TRIBUTE TO HENRY ASHLEY.
As scarce and dear as paper is,
my friends of the Lancaster Herald
will hold it cheap, I am sure, tp
publish a passing tribute to the
memory of a man who. for nearly
half a century, has cast his lot and
made his home in Dallas County.
H. C. Ashley was born in Copia
County, Mississippi June 14, 1854;
came fo Texas with his parents in
childhood. He was married in 1876
to Miss Rhoda J. Smith, of this
county, the daughter of Un^le John
I. Smith, as rugged and pure a nug-
get of gold as was ever dug from
the great mine of life. Her grand-
father, the father of Uncle John I.
Smith, was killed by the Indians'
and *was buried neaT where Jacks-
boro is now situated. He was buried
by his companions, a fire was built'
over the grave for the purpose of
destroying the scent and preserving
the body from being the prey of
wolves. After this rocks were piled
over the grave to prevent the
Scratching of marauding wolves.
Eight children were bom to Mr.
and Mrs. Ashley, four of whom —-

An old adage as true today as in all the yesterdays.
No car offers cleaner lines, more truly dignified gracefulness or
deeper lustre of finish than does the Cleveland Six. But these quali-
ties would be but a surface, were it not for what is beneath them.
The exclusive Cleveland motor, the struction, the ease of its control, the
most highly developed of the powerful soft cushioning of its low underslung
over-head type, gives a character of spring construction, the certainty of
performance in flexibility of power its brakes,—all these qualities add to
