The passing of a good woman
on Monday morning at 2 :30
o'clock, when the majority of the
people of our town were taking
their slumber, and were uncon
scious of the world's doings, the
spirit of Mrs. Jus. Smith took its
Higlit to the unseen world. The
funeral sermon was preached by
Rev. Sparks, of Columbus. He
used Phil. 1 : 21, for the basis of
his remarks. Mrs. Smith was a
noble woman, one of the women in
our town that had the womanhood
to rebuke sin in all its forms. She
often nnd earnestly prayed for the
conversion of her friends, and
made the remark that she hoped
for the saving of all. She was
one of the strongest supporters of
the Methodist Church, at tills
place, a devotod mother, a faith
ful companion, a good citizen, and
an obliging noighbor. And honce
a noble woman is gone, another
lnme is sad and lonely, another
chair is vacant ut home and in the
church, another fresh mound of
dirt is in the cemetery, another
pair of hards are folded across
the breast. Almost the whole
town turned out to pay their last
respects, which is evidence wo are
sorry she is dead becuuso we were
glad she lived. Whilo we can not
always Bee the wisdom in remov
ing our best citizens from our
midst, we should always have the
words of the poet in our minds,
which rend as follows:
Judge not the Lord In feeble cuiuv,
Hut triiBt Him for IJIs gruue,

The Coming Struggle.
The prosperity of this country
is very much like that of ancient
Rome in the times of Oiusnr and
Catalite. It has more wealth in
fewer hands than any other coun
try in the world. The number of
poor people is growing even faster
than the wealth of the rich people.
But Catalino has come again,
and Ciesar will bo here tomorrow.
As in old Rome the ngrnrian forces
are stronger in numbor&, and cour
age, und experience of the world
than the plutocratic forces. There
is no doubt as to what will huppen
when they find a leader strong
enough to unite their factions in
to one grand army of the discon
tented. And unless the Republi
can party can be dislodged by the
bullot as tho Democrats would
have done, it will bofore long be
dislodged us the Roman Sennte
was by Ciesur at the head of an
agrarian army. All patriotio men
should unito with the party which
has for more than a century advo
cated liberty by supporting the
Constitution. That is the only
way to savo tb,e country from
Ciusarisni. For, ns wo have said,
Catalino has ulreudy come, and is
prepuring tho way for military
despotism under which tho for
tunes of the rich will bo confiscat
ed to furnish tho means for paying
the wages of a Praetorian Guard.
If the people can't have liberty
and fraternity along with equality,
they will have equality without
llborty or fraternity, Scciullnm is
growing because there is no Jus
tice under the present government,
whioh acts in defiance of tho Con
stitution, Democracy is the only
teuiedy for socialism nnd plutoc
