Guerry und his prohibition crowd
have done everything in their
power to get Hon. Toe Terrell to
say something and fight back at

For we have viewed with a critics
eye, all the jobs frOm coroner to
president, and can’t decide which
we want, and our friends the “dear
people” have been kind enough npt
to mention us for anything, and we
have felt a delicacy in approaching
them 00. such a grave point, for we
are well satisfied that so many want
work that it will not be hard to
find u servant. But should our law
makers decide to open up some
“soft snap” that most anybody cun
fill, then, and noj until then will
we consent to allow the “dear

1902. She suffered Intensely front it
severe attack of pneumonia for three days
which resulted in dentil, while Dr; W. A.
Moore did all in hit. power lo save her.
Maud was a bright and beautiful child,
loved by nil that knew her, and her little
sisters loved her dearly. It is so hard to
part from our darling baity, never to see
her on this earth again, never to bear her
sweet voice again, and never to bear her
sing her sweet songs on this earth again,
but now she is singing those sweet songs
in Hearen, where she is a bright sbiniag
angel, and we ail hope some sweet day to
meet our darling baby in that sweet bye
and bye, the land that is fairer than day.
“A precious one from ua is gone,' '
And a voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
That never tr ore can be filled!.”
