Don't bo too modest, gentlemen, liomem Dor tho old adage, "lho early bin. catches the worm. Aneut the general comment t hat no blue birds have been seen this spriug, tho most plausible explana tion we can oiler is they wero kulec by tho severo cold during January and February. Tho blue bird is not migratory, but winters here and the past winter being unusually severo they were frozen to death, Tho Knights of Honor have in aucurated a commendable move mcnt.

McElyea, which occurred at her homo last Friday morning, was a great shock to, tho people of this community, and caused a feeling of sincoro sor row in all hearts.

She had been mar ried over 51 years, was a member of tho Methodist church 4G years, and died aged G7 years, J months, and 15 days. She was devoted to the church and to her work in the vineyard of tho master; her home w7as tho horne of the minister, and her hand and heart was ever open to every good work; she was always ready to comfort and assist tho sick and distressed, and manifested a thouehtf nl and, loving interest in tho welfare of others. She did not fear death, but had a calm, unfal tering trust in the promises ot her Savior, bho leaves an aged bus- band and two daughters and three sons, all but one of whom aro mem bers of the church, runeralser, vices were held at tho Mcthodis church and tho remains were quiet ly laid to rest in Camden Cemetery Saturday afternoon.
