has been here pretty regularly as
agent of the New York Mutual
Life Insurance company. After
some three days of illness he died
at Wise's hotel last Sunday night
of pneumonia. His remains werf
sent to his home in Hampton
county last Monday.
A telegriphic message to rela
tives in Prosperity annou'nced the
critical illness of Miss Anna Bo
land, of Little Mountain.
It is now known that the Rev.
G. R. Shaffer, who has been on
this circuit for t wo years, will leave
us and go to Whitmire. Mr Shaffer
has a warm place in the affections
of our people and has won their
entire confidence by his consistent
walk and conversation among us.
We have learned to know him and
of course hate to give him up. Mr.
Shaffer has a peculiarly interesting
family. The Rev J. K. McCain
will take Mr. Shaffer's place and to
him we turn with greetings.
