The Herald would like to publish
just an even dozen opinions about the
best method of improving our resi
dence streets from people who have
given the mattersome thought Some
body in Palestine has the solution of
this problem thought out or has a
suggestion that will help to solve It

done at a nominal cost to the city
and at the same time provide good
streets If you write us make your
suggestions brief and to the point for
it goes without saying that the
streets cannot be built of hot air

sponded to the invitation Austin
Now brethren since your observe
that otherpeople have their eyes on

and lets settle this question of bet
ter town streets There are practical
and economical ways to build these
streets ways that the city can afford
and some one here has the secret of
the ways and means We need the
streets We have been contending all
along that gravel and sand on the clay

plan to suggest lets have it

Death visited our community last
Tuesday and took the beloved wife
of Mr A J Wylie She had been
sick for several days but no one con
sidered that theie was any danger A
very serious case of pneumonia set
in and did its dreaded work in a short
time Mrs Wylie was a woman of
such noble traits of character that
none could help but admire her
noble actions in all the trials of life
She met them all in a philosophical
way Mis Wylie was born near New
Yoik in llpndeison county Texas
January 21 1SC3 She was the daugh
ter of Chailes Hopper a citizen of
oonsideiable note in his day The
writer knew him as a soldier con
tending for the cause that was lost
For about one year be and the writer
weie associated as messmates and I
consider him as being one of the very
few pure men that I have known in a
long time Mrs Wylie was married
to Mr Wylie December 10 1S89 She
leaves her husband and five children
to iiiomii her untimely end She had
two childien by a foimer marriage
Mrs Lela Eliod and Mrs Alice Mil
ner both living at Poyner and of her
tlnee Wjlie children one the eldest
Mamie was mariied a short time ago
to Mr W It Join dan of this commu
nity Pearl an unmarried daughter
and a son Groyer areat home with
their father If her children can
only emulate her pure life tliey will
do well On Wednesday late in the
afternoon when her body was re
turned to mother earth in that beau
tiful spot that the good judgment of
the people of Poyner selected ior the
silent abode of the dead of his and
the surrounding country for tho com
ing years hundreds of sorrowing rela
tives and friends were present to
show how sadly they felt Mrs Wy
lie joined the Methodist church in
her early life and was identified with
it to the end The Rev Richie of La
Rue officiated at the burial All the
sympathy that the human heart is ca
llable of is extended by the writer to
the bereaed husband and children of
the departed commending them to
the care of Him who doeth all things
well looking foiward to the day when
the trumpet shall sound and all the
dead of earth and sea shall come
During the electric storm that pre
vailed over this country on last Wed
nesday night tho telephone system at
Fiankston was damaged to a consid
erable extent but I think that they
are in ninniiig order again
The general health of the commu
nity is good there was a little biush
or Iagrippe but that has about disap
peared The weather has been entire
ly too pretty for any one to be sick
If a man approaches you these days
and gives you an unusually hearty
handshake and just holds on refus
ing to let go and is very solicitous
about your wife and children do not
bo deceived he does not give a hur
rah on a hillside about your family
or you either as to that matter he
is just a candidate thats all The
woods arc full of them
I should like very much to see
something fioin the old set of cones
pondents who weie no much in evi
dence in the eaily days of the Herald
I cannot think they nip all dead
