Another Has Fallen.

It has pleased Him, whose will and ways are perfect, to remove from our midst our worthy friend and brother, Samuel H. Bradford, on Tuesday evening, 27th September.  Brother Bradford was a great sufferer; he died of cancer; this disease made its appearance some two years ago, and its progress was slow, but it was sure of the fatal result.  In the case of brother Bradford we had frequent occasion to mark, with great satisfaction, both the mercy of God and the power of Christian religion.  The subject of this notice became a member of the M. E. Church, South, late in life; but was from that period and upright and Godly man; he was jealous of his Master’s cause and the glory thereof.  Although not confined to his room long before his death, he was conscious of his approaching end, and while awaiting the summons he was busy in arranging his temporal affairs; after disposing of his worldly business, with reference to the interest of each of his family, he quietly awaited his change.  Thus has passed away a zealous supporter of religion, a good neighbor, a kind husband, affectionate father, and devotee of F. A. Masonry.  May God bless his dear and bereft wife and children, and as they follow him to death and to the grave, may each die as did he—in the full triumph of the gospel faith, and all, some day, meet in that house above where bereavements and sufferings are unknown.

By order of the W. M. of F. A. M., of Cassville Lodge, No. 136, the following resolutions were drafted and adopted:

Whereas, it has pleased the Supreme Architect above to remove our worthy brother and friend,
Resolved, That masonry has lost a strong supporter of its principles and practice.
Resolved, That in token of our high regard of our brother, that this lodge be draped in mourning, and each member wear the usual badge for thirty days.
Resolved, That we, the members of this lodge, tender our condolence to the bereft family, and that a copy of these proceedings be sent to the family of the deceased.

Signed by the committee,
A. A Vincent
W. T. Weems
Thos. Adington.
