OBITUARY.
Y. Mrs. Laura. ophia Tebbetts entered
ap. into eternal life on Friday evening,
By March 6. 18f.
to She was born on her father's plan
tin. tation in Claiborne. county, Miss.,
one March 14. 1816. In 1841 she was
ade united in holy matrimony to Hiram B.
sere Tebbetts. M. D.. a native of Northfield,
igh N. H., and lived for many years on
ets Concord Plantation, near Lake Prori
or dence, Carroll Parish, La. Four child
rea were born to them, of whom there
un. are still living Hiram W. Tebbetts, M.
go, 1)., of Los Angeles, Cal., Mrs. Howard
F. Hill, of Concord, N. H., and W. B.
N. Tebbetts, of Denver. Col.
Mrs. Tebbetrs was taken ill with
arg, acute bronchitis and attendant compli
cations, under which she rapidly de
clined until she passed into the true
hug life beyond, surronnded by comfort
rk, and affection, and sustained by the
aill assurance of continuity with her God
and Savior.
Lhe The following is taken from the New
he, Hampshire Patriot, published in Con
of cord, N. H.
There are now only a few living in
this parish that knew this kindly' lady.
or, who was many years ago the central
,rk figure of the home-life of the Concord
hr- plantation, then one of the most beauti
ful and comfortable homes of Carroll
parish.
Jis At the close of the late war Dr.
sas Hiram B. Tebbetts sold his plantation,
and removed with his family to Con
cord, N. H., his native State, where he
he had provided a lovely home for them.
nu In this beautiful city their children
d- grew to man's and woman's estate,
and married.
) Dr. Tebbetts died some years ago,
er leaving his most devoted wife to mourn
his loss. She had her children to com
fort and solace her, and lived anew in
a- their families to whom she was most
B. warmly attached.
n. Notwithstanding her long absence
from the South. she. to the very last,
Smanifested the most lively interest in
is her old plantation-home, and all the
It people who were once her friends and
neighbors.
Those of us who knew her will
e mourn her loss with sincere grief, and
extend to the bereaved ones the most
11 heartfelt sympathy.

The citizens of East Carroll are
gratified to bear of the appointment
of Mr. W. C. McRae as Assessor to
succeed Mr. J. S. Guenard. The
Governor could not have made a bet.
ter appointment. Mr. McRae has all
his life been one of the most fearless
supporters of Democracy, and has
never failed to respond to the call of
his party. No man in the parish has
done more Individual service than he
has; and in his appointment the wishes
of a large majority of the people have -
been gratified. A hard fight was
made by both sides, and his appoint
ment Is i triumph, not only for him. t
self, but for his friends also. Democ- 1
racy believes in rotation in office, and mei
in East Carroll the offices rotate pretty ie
regularly about every two terms.
The "'Copy Hook," a paper pub- Epe
lished in the interest of newspapers cs
cou!d'nt have said anything more
truthful than the following: "T'I'he R
publisher of a newspaper has one tion
thing to sell and one thing to rent. eve:
He has the newspaper to sell and the
space in his columns to rent. Can plan
uanyone inform us why he shourd be will,
expected to give away either the one brig
or the other LIe can if he so chooses, 4
and he does, as a matter of fact, furn- cath
ish a great deal of space rent free. C.r
But it does not follow that he ought our
to be expected to do so. It ought to TI
be recognized as a contribution, exact- fie
ly as would be the giving away of the
sugar or coffee by a grocer. But, M
strauge to say, it Is not looked upon groi
in that light at all, yet everybody fie
nows that the existence of a news- pol1t
2aper depends upon the rent of its Mi
pace and the sale of the paper, au a Nep4
nerchant's success depends on selling shou
is goods instead of giving them and I
sway." I
