choir. The minutes of previous meet
ing were read and approved, the lesson
in geology was conducted by the Presi

obtained, supplemented as it was by a
lively discussion of the subject under
consideration, and the exhibition of a
number of rare geological specimens by
Dr. Fullerton. Miss Inskeep' favored
the assembled company with a recitation,

A Former Resident or
City tho Victim.
Frank Morrow Found Dead la the
Southern Hotel, San Antonla, Texas
Chloroform the Supposed
Cause of Ills Death.
About nine o'clock last Sunday night
a telegram was received at the Western
Union office from San Antonio, Texas,
announcing the death in that city of
Mr. Frank Morrow, second son of Mr.
and Mrs. W. A. Morrow, of this city.
A burst of thunder from n cloudless
sky would not have caused a one-thousandth
part the surprise and shock tills
news, which quickly spread, created
among the residents of this city, where
he was reared and where he was so well
known. No explanation of the cause of
his death accompanied tho short tele
gram, and all were left to conjecture.
No further particulars were received
until Monday, when the Cincinnati En
quirer contained a dispatch from San
Antonio stating that the unfortunate
young man had died in the Southern
Hotel in that city, from the effects of
chloroform taken with suicidal intent,
and assigning a love affair as the cause
of the rash stop. This is the only ver
sion of the sad occurrence obtainable at
the time of our going to press, and it
may not be strictly reliable.
Instructions were telegraphed to San
Antonio to have the remains sent to
this place, but it was too late to do so,
as death occurred on Thursday, and the
remains had been already interred. The
authorities had telegraphed to Frank's
address at New Orleans and the tele
gram had been re-sent from that place,
which accounts for the delay. Learning
of this the family decided to postpone
the removal of the remains at least for
Mr. Tandy Ayres telegraped the fam
ily here from Laredo, informing them of
the affair and offering such assistance as
might have been needed, but giving no
particulars. The proceedings of the
coroner's inquest will probably throw
additional light on tho tragedy, and will
be awaited with deep interest by his
many sympathizing friends here.
Few things that havo happened ever
cast a deeper gloom over the commu
nity than the intelligence of the death
of Frank Morrow. Ho was a young
man of more than ordinary culture and
intellectual worth, a kind, true and self
denying friend, and withal very quiet
and reserved. Again is exemplified the
truth of the old adage "Death loves a

where he clerked for a time in Conklin's
drugstore, leaving that position to ac
cept a clerkship in the Southern Pacific

About a year ago this office was trans
ferred to New Orleans, where, after a
short time Frank was promoted to a
better position in the auditing depart

spending a few days' vacation in San

knowledge of his having left New Or

will miss him most. His parents and

The new Armory was opened under
very auspicious circumstances on Mon
day evening by the Martha Wren Com,
edy Company in Dion Bouclcault's beau
tiful old Irish drama, "The Colleen
Bawn," the presentation of which was
worthy of unbounded praise. Miss
Wren, as "Eilly O'Connor," won her
way into the hearts of the audience, al
though the lack of orchestral accompani
ment detracted materially from her vocal
numbers. In spite of this draw-back
she was repeatedly applauded and en
cored, which is all the more flattering to
Miss Wren, because the applause couldn't
have been meant for the accompaniment.
Mr. James Collins, as "Miles NaCappa
leen," the big-hearted Irish lad, was all
that could be desired. His acting and
singing made him a personal friend of
every one in the audience, which was
very large in fact the hall was complete
ly filled. In the recitation of "Poor
Jack O'Leary," Mr Collins held the au
dience in spell-bound silence, and the
people who wiped their eyes were scarce
compared with those who wanted to cry
but feared it would look undignified,
and the fervor and feeling Mr. Collins
and Miss Wren throw into their rendi
dition of those quaint, characteristic
melodies of "Owld Oireiand, begorra,"
would make glad tho shade of Tom
Moore. The support is good and the
scenery and stage mechanism beyond
comparison. Tuesday night "The News
boy," a drama full of comedy and pathos,
was produced in which the company
fully sustained the reputation earned on
their opening night. They play each
night this week, with change of bill
nightly, and should business warrant
will give a Saturday matinee.
Bound Over Perury.
J.M.Townsend,from the neighborhood
of Farmers Sta., was arrested last Satur
day charged with perjury in having
aworn to a false affidavit in replevin, in
order to gain possession of some account
books that had been kept by David Hays
as the agent for a grange store at that
place. After running the establishment
for some time the association had sold
out to Mr. Hays and turned stock and
books oyer to him. Later they conclud
ed that Hays had not settled fairly, and
he was sued by the Association in the
Common Pleas Court of this county for
a1 balance they claimed due, which suit
is now pending in tho Circuit Court
Townsend and his attorneys came to
this city to examine the books, and
when they secured possession they filed
the affidavit in replevin, claiming that
the books were the property of the As
sociation, and that Hays and his attor
ney, Mr. O. H. Collins, were unlawfully
detaining them, and that they had re
fused on demand to give them up. This
charge ,Haya claime to be false and hence
the charge for perjury. In the trial be

day, after the examination of a number
of witnesses, Townsend was bound over
to court in the sum of $500, which was
given and he was released. The charge

Tho community of Hollowtown was
greatly shocked on Wednesday evening
of last week on learning that a little
child of Jacob Ridings, aged one year
and eleven months, had fallen in a bar
rel of water and was taken out dead.
The child had not been missed but a few
minutes when search was made by Mrs.
Ridings, the mother of the child, she
being the only person at the house at
the time. She soon discovered the feet
of the unfortunate little one above the
water in the barrel, which was partly
sunk in the ground and was used for a
swill tub. Mr. Ridings and his mother
were but a short distance from the house
and were soon present to witness the
sad scene and share the grief of the
sorrow-stricken mother. The funeral
services were held at the house the fol
lowing day and were conducted by Rev.
Lorh, of Taylorsville, after which the re
mains were interred in tho Hopkin's
cemetery, where it was consigned to the
care of Him who has said, "Suffer little

Departed this life Nov. 13th, 1886, Susan E.,
wife or M. D. Britton, and daughter of Joshua
and Janette Brown, in the 13d year of her age.
She leaves a husband and eight bright little
children in sadness to mourn her untimely
death. Nipped like the delicate flower by
autumn's untimely frost, she faded too soon
from earth. Why such bright, sonny, loving
satnres are so soon transplanted from this
world of sadness, we will only know when we
too shall have passed the silent portals of the
Educated in the Hillsboro Female College
she engaged for a time in teaohing school.
Her thoroughness in the branches taught, en
abled her to be successful, and a loreable dispo
sition made her a general favorite. Her mar
ried life has been one of unceasing devotion to

in the love of her Savior she seemed to fear no

"Shall we meet her beyond the river,
Where the surges cease to roll." J. B.
VBS. VATTHI1S SABS,
Departed this life very suddenly and unex
pectedly November 7th, 1886. Her death was
quite a shock to the neighbors as well aa to
the family. As we noted in onr last they had
sold their farm and stock here, and bought
land in Indiana and were to start there last
Tuesday. But instead of Mrs. Barr going
west her spirit went to the final home that ia
prepared for those who follow the Savior.
Mrs. Barr went to bed Saturday night ap
parently as well as common. About ten
o'clock she got np and said that she was cold.
She sat by the fire awhile and soon became
speechless. She was helped to bed and Dr.
Debase sent for, but he could do nothing for
her. It was thought to be heart disease. Her
last sickness was brief, only lasting about four
Mrs. Barr was born in Brown county, Sept.
SOtb, 1823, being 63 years, 1 month, and six
days old at her death. She Joined the M. E.
Church when about IS years of age, and lived
faithfully until her death. Mrs. Barr leaves a
husband and seven children to mourn her
death. The funeral senrioes were conducted by
Uev. L. M. Davis, of Lynchburg, after which
the remains were laid to await the resurrection
morn, in the Barker cemetery. The stricken
family nave the sympathy of the entire com
munity in there sad bereavement. Mrs. Barr
had lived in this community about fifty years.
Shadows from the bending trees
O'er thy lowly head may pass,
Sighs from every wandering breeze,
Btlr the long, thick churchyard grass.
Wilt thou heed them? No; thy sleep
Shall be dreamless, calm and deep.
Some sweet bird may sit and sing,
On the marble of tby tomb,
Soon to flit on joyous wing,
From that plaoe of death and gloom,
On some bough to warble clear ;
Bnt these songs thou shalt not hear.
Some kind voice may sing thy praise,
Passing near thy place of rest,
Fondly talking of "other days" )
But no throb within tby breast
Shall rjspoud to words of praise,
Or old thoughts of other days.
Since so fleeting is thy name.
Talent, beauty, power and art,
It were well that without blame
Thou in God's great book were writ ;
There in golden words to be
Graven for eternity. L. D.
