Anderson has lost another good and
worthy young citizen in the death of
Rutledge L. < ??horne, which occurred
at Ins homo iu this city last Friday
afternoon, after a long and painful
illness with that ever fatal disease,
consumption. He passed away peace
fully and free from pain, and though
his loved ones and intimate friends
were prepared for tho news of his
death, the actual event brought sorrow
and grief to a once happy home.
Mr. Osborne was the third son of the
late Wm. M. Osborne, and was in tho
iJGthyearof hi? age. At the age of 10
years he began his business career as a
salesman in the store of Hill & Ligon
and later accepted a position with tho
S. Weekley Company, and ronnined
in that house during all tho subseqent
changes in tue firm down to the present
linn of Osborne &: Pearson, with whom

four years ago but ho was not forced
to give up work until a few months
In November, I8i)l, he married Miss
Lou Gaillard, who, with three litttle
children, survives him. Their married
life was a most happy one, anti no
where- will he be more missed than
around his own hearthstone.
Ill his boyhood the deceased gave
his heart to the Saviour and joined tho
Methodist Church, and throughout his
life was a most devoted and exemplary
Mr. ( toborno had mauy friends and
no enemies. He lilied all tho respon
sible duties of lifo well, and his genial,
social manner, kindness of heart and
sense of justico endeared him to all
with whom became in contact. His
fortitude in illness was marked by
resignation to tho Divino will, and
while the sorrowing widow and broth
ers and sisters aro encompassed with
the weight of their loss, they have tho
consolation of knowing that ho is
now resting with tho Saviour whom
ho served so faithfully in this life.
