IN LOVING REMEMBiRANCE
of Mrs, Meredith, who died at her
home near Stark, the twenty-second
day of March. It was sad to give her
uo, but just to think she has gone to
rest beyond the skies. She was loved
by all who knew her, she lived a
Christian life, was ready to help when
ever she was culled. Loved ones just
remember the words she spoke, *' I am
ready to die.” It is sad to give her up
but remember the good deeds she has
done in the past.
Mrs. Meredith joined the church
when she was eighteen, and has lived
up to the time of her death, a good,
kind, helpful and useful woman. She
lived to be eighty-four years, eight
months and eight days old. Oh how
sad it is to part with her. but live a
Christian life and meet her some day
beyond the skies. She leaves three
daughters, several grand-children and
other relatives and friends to mourn
’Tis sweet, to meet, but sad to part.
To give up a loved one, that broke,

A Voice they loved is stilled.

At a recent meeting of the elty coun
cil a resolution was passed authorizing
the water board to make a contract
with the Great Northern Tower com

proposed contract the maximum price

A Ray of Light From FngGnd.
Municipal Indebtedness resulting
from taking over public service utili

$2000.00 insurance, while the losses
were about SSOOO 00. The Post Of

Better Than Brains.
A poor, dyspeptic little minister was
walking out one Monday morning
when he chanced to meet two brother
clergymen, hale, hearty looking fel
lows. After the customary greetings
they asked hirn how things looked. He
pulled a long face and said everything
was had, It was it dying world, and
the outlook was wretched. “Now,
brother,” said his questioner, “you are
wrong yourself. Something is the mat
ter with your brain. You want to get
that right, like ours,” slapping his
comrade on the shoulder, “then the
world will look brighter to you.” The
dyspeptic looked at both his “brothers”
a minute and then said, “I’d rather
have the stomach of one of ye than the
brains of both of ye.”—Boston Herald.

it dust to the people to explain
and at same time to inform
the public generally that I
will be found at my same place
°t business ready and
to sell all kinds of goods in my
line of business cheaper than
any merchant in Jackson for
the cash or on time as my
customers may desire. Ido
not want chattel mortgages
because it costs my customers
to have the same recorded and
the price of recording is al
ways added to the price of the
goods. Open account is all

free J o call on me for your
My reason for making ar
rangements to accomodate you

Jackson are these: My chil

School here and while their
Educational advancement has
always been perfectly satisfac
tory to me, yet I find that I
cannot now enter them in an
other college without to a
great extent changing the
course of training they are now
receiving. Again I have made
many friends in Jackson and
