Mayor Tolly, of Anderson, is iu the
city, registered at tho Hotel Calhoun.
For a number of years Mr. Tolly has
been at the head of thatmunicipality.
He has made such an excellent chief
executive that the people recuse per
sistently to elect anybody eise. An
lerson is a growing, progressive little
.Hy, full of manufacturing industries,
employing hundreds of operatives.
That County contains a score or more
of big enterprises and the people are
making arrangements to erect several
more at an carly date. That section is
situated close to Greenville and Spar
tanburg Counties, and it, too, has
caught the cotton mill fever. Mr. Tolly
is just the man one would expect to see
at the head of a good, live town. He is
alive, up-to-date citizen himself, who
believes in keeping up with the proces
sion, and it is due to tho efforts of men
of his stamp that Anderson is right in
line at the present time in all the
branches of commercial and industrial
activity.-Charleston News and Cou
While on his way to his home in
Garvin last Saturday afternoon from
this city, Mr. David H. Green died
very suddenly. He was in bis buggy
in Company with his son-in-law, R. J.
Buchanan, and when passing the home
of Capt. John Eskew, about four miles
north ot the city, Mr. Green suddenly
threw back his head and passed away
without a moan or struggle and before
Mr. Buchanan could realize that any
thing was the matter with him. His
body was kindly cared for and that
night was carried to his home. He had
spent the greater portion of the day in
the city and was apparently in his
usual good health. It is supposed that
heart disease was the cause of his death,
though his family physician, Dr. Duck
worth, says he had never shown any
' symptoms of that disease. Mr. Green
was about 45 years of age, a most
worthy, upright citizen, and was most
highly esteemed by all of his friends,
who deeply sympathise with the sorely
bereaved wife and two children who
are left to cherish her memory. On
Sunday afternoon the remains were
buried in the Sandy Springs Church
