To say ) any friend "Hle is dead"
alwav brings sorrow to;the hearts o.Z
our citizens. but when a strong. young,
: brave life like Richard Chalmers Lea

the Great Beyond the community
It was indeed a shock to the entire
town yesterday to learn that Chal
mers Leavell died at ten o'clock the
night befor. Sunday night. at the
home of his parents. Mr. and Mrs. R.
Y. Leavell, in Boundary street, after
a illness of one week of pneumo-.ia.
Rith*d Chaimiers Leavell was
born on October 3rd, 1877, and had
spent almost his entire life in New
<berry. The funeral services will take
place at Rosemont cemetery this af
ternoon, Tuesday, at 4.30 o'clock.
He was the second of the three liv
ing children of Mr. and Mrs. Leavell,
and was a young man of fine charac
ter, high ideals, and noble purpose in
life. Consistent in all his relations
in life he was loved and honored by
those who knew him best. The gener

who did not know him intimately is
that he was a most worthy and ex
eellent young man, and one that the
ommunity could least afford to lose,
epresenting as he did in every phase
of his young- life the highest type of

Mr. Leavell was a consistent mem

the Red Men, and. a devoted member
of the Baptist chureh. He was a part
