(Uncle Walt Mason. )
Avoid all things that stir
'your ire, be tranquil, smiling
and serene; for anger is a glow
ing fire that overheats ^ your
blood and spleen. Whene’er
you feel your anger rise, be
propmpt to use some sbothing
balm; for every day some fellow
dies who might live on if be
were calm” Thus spake today
the good old doc. when I had
paid his monthly bill; he always
has some helpful talk that’s
worth far more than helpful
pill. He tells me that my/frame
of mind has much to do with
how I feel; if I am cheerful,
jcalm and kind, it will contribute
to my weal, I try to follow his
advice, and I go beaming here
and there, and if a flivver bumps
me twice, I do not rend my
clothes and swear. No misad
venture stirs my bile, for i recall
the doctor’s rode, and wear a
wide and patient smile, which is
a benison, indeed. The old time
doctor didn’t care about a pa
tient’s mental state . he’d tell
me that I ought to , wear wool
underclothes of heavy weight;
he would instruct me as to hovv
I should avoid the deadly draft;
leave some suggestions as to
chow, and poultice me both foie,

A Sad Death.
Mrs. E- C. Murray, Jr., died at
the home of her father, Mr.
Frank Bennett of Saint Pauls,
on last Wednesday morniog.
March 21st, leaving an infant
only a week old.
Rev. E- 0. Murray. Jr. is a
Missionary to Mexico, and Mrs
Murray came in two months
ago, and since her arrival in
Saint Pauls had had an attack of
influenza, and later developed
pneumonia Her husband had
remained on his field, and knew
nothing of his wife’s sickness
and death until his arrival in
this country, as he was coming
on a visit. It was an nniisuallv
sad occurrence. Rev. Mr. Mur
ray is a brother of'^Dr. R. L
Murray of Raeford.
We are informed that Rev. E.
C. Murray, Jr. had heard that
his wife had influenza, and was
on his way to be with her, and
they were to return to Mexico
when she was able to travel. But
this life is full of disappoint
ments. Somehow, we feel that
the death of Mrs. Murray was
one of the saddest we ever knew.
Her remains were buried in St
Pauls Saturday afternoon.
