Wife of Ex-Governor And One of Arkansas’ Best Known Women Passes Away—Bids Her Husband a Touching Good-Bye. Mrs. Mary Kavanaugh Oldham Eagle, wife of Ex-Gov. James P. Eagle, died Sunday morning at the family residence, 219 East Seventh street, after an extended illness. The funeral will take place at 10 o’clock this morning from the residence, and the interment will be in Mount Holly cemetery. During yesterday hun dreds of friends called at the residence to take a last look at the features of one whom they had known so well in life. A large number of telegrams of sympathy were received from all parts of the United States, the news of the death having gone out Sunday night. “You have always been a good, kind husband, and I have had a happy home here. I am sorry to have to leave you alone, and sorry to leave our happy home, but you yet have a great work to do, and I have a better and happier home up yonder, and am glad to get to it. Good-bye, dear.” 1TT.Ia.1_ i.1_- __ __1._1?_. i.1 ! TY 1VU UltlSOU WU1UO UpVU JLiOJL UjJO IUC j spirit of one of the most distinguished women in Arkansas took its flight to the great beyond, and there was sor row, not only in tne stately mansion over which she had for years reigned a beloved queen, but in many homes in the city of Little Rock and the state of Arkansas. Mrs. Eagle has, for the past fifteen years, become known throughout the state and na tion, and numbered among her per sonal friends the foremost women of America.—Gazette. GOVERNOR’S PROCLAMATION. Executive Chamber, Little Rock, Feb. 16, 1903. Death having claimed one of the purest, noblest and grandest women of Arkansas, Mrs. James P. Eagle, wife of our former chief executive, it is with deep regret and sad hearts that we bow to this great affliction; and in honor of her memory, I, Jefferson Davis, chief executive of the state of Arkansas, do hereby order and direct that all business be suspended at the state capitol until high noon on the 17th inst. in honor and commemora tion of the obsequies of this noble woman. Given under my hand and official seal, this 16th day of February, 1903. JEFFERSON DAVIS, Governor of Arkansas. RIVER STILL RISING. White River registered 22.8 feet on the Newport guage Tuesday morning at eight o’clock, a rise of 3.7 feet the preceding 24 hours. At Mt. Olive, 62 miles above Bates ville, by the river channel, White rose 18 inches Monday night, which indi cates that not much further rise from that stream need be expected unless the snow is melted by a warmer tem perature than now prevails. All points on Black River however, promise a heavy rise and many river men refuse to modify their first fore bodings and still declare that White will reach 30 feet on the Newport guage. Should the cold weather continue, these calculations are probably too high, but few doubt that the danger line of 26 feet will be passed and even the high bottom land overflowed. GREAT WEATHER CALENDAR. The Chattanooga Medicine Co , the manufacturers of McElree’s Wine of Cardui and Thedford’s Black-Draught have just issued the 1903 edition of the Cardui Weather Chart and Calen dar. This Calendar has sprung into universal prominence by accurately foretelling the Galveston flood and predicting the droughts and floods of the past summer, a year ahead of each occurence. This office has just received one of these calendars, which consists of twelve sheets of paper, 13x20 inches in size, all fasten ed together with a gilt tin strip and a brass loop hanger. Each sheet con tains the calendar for one month in figures that can be read across the room. Under the figures patent weather signals indicating Prof. DeVoe’s Weather forecasts for every day in the year appear. We under stand a few copies of it can be secur ed by sending 10 cents apiece in pos tage stamps to The Chattanooga Med icine Co., Chattanooga, Tenn. IRON MOUNTAIN’S NEW DIVISION. Not ice Given In Official Circles of New (Division to Become Effective March First. Effective March 1, another division will de added to the Iron Mountain Railroad between St. Louis and Little Rock for freight runs, Hoxie being the headquarters of the newly formed division. The new division will be from Hoxie, Ark., to Piedmont, Mo., a distance of 99 milds. It will have 240 miles of track. A number of men will go from the Arkansas division to Hoxie to take runs on the new divi sion. Trainmaster W. S. Hobbs of the Arkansas division has posted a notice to trainmen and conductors wishing to work in the new division to tile applications with him. Under the agreement with the brotherhood orders two-thirds of the men will be taken from the Missouri division and one third from the Arkansas division. The mileage taken from them is eighty miles from the Arkansas divi sion and 160 miles from the Missouri. The new freight division will be added to the Missouri division, which jurisdiction will be extended to Hoxie, giving 226 miles on the main line. The new Hoxie division will be as follows: Main line, Piedmont to Hoxie, 99 miles. Doniphan branch,' Neelyville, Mo., to Doniphan, 20 miles. Cairo branch, Poplar Bluff to Cairo, 74 miles. Dexter branch, Dexter to Grays Point, 37 miles. Total, 240 miles. After March 1, trainmen and con ductors on freight trains will run from Little Rock to Hoxie on the north end instead of to Poplar Bluff, which has for many years been the stopping point. At Hoxie a new crew will carry the train to Piedmont, where another crew will take it into St. Louis. This cuts the main line mile age on the north end from 179 to 119 miles. Now the north end run is the longest on the Iron Mountain system. As one-third of the freight conduc tors and brakeman for the new divi sion will come from this division, there will probably be a good many move from Little Rock to Hoxie dur ing the next two weeks. SERVICE DISCONTINUED TEMPORARILY. The Iron Mountain fast mail train No. 3, which arrived in Little Rock at 2 o’clock Monday afternoon from St. Louis, did not carry a dining car as usual, and the through passengers ate in the depot dining room. It was stated that the cutting out of the diner was only temporary, being due to the burning of one of them Friday night between here and St. Louis. That there was no diner in St. Louis to come out with that train. “Those who laugh last laugh best,” but those who see “A Wise Member” will laugh the loudest, the longest,— in fact, will laugh all the time. It’s the funniefet ever.” At the Opera House, Friday evening, February 20. ■...-..... ,■! IT PAYS TO USE THE Long Distance Telephone Service —of the— Southwestern Telegraph & Telephone Company.
