Cleveland, who has been operating the bottling works at this place for a year or more, has moved his plant to Amory. We regret to see this industry leave Starkville and also regret to lose Mr. Cleveland as a citizen. The fire alarm was turned on Sunday about uoouaud the depart ment responded promptly. It was the home of Dr. H. K. Raymond on Main Street. The roof had caught from a defective flue. The The lire was extinguished without very much damage to the building. Mrs. J. R.

Tlit iuscripi iou on a in a New England cemetery penned by a husband after si? ty years of wedded life reads: “She always made home happy.” He might have said of her, she was beautiful and accomplished, an ornament to society and a joy to her friends: and yet not said she made home happy. He might have added that she was a devout Christian and not have been able to say, "She always made home happy.”. What a rare combination of vir tues and graces must this wife and mother have professed. How wise ly must she have ordered her house-, hold. Her husband did not seek happiness in publie places and away from his fireside because he found purer and sweeter enjoyment at home. Her children, when away, did not dread to return, for there was no place so dear to them as home. How thoughtful for the comfort of all about her must have * been this woman to earn the simple and expressive epitaph: “Bhe al ways made home happy.”—Ex change. The meeting of the Union on Monday at the residence of Mrs. F. E. Hearon was in the nature of a Bewing Bee, when the Comfort Bags for the sailors on Ihe Battle ship Mississippi were by deft fingers wrought into form. The bags were made of fancy cretonne and are to be filled with all needful articles for mending ap parel and for emergency of accident as -scisiors, thread, coat plaster, etc. The bags also contain large envelopes made of white oilcloth for clippings or temperance leaflets, These envelopes are bound with blue ribbon and are to be hung up with red ribbon attached to bag rings thus carrying out the nation al colors, red, white and blue. The same color scheme was adhered to in the needle book which is com posed of red white and bine flannel attached to the inside of the bog, the little bag being brought togeth er with the significant white ribbon bow, Eanh'bag is to contain a copy of the New Testament. The National Department of Sol diers and Sailors has never been formerly taken up in Mississippi until now when the port" at Gulf port makes it fitting that the Union should meet the opportunity of ministering to those “go down to the sea in ships.” The puplio has been so generous in contributing toward this patri otic work undertaken by the Union, that of making and furnishing the comfort bags, that a further inter est is presumed in this description of the bags. Before the hour for adjournment arrived Mrs. Heron refreshed the workers with a delicious glass of peach acid. Owing to the difflgptyy of elect-, ing a time for the spoil ing bee the date has, haem postpon ed until Friday, Feb, 18, Starkville furnishes the State Superintendents of Departments as follows; Medical Temperance— Mrs. Frank Dille., j Sunday Schools—Mrs. Anna Bell. Parlementary Usa^e —Miss M. L. Montgomery. The Sturkville Union is much interested in getting organizations at Ackerman, Strongs and every oilier town and community in the county but until that is effected; anyone in the county will be wel comed into this mission.
