On Friday, Sept. 12th, 1912, the 10 month old son of Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Mercer died. The little body was laid to rest in the Packsaddle cemetery. A short talk was made at the grave by the writer.
While it seems hard to be forced to say good-bye here, yet we know that it will be for only a time and then eternal joy shall be ours, and so with another we may say: "Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning."
O. E. Enfield.
