In Remembrance.
Annie May Adkison was born Jan
21, 1007. She was throe years old arid
died March 28, 1 910. Her mother died
three years ago.
Annie, deur, the morn is dawnitijr,
How it brintrs sweet thoughts of thee
When you used to wake and call me
Pa PR, papa, come to me.
True you were my little sunshine,
Bringing joy the livelong day.
Those bright smiles that chase the shadows-
Sunshine e'er she went away.
After darkness rose the dawning
Little one so fair and sweet
Papa came, but snd the morning, ,
Black eyes closed in slumber deep.
You were my sweet joy and comfort-
Many hopes were bound In thee.
How 1 miss you, O my darling-
Little Annie, aued three. .
Just three years ago her mother
Precious we had laid away:
Then we laid our little daughter
To rest until that day
When the doors of Heaven open,
Jesua calling them to rise;
Oh, 'tis then we hope to meet them
Far beyond the vaulted skies.
Thus the days pass on in sadness-
Sorrow fills our heart and home;
For we know on no to-morrow
Will our absent darling come.
Little garments neatly folded,
Little shoes are put away;
Little chair is left so vacant,
None can fill like little May.
Once for all her tired lips murmur
Now I lay me down to sleep
Ne'er again to hear her whisper
I pray thee, Lord, my soul to keep.
No more good-night kiss receiving,
Then lay on her pillow white
Ask the Lord to guard my treasure
Safe until the morning light.
Papa misses those sweet kisses,
Ontle arms my neck entwine;
Naught is left from out the shadow
Of a casket white-rose lined. '
Thus seem memories of my darling
In her gentle babyhood
As she spoke, her heart o'erflowiug,
Pupa, I low you, O so good.
Pupa's heart i snd and lonely
Little one so fair and true 1
But he hopes to meet his darling
Where there's no such word mlieu.
Thus we leave our little treasure;
Angel? now their vigils keep
Until Jeans comes and calls thee
From thy calm and peaceful sleep.
By a Cousin.

The Fly Menace.
Tho time of the year has arrived
when special effort should be made in
the city to suppress the house fly, or, as
it should be more properly termed, the
typhoid fly. The movement begun last
summer in Nashville to cxterminat the
fly was mainly educational, but it was
followed by good results. Public atten
tion was directed to the evil of the fly
and to tho various means available for
protection against the infection caused
by the fly and also to tho necessity of
more general and concerted action upon
tho part of the people to exterminate
the nuisance. The more general uso of
screens has been encouraged, and the
matter of screening should be insisted
upon earnestly this year.
The health authorities have been act
ive in this respect, and are constantly
eady to aid in fly extermination as far
their limited means and agencies will
permit, out it is important mat House
keepers and tho public generally should
also be active in adopting all available
means to prevent the production of fiies.
In this work cleanlincs of premises is all
important. Mayor Howse has urged
the importance of hearty co-operation
In the work of "Clean-up Week," and
Health Officer Hibbett is doing all In
is power in promoting a policy of city
cleanliness. Cleanliness is tho keynote
of all sanitation, and careful attention
to the removal of dirt and all obnoxious
matter throughout tho spring and sum
mer will b cone of the surest safeguards
against tho infectious fly. ashvdle
