OWH OF MRS.
JOHN T. M
After a several months' period of
ill health, Mrs John T Tccl died at
4 p. in., Monday, April s, at tin fam-
ily home, 715 North Church street,
this city. The announcement ol her
death came as a surprise to the
friends, few of whom, wero aware of
her critical illness. In fact, her Im-
mediate family did not realize that she
was ho near death's door until shortly
before she breathod her last.
Miss Ida i'earco was the second
daughter of Hiram pea roe, a brother
of A. II. I'curcc oj' McKlnney. She was
born at Itenner in Southwest Collin,
Feb. 15, INTO, and was reared there
and at Piano'where she received most
of her schooling. She was united In
marriage Sept. li, isn«, to John T.
Teol who with one child, l<cnn, 10-
yoar-oltl daughter, snrvlvo her death
Another child, a ♦ton. dleti m infancy.
She Ih also survived by the following
brothers and sisters: Jasper and Sum
I'earee, both of California; Mrs ii II.
MeConnell, of Frisco, Texas; Mrs
Mary Simpson of Arkonsn.t and Mrs
Sallie Page of California. Another
I brother. William 11. I'earee, was one
'if tho party of I<1 or DO Americans
that were taken from a train at ('lil-
Uiiiihuu, Mexico, two years ago and
massaeied by Villa bandlis, he being
Ih. Itrst one of the victims to be kill-
ed. The de,'eased profcSHod religion in
early girlhood and Joined the Metho-
dist church in which communion she
lived a most faithful Christian life
until death. Site was n% modest, re
tiring disposition, devoted to her Cod
and her church. As a wife she was
loving, devoted and sweet -spiritoil.
Her heart-broken husband dei lares
that til all llii" Iwenly-lwo years of
their married life, she novel uttered
an angry word to hint. She lavished
all I lie tender love possible in a moth
or upon her only living child, Lena, 11
bright High school girl, 'who in turn
'devotedly returned her love ill every
| ministration and help that a child
'could bestow upon a frail mother. The
rending of the earthly ties of this
happy little family circle by the cruel
Intrusion of death Is causing the
hearts of the husband and young
daughter to bleed with deepest grief.
They have the Hyinpathy of many
friends In this dark hour of sorrow.
Funeral services wore conducted at 2
p. m. at the First Methodist church by
Presiding Kid or C. W. Dennis, assist-
ed by Hr. J. L. Pierce, The burial

This will be a modorale storm on
the Pacific slope, will slightly increase
as II moves eastward but will not ho
a severe storm. Not much rain from
this storm; most rain shine an last
storm. Trend of temperatures will be
upward to a greater extent than tho
season calls for. tlonornlty good crop-
weather is exported for balance of
April and everything favorable to
corn planting. South of latitude 40,
east of meridian no, and south of 45,
west of that lino, Indian corn should
lie planted earlier than iihiiiiI and
north of those lines later tliun usual.
In nearly all cropsoiisons some
months are much drier than others
und tho planting, sowing and culti-
vating should be guldgd by the dates
of most rains and greatest drouths.
Tho kinds of crops to plant and sow
should always be governed by tha
kind of soil you ho>vo and the amount
and times of the principal rains and
drouths. In some seasons corn should
not bo planted; in others wheat
should not lie sown. When we ean
follow these rules millions In labor,
seed and productions can ho saved.
Wo are near the lime when those
rules may be followed.
I would tie glad to make such ad-
vice public now, but official science
would attack my work with deter-
mined vigor. 1 iiiu gaining, however,
ami they iit-o slowly losing.
22. Hy fro atoins Is meant those
ltint are not parts of solids hut
floating In the electrosphot e, or In a
vacuum, or in space outside tho at-
uiosplu i e. The fuel that scientists
have discovered and demonstrated
I hat free atoms have clcctosphoros
in which very much sinnllor particles
ot matter aro revolving, In orbits,
around the atoms, is probably the
most Important of all discoveries. It
proves that Nature's laws aro uni-
form and sustains my hypothesis that
the Kit rtli is n typical atom. This per-
mits lite hypothesis that tho Sun,
also, Ih a typical atom. If (rue of
Kurth and Sun then it Is true of all
the suns, or stars, we can see with
unaided eyes and all tlie stars that
make up ihe dim light of the milky
way. Official science will be compell-
ed to accept my hypothesis, theoreti-
cally, that the motive power of the
universe conies from the condensa-
tions of original pre-otherlc matter
into the solids of comets, moons,
planets, suns, and the latter Into tho
great coal sacks. When tlioy accept
these hypothesis Nature's science Will
go forward with Increasing progress.
