The announcement was made in last week’s Star that Rev. J. S. Murrow would preach the funeral sermon of the late Geo. A. Cooper, next Sunday. Bro. Murrow has been unexpectedly called away to the Baptist Association at Buffalo, N.Y. and we have not yet heard whether the appointment will be filled by some one else or the funeral postponed till Bro. Morrow’s, return.
We are sorry to see that Jule Alvord, one among the many genial and gentlemanly conductors on the M.K.& T. has retired from the service. We will miss you Jule, in our peregrinations up and down the road, for you were a favorite of ours. Notify us of your objective point and the Star shall follow you, under whatever skies you may roam.
Most railroad cars have little cases against the wall in which bibles are placed for the benefit of passengers, but they are so seldom used that men who happen to have a considerable amount of money about them slip it between the leaves for safe keeping.
We had a call last week from our old friend Ed Burgeman. We are pleased to see the years resting so lightly upon his brow and trust it may be many a long day yet till his baggage is checked to the undiscovered country.
Friday evening the Star office was honored with a visit from Miss Alabama Tennessee Kentucky Jones. We may possibly be a little mistaken in the young lady’s name, but think we have part of it anyhow.
The young folks had a “hop” at the St. James last Wednesday night. We were kindly invited by our friend Todd to be present, which would have afforded us no little pleasure, but were unable to do so because of having to stay with the “little ones at home”.
Saturday night a policeman, while attempting to arrest M. L. Langley, proprietor of the Varieties theatre at Denison, for disorderly conduct, shot and killed him.
