CLEMENT. -- Death came suddenly to my father, Judge Isaac S. Clement, December 22, 1891. His native State was South Carolina, where he was born in Anderson, March 2, 1831. He came to Georgia in 1853, and four years later was admitted to the bar, continuing in active practice more than a quarter of a century. Fond of newspaper work, he was assistant editor of the Georgia Methodist two years, and owned and edited the Cumming Clarion sixteen years. He was postmaster in Cumming for some time, and was school commissioner of Forsyth county nearly twenty years, that being his last work. Such is the record of his public life, every act of which was characterized by the highest integrity. Happily married to Miss Mintie Bell, his home life was a model of purity and peace.

In 1855, he joined the Methodist Church, and remained one of her warmest advocates. Believing in entire sanctification, in 1885 he obtained the glorious experience, and was a daily witness to the truth and power of the doctrine he professed. Pain racked his slender form for thirty-nine long years, and the last five were spent in tortures of nervous prostration. Amid it all, no murmur of discontent was heard, no expression of wonder at the chastening of the Lord. In addition to his printed articles, he left many valuable manuscripts bearing the stamp of a logical, cultured mind. Brave, magnanimous, honest and sincere, with an intellect of remarkable strength and tenacity, he was a king among men and an honor to his race. The patient, suffering soul has entered into eternal rest. It has left the imprint of every Christian grace, an example that is more than rubies, and a memory that shall evermore be blessed. -- ELLA BRASWELL.
