Miss Anna Boarman, and aged lady and member of a prominent Martinsburg family, died suddenly of heart failure a few minutes after 10 o'clock this morning. She was a daughter of the late Rear Admir al Charles Boarman, U. S. N.. and for years lived in the Boarman man sion bouse at the sontheast corner of the Square and Queen street ' Miss Boarman bad gone to St Joseph's Catholic church, -close by te attend the funeral of Mr. J. L McDonald. Shortly after she bad taken her seat in the sanctuary and just before the service began at 10 o'clock, she was suddenly attacked with heart weakness. She was as sisted out of the church and down the stone steps at the front entrance where she collapsed. A chair was procured from the rectory nearby, and seated in that she was carried to her home. Dr. J. W. McSherry was hastily summoned, as it was seen thar she was dying, and Rev. Fr. Martin was called from the church. The youug priest adminis tered the last rite to the dying wom an, and then Miss Boarman was carried up stairs to her room; but she expired before she reached there. The death of Miss Boarman'came as a great shock to her friends, the circumstances adding a peculiar sadness to it. Miss Boarman's mother was Miss Nancy Abell, a member of an old and prominent family of this city, before her marriage to Admiral Boarman. The deceased was one of their thirteen children and was born in Martinsburg where she spent nearly all of her life. She was educated at the convent in Frederick, Md. While yet a young girl she spent a few years in New York while her father was in charge of the navy yard there. For a number of years she and her wid owed sister, Mrs. Nora Lynch, lived together in the well known Boarman house. She was a member of the Catholic church and was devoted to its work. Besides Mrs. Lynch the deceased is survived by two sisters and one brother. Mrs. Susan M. Harris, of Pembina, North Dakota; Mrs. M. J. Broome, New York, and Joseph Boarman, in Missouri. Miss Boar man was a first cousin of Dr. J. W. McSherry, Mrs. Sarah Harrison and Miss Bettie J. Hunter, this city. Martinsburg, W.

The girls basket ball team of the Christian University, Canton, Mo., met defeat at the hands of the Monroe High School at the above score, last Saturday night The game was clean and snappy from the beginning to the end both sides struggling hard for the honors. The first few minutes the game looked very; doubtful, the score at one time being 4 to 3 in favor of the Cantoi girls, but the home team could not stand to lose this, their last game of the season, so they settled jdown to their usual quick, snappy - work and the first half ended with a score of 9 to 4 in favor of Monroe, Although the Canton girls out classed our girls both in weight and age, they did not seem to have the power to make use of these advant ages. Monroe has every reason to be proud of her team because they have defeated representatives from some of the strongest High Schools in the state and in the' last game, a University. Parcels Post.

Smith Ratify Income Tax Washington, Feb. 3. - Four more state legislatures today ratified the amendment to the constitution pro viding for income tax. . This is three more than the number re quired to validate the proposition, providing for the tax measure which will be passed by congress at a special session to be called by President Wilson this spring. New Mexico, Wyoming and Utah were the states ratifying today. Demo cratic leaders in congress believe that under this new law they can raise at least $100,003,000 annually. Not So Bad After All. The play given at the opera house Monday evening under the Young Ladies Sodality of the Holy Rosary Church was greatly enjoyed by the large audience present. Every young lady and young gen tleman taking part entered into the spirit and each performed his or her part well. They had been carefully trained. Eight Hundred For Hen. Listen to this cackle. "Lady Show Me" is a hen. She has a record of 281 full-weight eggs in a year and she has just been sold for $800. That is not the rec ord price for a prize ben, but it is a large one. Report has it that one matron of poultry aristocracy is valued by her owner at $10,000 but this is as probably an arbitrary valuation. Taking the sale price of "Lady Show Me" as a basis of comparison, however, and one may readily see that the humble hen has come into her own. Assuming that she is about the average weight of a full grown hen -say about six pounds and it is plain that she is worth about $133 per pound. Even the highest priced race j horses, in the heyday of the popu larity of racing, never brought much more money than this. It is true that prize dogs are occasional ly snld for fancy prices, but, taken all in all, it is likely that, in her un oblruMve way, the h.a ff relies as much on the market ;;s -3Py animal in existence. And the best of i1. b thr she is worth it. If ever a t: bi;m is jus tified for an riiiimt.! !cr breeding purposes, it is whtu t. pri hen is sold. She will return more on the investment, in product and rogency and bring more r-;ai iatisfaction that almost any animal which, can be purchased. Columbia States man. Habit. We have read somewhere that the cost of stopping a railroad train had been closely figured out, and that it was much greater than the expense of running a train several miles. We do . not know which is the harder to stop, a train or habit but are inclined to think the latter. We have never tried stop ping a train. If trains are as hard to stop as some habits, few would eer, be started. No. one .would dare ride' on them. - Boys, never start a thing you are not sure to stop. Never start a habit you think you may want to stop. It saves a great deal of trouble not to start it. LaBelle Star. Senator McClintic Senator McClintic, of this district is meeting hearty recognition in the Legislature. He has been appoint ed a member on seven crrnr'rtees namely. Judiciary, 2nd, Apj.r dilu tions, 3rd, Criminal Jurisprudence, 4th. Private Corporation 5i!.. In surance. 6th, Rules and Joint Ru!?s 7th, Clerical Force. These are the most important committee.? in the Senate. He was the only new Sen ator who was given the Chairman ship of two committees. McClintic introduced the "Blue Sky" bid a measure to regulate investment companies. Should it become a law the unwary will besased many a dollar. It is probably ih' most important bill that has beea intro duced so far. Ralls Co. Record. Stone Will Kun Again Missouri's Senior Senator, while in St. Louis the other day, announc ed that be would be a candidate for re election to the United States Senate in 1914. "I am not here expressly for the purpose of looking after the inter ests of my re-election," said Senator btone, but I will say tnat. it i en joy my health, I will be a candi date. I expect to have opposition but that does not necessarily worry me. I dsn't mean it to be inferred that I disregard any opposition, for like a prize fighter, I might fight once too often; still. I always have had opposition." Fulton Tele graph. The Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Church will meet with Mrs. Harry Jarman next Friday afternoon at 2:30. Miss Willie G. Maddox is visiting in Ely.
