Died last Monday morning at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Suggs, their beloved daughter, Miss Etta, age 16 years. Thus again grim death, whose remorseless and inexorable mandates all must obey, has invaded our midst and selected for his victim a fair and fragile flower; one whose fair and blameless life and whose nobility of character, like a ray of sunshine, cast its beams among all her host of friends. Surrounded by sorrowing ones, the burden of this life was laid aside, the golden cord was broken, and she passed peacefully across the dark river to assume spotless robes of immortality, and dwell where death and sorrow are no more. At 4 o'clock Monday evening the remains were laid to rest the Pryor Creek cemetery in the presence of a large circle of friends.

Small pox is in Ft. Smith and if our people are not very careful we will have it in our own midst before we know it. Mr. Wm Alston has taken time by the forelock, and had Dr. V Berry vacinate his children. Parents should have their physician vacinate their children, as the fatalities of this dread disease are very greatly reduced by so doing.

And he is very careful in selecting his provisions, selecting the greatest variety and the best quality the market affords. His house is gaining in popularity every day, and his most excellent dinner last Sunday speaks well for his house. He has several invited guests.
