get real satisfaction. Our mechanics are skilled in the
use of genuine Ford parts. Don't flirt with the just as
"good idea." When ready to re-tire stop at our Fisk

Death of Mr. B. B. Thompson.
Sunday about 5 o'clock Mr. B. B.
Thompson died of heart failure in
Smith's pond. He waded in the water
a considerable distance before he
began to swim, stepping off suddenly
in i.eep water. After going down he
never rose again. Several persons
who were swimming near him at the
time went to his rescue but when his
body was recovered just a few min
utes af ter it disappeared he was dead.
It is though that he died of heart
failure, rather than drowning, as no
water was found in his lungs. His
sudden death was quite a shock to all
present and especially to his wife and
several children who were near him
as he waded in the water. In fact,
his wife and others urged him to
keep out of the pond but he would
not heed their warnings.
Mr. Thompson came to Edgefield
several yeras ago and has 'been for
some time employed as machinist by
the Edgefield Lumber Company. His
body was carried to Shelby, N. C.,
Monday night for interment.
