the amount of the bill the au

price paid wb $50,000. We feel
like congratulating Mr. Wells
on his successful management
oi thih enterprise, which many
thought was a foolish under

complete financial ruin. The
result shows him to be a nun
of good business sense and in

passing notice. The deceased

one of the i most fearless sol
diers, always chaerful under the
most adverse circumstances.
Sergt. Bray served till January
1865, and was in all of the many
battles his regiment saw. - He
rendered valuable scout duty
at Chancelorville. At Gettys
burg he received a severe
wound irom a piece ot shell,
which, together with his ardu
ous service on the coast of
South Carolina and in the
swamps ot Florida, completely
broke down bis health and fi
nally resulted iu his death by
With; Mr. !,JBray' failing
health' came also a total loss oi
his property. iu a mercantile
enterprise entered into some
time in 1568. : lie leaves little

tion they may well be proud ol.

at Bethel Chapel, a few hun

which be was born.
