Obituary. In memory of Jasper N. Jack son, born in Barber county, Ala., i February 9th, 1849, moved to Brandon, Mississippi, while yet i a small boy, where he lived, and was educated in the schools, un til after the war—was too young to go into the army. In 1*72 he moved to Jefferson, Texas, where he spent the rest of his life. At the age of 26 he married Miss Alice, the daughter of Judge B. W. Gray of Jefferson, who still survives him. He leaves also one daughter, Mrs. W. A. Richard son, who resides with her hus band and two sons at Mineral Wells, Texas, and a brother, J. O. Jackson, two sisters and other relatives at Jefferson. He died in Jefferson Nov. 10th, 1911. The funeral we held the day after his death, November 12th, at 10:30 a. m. attended by a large concourse of relatives and friends at Oak wood cemetery. The Rev. D. Griffin Gunn, I)- D. the Rector of Christ Church, ^Episcopal) Jef ferson read the services, assist ed by the Presbyterian choir, and also preached his funeral sermon He made little preten tions to religion until the last few months of his sickness, when ho told his life long friend and ad visor, Rev. Dr. Gunn, that he prayed constantly and he hoped that God would save him, it was all that he could do. Dr. Gunn gave him his own prayer book, and he said it was the most won derful book he ever read. When lie was too sick to read it he would have his wife to read it to him. He was a member of the Old ' School Presbyterian church, and died in that faith. We feel sure that He, "who never despised the s;ghing of a contrite heart, nor the. desire of such as are sorrow ful" heard his prayers. He was peculiar in his way, but those who knew him best, loved him most. "Grant him O Lord, eternal rest, and let perpetual Light, shine upon him." D. G. G.

Burnett Dallas, Texas TIMELY WARNING TO CALOMEL USERS Calomel is a Form of Mercury and If It Stays in the Human System Its Effect is Terrible. Ask Your Doctor. Any physician will tell you that mercury, if it remains in the mdy, will soften and rot the tones, a disease doctors call ne ■rosis of the bones. Calomel is i form of mercury, and to keep '.fear of danger it's a safe plan to Lake no calomel at all, especially us there is a bettor remeby. Both children and grown people will find a perfect sub stitute for calomel in Dodson's Liver Tone, a pleasant, vegetable tonic that induces the liver to act and which never has any bad after-affects. In fact Dodson's Liver Tone will do every thing that calomel does without any of the dangers of calomel.
