Leon McCartor, eldest eon af Mr.
and Mra. Frank C. McCartor (former
ly Jennie Noble) waa born In Mia
sou la. Montana, twenty-one yeara ago
and died in Oakland, Calif., on April
2, 1M4. Being in the heyday of
youth, hia disease was unexpected
and called forth a flood of aympathy
for the afflicted family.
Leon waa a most devoted son,
whose life was an ever increasing joy
and aatitfaction to his parents who
caw in hia trained ability and his
sterling character what seemed to be
the promise of a fine career. Like
Paul's "son in the Gospel," he had
known the scriptures from a child,
havii.g the unequaled advantage of a
Christian home and the fostering
care of the church. With such in
fluence about him he had become,
like Timothy, "an example to them
that believed in word, in manner of
life, in love, in faith, in purity."
His life, though short in years, waa
long in love and service for his Mas
ter. The influence of such a life has
been very beautiful. He though in
terms of the spiritual. To him God
and Jeaua, his Saviour, were very real
and service for his fellow men. He
had consecrated his life to the Lord's
work and at the time of hia death
was preparing to study medicine. Had
he not been called just now to live
in the mansion of the King, he would
no doubt have done many good things
as a physician, in the Lord'a name.
Hia course in the University of
California had been most creditable
and he was approaching hia com
mencement with high hopes and
splendid prospects. But all the yeara
of preparation were destined for
other ends. If we were unbelieving

we would ssy thst It was all In vain,
but baring the illumination of our
holy religion wt can acquiesce in that
biassed Will of God which orders all
aright; and we can well believe that
Leon's gifts and graces can be nsee
to higher advantage in the heavenly
kingdom than in carrying out the
noblest career that was possible here
below. If it had been known he had
only twenty-one years to live, the
time could scarcely have been put to
better use, for such training as be
received would be a worthy prepara
tion for the Ufe that now is or the
life that Is to come.
Though busy with his studies he
had served as a teacher In the San
day school and was president of the
Epworth League of the First Method
ist Church in Oakland. He never
wanted to be conspicuous as a leader
but was very humble. He was alao
good company and was loved and re
spected by all who knew him. He
will be missed by many at the Ep
worth League institutes this summer.
Although he is missed and his dear
ones and friends grieve because they
will not see him again on this earth,
all are comforted by Christ's words,
"I am the renurreetion and the life;
t he that belJeveth In me, though he
were dead, yet shall he live."
The funeral service, songs and
many beautiful flowers were so in
keeping with his life.
Rev. 21-4: And God shall wipe
away all tears from their eyes; and
there shall be no more death, neither
sorrow, nor crying, neither shal 1
there be any more pain; for tha for
mer things are passed away.
