MRS. FRANCES AMBROSE DEAD.
The,
End Came Qultely and Peacefully
But ' Unexpectedly.
The death of Mrs. Frances Ambrose,
which occurred yesterday afternoon at
3 o'clock at her son's residence, No. 818
East Main street, came in the nature of
a shock to her friends and relatives.
Mrs. Ambrose had been quite ill for some
timewith the grip, but in the last few
days-Hn fact up to within a few
minutes of her death was thqught to be
much' better, but the disease had robbed
her .'ol that , vitality which at her
advanced age could not be regained, and
as ealmly. peaceful I v. fearlessly as the
lffAshe had lived, she died. 8he was
conscious until the very last mojnent,
recognizing those about her with a
smile, and her death as described by
those who witnessed it, was a mott
beautiful exemplicatlon of the Christian
faith.'
Deceased was a noble Christian lady,
whose long life had been spent in minis
tering to the comfort and wants of
others. She was a member of the Bap
tist church and had been associated
with that denomination for C5 years
She had resided in Dennison for about
four years,. . living with her son, J. G.
Ambrose, who is , manager of the Postal
felegraph company, here and'wfio had
but recently ' built . and fitted np' jiea't
home on East Main street for their
occupancy.
She had a large circle 6f,
rrionds and, acquaintances in the city
who will deeply regret her death,
net remains . will , embal med and
.Jon a tlih.-:3.fri!)on tor ..tonight, to
spencer, Unio, the old nome or deceased,
and there interred in the family burial
ground. J. G. Ambrose of this city, and
W. H, Ambrose of McAlester, sons of the
deceased, will accompany the remains
to Spencer, where they will be met by
other members of the family who have
been notified by wire of the sad
occurrence.
Mrs. Frances Ambrose, at the time of
her death, was 73 years of age. She was
born in Spencer, Ohio, where she resided
for over 60 years. At the age of 18 she
was married to Levi G. Ambrose. Seven
children blessed the union, five of whom
are still living one a daughter resides
in Salt Lake City, and four sons, in
McAlester, I. T; City of Mexico, Con
fluence, W. va; and Uennisou, respec
tively. She had been a widow twenty
five years. She moved from Spencer,
Ohio to Denison about four years aga
and since that time has lived with her
son, J. G. Ambrose. About three weeks
ago she had a severe attack of the grip,
from the effects of which she never
recovered Dennison (Texas) Herald, Feb,
9, 1899.
Spencer, 0., Feb. 13 Not since the
death of Levi G. Ambrose, nearly twenty
five years ago, has Spencer received such
a shock as that caused by the death of
Mrs. Frances Ambrose. Like that of her
husband her life was a beautiful
example of a just, good and noble person
Nearly their entire life was spent in our
midst to know them was to love and
respect them. Their prominence in
social and charitable work placed them
in the front rank. Mr. Ambrose as a
leader In the Masonic faternity and Mrs.
Ambrose a leader in church affairs num
bered their friends without limit. Their
children, consisting of one daughter and
four sons, are well and favorably
known and command the respect of all
good citizens, and have the sincere
sympathy of the entire community in
their end loss. J. G. Ambrose arrived
here with the remains today nearly
twenty-four hours behind the schedule
time on account of the severe storms
encountered on the long Journey from
Denison, Texas. The procession moved
from the Wheeling train to the church
where services were held, presided over
by Revs. A. G. Wall, pastor of the Bap
tist church of M'elllngton, and J. H.
Blackburn, of the Methodist church of
this place. The remains were then laid
away to rest beside that of her husband
and two children. Friends from far and
near faced the cold with the thermom
eter 18 to 20 degrees below zero to pay
their last respects to one they loved
dearly.

OF THE GEORGE WASHINGTON ME

bequest of $25,000 for a University l

for the Investment of all dividends ac

for the purpose designated. Unfortu
nately, through negligence, the bequest
has lapsed, and the ground is yet bare of
the improvements Intended to be placed
upon It Since the time of General
Washington's death in 1799, one hun
dred years ago, the question of estab
lishing, by the government, a national
university has been agitated by states
men and educators, but with no definite
success. Adams, Jefferson, Jackson,
Madison, Monroe, Grant and Hayes,
among our presidents, were ardent
friends of the university plan. Three
times the National Educational associa
tion has endorsed Washington's idea.
Scientists, jurists, and philanthropists,
men distinguished for learning and
statesmanship and a devoted love of
country, have urged the same. The Pan-
Kcpublic congress took action by ap
pointing a committee of one' hundred
eminent men, from which seventeen
were chosen, who prepared and intro
duced a bill now pending in congress,
This provides for the more immediate

other institutions will be established as
shall be considered advantageous td pub
lic interest.
The goverment now sustains at Wash
lncton under its fostering care, at an
expenditure of nearly eight million dol
lars, twenty-four departments of science
and every facility for research, open to
the use of students; but these are imper
fectly utilized for lack of aceutral admin
istration which would bind together, in
a well rounded whole, such opportuni
ties, making a splended foundation fur
the addition of endowed chairs in other
departments of a true university. In
its post graduate character such an in-
stution must rise above and complete
the work of all colleges and schools of
learning, thus affording opportunities
for the research which leads thousands
of students to the iustutions of the old
world. A chair of music and literature
have been endowed. Four other chairs
are under discussion. It is believed that
the establishment of the university will
call forth other endowments from those
who will recognize no more lofty way
ef perpetuating a name than to have it
associated with the University of the
United States.
this will insure, from the first, an
equipment unequalled by the best Eu
ropean universities, and make it possible
for America to rank with the highest in
her post-graduate, as she does in her
under-graduate educational advantages,
The George Washington Memorial
association originated with, and enlist
ed the most prominent women of the
country. These have banded together
and perfected organization, for the pur
pose of carrying out the desire of the
first president of this nation.
In the absence of funds which Wash
ington provided, it is proposed to gath'
er together $250,000 in free will offer
ings from the women and children of
the land. The building to be erected
with this fund will be known as "The
George Washington Memorial." Under
national officers and state committees,
each congressional district is organized
in thirty-five states. The corner stone
of this particular edifice Is to be laid
July 9, 1899, the centennial of his be

DO RICHES MAKE HAPPINESS, OR
DOES HEALTH MAKE
WEALTH t
The richest man cannot always be
said to be the most successful, for true
success is not possible without happi
ness. Many a wealthy man would give
all he now possesses to have the health
and happiness of a young athlete.
Health is not hard to get and keep if
good judgment is used in caring for and
supplying the needs of the system.
Nature often needs assistance; you
sometimes abuse nature by overtaxing
your nerves, your brain, or your body,
and you haven't time to relax, and
take the rest that you need. You must
have outside help. Pabst Malt Extract,
The "Best" Tonic, will supply the ex
tra luei, iooa, ana strengtn; it is aoso
lutely pure an unequalled assistant to
nature in giving health, vitality and
strength. It will make you eat and
sleep well, and cause you to feel like
yourself again, or perhaps, better than
you ever felt in your life. The "Best"

100 points of

that honor. Your nearest druggists car

A Competitive Temperance Examination.
The competitive temperance examina
tions on the effects sf alcoholic beverages
and narcotics upon the human system,
will be held Thursday, March 9.
The questions will be based upon .
principles taught In any standard phy
siology. While the booklet, "Temperance
Teaching for Boys and Girls" Is helpful '
it Is not a necessity in the' preparation
for the examination. Without doubt
such examinations are the means of fix
ing permanently in the minds of the
pupils what they have been taught, thus
securing larger practical results.
Every teacher in the county should
seek to benefit the school by this. Send
name, nnmber of district, township and
post office address at once to Mrs. M.
B. Shurtllff, Oberlin, 0. Also send the
name of person in the district (with P.
0. address) who is to conduct the exam
ination, and to whom the questions will
be sent, sealed, to be opened in the
school hours at the hour of the examin
ation. Teachers who have not used the
booklet, or who have not had time to
devote to this subject as they wished
should not on this account fail to have
the examination. Nor should any hesi
tate because their schools may not rank
highest. Results will be announced by
private marks known only to the individ
ual teachers.
The silver cup will be awarded to the
township which as a whole has the high
est average. Give the pupils in the var
ious townships the privilege of showing
their efficiency and standing as compar
ed with other townships.

Dan (en of the Grip,
The greatest danger from La Grippe is
of its resulting in pneumonia. If
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy be taksn,
all danger will be avoided. Among the
tens of thousands who have used this
remedy for la grippe we have yet to
learn of a single case having resulted
in pneumonia which shows conclusively
that this remedy is a certain preventive
of that dangerous disease. It will cure
la grippe in less time than any other
treatment. It is pleasant and safe to
take. For sale by W. F. Near & Co,
