changes in the personel of the a
faculty might have been bene- c
ficial, but wb are prone to believe c
that an entire change, which C
seems now inevitable, will not be
for the best interest of our High I

first year o± its existence. Our Ia
school is the best asset we have; It
the backbone of our moral. -
social and intellectual uplift, and r
its interest should be guarded I
with the greatest care. Individual '
interest should not be allowed to It

Elizabeth A. Magee.
After a critical illness Of somn
six weeks, caused by a fall, Mrs.
Elizabeth A. Magee, widow ol
David Magee. died on Friday
'night 3t the home of her grand
son, D. C. Wood.
"Aunt Lizzie" as she was corn
monly called, was born near Mad
isonville, St. Tammany Parish,
in 1836, but become a resident of
this parish and town in 1850,
where she resided till her death,
doing much in' the way of loving
care and sympathy for those
Having lost all of her own chil
dren, she in middle life took four
grandchildren to raise and con
tinued her care and "mothering"
for a large band of great grand
children. She is survived by
one brother, Simon Peak, of
Baton Rouge, and two sisters,
Mrs. Zay Garrett and Mrs. Ed
Metz of this parish.
Interment took place on Sat
urday at 2 P. M. in the family
burial ground one mile below
We extend sincere sympathy
to the sorrowing relatives.
Died-At the family residence,
in Franklinton, La., on Saturday
morning, May 4, 1912, Mildred,
the eldest child of Dewitt E. and
Della Simmons Branch
Mildred had just entered her
sixth year and was counted un
usually bright, affectionate and
dutiful. Her child-life was full
of sunshine and happiness, and,
among her relatives and friends
she diffpsed acstacics of joyous
ness that contrasted strongly
with adverse experiences of
grown-up folk. No sorrow had
entered into her ti"e a- tici
patipnbot thq lmorrow were
wasi. he.. pleasedre. She iw-ada
comfort to her parents and a
companion to her sister and
brother, who are younger. She
was sentimental to a remarkable
extent, and meditative. Too
young to read, she listened to
others. One Sunday after Sun
day school she related the lesson
of the day, whose subject was "I
go to prepare a place for. you."
She seemed to think that the
Savior had her in mind. Before
a week had passed she yielded
to the call which the Lord's
words implied would follow His
preparation. and with a face
radient with angelic expression
she raised her arms as though
to be lifted up, expiring without
a trace of pain. Next day, Snn
day, May. 5th, the funeral ser
vices were conducted by Rev. T.
C. Corkern in the Baptist church,
assisted by Reverands L. C. Wil
son and Needham Alford, and
appropriate songs, accompanied
by music rendered by Mrs. (.
C. Simmons, in the presence of
an overflowing house; the bier
and platform covered with flow
era, the scene was impressive,
pathetic and inspiriring. From
the church the funeral cortege
proceeded to Ellis cemetery.
Thus lived and died a child.
By her death sorrow and sad
ness of heaid have entered into
several homes. Numerous rela
tires have sympathetically en
deavored to~eomfort the bereaved
father and mother, There is
oonolition in the thought that
death ends our sorrows here. In
the belief that places are pre

selling you a pair of shoes that doesn't
fit you as one that does, but there isn't
as much pleasure in the transaction for
either of us.
We know you will get as much value
and as much service out of misfitted

what we'll sell you if you'll let us.
