Resignation ci Air. Keys.
Mr. Robert L. Keys has tendered his
resignation as agent of the .Southern
ExprcHH Company in this city, to take
effect on April lat. Mr. Key? lins been
the representative of the Kxpress Com
pany in thia city ever since tho railroad
agent at the depot was relieved of the
work and tho ellice moved uptown
about twenty-one years ago-and we
venture tho assertion that the Com
pany has never had in its service a
more efficient, zealous or accommodat
ing agent. During his long term of
service he was absent from his oftice
only ono day on account of sickness,
and only took two short trips away
from home. Mr. Keys is a most de
voted confederate veteran, and has a
wide circle of friends throughout this
section who will join us in wishing
him much succesB in whatever busi
ness be may engage in the future.

Confederate Army, Orr's Reg., Co. D,
at tho age of SO and fought through
the war till tho Southern cause went
down in defeat at Appomattox C. H.

true to tho principles of tho South as
the needle to the pole.
Un May 7, 1878, he was united in

Eleven children-six girls and live
boys-came to bless their union. Two

agea of 84 years each, having been
married 68 years.. and raised eleven
childi on, John being their fifth child.
