One or Farmington' Host Prominent And Best Known Business Men Passses Away. Mr. Unbelt Tetley, ono ol our beat, most trusted and highly esteemed bus iness men, died at his hniue iu Farm ington at 12:30 a. iu., Sunday, Janu ary 0, 19U7, of dliibclis, aged sixty-six years, unit) mouths and eighloon days. Siuce 18l8 he had been iu the jewelry and watchmaking business in Farming tun, had built up a largo and prosper ous business, and was closely iileutilicd with ulher iuterests and enlerpiises of ibe town and county, Ho was a man ol flue business judgment, public spirit aud strict integrity. His character was beyond reproach, anil he possessed an approachable, geuial and Inviting na tuse that drew to him friends and held tlicm, for be was ever true aud sit.oere in bis friendships to others. No man, perhaps, ever mora fully enjoyed tbe confidence, liust aud warm respect of his lellowmen tbau Hubert Totley, and few men were more deserving of thorn. He was a member of long standing of both the Mssonio and Odd Fellow tralornitics, and to him, perhaps, more than any oilier member, ' ht. Francois I.oiIl'u No. 4 8 I. O. O. F. owes its suoocss anil linancinl solidity. Siuca his initiation into the order in lHij'.l, much of the intervening lime being financial secretary and a proper ty trustee.of the lodge, ho waluheil and directed its interests as carefully and couici'iitiously as ho did his own, and bis splcudid liu-ine-s judgment mid counsel did much to euhalico its proa peiily. His family relations were idoa!, ami to bit affectionate devotion his now bereaved wife and, sorrowing children and grandchildren responded with a love thai was tender and beautiful iu its intensity. Ho will be greatly missed iu tbo largo ciiule of friendship and business associations that knew biiu so well, but who can measure the deep sorrow in the hearts of his loved ones and the loss that they feel, or what words of human sympathy can assuage their grief? Sueh consolation as human sympathy affords is theirs in unstinted measuro. Hubert Tetley -wm born in Derby, Eneland. March 19, 1 M4C.

In bor retirement from the aohools, after fifty years service, the citizens of St. Loois have a great opportunity to show their appreciation of her work and already tbore is union disoussioo of some fitting way in which to express it. Miss Beeson is ono of tbe women whom It is a liberal edu cation to know, and to have been as sociated with bcr In the relation of pupil and teacher has been an ines timable privilege for tbe young people of the schools. , She is still the ex ponent of the good old-fashioned Ideas of womanhood, which shunned any publicity and made right living the first object of education.

Finder please mall as above. Tbe Irontoo Register reoords tbe fact that on two different occasions Christmas week deer ran through the u Boston, aud then learned the wutch- mnkiiitr trade. After learning his trade he travolcd extensively over tbe country, working at his trade, and iu 1808 camo to Farmington and en gaged iu the jewelry aud watchmaking business. On January 20th of that year he married Mrs. Ann Hccklcmau, daughter of the lato W. T, Gay of Farmington. To this union six children were born, five sons and one daughter. All except one son who died in Infancy are living and have reached the estate of manhood aud womanhood. At tbe time of their marriage his wife hud one son, John Henry, who at the request of Mr. Totley took bis namo, and between whom and bis stop-father there has ever existed the love and close re- atiouship of father and son.

Peaceful be his sleep. Miss Beeson's Resignation. Fifty ycrws ago, then just 15 years of age, Miss Susan V. Kecsnn began her career as n public scliojl teacher, in which she has won a deserved dis tinction. Thero are teachers and teachers. I ho buys and girls who have enjoyed the benefit ol Mis Benson's instruction, many of whom are moil and women now, doing sititdy work in tho world, unite to say that the subtle personal inlliicnce exercised was of more worth to llieiu than the facts of history, literature or art which alio communi cated. Teachers of this kind are the real leaders. They are the character builders, tho helpers who by tact and understanding help the young people to help themselves. They touch the sprites of character and arousa Ibe latent powers of the child and youth. Tho pupil of such a teacher does not merely receive a headful of learning. Ho is stimulated and grows from within; he becomes a self-developing, self-determining man. If tliu value of public service be measured by the manhood and woman hood trained for social duties, wc can not ralo too highly the worth of women who, like Miss Beeson, work year after year in obscurity, quietly, without self-assertion, with loving cute elicit and perfect tbo elements of haracter which make for robust good i nd truth. Sueh public servants arc not with out honor, even in their own com munity, although they are in obscurity. They are remembered in quiot hearts who are grateful to them. But in this case tho facta aro well enough known to Justify tho suggestion of a visible testimonial. A Beeson school would comniomorato a public fact of no small Impottaoce to St. Louis. St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Tbe above deserved compliment will be appreciated by the thousands ol people who have been under Mlts Beeson's influence. Miss Beeson has been granted a leave of absence in stead of having her resignation ac cepted, aud in February will come to Farmington to make ber borne wun her nieoe, Mrs. M. P. Cayee, and she ill be a welcome addition to rarni- Ington'a social circle Among tbe many old frieuds of the Into Uobort Tetloy who were bore to attend the funeral were Messrs. Fred J.
