FIND MARBLE SLAB
USED AS TOMBSTONE
In the present age stone and marble
are being put to many uses. At present
perhaps the most common use to which
a marble slab is put is that for a tomb
stone or for trimmings on a fireplace.
The case of a stone being used for both
purposes is a rare combination but such
a rase exists in Columbia.
In an old house which used to stand a:
the corner of Hinkson avenue and Paris
road there used to be a fire-place which
had a large marble slab for a hearth
stone. The stone had always been a
source of curiosity to the family who
lived there at the time. Finally when the
house was torn down to make way for a
more modern structure the old slab was
taken from the resting place where it had
lain for a long period of ears. It was
turned over and the following inscription
was found to have been carved on the
: John r. Keiter

In the 4&lh fear of his age.
Just how the slab came to be -vied for
a hearthstone in that house no one ever
knew. The man to whom the stone had
been erected as a tombstone had no con
nection whatever with the owner of the
hoac frcm vbich it was taken.
