At tho ago of 27, on Nov. 20 ho was married to Miranda L. Barstow, who survives him, -had Mr. Nash lived 10 day9 longer, this aged couple would have celebrated their fifty-second anniversary. In July 18"j2 Mr. and Mrs. Nash came west and settled In lorn?, and about 41 years he engaged In merchantlle busi ness, thenco to Toledo, Ohio, and en gaged for a period of five yoars as traveling salesman. In 1870 he purchased a farm In Eu reka and moved hts family of wlfo, daughter and son to it. Upon this farm he has remained since, until a short time ago, when being too old and feeble to longer face the burdens of farm life, Mr. and Mrs. Nash took up their borne with their son Fred on his farm adjoin ing that of his father's. During the 32 years spent upon his farm In this neighborhood, Mr. Nash has Identified himself as a man bcliey- Ing it the duty of man to make tho most of himself Intellectually, physi cally and morally. Prominent in sup port of good schools, ind n-itrious to a rare degree, temperate In every parti cular we have heard him say that though during his experience as a traveling salesman, he was much and Intimately associated with thoso who made free use of tobacco and liquor, he never felt a tcrapatlon and never did use either, and he has never been heard so far as known to utter any thing approaching on oath. Possessed of a rare command of language ho was notably moderate in its use and appli cation. Usually of a cheerfully and sympathetic frame of mind it was im- peritive in his naturo that ho must have something to do. And up to and including Thursday preceeding his disccase on Sunday he busied himself about affairs of his farm singlDg as he tolled. Only a few days ago the writer find ing him busy at work harvesting pota toes, joked him about his industrious habits, his answer thoroughly display ed his lack of appreciation of thoso of Indolent habits.

Remember the nam'NDoan's.tukonosubs ltute. AVuya to bo lteautlful. Every girl wishes to be beautiful and for that matter, every woman too. But where beauty Is born, not made, nd luck of it in faco and form is often Irrepairable, any woman can make her self so charming that tho loss will ney r Ihj noticed. In tho latt number of that well edited periodical, the Michi gan Tradesman, uoroiny uix, us ia mous editorial writer, gives some ex cellent Ideas on tho subject and a few xtracts will bo of Interest to Dannkr readers. "If a girl is ugly she cannot make erself pretty, but she can mako her- elf to agreeable that people will forget all about her plainness. In tho first place, she can cultlvato a beautiful peaking voice, that Shakespeare de larcd to bo tho greatest charm in wo man, ana tnat is an opinion tnai no body feels called upon to dispute. "Nothing Is so repulsive as the high, hartsh, loud, parrot-like voices with which so many women speak. I once new a beautiful young girl who had uch a voice a voice like a fil' that set his nerves on edge and I beard a man 6ays of her: 'Good heayensl think of having a voice like that discuss the ills with you over the breakfa&t table or remind you of tho things you forgot ' No girl can change her nose If nature gave her a tip tilted one, but she can moderate and modulate her voice, and 11 tho world is captive to a sweet, low voice in woman. "Then 6he can cultivate that power f expression that is far and away the most subtle beauty In the world. The woman who has no soul in her face; who has nothing but regularity of fea tures and perfection of coloring, is othlng more than a chromo, of which, in time, we will tire when Its colors fade and Its subject becomes hackney- d, but tho woman whose beauty is made up or tlsnlng expression, oi sym- 1 pathyand or intelligence is a living picture of which we can never weary. Jt is intelligence, heart-sympathy, understanding, that makes a woman's faco like that, and any woman may have it for the cultivating. "Another attraction that every girl may nave is that oi Deing an agreea ble companion. There Is no excuse for any woman not being a good con versationalist. This does not mean being a continuous conversationalist, which is the greatest aflictlon on earth. To bo entertaining means to be a good listener as well ps a good talker. Every hnman being has some topic upon which he or she can expa tiate endlessly, and the woman who has the wit to find out our hobbies and the unselfishness to lead us to speak of thr-m; who will listen with an expres sion of rapt delight whilo we talk about our babies, or our business, or our am bitions, or our triumphs, or our troub les, has that charm that will enable her to snap her lingers at beauty. Sympathy and tact these arc tv70 other substitutes for beauty that not only take its place but far out distance mere good looks in their ability to charm. They have also those other advantages over beauty, that while beauty may not be cultivated, they can. To my mind tho most charming quality that a woman can possess is svmoathv that exquisite sense that enables ono toto enter Into the joys and sorrows of others and to literally fulfill tho Scriptural injunction to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. Beside such a wo man, whose face glows with Interest as you talk to her; whose eyes grow hu mid as you describe the grief that has torn your own heart, or whose lips curl Into laughter as you tell her a funny story, how poor and insignificant tue fiultlfss beauty of a cold, self-centered woman, who listens to you with a bor ed air, and when you pause to take breath begins to relate the sensation sho created at such and such a ball. "We do not ask if tho woman of gra clous manners and tact ond gentleness h.is features of of classic perfection or coloring that an artist would like to paint. We only know that her faco is the faco that wo like to see best about our hearthstone; that we lcok toward when wo aro glad or sad, sure that we f-hall always see in the eyes the love light that makes beacons of hope and riu-i-r and haonlness to us. and that het face is ono that wo hope to sec bundlnc over us when wo look our las on earth."
