Anna two or three weeks ago for the
benefit of his health, died at that
place on Wednesday evening. Mr.
Williams liae been in failing health
for several weeks, and two or three
days prior to hk depth was stricken
with paralysis, which rendered him
unconscious and from which he
never recovered. The remains werq
•taken to Brownwood, where his
^brother Pine Williams lives., for in
terment, and all ;the members of his
family went up from Independence
to attend the funeral. The>deceased

of age, and leavee a widow, Avho was
a daughter of Gen. Sam Houston,
and five children, Houston and Miss
Madge, are grown, and the latter
was to have graduated this cummer

bo charged all except school children
and those receiving invitations. The
exercises at the Third Ward school

A Scrap ot Paper Saves Her Lite.
It was just an ordinary scrimp of wrapping
paper, but it saved her fife. She was in the
last stapes of consumption, told by physi-
cians that she was incurable and could live
only a short time; she weight less than sev-
onty pounds. On a piece of wrapping aper
she read of Dr. King's Now Discoverp, and
got a sample bottle; it helped her, she
bought a large bottle, it helped her more,
bought another and grew bettor fast, con-
tinued its use and is now strong, healthy,
rosy, plump, weighing 140 pounds. For
