Tis with unutterable sorrow that we i chronicle the death of our young ! friend, Howard Neal, which sad event occurred Nov. 14. 1907 at about 10 r»o Howard was well liked by all who knew him, and while yet a young man not having reached his twenties —lie had made for himself a cost of warm friends, who deeply depl death. He was just in the prime of young manhood; just as the flowers of usefulness were bursting into blossom, just when in this great world of events of chance and misfortune, the rainbow of life which shadows existence is studded witi: in ends which foretell a bright future , just when with' eager hands upon the helm, we steer the ship of life out upon unknown and untried waters, while the eager winds ot health aim happiness are kissing every sail; to be called away from this into that we know- not of seems to us, did we look upon the still, white face, the motion less breast and the care free hands of our departed loved ones, human side, unjust. 7 by the cold unfeeling grave presence of grim Death, when the thetic dust,has hidden from ! the forms of those J ask of the changeful world of I as h the friends who clasp our hand * in sympathy, ask of science the tion, Memorial. a. in. his ure our every dry the di. a from the But as we stand in the I>a our view we cherished and events I ues "Where is itY" "Whit is it?'

To the relatives and friends of the der -y-d one I extend the hand of sympathy and love coming from a heart that had been over bur dened with grief and cast down in sorrow; and while I know the sympa thy that I, or anyone else can give, can never fill the aching void, I do know that there is One who has prom ised to never leave us comfortless and has promised to heal the wound and bind up the broken heart, to Him, the Great Physician. to to lar was ed last elle, I point you S.S. ^ Burglars broke into the house of Frank Blake, col., between 9 and 10 o'clock Thursday rooming, was at work in the field, five twenty-dollar gold pieces and three dollars and eighty-five cents in silver.

ITURBJDE. to h——1, you ■ low down dev - nut profane language, accord ing to Chief Justice Whitfield, of the Mississippi supreme court, Monday, in a decision rendered. The case was that of Rosa Stafford, a 12-year-old girl, convicted of using profane lan guage in the circuit court of Alcorn county. The testimony showed that Rosa had accidentally bumped into two other girls on the street, and up on their scolding her, she replied in the language quoted. In bis decision reversing the case, Judge Whitfield said that the language did not invoke the name of the Deity, could not lie properly classed as profanity in the strict sense of the term, and that there was nj force to require obedience to the request of the girls, other girl should desire to obey, case was, upon that account, reversed and remanded. unless the The I The liquor peojtle of Mobile have deluded some good women into going | to Montgomery to aid m their fight asrainst statutory prohibition. < if the j two fir-t lailtes that came, one was ad | vertised as a married daughter of Ad miral Hemmes, certainly a queer use to put Lis name to. and the other an officer of one of our schools.
