I'rennly Kwll Under Its Ut-Unt lens Power, They are not deud; they have but pussed Beyond the mists that blind us here, Into the serene and higher life Of that serener sphere. IJeath is no respecter of pernous. Jts chill breath touches the brow of btibv hood, of vouth and old ae alike and ut such times in many instances where it Is least expected. Wo cling' with won derful tenacity to life and are never ready for the threat change which launches us into eternity. Tho clang ing bells of time are ever ringing night and day. They do not cease to remind us that eternity is near. Tho question for the liviug to decide is, ahall we bo ready to meet the future when the fell destroyer calls. LUELLA O. WEBSTER. I.uella Oscarette Webster was the daughter of Oscar F. and Luella K Webster. Her death, which occurred at one o'clock Monday morning, was a sad one because she was an only daugh ter, a favorite of the family and loved by a host of young friends in the city with whom she has associated. I'uss," as she was familiarly known was is years of age, having been born n Greenville, her parents coming to this place when she was but one year old. Sho was a brisrht and nnt shol:ir in school and would have graduated with the class of '9 had she lived, an . eveni winch she looked forward to with much anticipation, but alas! how quickly aro fond hopes blasted by the breaking of the brittle thread of life. Stricken with typhoid fever lour weeks ago, she was under tho constant care of her mother and Grandmother Kingsley and attended by skilled physicians, but the disease battled their best endeavors to stay it and tho young life passed peacefully from eartli forever. Ser vices were held at tho residence Wed- neday afternoon at two o'clock. Mrs. Kate Ferguson sang a solos am Superintendent .1. G. VanWinklo of tho city schools, by request of Mrs. uuster reau an aunrebS wmca sue had prepared for tho occasion.

Ueed, Agnos Spencer, and Mrs. Vrguson sang several selections. The beautiful white casket was cov ered with a profusion of Uowers, the offerings of sorrowing friends. MARTHA J. PRESSLY. Martha J. Pressly passed away Sun day at i! o'clock p. in. at the ripe old age of M years, lacking a month, at the home of her son, J. I Pressly. She was born in Sullivan county. N.Y.. ind camo to Michigan while it was yet territory. Her husband was a Meth odist minister and the deceased hod been a devotQd and earnest member of that church all her life. Up to a year or more ago tho was remarkably bright md active for a person of her advanced ige but tho evening of life brought with it disease which carried her to the restful home she has been prepariug for. A brief service and pravcr bv Uev. O. Carman at the house preceded the removal of tho remains to the old home cemetery near Stock bridge where it was laid to rest beside those of her usband. J. P. Pressly of this city and Mrs. ucius Rowdish of Stockbridge, her hildren, survive her. WILLIAM It. MOSS. Mr. Moss believes there is a world of joy and happiness within the reach of all of us if we could only see it. He has the fortunate gift which enables him to see tho rainbow colors gleam through the storms of life, and no one comes in contact with him who does not imbibe something of this same pirit. As ono person writes: "To meet him socially is a pleasure. To see him step before his audience, and to look into his face beaming with good nature and a love for others, is to know at once that he believes fully that This world that we're a llvin' in is pretty hard to beat; you get a thorn with every rose, but ain't tho roses sweet;' and so, as wo listen to him, life takes on new meaning." He lectures for tho benefit of tho Congregational choir at the church Saturday evening". (Jo and hear him. Admission 16 cents. How to Look (Jood. Good looks aro really more than skin deep, depending entirely on a healthy condition of all the vital or gans, 'if tho liver Is inactive you have a bilious look; if your stomach is dis ordcred, yod Have n dyspeptic look; if your kidneys aro disordered you have a pinched look. Secure good health, and you will uurely have good looks. "Klectric Hitters" is a good alterative and tonic. Acts directly on tho stom ach, liver and kidneys, purifies the blood, cures pimples, blotches and bolls, and gives a good complexion. Kvery bottle guaranteed.

During this week tho circuit court at Stanton bus been busy with tho case of Swift vs Kanney Uefrigerator Co. Mr. Swift was a format! at the factory for four years, and when he quit he put In a claim for S.H3. 1 1 for overtime. After t tic evidence was in Judge Davis took the case from the jury and rendered a verdict for the 'defendant. Greenville Democrat.

The fine new carpet which has been prepared by the ladies will bo disposed of at this this time and everybody is invited to come and have a good time and get the carpet If they can. Hill, 10 cents. A investigation shows that Faton county has been well bled by tho spar row gang under arrest in Jackson county. Almost Gu000 sparrows have been paid for this year. Over $1,000, nearly three times that of any other year, has been paid out. The highest month was July, when $442 was paid on orders from township clerks, now thought to be forged. The sparrow bounty law ought to be abolished. The city council of St. Louis has passed a curfew ordinance providing that children under 15 years of age shall not bo permitted on the streets of the city after S o'clock at night in winter and 9 o'clock in summer. The engine house bells will bo rung at the hours named as a warning to young ones to get indoors. Many a young girl and boy would be saved from ruin if such a law was made and enforced in ever' city of the state. Following is a copy of a school boy's complaint to a board of directors: "Mr. directors My sister, who is the school teacher, whips me every day. Pa and ma told her to whip me oftcner than she did the other pupils so they wouldn't think she was partial. I write to let you kuow it is too thin. She is an old maid and srets mad be- ause she can't get married, and when ever she gets mad she larrups me. I hate to say such things about my sis ter, but itV wo. I writ. t.inquirr--j-. ou can t slop ner lickln' me or g?t her a husband. Any old thing will do so it's a man. Don't kick a man when he is down. No matter how hard a man may strug gle, there is always some sneaKinf scoundrel, some loathing reptile trj ing to drag him down. Many a man falls not for the lack of merit but for the ack of appreciation by his fellowmen. ireat hearts are full of sympathy, and what man does not require sympathy, tnd support of his fellow men? Fail ure in life is not always loss of capital in a luckless business venture such things are accidents apt to bo met with bv all. Failure in life is loss of self ospoet, loss of confidence in ones own' ' i haraeter. W lien you see a fellowman faltering, grasp him by the hand and help him up, when jou see a man.' limbing, cheer him on that he may" each the top and stand on the summit J Citiens should bear in mind that at ill times local papers are ready ami willing and arc depended upon to push very good thing and especially durf ng business depression and sharp com petition are the papers needed. The push and enterprise of a town or the reverse is truthfully reflected by the oeal press. If allowed to languish and fail the city must sutler, if nourish ing and prosperous the city is largely the gainer. Fvery citizen and es pecially every property holder is in terested in the success ot his local pa pers and should so feel and manifest it by a fair degree of encouragement tnd patronage- It should always hi remembered that outsiders looking foi information regarding a place general ly look to their local papers and theij first impressions are formed from them. Chas. F. Temple, of the Grand Ka- ids and Holding Traction company, re ferring to tho reported alliance between that company and the Intcrurban rail wa3 , says that his company was ap iirn'i r liiwl liv 1 lid lnttnr nt'rrn i ... . . , , , with reference to a combination and that the Intcrurban tnanasement tuado urgent requests for an alliance. Mr, IVinple tutus further that his com. 1 pany has a charter, a riyht-of-way from Millcrcek to Holding and a 30 year, franchise in Holding.
