Wier, of Starkville. who was assisted by the pastor at Verona. Dr. Wier united Mr. and Mrs. Hay in marriage, and was the pastor and life-long friend of the family. He came by special re quest to be present and conduct the services: One of the principles of the Young Men’s Christian Association is that any entertainment given under its auspices is guaranteed to be first class, and the musical number given at the court house Wednesday night by the “Music Makers” helped to bear out this repu tation. These four young men came to Tupelo as the second number of the Y. M. C. A. lyceum course. They per formed brilliantly and the audience could have listened for another hour without feeling the least bit tired or worn > The male quartette was the es pecial feature, although the perfor mances on the marimbaphone were al so thoroughly enjoyable.

Mrs. Mary Robinson died at 6 o'clock Thursday morning at the residence of her brother, Henschel, superintendent of the government fish hatchery, after an illness of about three weeks duration. Mrs. Robinson had been in failing health for some time and owing to her advanced age the family and physicians realized that the final summons could not be long delayed. The immediate cause of her death was heart affection from which she was a sufferer for several years. Deceased made her home in Tupelo for the past three years, and during that time formed many pleasant associations, both in church and social life. She was a woman of rare intellectual attainments and her society was sought and enjoyed by a large circle of devoted friends. She was a native of Baltimore, but for many years made her home in Cincinnati to which place the remains were taken for inter ment.
