Ernest Chambers Dead
Bro. Joab Chambers and wife were called to give up their youngest son to that grim tyrant of our race called death. Ernest was their baby boy and would have been 16 years of age on the 12th of this month. He was first taken sick with typhoid fever about six weeks ago, but was recovering from that when pneumonia set up and his enfeebled body succumbed and he passed from earth Jan. 1st, 1911, at the home of his parents 4 miles north of town.
The funeral was conducted by the writer from the Baptist Church Monday, Jan. 2nd at 2 p.m., assisted by Bro. Z. H. Hall. The lesson was from Jno. XI:1-11, text Jno. 11:25. Appropriate hymns were tenderly rendered, the parting look taken, and we took the white casket to the Zoar Cemetery and laid him to rest beside three other children who had gone on before. He had always helped his mother with her house work and as he lay in the casket his pallid face looked more like a young girl than a boy.
May the Lord in His providence bless this bereft home and guide them all safely to the Better Land is my prayer.
