The vacation days are at an and and this morning at 9 o'clock the teachers of the city schools called the children "to books." Fond mothers were busy all last week preparing the dresses and hats and trousers and coats for the boys and girls. The shoe stores were busy shoeing them and the dry goods stores furnished the new dresses, ribbons, aprons and things for the girls, and the clothing stores rigged out the boys with tx*w tog- : gery. And the book stores were scenes of considerable activity, too. During the last two or three days of the week the dealers were kept busy selling new books and excifanglng new ones for old ones. This morning bright and early the children begsn trooping to school from every direction of the city and long before the first bell tapped the school grounds were thronged with enthusiastic boys and girls, all glad that vacation was over arid that the time for study had again come.

DEATH'S GRIM HARVEST Miss Alice Simmons Answers (he Last Earthly Summons. Death is in the world and the fell destroyer is ever claiming human life. Today we are in the full posses sion of our faculties, our powers aDd our pleasures. Tomorrow we are as the mown grass that wither eth in the sunlight. Truly can no man sav that his life is his own. For it is written: "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away: Blessed bp the name of the Lord." Yesterday afternoon at f. o'clock Mies Alise Simmons, sitter of Mrs R. D. Hudson, and who made her hone with the family on Kaufman street, ansirerrd the final summons that each must in his own time answer for himself. Miss Simmons did not appear at breakfast yesterday morning, com plaining of a severe headache. About 11 o'clock she was seized with vio lent vomiting and asked to be as sisted down stairs where she could receivejattention without unnecessa ry trouble on the part of tier sisters. Reaching the downstairs bedroom her conversation revealed tne fact that she had lost consciousness. Physicians re hastily summoned who pronounced h»r trouble appo plexy. Kverything possible to ao was done and the patient made as easy a« possible. Within a short time she was resting quietly, hut the physicians could give no hope of ultimate recovery. In this state she lingered until <> o'clock when as one passing into a quiet slumber she passed into the >rreat unknown. Miss Simmons was born in Leake county, Miss. In Ι.Ηίί" she moved with lier father's family to Leon county, Texas, where the family resided one year and then moved to Mexia. The remainder of fier life ^as spent there until two years ago wheu she caaie to this city to make tier home with her sister, Mrs. R.D.N Hudson. She professed religion in early childhood and united with the Methodist church, in which faith she lived a consistent and earnest Christian life When fier health . permitte ) sh·· was an active church worker, belonging to several church societies and tiring liberally of her time and means to the furtherance ■ f the cause of her Redeemer, in j disposition she was modest and re tinng, loved and admired by all who ! knew her for 1.·τ patient, forbear ing, charitable spirit. Miss Simmons was a woman of exceptional business ability, and by her own efforts and careful business judgment had accumulated enough to insure a comfortable living. Her sudden death was a great shock to lier family and friends. Her brothers and sisters who were notified of her dangerous condition did not have time to reach here until after her death She leaves three sisters and three brothers: Mrs. R. I). Hudson and t Miss Emily Simmons of this city; Mrs. J A. Carson, of Piano; Col. John W. Simmons, of Mexia, and; H. K. and J R. Simmons, of Ker en*. All of these, except Col. John Simmons, of Mexia, reached the city at seven o'clock last night. The funeral services were con ducted at the residence tins after- 1 noou at 4 o'clock. Rev. J.

The pall bearers were from th< Knter prise and Light office, and out of respect to the deceased and Mr. and Mrs. Hudson, the office* were l closed from that hour. The inter ment was made in the City Cerne- I eterv. To the berea\ ed brothers and sis ters tfie Light extends sincerest sympathy. May the life of she who is gone be to them an inspiration and a beacon, leading them onward to that glory land where, reunited in spirit. partings, bitterness and death, can never come.
