The days are kv~m favor of true
summer—tbrriotism, and as sure
for a save a great country his po
is a correct one, A large
standing army is unnecessary
where love of country ranks so
high in the heart of the American
citizen as it does. It may be, as
some one said, the Philippies gives
us the key to the situation; they
also will give us the key to more
trouble than we are able to take
care of comfortably:
“They are howling at Washing
ton for more army and navy, more
money to fortify the Pacific coast to
cut off imaginary enemies and
/ more for fortifications in the blessed
Philippines. The best thing to
do with these islands is to give
them away to the first man who
comes along with a “yaller dog he
wants to swap. Then bring home
the army that has been engaged
in killing savages and dying itself
of diseased livers, discharge it into
the productive industries and here
after keep a standing army of not
over 20,000. That’s enough to
guard forts and police the country.
If we should have a real war the
people may be depended on to
volunteer to fight it and quit after
the trouble is over. Give the
money saved from all these re
trenchments to agricultural experi
ment stations and farm colleges
where it will do some good.”

Mrs. Barry was an eminently
good-woman, having nearly all of
her long life, been a consecrated
member of the Presbyterian church
where she had zealously served in
the cause of the Master. She was
the mother of seven children—
three sons and four daughters,—all
of whom had been raised to ai
honorable manhood and woman
hood, their lives being moulded
and blest by the beneficence influ
ence of a devoted and Godly moth
er. Her life was beautiful and
amiable, and she was greatly es
teemed by all who knew her. The
deepest sympathy of our people
goes out to the bereaved relatives
in their great sorrow.
After services at the home by
Rev. J. E. Hobson, her remains
were laid to rest in Oak Hill cem

them.—Shelby County Times.
