TEXAS CHAUTAUQUA. AHKlVBaSABT 1887. Now lies tha bloom of the uminer, lu beauty on volley nd hill; IIoveu'i deep blue on the ocean, And the euu'i bright glow the rllI The flush of dew on the flowers, The sours of the birds on the nir, The sweet red flush on the ronos. And bright tinU on the woodlauds fair. Bwect as the song of the sirens, Nth the breast of the surging soas. In tboir coral oaves reoliuing, la the sigh of the wooing brooze. As soft as the angels' footsteps Whet thv , fMl on the clouds at down, As thov come to wreathe brinlit suubearas Kound the brow of the waking morn; Is the sound of waters flowing. O'er the depths where the lilies gloom In whose pearly cups of sweetuess, The little elfin foirios drooua. And now while nature is smiling, Once moro hore iu friendship we meet, Feeling glod mom'ries returning, As faces familiar we groot. Perhaps the changes are many, Since we met just one year ago; But the wnrm weloome extended, Is ever the same, I well know. Perhaps there are some since wo parted, Grown tired of earth and its blight, Have crossed the cold waves of the river, And entered the city of light. And some have woudered In pleasure, Plucked roses all sparkling with dew. Sipped from youth's chalice the nectar Of joys bright in tical hue. And some :n peace have been utraying Where lovo its swfet dews lias distilled, O'er henrts so happy and restful, With faith's pnre sunshine e er filled. Some have soared upward on fancy, To heights of Olympus so fair; From Elvsium fields beon culling The bright flowers blossomiug there, t To Apollo' harp been listening, While it swayed all nature at will; Through Latmos roving enchanted, Where Endyuiinn, shudbers still. And now as we come this morning Bringing hither all joy and goodeheer; Slay friendship weave its sweet fetters, O'er all who have mot with us here. OVr lnunts where the wild doer boundod Onlv a fnv short yours ago; O'er tiie vale where the chitfiftiu wandered. By the murmuring streamlet a now; How proudly oiir fair "Chautauqua" llmm its summit over the lea; " And tlie white town lies below it, Like a pearl ou an emerald sea. Ilnre ou the spot vre are building A Temple to Intellect, rare, Whose walls are Wit's flashing jewo's, And its columns Dreams bright aud fair. Its dome the bright beams af Fancy, Its flowers the sweet blooms of Lovo, Joy's mystic rainbow encircling, . And Peace smiling down from above. And here may we meet each sntnmcr, -'Till gathered beyond we shall see, The floldeu glories e'er gilding, The shores of blest Eternity. San Marcos. Lizzin S. Leavell. Shocking Tracredy Whiskey's Doings. Miss Anna Vogelsang, who was visiting on the Blanoo on S.iturduy, brought word of on occidental killing near there, and in a later interview with J. A. Dixon and W. H. Owens, we obtained the following par ticulars. Mr. Jones and Andrew Gilbert, who are brothers-in-low, and reside on Dr. Wood's place, had been to San Marcos, Sat urday, had visited some of our saloons ond as e the influence of intoxication. Returning home they stopped at a house on Mr. Owen's place, and undertook to lift off a hay rack from the wagon. For this pur pose Mr. Gilbert stood on the doubletrees ju front, and Mr. Jones in the rear of the wsaon. Neither as we learn was in a con dition to nt'snd properly to this service. In consequence Mr. Gilbert stumbled and foil at the heels of the horses, whioh bc cane frightened and kicked him, probably inflicting fatal injuries, and then ran off, throwing him to the ground. He died in a short time. Ha leaves a helpless family of a wife and three small children. Here is a fresh lesson of fact ond philos ophy for onr anti Prohibition friends.. We learn that ono at least of the unfortunate men had voted for prohibition for bis ow n protection,' on the ground that be oould not resist the temptation held out by the sa loons. Yet our anti voters all through the campaign were found arguing that the druukard only is to blame or should be punished, the poor, innocent saloon-keeper not being his brother's keeper in any sense of the term t . Also that women have nothing to do with this question and should keep still and out of sight in regard to it. What a fearful rebukfl to this devilish doc trine does this poor widow and ber helpless little ones afford 1 Iron Roofing, Parties in need of roofing will find it to their interest to call on me before pur chasing.

OBITUARY. nARVEY At her residence In Ediuburg Mo., July lltb, 1887, Mas. Ellbb Hab- vbt, aged Bil year, v mourns sua i unj The deoeased was a aUter of tha father of tha editor of tha Fbbb Pbess, Bhe belong d to a large and well-known family, the fouuder of whioh in America waa Rene' St. Jnlien, (tha- noma was aubsequeutly Anglicized a at preseut), who came from France nearly two huudred yeara ago, first settled in North Caroliuo, and after a few yeara ou the shona of Chesapeake bay. Subsequently the family settled near Winchester. Vo. Isnao Julian, u son of Rene', grandfather of the subjoct of this uotico, is mentioned lu Irviug'a lifo or Washington, as residing in that vioinlty in 1755. He eontinued to roside there until after Braddook'a dofeat, whoa, to avoid trouble with the Indians, he, with nearly all his rolatious, moved to Guilford comity, North Caroliuo. Hii son, Isaac Julian, the father of the subject of this notioe, bod twelve sons and daughters, all of whom, to- gothor with himself, at various times be tween 1808 aud 1815 mode their homes in Wayne county Indiana, exoopt his two old est sons who remained in their native State. On the 6th of Ootober,l8l3,the subject of this notice was married to Absalom Harvey. They continuod to resido until thoy had reared a large family in Honry county In diana, when they removed to Grundy ooun ty, Missouri, whore she speut the remain dor of her life. Her husband died In 1872, and of a family of seven children who were roared to manhood ond womauhood, three survive. Iu her youtn airs, norvey was beautiful iu porsou and traoea of beauty re mained to the last. It was, however, some thing more than mere personal beauty it was beauty of mind and character reflated in ber face. While ber amiability was con spicuous she was noted for her independence and individuality of charaoter. She enjoyed nearly uniformly good health ond retained her mental powers ond a wonderful memo ry to the lost. A friend writing from Ediuburg soys she died peacefully, as if passing into sleep, a fit closing for a floblo life. Her funeral was condu jted by Rov. Wm. McCammon, a venerable Baptist preacher of that vioinity, who had baptized her into his church in 1848. and of which she remained a member ......I Law .tnnlli fttii nnmmnnnilAnt AfTrla , uuill uci u-i,iu. v... . . ...T . . v.. "She was bunad at Trenton beside her hus - baud. Notwithstanding the extreme heat, (103 in the shade), a traitff carriages and buggies almost half a nijle long followed hor remaius to their last resticg place. She was everybody's grandmother and every body loved ber." Such is a faint momorial of "Annt Nellie Harvey," for so- she was known among her connections, with whom, especially tho younger members she was a great favorite, as the writor hereof can testify. Her husband was an enterprising and suc cessful farmer and stockman, ond soveral of their children were quite successful in life iu a material point of view. Of the twelve children of Aunt Nolly's puronta Isaac and Sarah Juliau two Hom aud two daughters died at a rather ear ly period. Of the eight remaining children, including a brother of tho subject of this notice, who lived to be !)4 years of ago, on othor oue, a daughter, died a few years 8,0 in Richmond at the ago of 93, aud one daugh ter yot renmius aged over ninoty years, the four averaging over 92 years. The remain ing four died at agos raugiug botween 85 and 89, the average age of the four be iug over eighty-seven years, and the average age of the eight over niuoty years. The fain ily in point of longevity is raroly equaled. Aunt Nelly Harvey lived almost through the entire lifetime of the Constitution, she was nearly as old as it was, and saw the popu. lation of the Uuited States increase- from about four millions to sixty millions. Thus one by one ore being broken the links which bound us to tho cherished and hap py past. MEAD At Brooklyn, Iowa, on tho 1st of July, 1887, of consumption, AIus. Oka Mead, nee Hollinobwobth). Tho deceased came to this vicinity in her young girlhood in the fall of 1874, ond re mained about a year. She will be remem bered by not a few of our readers, and hence an obituary uotico in the Fbee Pbess seems appropriate. Her father, Milton Hollings worth, a veteran teacher of Eastern Indiana aud also a vigorous aud graphic writer for the Ioial press, was o f rioud of ours. Dy ing in somewhat reduced circumstances, Ono the eldest of a family of several brothers aud sisters, thus started out to earn her liveli hood by teaching. She bad received a good education, including musio. Butovon earlier than the time we have named she had become smitten with a passion for lit erary fame, and it remaiubd her ruliug pas sion through life, and iu spite of the most trying hindrances, chiof among which was an inherited tendency towards the disease which at lust proved fatal. A number of her poems appeared in our columns and in more widely circulated journals, and war ranted ber confidence in hor own gifts. In proof we copy on our first age, "The Orgau of St Mary's, "on of her best poems. From another of her effusions which ap peared in our columns iu 1874, we quote tho following touching atanza, evidently re ferring to the death of her father, to whom she was greatly attached, and to the rough, untried path of life that lay before her: "Why shall I never hear again The wild bird'a song au ghvi and free t Alas! 'tis because I ut in vain l or the voice which waa eweetest of all to met And stumbling up life's rugged hill With wrtiry heart. I go aiune. And woep for tbe feet that now ar still.

Siuoe Good, though only thought has Ufa and breath God's life con always be redeemed from death, And evil, in ita nature is decay, And any hour can blot it all away ; The hopes tut lost iu some fur distAuca seem May be the truer life, and this the dream." We can roadily conceive of a soul ao as. piring flndiug consolation ,amid tha ills of life in thia beautiful philosophy, and are ready earnestly to hope that alio may have found it true. Last year, while, teaching in Iowa, aha made the aoqna intance of Mr. P. D. Mead, and they were married. Life took on m frosh mtorost to her iu the companionship of husbond and child, but tha fell malady which had so long followed her, tightened ita grasp and she died aa above stated, her baby having preooded her some weeks to thfl'tomb. We close this poor tribute to a oongenial friend with the following appropriate lines fr'ouxone of hor poems which appeared In the Free Press in 1874, entitled "The Stranger's Grave:" 'Oh, the golden-rod as it springs from the sod For many on autumn-tide shall glow, And white and deep o'er hor peaoeful sloop, Shall fill full manv a wintor'a snow i But the nut-brown hair of the maiden fair, With the blight of age shall never grow gray, And the foot that now rest from thoir wan derings at last Shall struggle no more o'er life's shadowy way."
