BOOKLET MSI FREB FOR SALE BY BURNAUGH A MAYFIELD. I luiggiuniuimiiinii: I RECORD DEATH RECORD. The funeral of Gerald Holmes, who died Tuesday night, was held from the M. E. church Friday forenoon at 10 o'clock. The building was not large enough to give room to all who wished to pay respect to the universally loved lad, whose long illness and untimely death touched the very heart cords of the entire community. The altar, pulpit and organ were fairly banked with beautiful flowers and superb wreaths nearly covered the casket. Rev. C. E. Trusbload conducted the services, preaching i sympathetic sermon. Beautiful hymns were sung by a union choir. The pall bearers were W. F. Savaga. Herbert Browning, Irving French, Arthur Pace, C. F. and Will Zurchsr. Behind the caiket marched the boy members of Get aid's class in schoal, then the bereaved one, relatives ind friends in carrlagss, making a long cortege that slowly moved to the cemetery where the suffering wasted form was laid to rest. Among the out-of-town temple at the funeral were Mr. and SID, Fred J. Holmes and MUs McDonald of La Grande, .r. and Mrs. E. A. Holmes and son .iJdward of Wallowa. IN MEMORIAM. It has bean we 1 said that "Death oves a shining mark." How true Is his In the death of Gerald Eaton iolmes, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. -lolme.s, o: this city. Gerald's entire Ife of 14 brief je rs, 4 months and 43 days, has been spent In this city ind his tie -th is a shadow felt by he entire community. His bereav ed father, mother, sis.er and brother ire comforted In their sorrow.lby the ender memories , of his beautiful ife. Among the most conspicuous -raits of his charac er was his genial, ;enerous, loving nature which made lim a universal favorite among the oung pe:ple and he also had the are quality of companionship that jndeared him to older people io that it Is we 1 said of him 'None knew him but to love him, Vor named him but to praise." During his la:e illness ht fortitude inder great suffering was most wonderful. He also showed at all imes the mojt tender solicitude for he other member of the family who vaited on him aj lovingly and fakh ully. His struggle for life was a irave one but was marked by a eslgnation to the will of God that evealed his lemtirul soul.. The 'air young life s j full of promise ms been t anspl mted that It may loora In brighter fields than thoss )f earth and t io igh the "vacant hair'' In the home speaks ever sad y to heart that are left most deso ate, yet the consolation that Gerald itill lives will sinctlfy this grief to he home and to the many friends vho mourn his doath.

The man was jealous, Insanely Jeal ous, though heaven knows the girl gave him no cause. Girls never do. He knew the name of the man ho feared. He did not tell her so, however, but beat about the bush, as they do on the stage. At the same time, when this story opens, they were having an emotional tussle. , "Oh, George," she. said, "what Is the matter?" "You know well enoush." he renllod bitterly. "I assure you I do not," she insisted. "But you do, and you do nothing to moke our life sweeter." "Tell me what I should do," she pleaded, for, though she might be frisky with George, she did not wish to lose her grip on him entirely. "Oh, George, George, why are you not frank with me?" she pleaded again. George's face became ashen gray at her fateful words. "That Is It!" he hissed, the awful fire of jealousy blazing In his eyes. "That is it, Miss SmithUlns. If I were Frank with you Instead of George, you'd be all right." The clrl would have renllpd. hut h could not. Her tongue clave to the roof of her mouth. The other fellow's name was Frank. London Answers. A Drop In Value. "Have you beard of Mrs. Fadlelgh's latest craze?" "No." "She thinks it's the proper thing to lead a dog ubout the streets.

Frenchmen of every rank and class dearly love titles. The manager of a Paris insurance company was decorat ed with the Legion of Honor a few days ago, and the clerks iu the em ploy of the company presented him with a piece of plate to which their Tlsitlng cards were attached. On look ing over thtle he was n good deal puz iled and amuBed by the visiting card of the office "boy," an old soldier from the Inralldes, who wns employed to open the office doors from 0 to 4. Under the man's name was the title "the emperor's orderly." He sent for the old soldier, who stumped In and saluted. "Of what emperor are ycu the order ly, and how?" he asked. The old In vallde drew himself up to attention. "I am the orderly of the emperor." he said, "Napoleon, le Petit Corporal." "But he is dead. He has been dead some time," answered the puzzled manager. "I dust his tomb for him," growled the old soldier. London Express. No Morals In Dreamland. It as many writers have suggested, It is the soul Itself that guides the im agery of dreams, how are we to ex plain the fact that in this chaos of ideas and feelings there is so little dis tlnction betweeu right and wrong that when dreaming we commit acts for which we should weep tears of blood were they as real ns they seem to be. As Professor Hoffman has said, "The familiar check of waking hours, 'I must not do It because it would bo un just or unkind,' never once seems to arrest us In the satisfaction of any whim which may blow about our way ward fancies." From all of which we must conclude that the dream realm is a world that u entirely oblivious to any moral sense buu mat, rnougn it may be true that a troubled conscience mav Drodure nr affect our dreams, the dreams them selves are never burdened with a con science. Bohemian Magazine. Going Some. Being pursued by a farmer and his three sons after being caught In the chicken yard, a young colored person nna just made up his mind that be was not eluding his followers as quick ly as might be when a long eared Jack rabbit Jumped up from the roadside and started down the road ahead of him. The would be chicken thief had run a few hundred feet farther when the farmer and his boys were aston ished to hear the negro shout in a voice that qunvered with fright, though unrestrained, "Say, for de Lord sake, you rabbit, get out ob de way and let some ouc run who can run." Argonaut Tax on Hats. Not only have hats at various times been subject to taxation, but have even been made the subject of special laws. Thus In Henry VII.'s reign none was allowed to sell hats at a larger price than 20 pence or caps for more than 2s. 8d.
