1 believe it was written by a person 311
srly ignorant of the duties de- *

ht possibly lead others into a the

duty to make a brief reply aad en- ^
ten the writer a little. First, the comi
ter asks, "What has become ot our Chui

he gone to Washington ;to sec ?1

I am still alive, and am happy to

are impassable," and mentioned TuL
fact that at Backlick a wagon
ed over and came near killiug an
colored woman. Now I would
to know if I am to be blamed for .
he bad roadr in the county. Does
the fault often rest upon tfee shoalof
the orerseers whose duty it is
>ok after the roads aHd keep them 'TV
>erly'worked, The supervisor, aa
*
MnBBttanMB&aBBHiRBBN
e^erv intelligent person knows, has
other duties to perform than that of
riding orer the county looking after
the roads. His office duties require a
considerable portion of his time, asj
every one is aware, and it is utterly
impossible for him to look after all the
roads of the county and attend to his
ffice work too, especially at this season
of the year. Everybody knows
that during the winter months, when
there is so much rain and freezing
weather, that the roads cannot be kept
in good order, and possibly some of
them do eet in very bad condition.
But, as I hare already said, il is the
3uty of the overseers to look after the
roads over which they have charge,
wd if they find them impassable to
?ut them in order and not wait on the
mpervisor to order them to have them
worked.
Now, Mr. Editor, I have written a
ittle more than I intended at the outlet,
aB I believed that it wonld require
ml a few plain words to convince any
Sir-minded person that I am not to bo
>lam?d for the bad roads about Backick.
I have always tried to do my
luty as supervisor as conscientiously
is Iconld, and I believe the public
generally will bear me oat in thin
.ssertion. B. G. Tenoait,

Mr, Editor: Tou are and have b?en 0
sry thonghtful and kind from time J.
> time since you haye had the manage- q
eat of The News and Hexald in r
ibiiflhing editorial notice of the death b
f our people. Upon the deceased ?f ^
e subject of this sketch yon said all
at was neeessary for an editor to say fa
think, and yet I think more onght to
i said by some one familiar with the
cti of her life. Perhaps ho one now T
ring, outside of her immediate con.cTion,
knew her better than the wrir.
I knew her and her ancestry ^
ck to the third generation, and I say ?
advisedly, she was no ordinary si
)m*??whether considered from a ^
cial, patriotic or business standpoint. ^
e came of goed stock. On her m? os
nal ?ide she was descended from the
cc
ncaids of revoletionary fame. On ^
r paternal side from the good old Totch-Irish
stock Her grandfather, S.
illiam Watt, who came to this counr
in early life, was married to Jennie
lompson, who was an auit of my
indfather, Robert Robinson; hence
? hlftnd tlmhin erisMer no. ? >
i always recognized on both sides. ^
i Uncle Billy Watt, as we always ?
led ber grandfather, used -to tell i
it when he and Jennie were mard
he had only a silver dollar as bis g
mcial stock in trade; with half of gj
he bought a wool hat for himself ?
1 a pair of cotton cards for Jennie.
>m this email beginning, by indnsand
economy, they sncceeded in M:
Iding up a nice little competency, be
their own comfort in old age, and
te able from time to time as their mi
[dren married off to start them oat th<
h something ahead. I was at the
teral of Aunt Jennie, and have
er witnessed on any occasion signs ,
more genuine grief than Uncle _
itt manifested. Bat whither is my
i wandering? I am thinking of my
hood days.
ties Nancy K. Watt was the eldest TC
ghter of John Watt and Nancy
neaid) Watt, who must hare marl
abont the close of the eighteenth ,
he beginning of the nineteenth "
Lury, for she was born 20th No- tj?
iber, 1821. She was married to or
n Wr. Eabb, known aa Glazier 19G
b, Marsh 12, 1840. They lived
pily together in this county for eaE
rly thirty-two years, when in Jan- wo
r, 1872, they moved to Dae West, Sn]
teville county, for the purpose of J:
sating their children. Mr. Rabb
1 but a shert time after the move
died 26th February, 1S72. After
ieath, she carried oat successfully
r prearranged plan?, remaining- 4
I the children, except one, were ?
Inated from the college, then it-j
od back to old Fairfield in the JjUl
mer of 1877, She passed peacer
from the sorrows of earth to the
of btaven, as we hope and bci,
April 11, 1900. She leaves s*rag
her two listers, Mrs. Rebecca $

peculiar characteristics of the Watt
family was and is kindness and consideration
toward the poor, and toward
servant*, and this trait of char*
acter was well exemplified in our
friend of whom we write. In her, as
in her dear mother of precions memory,
was fulfilled the saying of the
Master, "I wa3 hungry and ye gave
me meat, I was thirsty and ye gave me
! drink, naked and ye clothed me, sick
and in prison lad ye came unto me."
