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

o'clock, she was suddenly attacked

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
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

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

transferred. This is a good show

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
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
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
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
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, 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.

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
