MAIN, of Mount Ayr, Iowa, Mr. and Mrs. C. T. JENNINGS, of Redding, Iowa, two great-grandmothers, aunts, uncles and cousins, a host of other relatives and
friends."We need love's tender lessons taught
As only weakness can;
Goth hath his small interpreters;
The child must teach the man.
Of such thy kingdom - teach thou us,
O Master most devine,
To feel the deep significance
Of these wise words of thine!
The haughty eye shall seek in vain
What innocense beholds;
No cunning finds the key of heaven,
No strength its gate unfolds.
Along to guileness and to love
This gate shall open fall;
The mind of pride is nothingness,
The childlike heart is all."
Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church in Redding, March 11,
conducted by Rev. Frank ULLERY, of Blockton. The body was laid to rest in Redding cemetery.Card of Thanks.
We are profoundly grateful to all the neighbors and friends for the kindness and sympathy so generously bestowed during the illness and on the occasion of the death
and funeral of our little son.
MR. AND MRS. RALPH JENNINGS.
