Dr. R. E. Mason Made Lecturer.
It is always a pleasure to us to learn
of the progress of our Coonee boys who
have located in other counties and other
States. Two years ago Dr. H. E. Mason
left Oconeo and located in Charlotte,
N. C., for tho praotioe of his profession.
Last year he was elected quiz-master in
tho North Carolina Medical College at
Charlotte. We now learn that, in addi
tion to this position, ho has recently
been eloctud as lecturer on therapeutics
in thc sante institution. After gradua
tion from a medical college and a con
siderable hospital service Dr. Mason re
turned to Oeouoe and entered tho prac
tico of his profession at Westminster, but
shortly afterward decided on Charlotte
as his choice for a permanent location.
His many friends hero and throughout
the county will learn with pleasure of
bis riso in the medical profession at
Charlotte. Dr. Mason is a son of Col.
and Mn. K. E. Mason, formerly of West
Warren Priestley Dead.
Last Thursday evening Warren Priest
ley, colored, of West Union, died at his
homo there after a lingering illness,
covering a period of six months or more.
Ile had been for a number of years
about 25 or ?50-tho leading barber in
Walhalla, ?md held tho respect of all the
wb.te people who knew him. He was
57 yoara Old. For dignity and politeness
of the old ante-bellum typo, Warren
Priestley had long been the great model
for tho colored men of this section. His
death, while not a surprise to those who
had known him, was the source of rogret
on all sidos. No colored man in tho
county was held in higher esteem.
