L0GAL2 BREVITIES.
Mrs. Mary Durisoe.
Departed this Jife on Thursday
morning, February ?1st, after a short
illness, Mary Durisoe, wife of John
R. Durisoe. With our fi ail human
judgment, we would have deemed it
probable that many in our midst
would hare been called to pass through
the valley of the shadow of death be
fore Mrs. Durisoe, and that she would
have beeu left to minister to the heart
and soul needs of her husband and five
little children, who are left to the sor
rows and heartaches of this earthly
pilgrimage without the comforting
sympathies of their tender aud devoted
mother. She possessed indeed, "even
the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great
price." And was a devout Christian,
a member of the Baptist church of this
place. But it seemed that God in his
merciful providence had prepared her
children for this special dispensation,
in giving them remarkably strong
characters and matured intellects, en
abling them to understand that though
he has lead them mid scenes of deep
est gloom, it is still his hand that
guides them. Their many kind friends
will be a great comfort and consola
tion to them. May they also find a
balm for their wounded hearts, in the
beautiful Christian character of their
precious mother, who "though dead,
yet liveth," for after all, will they not
meet her again when they have cross
ed the river of life, and have entered
the pearly gates, where they shall
hunger no more, neither thrist any
more, neither shall the sun light on
them', nor any heat? For the Lamb
which is in the midst of them shall
feed them, and shall load them unto
living fountains of waters, and God
shall wipe all tears from their eyes."
"Oh think of the home over there
By the side of the river of light
Where the saints all immortal and fair
.irerobed in their garments of white.
Oh think ot the friends over there
Who before us the journey have trod,
Of the songs that they breathe on the
air
in their home in the Palace ol' God.
My Savior is now over the?-e,
There ray kindred and friends are at
rest
Then away from my sorrow and care
Let me fly to the home ol' the blest."
Let us not uuduly grieve for those
"asleep in Jesus." "For what is YOUR
life? It is even a vapour, that ap
peareth a little time and then vanish
eth away."
"When the weary ones w?j love,
Enter on that rest above
When the words of love and cheer
Fa!l no longer on our ear,
Hush! bft every murmur dumb,
It is Only, TILL HE COME.
Clouds and darkness?round us press,
. Would we have one sorrow less?
All the sharpness of the cross,
All that tells the world is loss,
Death and darkness and the tomb,
Pain us only, TILL KB COME."

ted a life-size portrait of Mrs. J. M,

the beautiful face you are startled
with the wonderful resemblance. The
dreamy eyes, the look to the laud that
is far away, .that blessed land where
she now is. The picture cost and
is a magnificent work of art.-Hamp

A Long Word.
In 1SGG Mr. Thad C. Strom of the
Duntonsville section went to an ob.'
field college presided over by Prof. J.
Rus Bodie. Thad says that while in
this old field college the professor gave
the Seniors the following long wohl
tospeil and define: "Chro-nonthon
thoii-gus-sylo-inandy-brandy-bustiror
nio." He says the professor told him
that this was the longest word in the
United States and meant, "1 came 1
saw I conquered," and of course it is
the word Cfesar was trying to think of
when he sent that mcmoraule message,
VENi, VIDI, VI CI, to the Roman Senate"
Thad also says tnat he would have grad
uated hut that he quitted college, on ac
count of being invited to a wedding)
two days before commencement arid
did not therefore gitadliate, lint did
qui tua te with hi-h honors. Prof
Bodie was, lie tells us, an excellent
teacher especially of large and ad
vanced boys, could read Latin as if
he had roamed with old Romulus and
Greek, as though he had sopped with
old Sophocles. Prof. Bodie is now
Principal of the Red Hill Academy in
this county, but has never yet found a
bulger word than "chrononthonthonsy
logusmaiidy brandy bust!for/j io."
Marries 'em in Poetry.
Friend Abe Gilchrist, a new Trial
Justice of the Rehoboth section, mar
ried his first couple a few days since
in poetry. He was sitting a-straddlo
of the pasture fence when the demand
was made for his services. The couple,
colored folks, stood in the big road.
Abe began as follows :
"I'm a settm' on the feuce,
But have you got the fifty cents?"
An affirmative answer having been
given and the fifty cents paid he pro
ceeded :
'I pronounce you man and wife,
Stick together all your life
And if heavy be your load
Always keep "de middle er de road"
Of those unborn let there be no dearth
Increase, multiply, and replenish the
earth !"
lt is needless to say that we are in
debted to Judge Luther G. Bell for a
transcipt of the ceremony given aoove.

How to Get $100 and Perhaps
Make a Fortune.
We secure patents and to induce
people to keep track of their bright
ideas we offer a prize of one hun
dred dollars to be paid on the first
of every month to the person who
submits tous the most meritorious
inveuti m during the preceding
month. We will also advertise
the invention free of charge in the
"National Recorder," a weekly
newspaper, published in Washing
ton, D. C., which has an extensive
circulation throughout the United
Stales and is devoted to the inter
ests of inventors.
NOT SO HARD AS IT SEEMS.
The idea of beiug able to invent
something strikes most people as
being very difficult; this delusion
the Company wishes to dispel, ll
is the simple things and small in
veulions that make the greatest
amount of money, and the complex
ones are seldom profitable. Al
most everybody, at some time or
another, conceives an idea,which,
if patented, would probably be
worth to him a fortune. Unfortu
nately such idea3 are usually dis
missed without thought. The sim
ple inventions like the car window
which could be easily slid up and
down without breaking the pas
senger's back, the sauce pan, the
collar button, the nut lock, the
bottle stopper, the snow shovel,
are things that almost everyone
sees some way of improving upon,
and it is these kind of inventions
that bring the greatest returns to
the author.
The prize we offer will be paid
at the end of each month, whether
the application has been acted
upon by the Pat int Office or not.
Every competitor must apply for
a patent on his invention through
us, and whether he secures th?
prize or not, the inventor will have
a valuable present.

In speaking to young men, once said,
"It Is the learning acquired at
midnight that will make your futuro
bright and dazzling as midday."
And In this terse epigram the great
Frenchman stated a truth that applies
equally to struggling, ambitious
young men the world over.
Insomuch as you have yet your
place to make In the world, and will
avail yourself of opportunities to
Increase your knowledge and improve
?our mind, so will you make your
fe successful and happy.
A man's brain is a garden given
him to cultivate, and whose products
will b3 his support.
Plant That Garden
with seed of knowledge and from tho
vines will grow the blossoms of
financial gain and honorable
preferment.
Never before In tba history of the
world have youne; men hau an
opportunity to flt themsdves for the
battle of life as it ?3 now given them.
In this, as In everything else,
America!-, push and public spirit lead
the world.
