Death of .Ur. Floyd Davis.
Our town was deeply saddened
on Monday morning by the an
nouncement of the death of Floyd
Davis, ot his home iu Connells
ville, Pa. His Edgefieid friends
did not. even know that he had
been ill. The dispatch announc
ing his death wae sent?n Sunday
afternoon and was received by
Ur. J. G. Tompkius Monday
morning, but did not give the
time or the cause of death. Up to
this writing on Tuesday no fuller
information bas been received.
The message stated that the iu
terment would tak place this af
ternoon in Conuellsville.
Mr. Davis was the third son of
Mr. John B. Davis. Soon after
completing a busiue-ss C'Uirso at
college several year3 ago, he joiu
ed Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Tompkins,
the lattpr being bis sister, in Gon
nell8viile, Pa., where he accepted
a responsible positon with the
Pennsylvania railroad. Last July
Mr. Davis married Miss Lucy Orr
Lowrfj, of Couuellsviile, and came
to Edgefieid to spend several
weeks. Hs appeared then to be so
strrwg and robust that bis Edge
field friends can not realize tb ni
death has claimed him. Besides
his si*tei, Mrs. Frauk Tompkius.
Floyd's youugest brother, Henry,
aleo resides in Coui.ellsville.
The Advertiser extend a sin
cerest sympathy to the bereaved
young wife, whom many people
in Edgefieid learned to love l^s'
summer, and to the father, sis'er?
and brothers of ' our departed

Should Not Take Offense.
Some persons are inclined to
take offense at receiving a state
ment from a newspaper, 1 hie
should not be the case, and would
not be' if those who rocjive the
statements would take a business
like view of the matter. When a
merchant feas a number of ac
counts standing on his books it is
but rif?ht and -proper for him to
mail statements to the pnrsons
owing the accounts. If a farmer
had a number of persons over the
county owiog him for urjduco
that he had sold theda it would
be rifchf'aud proper for him to
nuil statements to those who
owed him. Then, it <is just as
rraBonable for a newspaper to oc
casionally mail statements to per
sons in arrears for subscription.
A short time ago we mailed an
bid and much esteemed subscri
ber a etatemeDt and be promptly
remitted a money order ?D pay
ment of t'je amount due. And so
much have we been impressed
with the admirable spirit arid
toi.e of his letter that we publish
it, leaving off the addr-ss:

Instead of taking offense, those
who receive statements from a
newspaper should take a business
like view of ibo matter, and re
ceive them in the same commen
dable spirit that the writer of the
forpgoing letter manifested.
