Judije Coxe, "hut the en I was peaceful

at his side, Imt onee the keen eyes were
glaz.'d and pet in the struggle. Mrs.
Conkling and daughter both bore up
bravely, but the wife was most pros
trated. Mrs. Oakman supported her
mother. The ashen pallor deepened upon
the emaciated face. Mr. Conkling gapped
three or four times and passed away. In
death the lines about the mouth and on
thii face were slightly drawn. He was
much ctnaciattd. out still in death the
face seemed natural. Immediately after
the death Judge Coxe and J)r. Anderson
left the house. No arrangements can be
made tonight for the funeral. The ar
rangments will be definitely settled when
Mrs. Conkling becomes more composed.
Judge Coxe said that in death Conkling's
mouth was slightly open, as though he
had died with a gasp. Mrs. Conkling is
alone with her daughter and is com
pletely prostrated with grief.

A Texas Republican Convention

Texas Congressional Distiict met at

If You're Coing to QuitQuit.
The Chicago papers are bothering
oyer the question: " Can a man who
has taken from five to ten drinks of
whiskey a day fwr four or five years,
stop suddenly drinking ?" Of course he
can. A little self-control is needed. If
he has not eaten hardly any food for a
week, let him swallow some eggs .vith-
out the yolks being broke, that are
soaked in vinegar Crost-e &; Black well's
is nreurame. cover me eggs ana vine
gar witli plenty of Cayenne or black
pepper. Rest the body after the first
and second dosv, which should be two
or three t-ggs each time. Drink carefully,
but plentifully, of milk and cocoa until
you think the stomach is cipabls of re
taining food, then g ahead, but don't
orge. A few oranges through the day
will lie binerleial s well as plenty of
milk, cocoa or water these will satisfy
the craving for something to drink, as
well as nourish and stimulate the di
gestive organs. If the stomach will r't
retain tnc urst or second Ciose, persist
until it does. Exercise your will power
anl iietermmnion. iaKea lime exer
cise through the day, and when night
comes walk at a rapid gate until you
feel fit to drop from exhaustion, then go
to bed. You will dream and kick and
toss about in your sleep and wake early
the next morning and want a drink.
That's where vour resolution comes into
play. Don't touch a drop of intoxi
cating liquor even it you feel near
death's door. That night you will
sleep a great deal bctt- r than the night
before and the next dav vou will feel all
right and have no desire to " bowl up.
