judges of municipal ejecitions for
the town of Monteray for the tarin

, the monti , the people should evince
that interest in the town's affairs
that would impel thom to get up a
shite of suitable mon for trustee?
and see that they aro elected. The
town seems tobe dissatisfied with
the present incumbents, and they
in turn are equally tired of their
positions: however, in justice to the
present bod hi wo must say that de?
spite past irregularities and tbe
fact that more might have been
done, our towri has beeri greatly
benefited under their management.
People should not expect too much;
they cannot expect a small town,
governed by officers drawing no
salary whatever, (except thc small
pittance allowed the sargeant) to
inaugurate and maintain laws and
regulations as is done in cities un?
der the care of officer's, who receive
generous Salaries for services ren?

and night for a mere trifle, Only a
limited amount can be" raised each
year for improvements, and if no
further benefits accrue from its ex?
penditure than that of having good
walks we should not kick so stren?
uously. More walks are needed
and cati be built this year without
going in debt as what is now down
is paid for. A spirit of co-operation
rather than one of discontent
and fault-finding on the part of the

lie Fi;, beloved wife of John W.
Bird; born in Rockingham county,
April 25th, 1810; married Jan. 2d,
1808. After twenty-five years of
active and useful life irt an earthly
heme adorned according to her
taste and kept with constant care,
she was called to that moro glori?
ous home prepared in her Father's
Mrs. Bird made profession of her
faith in Christ and united with the
Presbyterian church in Lewisburg,
Va., in 1868, from which she re?
moved by letter of dismission to
join with others, in 1878, in the or?
ganization of Beulah church, Mill
Grap, of which her husband after?
wards became a ruling elder. Her
attachment to the church of her
choice was strong. To it she ching
with rare devotion till the last mo?
ment of life. She will be greatly
missed in the church as well as by a
largo circle of relatives and friends
in the community. Objects of her
loving attention and regard, they
cheerfully ministered around her
dying bed and will ever tenderly
cherish her memory. A sufferer
for many years, as well as during
the protracted weeks of trial just
preceding her death, she is now at
rest in that happy land, no one of
whose inhabitants shall ever say
kT am sick,1' and where sorrow and
separation shall never come. Qui?
etly and peacefully as the summer
evening's sun sets behind the hori?

lifo to rise the moment after amid
the splendors of an eternal day. 0!
weep not for her. Write "Blessed
