welcomes them as permanent residents.
Grateful to Friends. We wish to express our since gratefulness to the many
friends who were so kind and thoughtful of CHELTON ELKINS while confined to
the hospital in Somerset. The kindness shown will always have a warm
remembrance in our hearts and will always be cherished by us. T.M. ELKIN and
Mrs. ETHEL KISER, the devoted wife of Albert Kiser, fell asleep in Jesus on
the 26th of December, 1919, at a hospital in Popatella, Idaho. She was born
in England and sailed to America when but a little girl and grew to womanhood
in the sunny southland. It was in Birmingham, Ala., she met and was married
to Mr. Kiser and they came to Ferguson about 14 years ago to make their home
where Mr. Kiser worked as a machinist in the R.R. shops. In February, 1915,
they went to Idaho to make for themselves a comfortable and happy home where
they lived until death claimed her. She leaves a husband and five children
in their loneliness and sorrow. Her self sacrificing devotion to her home
and her God most assuredly merited the commendation of Him who make no
mistakes. "He that loseth his life shall find it." She lost her life to the
selfish pleasures of earth and earthly enjoyments that she might find the
more abundant life in Him who was her light and life. Such a life so nobly
lived and so truly given to her Master's service renews our faith n the
doctrine of future rewards for those who live and die in Christ Jesus. This
death viewed in the light of the needs of her home and the demands for
sacrificial service, can not easily be understood, but in the light of that
day for which all other days were made, will be fully explained, "What I do
thou knowest not now but thou shall know hereafter." All things work
together for good to them who love God, to be called according to his
purpose." We are willing to wait beneath the shadow until the clouds are
lifted and the light of His justice and wisdom reveal His own divine lane in
the early death of Mrs. Kiser. One blessing from the breaking of a home
circle is that thus we are led to think of our better home. It is when
earthly good fails us that we learn to set our affections on heavenly good,
and to the bereaved we would say, "Not now, but in the coming years, it may
be in a better land, we'll read the meaning of our tears, and there,
sometime, we'll understand." The body was brought here for burial, funeral
services were conducted by the Rev. G.C. Sandusky assisted by Rev. W.E.
Hunter and Rev. T.C. Duke at the Ferguson Baptist church of which she was a
faithful member on January 2, 1920. The large concourse of broken hearted
friends who attended the services, attest the deep appreciation of her life
and their abiding sympathy for Mr. Kiser and children.
