Postal cards giving a description of the escaped prisoner have been dispatched to adjoining towns, and a reward of $10 00 for his apprehension. The general merchandise store of J. Y. Bowles, across the street from the county jail, was burglarized Monday night. Entrance was obtained by bor ing a hole in the lower panel of the rear door large enough for the thief to thrust his arm and slip back the bolts. The thief had the right of way, and a light was on so that he could have ι full view and thus secure pick of stock, but so far as could be detected only one pair of shoes were taken. The shoes are a red pair of 6j low cuts. Look out for them.

He was again attacked by the dread disease in his left arm and at one time the physicians had but little hope that his arm could be saved. ] Regardless of his affliction, he has bravely fought against his misfortunes ι and while in poor health he has never failed to perform his duties. The last misfortune which has overtaken him but adds to the sympathy entertained by his friends for him. In common I with every one, we sincerely trust he I may speedily recover. ] Tupelo Athletic Club.

Mr. and Mrs. Pruitt Monaghan have the sympathy of the entire community in the loss of their three and one half year old son, James, which sad event occurred at their home last Saturday morning. The little fello-.v was kicked by a pony on Wednesday and though every thing possible was done to relieve him by both local physicians and a doctor called from Memphis, he passed away early Saturday morning. The loss is a severe one to the par ents, especially the mother who has had to give up her baby boy. The old er brother who is left will sadly miss his little playmate. The funeral services were conducted on Sunday morning from the family residence by Rev. W. W. Woolard who made very appropriate remarks. The little body was laid away in Glenwood Cemetery beneath a bank of flowers. "You've gently smoothed the crumpled strings, And laid away the dainty things, Wee shoes, too that merrily tripped, Have into silence forever sliDped. Jackets and trousers, brown and blue, Living things they seemed to you. How they have climbed, and marched ar.d run. Bounded with joy and danced with fun· Gay little cap3 that moved in the air. And sometimes rested on waving hair, Stout little shoas that tramped around— Tenderly wrapped, and silence bound. But. ah, the precious little one Whose merry, restless life is done. Though wrapped in silence, too, a space, Shall lift again the same dear face, With resurrection life aglow, When the heavenly trumptets blow. In hope earth's treasures lay away, And wait the dawning of the day." Something new almost every day at the 5& 10c store. GARDENING TIME vill soon be here.

Not lost, but gone before may be ruly said of Mary Susan Ledbetter. )ur dear friend several years ago re vested us when she dieu to write her ibituary. We do feel so incompetent. Ihe was a woman of rare personal harms ever loving and kind. Was oved by her host of friends both old nd young. 'Tis hard to realize that he is gone as she left us sixteen months go to visit her three daughters in Vaco, Texas, with the assurance that he would return to her home in Missis ippi to spend the remainder of her ie. But alas, we little thought that good ye was said for the last time. We ave the assurance if we emulate her xample we will meet where there rill be no more goodbye's. Her'chil ren will miss their loving mother, but he awaits them beyond the river as lie gaye every eyidence that she was making a happy change. She was a li e long member of the 'iaptist church, and to her one could point with perfect propriety and truthtulness and say in the words of the Savior "Behold an Israelite iadeed in whom there û no guile." And so dear ones there is no sting to death, And so the gtave has lost it,s victory It is but crossing e'er with bated breath And white set face a little strip of sea To find the loved ones waiting on the sho*e More beautiful more precious than be fore.
