A mother in Israel fell asleep when the freed spirit of Mrs. Elvira Morris went back to the God who gave it. She had been called to Big Sandy by the illness of relatives, was taken down with tho grip, and after a few days illness death came peacefully Tuesday morning and she has joined tho enumerable host, of the redeemed on earth, who cry " Hosanna to our King." Mrs. Mor ris was one of the pioneers, so to, speak, of Benton County, where she grew up to beautiful young woman hood. It was then she was married to Col. W. P. Morris, whom she sur vived only a few short years. Her life was characterised by one long series of good deeds, and many a wayfarer on life's tempestuoushigh way has risen up and called her blessed. There was a tender spot in her warm, motherly heart for the sick and afflicted, and tho purity of her life and conversation, her kind ness of spirit and grace of conduct, her pat ience and fidelity in the dis charge of every duty will be held in kind and grateful remembrance by tho people of this community. She connected herself with the Methodist Church early in life and through all the succeeding years she lived a consistent christian dying with a triumphant faith and hope of everlasting immortality. She is survived by six children John P. Morris, of Union City; V. F. Morris, Mrs. William Caraway and Mrs. J. B. Bowles, of Big San dy, and W. L. Morris and Mrs. W. F. Maiden, of this place. We ex tend our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved relatives, with the earnest hope that oven so great a bereave ment may be overruled for their higher and eternal good. She was broughthome Wednesday mornincr, Funeral services were held at tho Methodist Church in the afternoon, and in the presence of a large con course of relatives and friends the body was tenderly laid to rest by the side of her husband at the Camden Cemetery. OBISDIKJiCE. Editor The Ciironicuc: We beg of you a little space to say a tew words to the mother who has children to rear and is confront ed with the difficult task of com manding obedience. All parents wish their children to be obedient that is, to do as they are told without question or dispute. Yet we have only to glance about us to see what a signal failure most parents make of their efforts in this direction. Why is it that such a f undam onta virtue as obedience is so difficult o acquirement that few children pos j soss it in perfection, and many par c 1 1 1 h FH-in to have given up in de spair the attempt to inc.ieaie it? There are two n asons whieh lie at the root of thin slate of affairs; lelny in beginning the training, and want of persistence in contin uing it. A child six months old is not too young to be taught what obedience means. Long before lie has reached this ago a baby knows that he can get what ho wants by crying for it, and ho can abo bo taught that Homo things are not yielded even to this appeal. It is, of course, absurd to suppose that an infant can bo made to un derstand and obey all the wishes of his parents, but it can be impressed upon his little mind that there is anauthority over him against which it is useless for him to rebel, rebel lion being futile and profitless. When once this is understood, the. difficult task of teaching obedi enco is half done. The other half comes later, when the roasonim powers have developed and the child can be trained, to yield his own will to that of its parent as a matter of principle. A Mother. Camdon, April 24. MAY FESTIVAL AT NASHVIIXK. Tho May Festival at Nashville this year will bo tho greatest yet given in that city, tho floral parade being already of proportions far larger than before.

THAT CONVENTION. , Editor: Mi Under the above heading your expla nation of that, premature mass-meeting was well and appropriately said, and fully explains the situation and how easi ly it is for certain influences to do an in justice to honest Democrats who are at home attending to domestic matters, but who have at heart the interests of the party at large. I don't believe the responsibility rests upon tho executivo committee or the chairman of tho committee, or that the chairman knew of .so short a call until he saw it in print. And in all probability some members of the committee do not know of the call or the mass-meeting to this good day unless from rumor. COttKSCKEW.
