; Mesdames Wingate and Wiles and Joines and Edward Morrow, all of Houston were here to attend the funeral.

This community was shocked last Thursday when it was learned that Mr. W.R. Joines had passed away suddenly at his home about 2 o'clock Thursday morning. W. R. Joines came to this county in 1893, and has resided in the Buhler settlement since that time. Besides his family he enjoyed a wide circle of friends, all of whom will mourn his passing.  W. R. Joines died March 18, 1937.

Mrs. Sallie A. Joines

On March 23rd, 1916, Mrs. Sallie A. Joines, our friend and neighbor, died in Galveston where she was taken in January to under go an operation.  Mrs. Joines would have been 38 years old in April. She has spent nearly the whole of her married life at her home near Buhler. She was born and reared in Tennessee, and was converted just as she blossomed into womanhood and became a member of the Methodist church, remaining a faithful worker to the end.  This loved and loving wife, mother, sister, friend died where womanhood's morning touches noon, and while the shadows had hardly turned from the west. It seems to us that her life was cut off by the.....too soon, but when the message comes for the soul to step across to life--celestial life--real life, the body does not resist but gives up its carefully guarded jewel with scarce a struggle and surely no regret. We see it come to the children, pure and sweet; we see it come to the boys and girls while life is sweet before them; we see it come to the mothers and fathers while they are still co-workers with the Divine in molding the lives of their little ones; and then to the aged with their wrinkled brow and hair of snow; we see it all along the way. So death had no terrors for our friend. She knew her condition and seemed to welcome the end as a relief from pain and sorrow. She now rests under the shade of the trees and awaits the coming of her loved ones.  Mrs. Joines leaves a husband, eleven children, two grand children, one brother and a number of relatives here in our midst to mourn her loss and her gain.  Funeral services were held at the family home which was filled to overflowing with relatives and friends. The remains were then carried to the grave made ready just back of the home. Her six brothers-in-law acted as pallbearers. As the casket was made ready to be lowered "Asleep in Jesus" was sung softly and a prayer offered.  She was remembered kindly by her friends by several beautiful offerings of flowers. 

She has peace and joy and gladness
With never, never pain,
And into this world of sadness
She will not come back again.
But is waiting over yonder,
Just across the border land,
And it seems that we can see her
Reaching out a loving hand,
Saying "little ones, my children
It is such a restful place,
It is glorious, glorious, glorious,
I can see my Savior's face."

Ethel Hemphill Joines

With sadness we chronicle the death of Mrs. Clarence Joines, which occurred in Houston Sunday morning. She had recently undergone an operation for removal of an abscess on the brain and was doing nicely, thought to be out of danger, but early Sunday morning took a relapse which resulted in her death. She was 27 years of age, and a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Hemphill, of Oconto, Nebraska, who with the grief-stricken husband, two sisters and four brothers are left to mourn her loss. The remains were shipped to Francitas for burial. Our sympathy goes out to the bereaved.

Clifford Turner Martin, the little six year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Martin, died Saturday afternoon, April 9th, 1921 at about two o'clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Carvell near Buhler.

There are flowers in every home. Some bloom longer than others, but not more beautiful. But you know God controls the flowers that bloom so lovely today, and tomorrow are cast into the fire. Consider the lillies of the field, how they grow "they toil not, neither do they spin." They are beautiful and sweet, and "even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." But there is nothing more glorious nor more holy than a dear sweet child which god has given to bless the home. If ever a child blessed a home little Clifford did. As this sweet flower blessed the home here and all of its friends so it will bless heaven. Why God called it home no one knows, but we know that God's ways are best. So we bade him goodbye that he might go home to glory to be with God and the angels.   --Contributed
