DEATH OF MB. JOHN L. BEAUD.1
At his residence near 1 _rnassu.., Mr.
Jjhn Liuk Beard died, aged 87 ytar.., 5
ra nths and 13 days. He had been in
delicate health for moro than fo r yoars
aud th .ugh a great sufferer he boreal]
with Christian submission. H- was
born on IVakcd Cr.ek in this count**,
near old Salem church, on N veaib. r
27tli, 1810, and died May 10.h, 1898.
His father, Peter Beard, emigrated to
Indiana wilh his lamily, consisting of
o_e son and seven daughters, over 50
years ago, leaving only the (subject of
this sketch in this State.
Mr. BearJ ' married Mis* Martha M.
Shields, sister of Col. J. C. Shields of
Rockbridge county. The Wtddiog
took place in Lexington in tbe old
Sloan Tavern. Eighteen years of his
life were spent in Middlebrook.
He was a cabinetmaker by trado and
his work waa noted for its excellency
and durability. He was known as an
honest, upright, Christian gentleman;
He had been a member of the Metho?
dist church since thojyear of 1836, and
his homo was always open to preachers
of tho Gospel of all denominations.
Ho loved children and organized Sun?
day schools wborever he could, He
was a supurintendent of Sabbath
schools for more than thirty years.
All that loving hands could do was
done, but of no avail. His neighbors
were kind in their ministrations in his
last painful months of suflering, and
untiring in their efforts to do a'l they
could for his relief.
He was preceded to tho grave by
his son Lieut. John T, S, Beard, a vol?
unteer in the lato war, who died at
Camp Lee near Richmond, Va., 1863,
and by his son Samuel O. Beard, who
died Nov. 15, 1871, and by his wife,
Martha af. Shields Beard, who died
Dec. 20th, 1883, also by his son, J.
Shields Beard, who died Dec. 2ad,
1892, and by Irs brother, Wm. and
three sisters who lived in Indiana.
His funeral was preached by Rev. C.
S. M. See, pastor of Union church, as?
sisted by Rev. Mr. Ringer of the Meth?
odist church. . Many beautiful floral
tributes were laid on the casket by
'Ihe choir song Rock of Ago?, Josus
Lover of My Soul, and How Firm a
Foundation, which last was an especial
favorite with tho deceased. The ser?
vices weie concluded at the gravo by
tho choir singing, 'The Home of the
Soul," a hymn dearly loved by this
sainted servant of Christ. The precious
dust now roats in Union comotery near
thc side of his beloved wife and Eon
Samuel, all awaiting a blossed im?
He leaves throa sons and fl. o daugh?
ters, three grandchildren and two
great grandchildren to mourn the
loss of one of tho most affectionate of
parents. Wc would say, '-Precious in
tho Bight of tho Lord is the death of
All his children now living were with
him to tho end, oxcept his sod, Wm. S.
Beard of Rockbridge, who could not
visit him, owing to ill-health, and who
was a soldier in tho late war.?Staun?

HW, Now for business. Our sal? for last
April MMtdtd those for April 1,96 over
seven hundred dollars. Why l_ lt that our
business ls increasing? Is lt because we
keep an inferior lot of goods, or ls it because
we charge more than ether merchants?
Hardly, quite hardly! If we had not extra
value we couldn't Increase business. If other
people had 4 J cent ginghams we would not
have sold over 3,000 yards In three weeks.
The same can bo said of Ave cent, yord wide
t.lta_j_td cotton entirely frea of dressing,
and ladles' collars and suffs at 5 cents each
or six for 23 cents. Plant bed cloth good
juallty at 2J <?its yard; Men's handsome
well finished shoes at $1.00 a pair;
liult.??' styli-h shoes at $1.00 a pair, very
large loco curtains at 50 cents each. Fifteen
bolts of handsome cuitalu material at 10, l'.J,
15, 20 and 25 ceuta a yard and curtain scrim
at 5 cents, all of these curtain gooc's art
white aud some ot them show hondsomt
embroidery Ueat's shirts at 25, 50, 75 cents
and tl.00. Our 50 cent negligee shirts are
worth 75 cents In any store. Come and
Inspect them, and when here ask to see
our hats, socks, collars and cuffs, hand?
kerchiefs, drawers, cravats etc. etc. Also
5, 10 and 15 cent vests and undershirts.
We aro now selling all wool drees goods at
the price that cotton and wool will be worth
next fall. We have some especially good
bargains In dress goods, woolens, satins, silks,
grenadines etc. Have juet received threes,
bolts ot black China and flgur. .1 silk dom
45 to 75 cents yard, and we have a beautiful
line of fancy silk for waists from 35 cents to
f 1.00 a yard. We are still selling real good
aoffes, green or roosted, at 10 cents a round.
It ls conceded, we believe, that we sell
twice os many groceries as auy store In town.
This is because we i-oy especial attention to
this department and cany an Imuico. e stock
of the most choice goods we caa get.
We now have the Hoyal hams at lt| ceuts,
the Westphalia at 12^ conts, the Monunieutal
at 12$ cents, the K. A. Ferris k Co. at 15
cents, the Country hams at different prices.
