A Tribute to Miss Amelia Hurley
l'rof. M. 11. Dry, principal of
The Wingale ScIkmiI. writes the
following letter to The tiastonia
(laettc, concerning one of his pu
pils, whose sad death occurred ut
Wingale 011 August liit:
'This sketch is written by her
teacher iu memory of Miss Amelia
who was a student of the Wingale
school and who died ut Wiugate
Aug. 1st, !Hi:t, just one week alter
having returned to re enter scIkhiI.
"Amelia was an ideal student
a kind baited and sweet faced girl.
She was loved by her teachers and
school limb's and by all w ho knew
her. She was not only an ideal stu
dent but an ideal Chi 1st iau. Often
have 1 asked the question, "Why
should one le taken so young and
so promising!" Invaiibly theans
wer comes, "(iod only knows."
Death at any age is mysterious,
but not more so than life itself.
These hurts of ours go throbbing on
day lifter day, mouth after month,
null year after year until sooner or
later the mysterious mechanism
slops and we call this death. Wi
ethe spirit has taken its Might.
In the bright happy days of youth
we don't expect death but some
times it comes and westand appall
ed Is fore its sudden and awful
Death is always sad, but when
it comes to the young it is doubly
so. Teachers and school-mates are
overwhelmed with sorrow, and pa
rents and brothers and sisters
give up their loved ones with
bleeding hearts.
'1 never had a liettcr student
than the subject of this sketch.
Her face we can never see again
on this earth, but she has left a re
cord that shall shine in the minds
ami hearts of those w ho knew he.r

From an Illinois axchange we
get this story of the slickest duck
xx e have heard 01 tor many
dav. A nasseimer on a Wabash
train pretended to be ill. He
opened his grip and took out a
hot-water bag which he got the
porter to fill with boiling water.
Then he opened his luncheon
basket, took out a piece of steak
wirmcd it on the water bag. Af
ter he had eaten the steak, he un
screwed the stopper of the water
bag and poured himself out a cup
ofcolfee. He had the grounds
in the bag all the lime.
We have been hard at work on
a preparation that we hope will,
tutu out all right. It has been a
.lull lime in a div town and we
have become an inventor to keep
from going crazy. We have in
vented a combination salad dress
ing and hair tonic which lays over
any thing that ever came down
the pike. It will cure liaidness,
and it's a delicious dressing for to
matoes, lettuce and cold meats
Besides that, it it a good shoe
Dolish and will remove urease
spots from old clothes, and is the
best toothwash we nave ever
seen. Our fortune U made.
