eath of Miss Virtie Brand.
Our community was (deeply saddened
eaily this mornin' when the news spread
over town that Miss Virgie Braud is no
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. He has purchased
the residence and office of Dr. Her
ring and he and his family are most
desirable acquisitions to the pleas

Rev. A. 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

O)FFI' or
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
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,
President of The Alcorn A. & M. College.

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.

Mrs. Lettie Kelley and son Brad

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. Butthen in jsticeto
the road, can any railroad make a
schedule to plea every body?
