Death of Mrs. O'Malley.
Mrs. M. M. O'Mailey died
here last Thursday night at H:30
o'clock, after an illness of over a
month. She was a sufferer from
gastritis and had been gradually
sinking for some time. She was
in her sixty fifth year at the time
of her demise. She leaves one
sou aud three daughters, be
sides countless friends to mourn
her death. The funeral occurred
Friday afternoon from the resi
dence, Rev. A. J. Miller, pastor
of the First Baptist church of
which denomination she was a
devout member, conducting the
services. The interment follow
ed in Friendship cemetery, the
following acting as pall bearers:
Messrs. Carl Tesch, J. A. Goree,
A. Chapsky, D. R. McClary, A.
A. Wofford Ed Childers.
A dry kiln at the lumber plant
of Houston Bros., in the south
eastern section of the city caught

caused au alarm of tire to be
rung in. The firemen went to
the scene of the flames but the
fire was extinguished before it

Jackson. Columbus and Northern R. R.
The Jackson News, of receut
date, had a long article to the
i effect that the Jackson, Colum
: bus and Northern Railway was
I soon to be built; that the Illinois
Central Railway had become in
terested in the enterprise and
j that all arrangements for work
i to beiriu and to be carried
through had been consummated.
The article was based upon sub
stantial information, so it was
; stated, and a meeting of the offi
cers and directors of the pro
; posed road was called for
i Jackson on the 8rd It is learn
ed since that not enough of the
directors attended the meetinjr
to make a quorum and therefore
nothing was done.
The Jackson, Columbus and
Northern Railroad is the road
which Judge Cayce projected
some years ago aud after getting
the enterprise well before the
people he surrendered the presi
dency of the company to Mr.
Enochs, of Jackson, in the hope
that that gentleman could inter
est the Illinois Central in the
road. The matter has stood in
abeyance for the past few years
and nothing has been heard from
it until now. A road from Jack
son to this city would develop a
country rich in virgin resources
and would repay its projectors
handsomely. This section of
country has engaged the atten
tion of raiload builders for some
time and it would not be surpris
ing if some great system had be
come in it. Further develop
ments are awaited.
A pretty wedding was solemn

at the First Baptist church, when
Miss Annie Laurie Long aud Mr.
George Tumliu were joined iu the
bonds of holy matrimony. The
The church was beautifully dec
orated with palms and ever
greens, while magnolias, lillies
and roses were tastefully ar
ranged around the chancel. The
wedding march was played by
Mr. Teasdale. One of the feat
ures of the ceremony was the
singing of "Annie Laurie"' which
was beautifully rendered by
Miss Lucile Richardsou.
The wedding party consisted
of Messrs, John Martin, Dave
Sessums, Warren McClure and
Lowry Long as ushers; Earle
Burris and Miss Mabel Long,
John Johnston aud Miss Hattie
McClanahan as attendants. As
the groom entered with Mr. Har
ris of Memphis, his best man,
the bride appeared with her sis

A Deserved Tribute.
For the Columbus DISPATCH.
As a son of Mississippi, a na
tive of Monroe county, a resident
until manhood of Lowndes, a
graduate of the University, li
censed oy the Presbytery of
Tombeckbee in the old church at
Columbus, ordained and install
ed pastor of the Okolona church,
it is but natural that I should
love the old commonwealth. My
devotion to Mississippi is ex
plained by other considerations.
The State not only gave me my
birthplace, my education, my
first and truest friends and my
earliest opportunities of service
as a young minister, but Okolo
na gave me my bride who still
blesses my life and shares my
loyal pride in the State, and my
only child claims Chickasaw as
his native county. Three broth
ers served the Confederate
Cause in Mississippi companies
under the captaincies respec
tively of Baldwin, Sharp, Billups
aud Blewett. Under the colors
of a Mississippi regiment one of
those brothers received at Jones
boro, Ga., the wound which a
few days later at Macon, Ga.,
resulted in his death. Iu the
soil of the State repose the ashes
of my family and kindred and in
the thriving towu of Tupelo re
sides my only surviving brother.
Everything that pertaius to the
history, present conditions and
future development of the State
is of interest to me.
A visit of au adopted Missis
sippian and a Columbus pastor
to my home in Virginia has stir
red the fires of affection for my
peple and awakened memories
that are sacred. The Rev. Dun
bar H. Ogdfu represented his
Presbytery iu the General As
sembly at Lexington, Va. Since
his accession to the pastorate of
the Columbus church I have
watched with pleasure his suc
cesrful career. The fact that he
was acceptably tilling the pulpit
of that church and satisfying the
taste, intellect and spiritual de
sires of so cultured a people was
evidence to my mind that rare
gifts and attainments centered
in the young man. His presence
in Lexington became my oppor
tunity to see aud hear him in my
own pulpit, so L t xteiidod to him
an invitation to visit us and oc cupy
my pulpit on Sabbath. He
cousented to come and ou last
evening went on his way, leav
ing behind many to remember
while life lasts, his two edifying
sermons. Considered as to sub
ject matter good taste, logical
arrangement and felicitious ex
pression by voice, manner and
verbiage, those discourses were
of a high order and I venture the
assertion that in the entire
Southern Presbyterian church
there is no man of like age and
experience tnat is ins equal.
Not less fascinating than the pul
pit manner of Mr. Ogden is his
personality in the home and so
cial circle. His visit to Grace
Street church will ever be a
Through your columns, Mr.
Editor, I felt constrained to bear
this testimony to one of the bril
liant pastors of Columbus and to
drop a hint to his devoted people
that iu this time of vacant pul
pits, here and there, it is not al
together the safe thing to per
mit their gifted young "preacher
to be running at large.
