Died—Sam Y. Smith, at Denver, Colo., on July 11, 1890. Born, reared and educated in Huntsville, Texas; spending there the fairest years of a busy life, connected by blood and marriage with many of its oldest and most honored families, known with respect and affection by all its people —this dear son of the old town has passed to his rest.


With tears and prayers we commit him to God. As boy and man—through every stage of life and every change of fortune—he was a dear, true friend, a loving son, a devoted husband and father, a generous and useful citizen. And in this world, what human endeavor can reach further? To the wife and children weeping about his grave, to the aged parents whose hearts are bowed with this last supreme sorrow, to the sisters whose love entwined itself about his noble life, to his sorrowing kindred everywhere, we would tender such consolation as stricken souls may receive from the sincere sharers of their grief.
