his car and in passing the en-
trance of an alley in the south
part of town was fired upon with
a shotgun. . The windshield of

ing is said to have no connection

W. H. CAMERON
DIES AT LAMPASAS.
Bartlett and community has
again suffered an irreparable
loss through the death of one of
its truest and best citizens Mr.
H. A. Breihan aged 70 years
who departed this life Thursday
morning the immediate cause
being heart failure.
When he was called for break-
fast by members of the family
no response came from him
and upon going to his bed he
was found lifeless having been
dead it is supposed about two
hours.
He returned Wednesday night
after a hard day's work on the
farm seemingly in reasonably
good health although he had
not enjoyed his usual health for
licensed minister of the gospel
although he engaged in farm-
ing as a profession in which
he was quite successful being
an energetic and thrifty man.
He always took an active inter-
est in local affairs church and
school. For many years he
served on the local school board ;
he was on the board of regents
of A. & M: College for several
years and also a member of the
board' of Blinn Memorial Col-
lege. He was chairman of the
board of directors of the First
National Bank of Bartlett and
a member of the board of direc-
tors of the First State Bank of
Jarrell. In all these positions
of honor he was a great factor.
At a meeting of the school
board this week Mr. R. S.
Covey who has been superin-
tendent of the Holland school
for the past four years and who

tion many years ago. He was

in whicn ne was tound it is
quite evident that he died with
out a struggle simply fell
asleep not to awaken until the
resurrection morn. He died as
he lived calmly and peacefully.
Mr. Bryan was born in Upen
Hanover Germany July 21
1856. He came to America
with his parents when three
years of age. They located at
Industry TJexas. In 1881 he
was united in marriage to Miss
Sophia Muenzler and in 1882
tihey came to Bartlett where
they have since resided. To
this union was born eight child-
ren five sons and three daugh-
ters all living except one Fred
who died a few years ago at his
home here
Besides the devoted wife the
following children mourn his de-
parture: MJrs. Louis Behrens
Copperas Cove ; Misses Olga and
Laura Breihan of Bartlett ; Rev.
Ben Breihan Brenham; Dr. Er
nest Breihan Dallas; Ed Brei-
han Houston and Albert Brei-
han Abilene.
Mr. Breihan was a member
of the Methodist church and a
elected superintendent of the
Bartlett school vice Mr. Howard
resigned. After considering the
matter and conferring with his
board of trustees who reluctant
ly released him from his con-
tract Mr. Covey accepted the
position here.
On behalf of Barlletfs citi-
zenship the Tribune extends a
cordial welcome to Mr. Covey
and hopes that Holland's loss is
Bartlett's gain.
ter man ever passed from our
midst. He was a true Chris-
tian and exemplified such in his
daily walk. He always upheld
the right and condemned the
wrong and while he expressed
his opinion frankly on all issues.
he was broad enough to accord
his fellow-man the right to his
opinion. He was well posted on
all the current events and was
and interesting person to con
verse with.
His home of that humble
Christian environment that ad-
ded charm to his personality
was open to the visitor at all
times; his heart ever beating
in unison with the hearts of the
happy and the hearts of the af-
flicted made it an occasion of
l'oy tb be with him. He had an
eye of generosity which over-
looked the friend's broken gate
but saw the rose in his garden.
Thus he spent his life. And
now having reached the alloted
life of man he has sighed for
the last time closed his eyes to
the usual cares of life and pass-
ed on to that home eternal in
Heaven provided for those who
have not lived for self alone
WEIR DRUGGIST

Georgetown Tex. May 15.
W. C. Joinei 79 a druggist was
killed when an automobile went
into a ditch as the steering gear
broke near Round Rock Sunday.
His neck was broken. In the
car with him were Mrs. Joiner
and their daughter Mrs. Effie
Labenski who was driving and
the latter's children.
Howard has been elected as su-
perintendent of the Mart High
School and accepted the posi-
tion which is a more renumer-
ative one from a financial view-
point. This change in our school
affairs came as a surprise to
many and inasmuch as it has
"come to pass" the Tribune
hopes that it is best for all con-
cerned. Mr. Howard has work-
ed faithfully durjng his stay
her and done what he thought
was for the ibest interests of the
school in all respects. The Tri
bune commends him and his
splendid family to the good citi-
zenship of Mart.

but for the good they could do
to others.
The writer deeply feels the
loss of a friend and the commu
nity has lost a man whose life
was butjstpnding and reflected
the image of God in his daily
activities and we believe the
world is made better by his
having lived in it and the Tri-
bune joins'-the many hundreds
of friends in all parts of this
section of the state in sympathy
for the bereaved family and
iriends in their sorrow.
The funeral services will be
held at the home tomorrow
(Saturday) at 10 a. m. Burial
in the Methodist cemetery east
of town.
A series of revival services
conducted by Rev. J. P. Kidd of
Austin Texas will begin at the
Presbyterian church Tuesday
evening at 8 o'clock.
The public is cordially invited
to attend; christians are asked
to pray for the blessing of God's
Holy Spirit on all these services ;
and unsaved people are earnest
ly urged to come with us and
quietly hear and prayerfully
think on the eternal interests of
their souls.
