IN MEMORIAM: It is with deep regret we chronicle the death of our true and tried friend, Dan'l L. Burford, who died at his residence 2 1/2 miles south of Independence, Tate County, Mississippi, on the 10th day of November 1880. He suffered much and long and bore his affliction with a great deal of fortitude and ? . He was an old and institutional mason and he proved it by his works. He made a profession of religion in the year 1833? and in 1853 he united with the Baptist Church, the one of his choice and lived a ? and Christian until his death. he proved his Christianity by his liberality to the church, to the poor, and to the suffering, honestly and ? in a word he was really ? a helping hand of his monumental charity to all who was in distress. Ever working in Jesus when his place on earth would be ? in a ? and would pass the glittering ? of righteous prepared for the ? faithful. Rose of Sheron at the head of his grave neither would look as beautiful to the eye as his robe of righteousness which he put on while in the flesh. Or when he ? die he might be transfigured from this world of trouble, sorrow and affirmatives into the garden of immortality where there is joy, peace and happiness forever and ever. When we witness the last changes we can but say. "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, yes henceforth sayeth the Spirit they shall rest from their labor and their works do follow them." He leaves a wife and two children and many relatives besides a host of friends to mourn after him. We can only say our loss is his gain.
