William S. Craig
DROPPED DEAD SATURDAY.
Full of Life He Attended the Re-union.
Laet 3aturday night the town of
Pickens was thrown into a tremor of
excitement when the news was car
ried from one to another of our awed
citizens that William Spencer Craig
had just dropped dead on the street
of the town.
Mr. Craig, who was a gallant
Johnny Reb, came ',o Pickens, Sat
urday, to .attend the Re-union exer
cises, and was apparently in the best
of health. Many of his ftiends re
marked that day how well he lodked.
He had not been here befot e in six
years and met many friends and was
with them all day, jolly, happy and
full of fun. Late down in the after
.noon he was walking in the western
part of tuwn and of a sudden sank
to the ground, and by the time aid
reached him he was dead. The
physicianA pronounced fthe malady
heart failure, and wo understand that
ho was subject to such attacks. M r.
Craig was a nian of generous im
pulses and never fort ot the 'hosipita
ble ways of the pioneer. .The sting
er, even th.,ntgl a beggar, never failed
to find food and shter f- hie hsought
it at his hands, and he wasi t hiomuc

W. G. Lewis Jr.
Within our quiet nest at home,
We have a little son;
Five smiling days have passed away
Since his young life be_un.
Five smiling days: brief, happy timel
So fleet have moved the hours
So high our steps-wev'e only seemed
To tread among the flowers.
Thus speak Mr. and Mrs. W. G.
Lewis. The cause of the above is
the orrival 9f a tea pouod boy that
knocked at their homne last Sunday
the 2d instant, and asked for admit
tence, which was gladly given. Dr.
Webb says it is a "bald-headed chip
off the old block."
