CHANGE IN BUSINESS.
John A. Littlepage recently sold
his interest in the .1. C. Boggs Mo
tor and Light company, here in
Lewisburg, to Ernest Watts, of
Lewisburg, and Mrs. John D. Puck
ett. Mr. Watts, who travels for
the Clifton Forge Grocery com
pany, will not be with the firm
in person for several .weeks. He
is well known io the people of
Greenbrier and needs no introduc
tion. lie ii; a son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. G. Walls, of Binchlands.
Mrs. I'uekcM is originally from
Virginia, but later from Beekley,
where -she, as Miss Virginia Warren,
held a position in the posl-oflice
for some time. While in Beekley
.she married John D. I'uckett. who
was connected with the ollice of
the Winding Gulf Collieries Co., j
and the W. M. Bittcnncnc 1. umber
Co. He later came to Greenbrier,
settling at Jhiincllc, where he held
the position as manager for the
Rainelle Lumber (>>., and was con
templating entering the firm of
which his widow is now a member,
but was taken ill and died after a
lingering illness. In his death
Greenbrier lost the prospect of a
most excellent citizen, because
John I'uckett li'ad been with us
long enough to know his honesty
and sincorety. Mrs. Puckett is a
lady of excellent business ability
as well as social qualities.
Mr. Littlepage, we understand,
has .purchased the mercantile busi
ness of II. C. Hogsett at Alderson,
where he will reside. Lewisburg
regrets the lose of Mr. and Mrs.
Littlepage and their son, Lawrence.
Litlcpagc and their son, Lawrence,

who have made a host of friends
during their residence in Lewis

firm, having charge of the clerical
work, which she is most capable
of handling.
