Many years ago two soldiers of fortune left Erin's shore to travel far and to break a lance in behalf of whatever good cause might beckon. Soldiers leave behind them their worldly goods and follow unknown paths when they fyre forth- to right the wrongs of this world, and after the bloody Crimean war which first enlisted their services', they found themselves in the struggle between the North find the South, and, strangely enough, on opposing sides, brother against brother, with all the sentiment native to their race bound up in the cause each served. There comes a time when wounds Vfall men for which there is no cure, wounds not of the strife, and one moonlit evening our Irish soldier fell a victim to h small god's darts. Cradled in the home f her grand parents the frail child of Captain Prendergast and Lucy Franklin grew to girlhood and then to young woman hood, adored by all who attended hei " Highly organized with deep and ready sympathy for the woes of others, absorbed in the books she found in such abundance in this nome of cultured and refined kins tnen, what wonder that she develop ed a character of admirable strength land beautiful symmetry. She was married to P. II. Lowry, the brilliant son of ex-governor Lowry, of Mississippi, nnd wa loved and treasured by the family of that worthy executive who fully appre ciated her rare charms. The latter years of her life were spent at her old home in Columbus, and while her frail health brought untold sufferings, she was rlivnv? ready to give comfort and counsel to those who appealed. No attention however trifling, failed to be . received with sincere Appreciation. Like the faint light of an ala baster lamp her spirit shed its bright ness just so far as its strength might reach. With no farewells, n6 leaning up on the strength of another, no evok ing that sympathy so abundant ready in the hearts of her friends, she left her earthly mansion in the grey jf the early dawn. Who among us would have so courageously set sail upon that uncharted sea? A pall of flowers upon a mound of clay for our earthly vision, but God be praised, a radiance, n shin ing whiteness before theThrone and in our memory an imperiable sweet DIDN'I .THINK SHE'D EVER BE WELL AGAIN "Tanlac lias Made Me Well and Strong," Says Mrs. Miles Suffered 20 Years.

The survival of the original name of Cuba Is n remnrktiMe instance of per sistence, as the Island has been bap tized and n luiptized nmiij a time since Its European discovery. Columbus first culled it Juana, in honor of Prince John, the son of Ferdinaud and Isabella. After Ferdinand's death it was called, In his memory, Ferdlnanda. Subsequently this name was changed to Santiago, after St. James, the pa tron .saint of Spain. Still later It was named Ave Maria, In honor of the Vir gin Mary. But none of these names held, and the Indian name Is still preserved. First Soldiers' Home.

"I am now twenty-nine pounds heavier than I was when I began us ing Tanlac and I feel like a new wo man in every way," said Mrs, Annie Miles, residing at 1445 Evergreen Avenue, Jacksonville, Fla., a short time ago.

"I just had to force my self to eat enough to keep alive, and what little I did eat made me suffer hours of agony, from gas that would rise on my stomach. I had awful headaches and dizzy spells con stantly and was so nervous I could hardly sleep. I fell off in weight and got so weak and no-acount that I felt I could never be well again. "One of my neighbors told me what Tanlac had done for her, and I started taking it. I begun to pick up right away. I kept on gaining until I had increased in weight twenty-nine pounds and my strength has come back to me in full force. I can eat anything I want and every thing tastes good.
