E. P. McCravey Hit By Train
E. P. McCravey, former rnem
ber of the state legislature from
Pickens county and prominent
citizen of Easley, narrowly es
caped death at the Easley depot
Thursday morning when he
was struck and knocked from
the railroad track by south
bound passenger train No. 29.
He sustained several small cuts
and bruises on various parts of
his body, caused by the coarse
gravel on which he fell, and
three toes on his left foot were
badly mashed by the engine
wheels. The wounds received
by the accident were immedi
ately attended to by Drs. C. N.
Wyatt and1 H. E. Russel. While
the injuries are painful they are
not considered serious.
M r. MeCravey was crossing the
track when hit. Other trains in
the yard were making so much
noise he did not hear the incon
ing train and the view of the
main track was also cut off by
trains in the yard.
Many people witnessed the ac
cident and all thought sure Mr.
McCravey had been killed. His
escape from death is anost ni
raculous and his many friends
in the county are glad indeed
that his injuries are no w8orse.

She wams the oldest daughter of

the Peters Creek section: was
b)orn Au .nst 5, 1898. and dlied
August 1, 1915.
Though her' life hereP wasi
short vet she had by noble qual

(friends who monrn her going
away from them. For nearly
five years she was a mnember of

Deith of Miss Lucy Garvin
Sorrow came into the hearts
of Central and the surrounding
community when it was an
nounced that Miss Lucy Garyin
was (lead. On Monday, July
26, just at the setting of the sun,
her spirit took its flight. For
several months her health had
been failing, but about a week
before her death she was taken
critically ill and all that skilled
physicians and loving care could
give availed nothing. Death
came as a relief to her suffer
ings, but brought bitter pain
and sorrow to the ones left be
hind. Hers was a beautiful life,
filled with love and service to
the home, the ,church and
friends. Gentle, modest, refined
and unselfish she endeared her
self to all who knew her, but it
was in the home and to those
who knew her best that her
li-ht shone brightest. She pos
sessed to a marked degree that
"Charity that thinketh no evil,"
and never criticised the faults
of others but sought to find the
good in all. In the likeness of
His spirit she lived on earth,
and we feel she is only translat
ed to His presence. Her funeral
was conducted at Mt. Zion
church the (lay following her
death, by her pastor, Rev. J. C,
Bailey of the Presbyterian
church assisted by Rev. Eizie
Myer- of the Methodist church,
the interment follo ving in the
cemetery of that church.
She leaves, to mourn her
death, her mother, Mrs. Etta
Garvin, three sisters, Mrs. J, .'
Thode, Mrs. W. J. Werner,
Mrs. D. P. Montgomery, and
a brother J. B. Garvin )esides
hosts of relatives and friends.
The heartfelt symnathy of all
goes out to the family and espe
cially to the immediate home
