The adage, ''A dog that will fetch a bone will carry one, " holds good with the human canine. Unsought; advice is never appreciated.

A great many girls never get over 1(1 even though they live to bo 40. God made woman out of a man's rib, but it's strange how much more squeezing the rib can stand after being made into a woman. Pretty girls will kiss any old ugly woman every time they meet, and just let a nice young gallant ask for a s nack and she is ready to turn up her nose at once. Ten women in a crowd will all talk atoned; then pray tell me who does the listening. Some women will faint at sight of a helpless little mouse and tight a 180-lb. man to a finish. . Hens and women, men and mules— All are governed by regular rules.

The balmy summer weather makes me feel somewhat dull, Unit, I expect 1 am dreaming of the past as this month has appeared in my memory as a long sad dream. Our hoys are harvesting their crops rapidly, they are carrying cotton to market every now and then, boys you had better save your money or you will not have any dough to spend Christinas. Bro. Miller delivered an excellent special sermon to the young men and new members of Central church Sun day night. I think such an instructive and impressive s»rmon will do us all good provided we are willing to heed, that is, make our life bright and the only way to do this, to express my idea in a brief way, is to do right. Mrs. W. M. Daniels, nee Miss Carrie Ellison, came up from Gulfport Sun day to witness the burial of her mother. Since last communication of this vicinity appeared in the columns of The Times there has been quite a heavy loss befallen us, caused by the death of Aunt Ruth, Mrs. Henry Elli son, who died at the home of her sister, Mrs. George Yarborough, Saturday, Sept. 15th, 1900, at 2 -.JO in afternoon An"invalid husband and five children survive her. Two danthters and three . sons. The eldest dunght< r is married and the other sweet little girl is too young fqr such a responsibility to tie cast upon her as housekeeping, so they will not keep house any more. The little ones will be separated from each other, i.ittle Edna was ever ready to wait on her troubled mother and invalid father, she was so sweet and faithful to her duties. May God bless her in this, her sad bereavement, and the dear little son, Andrew, who has striven so very hard this year for the support of the family. Sweet little Peter and Bruce are quite young to he left with out mother, tho' it is God's will and it is such a sweet consolation to us to know that "He doeth all things well" and she is at rest. Nobody knows of the woik it makes, To keep the home together. Nobody knows of the steps it takes, Nobody knows but mother. Nobody listens to childish woes. Which kisses only smother. Nobody 's pained by naughty blows, Nobody, only mother. Nobody knows of the sleepless care, Bestowed on baby brother. Nobody knows of the tender prayer, Nobody, only mother. Nobody knows the lessons taught, Of loving one another. Nobody knows of the patience sought, Nobody, only mother. Nobody knows of the anxious fears,' Lest darling may not weather, The storms of ilfo in after years, Nobody knows, but mother. Nobody kneels at the throne above, To thank the Heavenly Father, For that sweetest gift, a mother's love, Nobody can, hut mother. OLD WHACK. Little Rena. About 9 o'clock Tuesday night,, September 11, a death angel viisted the home of Mr. and Mrs. ,T. B. Hambrick and claimed for its own their baby child, Bena Lillian, who had been sick only a few short days. She was the pride of the home, the idol of the en tire familv. The little darling suffered intense pain, but without, a murmur. She budded on earth to bloom in heaven. Mother, father, sisters, brothers, think not of her -as gone, but as a beaconing light, or as a little prattling angel at the foot of Jesus, anxiously waiting with outstretched arms to wel come you home where sickness enters not and sorrow is unknown. We know her little schoolmates will miss her and especially her classmate, little Flossie, who said as soon as the sad news reached her, "Oh, Mama,I won't have little Bena to say my lesson .with me now. We greatly sympathize with the be reaved family, but our loss is her eternal gain. A child from one household is gone; A voice we love is stilled. A place is vacant in onr heart That never can he tilled. AUNTIE.
