Albert Terral was born in
Winn parish, La.; departed this
life Feb. 6, 1899.
It is sad to record the (ldeath of
one so young, just started in life
with the anticipations of a bright
future. Truly bath it been said,
"Death loves a shining mark."
For in the bright promises of a
long and useful life, he was called
to other fields in the home beyond
In the home circle his bright
smiles and tender sympathy sooth
ed the sorrow and cares of loved
ones. He was a companion to the
father, mother, and loved wife and
two little babes. His kind voice
is hushed on earth, but in Heaven
be will sing the songs he loved,;
We thank God for the beautiful
life which fulfilled its mission.
Nor has his influences ended, it
will live on for ever. We sorrow
ing ones can draw aside the cur
tains of future, and look into the
angel face as he smiles and waves
his beckoning hands calling us to
the land of love, where sorrows
are no more.
He joined the Baptist church at
Ragan during the pastorate of his
father, (C. V. Terral) as a church
member he was qonsistent, earnest
and profound. His traits of true
manhood, won for him the esteem,
love and friendship of all who
knew him, and well may it be said:
To know him was to love him,
which was fully manifested by the
large crowd that attended the fu
He was deeply impressed when
first taken sick, and for some time
before, said he would not live
The sad wife, father, mother
and two brothers, feel all alone.
He was spared` to his dear wife
but 3 years. 'They miss him ! No
one can fill his place, but may we
all be made better trying to imi
tate his example of living for God.
God chose to pluck the jewel in
the morning of existence, and we
ask Him in the riches of his grace
to help us to live to meet Albert
in "that far away Thome of the
May the bereaved family be wa
tered by the dew of His mercy
from Heaven, and healed with the
balm of his gracious love.
When we see a preelous bloom
That we tended wlth such care,
Rudely taken from our bosom,
How our aching hearts despair.
Sleep on dear'Albert, but not forever.
There will be a glorious dawn.
We shall meet to part no more
In the reourrection morn.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that is "atarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Ball's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting directly
upon the blood and mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the
foundatio' of the disease, and givi,,g
the patice t strength by building up the
constitut on and assisting nature in do
ing its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers, that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
case that it fails to cure. Send for list

A Fruit of Civilization.
There is nothing that so plainly
shows the effort that nature makes
to sustain the human body in health
as the high degree of exemption
from disease enjoyed by our peo
ple, notwithstanding the apparent
efforts they continue to make to
weaken or destroy it. Men abuse
their bodies in a thousand ways;
by excesses; by deficiencies, and
by direct attacks. They work too
hard, eat too much, drink what
they ought not to, and expose their
bodies to malevolent conditions
with a hardihood that is a reproach
to civilization. They do not rest
enough, sleep enough or provide
themselves comforts enough, and
by the practice of many vices di
rectly assault the citadel of health.
It is no refutation to say that men
have better health than they ever
did, and live longer than at any I
past Noachian period. This is ad
initted. Our contention is that
that do not have as perfect health,
nor live as long as they should
with all the lights before them.
How many people eat for any
other purpose than to tickle the
palate or abate hunger; or drink
except to allay thirst or pamper a
perverted appetite; or clothe or
house themselves except in obedi
ence to fashion or to please Mrs.
Grundy I In this enlightened d(lay
the preservation of health is almost
an exact science; and yet how few
even of sanitary scientists prac
tice thoroughly the precepts they
preach, and how many of them,
and others will eat mince pie when
buttered toast is indicated ;or fried
ham and chile sauce, when baked
apples and cream sauce are what
the system needs? We believe
the time will come when self-con
trol, and not appetite, will govern
men's acts; w~en dyspepsia will
be classed with immorality, where
it belongs; when catarrhs, colics,
fevers andml fistulas will be as dis
creditable to a rational man as ava
rice or vagabondism; when gout
and wifebeating will be equally
reprobated; when rheumatism and
rascality will be repugnant alike to
the normal senses of a highly civil
ized people; when men ard women
will live a humdred years, and be
young at three score -and ten.
However, this. state of affairs de
pends to a Ilrge extent upon con
tingencies. If, as some claim is
indicated by a speck of cloud in
the East, civilizatioR receives a set
back as it did 1400 years ago, then
this bright fruition will be post
poned for another thousand years.
But come .it will, in God's good
time.--Texas Farm and uanch.
