Death of Mai. Anderson.
The Williamston Nowsof last Friday
gave the following notice of the death
of Ma.}. George W. Anderson, which
will Liing sorrow to the hearts of many
of our l'endors, lor he was weit known
. rough out. this sectio!i and one of An
d'Tsou County's best eiti/ens:
AI liait'past five o'clock Wednesday
,<o-i.i.i.r :it his home in William
ston, Ma.j. Goo. W. Anderson breathed
his last. At the time of his death
Maj. Anderson was seventy-three years
of age, being born in IS- :
Though ho had been ill for ten
months and his death expected a I any
time, the news of Iiis demise wash
shock to the community.
Mnj. Anderson w:is b >ru ami raised
in LaurensCounty. thisStato. He was
religiously impressed while quite young
and connected himself with tho AL E.
Church, .South, in his boyhood days,
and lived a consistent member of thai
Church for over half a century, and a
faithful ami devoted steward for over
thirty years. lie served gallantly
through tho civil war, acting u good
part, of the time as courier for Gen.
For several years he loi lowed tho
mercantile business and gave his ut
il ttcnt inn partly to farming, being fair
ly SUCOCSU'ul ill I )i>t ll of these pursuits.
amassing by his good judgment ami
close application to business a sung
fortune, though often meeting witli
adversity ami disaster; was twice
burned out. The burnings would
hnv^? staggered a L. s determined man.
He was of a sympathetic nature, as
hundreds of poor people whom he be- j
friended can testify.
Ho will be sadly missed by his
Church, his community, and most of
all l>3r his loving family. He leaves to
mourn for him seven children, all
grown, anil an aged ami nfilleted wife.
To these the sympathies of many
friends go out.
The funeral exercises took place in
the Methodist Church late Thursday
afternoon, conducted by the pastor,
Rev. A. J. Cant hen, Jr., who came
from the annual conference in Colum
bia to perform the last sail riles over
the remains of one who for years had
been a pillar in his church and one. to
whom the. pastors looked for support
A Popular and Sui:;2s.sful Agent.
A recent issue of The'Prospect, pub
lished in Atlanta and Richmond, con
tains sketches, with their pictures, of
three of the most successful Suite
agents of the Mutual 'Benefit Life In
surance Company. One of these agents
is our genial and energetic townsman,
M. M. Mattisou, of whom the editor
speaks as follows:
"M. M. Mattisoii, the present State
agent for South Carolina, began with
the company as a solicitor under St.Vu
Agent .lotin C. Drewry of Raleigh, in
ItSW. From the first ho developed in
to a successful writer, and having such
a good company behind him ho found
bis position both pleasant and profit
able. Upon the retirement of Mr.
Drewry as State agent of South Caro
lina* to* assume the Statu agency of Vir
ginia. Mr. Maltis, :.'s promotion to that
position was natural and proper, as
his record shows him to be of all men
the right man in tho right place. He
has bis headquarters ar Anderson, and
dur ng his term of a little more than
two \ears as State agent has proven
Iiis ability not only to write life insur
ance, but to .show his agonis how to do
it. When he began with the company
in 1803 it had hi force in South Caro
lina not over $400.000 of insurance.
At the beginning of the present year
there was $fl,719,'lSl) of insurance in
force, while the new business for
will raise tho grand total to over 84,
000,000. This splendid record has been
made in a territory embracing not more
than two-thirds of tlio State, quite a
number of tho const counties being
prohibited territory. Mr. Mattisoii
can point with pride to a large per
centage of tho leading business men of
the Palmetto State who are satisfied
and persistent policy-holders in his
company, and no Stato agent has a
brighter outlook for the future. II?. is
a young mnn, as his portrait in this
paper shows, and in his personal ad
dress is r.ordial and democratic to a
marked degree, making him popular
with all who know him.
