He answers the question by saying that they depend solely upon cotton and corn, working awhile in the spring to make the crop and again awhile in the fall gathering same, and depend upon the cotton to pay for goods bought on credit at an exorbitant profit, instead of devoting more of their time to raising things for home consumption and from which they could realize a nice sum even at this small market.

Resolutions of Respect

Resolutions adopted by Evangeline Chapter No. 7, O. E. S.

“No one hears the door that opens;
When they pass beyond our call;
Soft as loosened leaves of roses
One by one our loved ones fall.”

Once more the angel of death has entered our ranks and taken therefrom one of our members; and

Whereas, in the death of sister H. D. Webb we mourn the loss of one who was a devoted mother, a faithful friend and a noble woman; therefore be it,

Resolved, That we tender our deepest sympathy to the bereaved relatives of our departed sister, assuring them that as she was faithful to her convictions of right; as she was obedient to the demands of honor and justice in her station; as she loved kindred and friends, and in affliction evinced a trustful faith; and as she lived in the spirit of charity and the love of truth, so shall be her reward.

Resolved, That this death should remind us of the uncertainty of human life, for “we know not what a day may bring forth,” and be it further

Resolved, That our charter be draped in mourning for thirty days, and theses resolutions be spread upon the records of this chapter and a copy sent to The Gazette for publication.

Maude Selig, Reita Hartman, J. H. Hughes, Committee.
