Death of a Popular Young CKizen.
It is our sad duty this week to chroi
ide the death of that clever and pop?
lar young citizen. Major A. Dea
which occurred at tho Riverside Infi
mary in Charleston on Wednesdi
evening, 22nd inst. On the day pr
oeding he left this city, in compai
with his wife and Dr. Gray, for Cha
leatonr to bo treated for appendloltl
The operation waa performed th
night vt. the Infirmary, but it waa t<
late to accomplish any good, as Infini
marlon ot the appendix had airest
set in. This condition had not ovi
been suspected, os he had no sy mptoi
of the disease until a short time as
and was up and able to attend to bm
ness until sunday night preceding 1
going to Charleston. The annou?c
ment of his death was, therefore,
great shock to his legion of fri?n
and relatives, many of whom not ha
ing heard of his illness..
Mr. Dean was a son of Robert
Dean, of this County, and would hs
celebrated his 85th birthday on t
31st of August next. On Feb. 10, IS
ho married Miss Stella E. Smith,
daughter of Cant. W. G. Smith,
this city, who, with one son 10 years
age, survives him. He remained
his father's plantation during his b<
hood and attended the neighborhc
Behool. Later he came to this c
and attended the Patrick Military I
atitute, from which he graduated,
then began his business career ai
salesman for the late firm of McCu
& Cathcart, and later organized 1
firm of Dean, Geer & Moore, wh
continued until he purchased the
teronis of hi? partners. In his indi
dual capacity he continued buBin
till 1804, when he formed a partn
ship with Thos. A. Ratliffe. nuder
firm namo of Dean Sc Ratliffe, wh
continued till his death. He wat
charter member o?'?hiquoia JLod
Knights of Pythias,, and of Will
Camp, Woodmen of the World, i
had he lived another week would hi
been a member of Hiram Lodge, A.
Mr. Dean was u devoted and act
member of the Baptist Church, hav:
joined the Cross Rondo Church at
age of 13 yea.?. When he came
this ?ity he transferred his merni
ship to the First Baptist Chnrch, i
at the time of his death was a dea
of that Church. His life waa thal
an exemplary Christian, and he die
triumphant death. As he lay OL.
last bed an*, just before the final si
Doona came, being fully conscious
hts condition, he said to those aroi
hi ? "Hinder me not; 1 am not afi
to die. I am passing over the rive
tee the lightning's flash on the ot
shore, I see the gates of Heaven o
and my Saviour is coming to meet
with upraised arms. Come nea
Lord; not that I am worthy bnt by *]

M". D6an was not a man to cc
outille favor. He never cared for
ipplanse of the world, but his higt
ambition in things temporal was
ne rit Ute love o' his family and
Snfldenoe of his friends. That be i
alight of his home and never A
ate* a confidence shows how effect!
y he lived np to his lite standard,
