Our community was (deeply saddened eaily this mornin' when the news spread over town that Miss Virgie Braud is no more. Miss Brand was but 19 years of age and the youngcst child of lion. HI. C. Braud of Burnside, Ascension parish, La. The young lady came to St. Joseph just after Christmas to be the goest of her friend and former school-mate, Miss Inez Losey, in whose wedding she was to serve as bridemnaid,-and her wedding gown be came her shroud. Leaving home ill, she grew rapidly worse after reaching St. Joseph and was confined to her bed when the wedding took place. Her father was notified of his daughter's illness and came at once to her bedside, accompanied by several members of the family, including her aunt and foster-mother, Miss Elise Brand, whose idol she was and who has reared her since the taking of her mother in her early childhood. Miss Brand received every attention that love and science could possibly be stow, but it seemed God's will that she should be called to her reward, and just as the morning sun was rising out of the East and making God's world brighter and better, her beautiful young soul, re leased from its tenement of clay, arose from the habitations of man and soared beyond the realms of light into the bosom of Him who gave. Throughout her entire illness loving hands tenderly ministered to her every want, for truly all who knew her loved her for her sweet personality, her gentle nature and kindly disposition. While her taking has cast a gloom over our town and filled many hearts with grief, the hardest blow falls on her beloved father and that dear aunt who loved her as her own child, and to whom she came as upon the wings of love when first she learned of her illness. Gently and lov ingly she nursed her patient by day and night and when God's finger touched her and she fell asleep, with the simple faith of one who believes in a re-union Up Yon der, she bore her dead back home, back to a maiden funeral couch, sanctified by her love and hallowed by her prayers. And so the beautiful young life that was so fraught with hope and possibilities has filled the mission for which it was created and the God who gave has called to His own. Quietly she sleeps beside her minted mother in Metaire cemetery in New Orleans. Peace to her memory, peace to her soul. Dr. J. D. Rogers, who has re cently located in Newellton, having succeeded to the practice of Dr. S. P. Herring, was a visitor to St. Jo seph this week and tuade most fa vorable impression upon those who had the pleasure of meeting him. Dr. Rogers is from Mississippi, where he has already had several years experience in the practice of medicine and comes to Tensas well recommended.

Shaifer, principal of the St. Joseph colored school, having on Janu ary 6th, completed his thirty-second year as teacher of that school, a large congre gation met at the(iiltield Baptist Chu ch for the purpose of holding appropriate exercises in commemoration of his thirty years as a faithful teacher among them. In the congregation were many who at tended sch'wl thirty-two years ago, andl many who are attending the present ses sion. The e::ercises consisted of songs, essays, orations and communications. Among the latter was the following from L. J. Rowan, President of Alcorn A. & M. College: O)FFI' or ALuLORN A. & M1. COLLEGE L. J. Rowan, Prest. Alcorn, Claiborne Co., Miss., January 4, 19, 1. The Young People of St. Joseph, La.: My Dear Young Friends--I chanced to learn of your intention to hold, January otth, appropriate exercises in commemo ration of the thirty-two years of service that our friend and "father," the Rev. Dr. Shaifer, has seen in the school-room. It being inconvenient for me to he present in person, I beg that you admit of my participating with you, by mews's of this communication to you. Indeed, I claim that in any movement contemplating the bestowal of honors upon this worthy friend of ours, as a re ward for past labors, I come in for first right. First, because in point of age and e:.perience, I should judge that I am the sc:ior of most of you; and second, be c use of all those who have been helped along life's pathway, during this genera tion of his services, none of you have been helped mole than I. Thirty years ago, I was given, like clay in the hands of the potter, into the hands of him whom we now honor, to be moulded into something-into whatever the Master-workman should see fit, or should prove capable of fashioning me into. And God be praised that the contact of my young life, with his, was most wholesome; and I flatter myself that my lift now is but a reflection of those sterling qualities of heart and soul that my young being imbibed from him who taught me. To impart te.-t-book instruction is but a small part of the teacher's work. Char ter-building is of most vital concern; and in the pure and spotless life of Dr. Shaif er, who was my exemplar in my tender years, I saw daily nothing but correct examples for my emulation. Let me commend you for this thought ful and worthy movement of yours; and may your lives, inspired by your contact with his who is the recipient of your hon ora, be perpetual benedictions to the world around.. With my very sincere regards, I take pleasure in subscribing myself, Your friend, L. J. IROWAN, President of The Alcorn A. & M. College. On Friday, January 27th, the ladies of the St. Joseph School Im provement League will give an en tertainment in the nature of a Book Guessing Contest at the Masonic Hall. Though not requisite to ad mission, each one is requested to represent the title of some book, either in fiction, history, religion or science. A prize will be offered for the person guessing the most of the titles represented. Admission fees of 25 cents for grown-ups and 10 cents for children will be charged. Refreshments free. Every one is in vited. Doors open at 7:30 o'clock. There have been quite a number of burglaries committed in St. Jo seph during the past several weeks, the miscreants being sufficient ar tists in their line to cover up all tracks and make detection most dif ficult. On one occasion the residence of Mr. Bonney was entered and some money taken, another time the barber-shop was raided, yet on another occasion the cottage ad joining Mr. S. P. Hornaby's house was entered and money and valu ables have since been mimssing, then Mrs. Macpherson's residence was visited, to her loss, and several other houses paid tribute to the nightly visitors. The officers were active in their efforts to run down the thieves, but evidence seemed difficult to obtain. Again, last week the servant's house in Mr. Horns by's yard was entered and the wardrobe opened and contents scat tered about the room. A young negro named Richmond Williams was discovered in the house, he is now in jail; another negro name Steve Ireland was arrested some time back. Both will answer at next term of court. DR. I. D.

Mrs. Lettie Kelley and son Brad ley Kelley, of Red Lick, Miss., were visitors this week to her daugh ter, Mrs. Carl Van. The change of schedule of the M., H. & L., which went into effect on the 1st inst., does not seem to meet with popular favor along the line. The trains have been making very poor time of late and running very irregularly and the mail service is notifactory. The early arrival of the south-bound makes almost im possible to reply same day to car esponce received on morning . No doubt the service is ad vantageous to Natchez, and in thot particular is not inconvenient to us, but connection at TallUlah out of Vicksburg is very nmertain, due to the narrow meargin of one hour giv en the V., S. & P., which is ge. ealy condlderably late reaching that point.
