OBITUARY
Mrs. MARY A. HOWARD, wife of THOS. G. HOWARD, aged 74 years departed this life on the night of the 21st of June, near Canaan in this county. Her last days were spent in much suffering, which she bore with Christian fortitude and patient endurance. Her mind was clear until near the last. She expected a perfect satisfaction and even anxiety to cross over the River and receive her everlasting reward, which awaits all the faithful. She leaves a son and three daughters to mourn her loss, but not as those who have no hope. May God sanctify their bereavement to the good of their never dying souls. That they may one day meet where there is no parting.

FOR THE ---------
The Vernon Courier ---- call for bloodhounds --- seeing criminals and calls --- County Commissioners to look after this crying need of the times. Is there any warrants in the Constitution for taxing the people to buy and maintain bloodhounds? [Age-Herald]
Under the general welfare clause which in the Federal Constitution which covers anything not otherwise provided for and in the state constitution about the same as there is for building jails. The great part of the taxes of the people are collected for the express purpose of catching and trying criminals. The fact is Jefferson county ought not to monopolize the bloodhound business but give us a show in the way of catching criminals. Perhaps the Age-Herald would have the criminals of Lamar to go on with their daring deeds until the great notoriety of Jefferson for crime stands far in the background. Of course one burglary and one attempt to Murder would not be noticed in Jefferson but in Lamar it is quite different. The fact is we are not used to such things and want them stopped at once even if it costs the price of a bloodhound.

THE SHERIFF MEETING
On the 10th day of July they will hold a state meeting in Montgomery for the purpose of forming themselves into an Association. The y want to organize for mutual aid and organize for mutual aid and co-operation, and for the better enforcement of the laws of their common county.

A HINT TO MOTHERS
If you wish to cultivate a gossiping, meddling, censorious sprit in your children, be sure when they come home from church, a visit, or any place to which you do not accompany them, to ply them with question concerning what everybody were, how everybody looked, and what everybody said and did.

Tuscaloosa, Ala., Feb. 4, 1889 This is to certify that my wife purchased of W. A. Wood a Home Comfort Range, about Nov. 1st, it has been in constant use since that time, and the madam is wonderfully pleased with it. With the late improvements, and proper care, it will last a life time. She says it is the best cooking apparatus the ever used. All that have purchased in my neighborhood are well pleased. B. H. WILLIAMS.
Tuscaloosa, Ala. Jan 16, 1889 This is to certify that we, the undersigned, have purchased Ranges of the Wrought Iron Range Company, and can say we are well pleased with them. They bake to perfection, use much less fuel and justly deserve the name Home Comfort.
