the company. This rtsult was brought
about through the efforts of a few of the
msre mederate men who took hold of the
miUer of their own motion, and through
a friendly conference with Suf.t. Lee,
brought about a resumption of the work.
Tie company made the men some cn

r'.de out of tbe mine at toe ecd of a day's
work, a specified hour for blasting and a
change from a tonnage basis to a stated
sum per month per man for sharpening.
This strike commenced Jan. 4, and
hence has lasted just about one month.
When thej went out there were 185
miners and 2C0 laborers, drivers, etc., the
monthly pay roll amounting to ? 18,000,
which may be said to be tbe amount the
men have lost in the interval of suspen

have been a particular bent fit to anyone,

Andalusia. Feb. 3. At this place
Monday morning. Feb. 1, occurred the
death of Mrs. Ann Bethuram of old aee,
probably superinduced by an attack of
la grippe. I)pceaed was born in South
Wales, Nov. 22, 1814. where she grew to
womanhood, and wts married to John
Jones, with whom she came to this coun
try in 1S41. settling at Sugr Grove
Mercer county, Ii I. to them were born
nine children, John, Lon. Bcjimin.
Isaac. James acd Mrs. Burris. a!l of Kcs
sis, and Mrs Clifford and Mrs. Jones, of
Mercer county, both of whom were with
ber durinc her last hou s. Many of
tbefe children were q site young when
Mr. Jones died, leaving them as it were
depetdant upon their mo'hr forsuppo't,
but with her indorcitablo will and
manrgement ste not only raised and ed
ucated the childien, but paid for
the farm, and had saved for each oce a
snug little turn when he attained his ma
jority. She also raised George, Charles
and Maggie Burgoyne, whose father and
mother died when they worequite young
She was then in 1871 married to James
Bethuram. and has up to the time of ber
nealh resided in this place, and was
known by nearly every man, woman and
child and few there are to whom she has
rot in some way shown an act of kind
ness. She was a member of the Baptist
church and a consistent worker in every
sense of the word, a kind friend and the
best neighbor family ever knew. She was
a ministering angel to many in sickness
end distnsi. I can not illustrate
better tbe esteem in which she
was held then by stating that
Monday evening I called at the house and
noticed among others who called, many
school children whe came to take a last
look at "grandma'' as she was familiarly
known by all. The funeral services were
conducted at tbe house Tuesday morning
by Rev. F. vy. Brusso, who made a very
a I ile talk and as he spoke of her exem
plary life and eulogized her many virtues
all present felt tht the ending of such a
life is crowned with a realization of a
glorious future. The interment was
made at Sugar Grove cemetery. James

The concert ef the New York Sym

splendid success. All members of the
club are artists of a high order, and sus

the fact that be was born andeducattd
