Mat-kin city mail carrier we have
on our desk a copy of the Dublin
Newe-Letter published at Dublin
Ireland by Itichard RelHy under
date of "From Tuesday June 23
to Saturday June 27 1741." The
News-Letter is quite a novelty In
journalism as compared wltb ths
modern newspaper. ïi coutaJue
only two pages set in old style type.
One page is devoted exclusively to
book dealers' advertisements. On
the news page is a map showing the
plan of Carthagena its harbors and
forts. A graphic account is given
of the battle of Carthagena in which
the Spanish fleet was entirely de-
stroyed by the British.
She Sleeps in Peace.
Sister Capitola W. McClanahan
the beloved wife of our worthy
brother Wm. McClanahan is no
more. On the morning of June 17th
she sank quietly and peacefully to
rest surrounded by kind and loving
friends whose earnest prayer was
that she ini^rht be spared to them.
A gentle and noble spirit left its
prison house of rlav and mounted
to a higher and nobler sphere. She
is gone nut her memory will l>e
cherished by all who had the good
fortune to know her. Asa wife and
mother she was kind and affection-
ate living a life which made her
home a happy one. As a church
member she was faithful and true
ever willing to make any sacrifice
which she felt might advance the
cause of the Master. As a member
of Waxahachie Kebekah lodge No.

in her every-day life the lessons
taught in the lodge room. No case
of misery or distress came within
her observation that she did not
work faithfully to relieve; no bitter
tear th»»t she did not seek to dry
and no bruised and bleeding heart
that she did not strive to bind.

ing resolutions and ask their adop-

Before You Tell a Secret.
If you are just on the point of
making a confidence it is a good
plan to pause before doing so to
note the proportion between the
times you have regretted giving a
confidence and the times you have
regretted withholding it. If after
this you decide upon making your
friend a confidant you must have
weighty reasons for thinking him
worthy of it.—Ex.
Young Old Men.

man up to fift and he is hardly re-
garded as old until he has exceeded
