The house of Dr. D. W. Box, in the Military Springs neighborhood, just across the county line in Ala batna, was totally destroyed by fire last Monday afternoon. The flames started from a defective flue and burned so rapidly that nearly all the furniture and household effects were lost. We could not learn if Dr. Box was protected by insurance. His friends heartily 'sympathize with him in his misfortune. yihe Presbytery's Tribute With gre.'4 sa dues the Frrsb) -tery of Mississippi has learned of the death of Mrs. Annie C. Peyton, who was for many years one of the most efficient and valuable members of the church in which we are now holding our sessions. She died on the 11 of November, 1898, at her home in Columbus, surrounded by her children and many loved ones. She was a woman of rare gilts and many attainments. She had early training in the home, in the Sunday school and in the church. She was educated in the schools of her native state. Graduating at Whitworth College, she became a teacher in the same institution, where she laid the foundations of an intelligent and practical life. While in the morning of her young womanhood she became the wife of a distinguished Chaucellor, Eph- raim G. Teyton. Together they walked in the ways of righteousness and their hearts were united in working for the upbuilding of the Master's kingdom. Mrs. Peyto was a true and loving wife an careful, devoted mother. She honored every sphere in life in which she moved. Gifted as she was, she could have been eminent in literature or in public assemblies. But she loved her home. It was her sanctuary. She felt that God had called her to train her children and live for them. No promises of applause or other inducements could entice her to leave her God- given work. She loved her church She worked for it by day and dreamed of it by night. She longed for the improvement of all classes of people. Her heart went out in earnest longings for the education and elevation of the girls of her 11a tive state. She used her pen vigT orously and used her personal ef forts to have a school established by the state for this great work Her efforts were crowned with sue cess. She lived to see as many as 400 girls gathered from all parts of the state within the walls of the Industrial Institute and College of this state. After the lamented death of her husband she was call ed in the providence of God to be a teacher-injthe institution for whose estalishment she had labored and prayed so earnestly. To this work she gave her most assiduous arjd conscientious efforts. For seven years she put forth her finest ener gies for the intellectual develop ment of the girls in the college. Her heart was in the work. She lived for it. The girls loved her. Her influence over them was won derful. The most thoughtless girl could find in her a warm friend in whom she could safely confide No chaplain was ever more con stantly interested in the spiritual welfare of students, than was Mrs. Peyton in these girls. We are not able to form an esti mate of her great and good work. Eternity alone-can reveal the beau tiful results of her earnest labors. Of many a girl it hould be said "under this good woman's influ ence she was born into the king dom of Christ." There will be many stars in her crown. Her end was peace. Con science to the very last, surround ed by all of the children, her auiverine voice joined theirs in a beautiful hymn , ' 'Saved by Grace," and as the last echoes died away she fell asleep. The presbytery of Mississippi hereby records this ex pression of our gratitude to Al mighty God that he gave to the home, the church and the service of the state, such a true, loyal and devout woman. We thank God for her consecrat ed and eminently useful life. She realized in a beautiful way the ideal woman as set forth by the words of King Lemuel in the prophecy taught him by his mother: "Favor is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman that leareth the Lord, she shall be praised."
