A SAD, SAD DEATH.
One evening only about sixty days
ago we were receiving over the 'phone
a description of the marriage cere
mony of Miss Macie Ilartin to Mr.
Donald M. Campbell, both natives of
Ridgeway-the ecremony being per
fvrined there. Now we are called
np n to chronicle the sad death of the
bride of tbat occason. Mrs. Campbell
and Cr hLsband moved at once to
Sow-er, their future home. Very soon
afw: her marriage she was taken sick
an'd dzuth fin .lly came. The remains
were brought to Ridgeway and in
terred in the cemetery at that place on
Monday, Rev. JabLz Ferris officiating.
.e fineral was largely attended and
the c:mmnunity was deeply moved by
the ,ad occurrence.
There has been no greater shock to
the people of lI-at place in a great
The pall-bearers officiating were:
F. P. Hinnant, C. L. Wray, J. B.
Boliek, Joseph Coleman, Ollever Mc
Eachern, and R. M. Bolick.
Thus ends what was boied to be a
long and happy married life. The

WAS THE DOG MAD f
There has been considerable excite
neut in the southwctern section of the
town over the movements of a certain
small dog belonging t!> a iady of that
neighborhood. It appears that he went
to a neighbor's house, and not a.ved
by his insignificant statue, or the
asnive statue of other dogs in the
eihborhood, p~roceedled to devour
hem wiith a relish of hungry bea, te.
Ie war, however, escor ted f rom the
ouse by the aid of the broom stick,
nd at this juncture some one cried,
-Mad d.og I" The chief of police was
smmoned and a chase was comn
nenced. Th~e dlog could not be found

It is rumored that one gentleman
who started out with the policeman

ided himself with a cure for dog

irection in here the dog had benz, but

ow about his action-water is never
nterd by mad dogs..
The next thing that we hear of is
that while one-half the community is
frightened on ace >unt of this dog that
gentleman near by was feeding him
t the table with the hope that he
ight be mad and would bite all the
ogs and cats on his place so that he
ight have a valid excuse for exter
inating them. The owner of the
dog is doubtful about his being mad,
but has consented to the sentence, and
nless a respite comes we expect to be
called upon to detail the execution.

ent turns and crooks in the case and
promise the public full details as to the
fnal termination. However, sbould

ormation before our next issue, we
refer them to the chief of police, or
