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
' Col. Anderson Dead.

moros and Brownsville several
times in recent years, in the in
terest of a project to build a rail
road from Monterey to Matamoros.
He was lately interested in some
iyiportant mining ventures in Mex
ico. Col. Anderson was a gentle
man who made a very favorable
impression upon all who met him
here, and his death is much re
gretted. U. S. Consul P. Merrill Griffith
of Matamoros was interested with
Col. Anderson in some business
matters, and he left at once, on
receiving the news of his death,
for Laredo attend the funeral.

Happy old age
Many -women vrho have enjoyed good
health all their life begin to fade when they
reach the ago of forty-four. 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." And it is not strange that
the cessation of the menstrual habit after
thirty years operation should disturb the
svstem and tax the strongest constitution.
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. When the change of life is not
safely pissed, a woman quickly becomes an
invalid. Slumbering disease germs are
given increased activity and they appear in
aggravated form. If yon take Wine of
Cardui regularly when approaching the
change of life yea will be assured better
health than you have ever enjoyed before.
A happy old ago and restful calm will be
your reward. Mrs. Campbell was cured
aiier sunenng tnree years with "change
of life." Thedford's Black-Draught, the
companion medicine of "Wine of Cardui,
assimilates with, it perfectly, curing
digestive liver and kidney affections,
and throwing impurities and disease
perms out of the system. Both working
together make a well and happy woman.
