Death of Father Michel. "Written for The Herald. A telegram received last evening by the Rev. Father Superior ofthe Oblate Fathers conveyed the sad news of the death of Rev. Father G. Michel, who yesterday morning succumbed to a lingering and most painful malady, in the Santa Rosa hospital at San Antonio. JJunngttne many years or nis ministry in Brownsville, this holy servant of God rendered himself so well and universally loved that any praise or enumeration of his virtues and labors cannot but be an echo of the eulogies which all hearts are already pronouncing, on recalling the abnegation, zeal, tender-heartedness, and all the other heroic and gentle traits that charac terized his saintly soul. Father Michel was born in Metz, in 1846, of French parentage. His ecclesiastical and classical studies were pursued in Antiu, France. In '78 he came to Texas and be came chaplain of the Incarnate Word academy of this city. In '92 he was sent to Canada, in which country he passed five years, re turning at the conclusion of that period to Brownsville, where he remained until last year, when he was sent to Eagle Pass. For many years Father Michel was a great sufferer, more than once arriving at the point of death, and with courage did he combat his cruel ailment. From that is he uow mer cifully delivered, and, like "every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father or mother tor His name's sake, is he receiving a huudredfold and life everlasting." -84 ' Col.

They grow nervous and irritable and suffer with sick headaches. Their livers are torpid, their digestion is impaired and their bowels are irregular. They are experiencing- the "change of life."

This trying period has no terror for a woman who use3 "Wine of Cardui. It builds np her strength and prepares her for the ordeal.
