A. It. Broughton, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas Broughton of Gar
field died at Pollock, La., Tuesday
mgtitr ot lever. tie young man
left here about five weeks ago, and
tho news of his illness and death
came with a great shock to his agec
parents and relatives and friends.
The body was brought hero y ester
day evening by his brother-in-law
L. A. ATyatt,who was called to Lou
isiana Sunday by a telegram whicl
informed him of the serious illness
of Mr. Broughton. The passing of
one so young just in the f uTl dawn
of life is always attended by the
deepest regret, to those who pause
to think what achievements in lif
mysterious Providence has seen fit
to suspend, but when one is known
as the deceased, the sorrow is in
tensified. The Chronicle can pay
his memory no greater honor than
to say, in his death his lodge loses
one of its brightest members and
thecommunityoneof its most-promising
yoi.ng men. Personally, he
was most genial, and had many
friends who appreciated him for
his excellent traits of character and
high sense of honor. His death is
greatly deplored, and much sym
pathy is extended to his bereaved
parents and relatives. The burial
was at Bushing's Creek last night.
The funeral was under the auspices
of Postoak Camp No. -17,? W. O. W.,
of which Mr. Broughton wasa mem
ber, ltev. J. M. Pickens assisting.
The body was received here by the
members of the camp and escorted
to the cemetery at BubhingV Creek
where there was a Targe assem
blage to pay the last toki-n uf ic
sptct for the departed.
