After a lingering illness, W. C.
Green died Friday afternoon about
5 o'clock at his home in West Clin

Sunday afternoon was conducted by
Rev. G. W. Wilson and the inter

Mrs. Sank Roper died Friday
night, of pneumonia, at her home
near Gore school house. She was
about 55 years old and is survived
by her husband, one son, Lee Roper,
and one daughter, Mrs. Bud Gas
kins, of Crutchfield. The burial
look place Saturday at Harmony.
We are led to believe from what
we can learn that our farmers are
making a mistake in letting all the
home-grown cotton seed be shipped
south. Most of the cotton grown
here is of an early maturing variety
brought here after a careful study of
local conditions. When planting
season comes again, our planters are
going to be compelled to take just
any old seed they can get. Wouldn't
it be wise to reserve a supply of the
ea;ly maturing variety before it is
all shipped out? But, remember
the mills and gins will not save it for
you they are selling to ,the man
who wants seed now, consequently.
It is being shipped to Mississippi
about as fast as It comes in, selling
there at $4 more on tne ton than is
being charged our local planters,
which is also worthy of consideration.
John Steele Dillon.
It is with profound sorrow that we
respond to the Juty of chronicling
the death of one of the best and
maallest young men we ever knew
John Steele Dillon. Death untimely
and unexpected, came Friday morn
ing, at 5 30, and wafted his soul
beyond the borne of earthly sorrow.
Erysipelas was the cause of his
death and, although ,he had been
confined to his bed for a week, his
friends entertained no grave appre-
nennon until umriuay, when he
gradually grew worse until the end
Mr. Dillon was the only son of
Thomas Dillon, Jr our city mar
shal, and was just at the zenith of
his usefulness and manhood. He
was born in this city, June 25th,
1877, reared and educated here.
His school course was completed at
Louiiville, where he graduated
from Bryant & Stratton Business
College. Relurnine he started on his
busineis career. He has always
been active in both business and
social circles, where he wrought just
popularity. For six years, he had
been in the employ of the Richmond
& uonu Cottonseed Oil Mills, and
managed successfully the Hickman
branch of this big concern. In a
sense, he grew up with the business
and years ago the firm recognized
in him rare ability and sterling
worth. At the age of 25, he was
united in marriage to Miss Jessie
Isler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.
Mr. Dillon was not affiliated with
any church ; his ideals of religion
were broader than the embodiment
of rituals, but in his every walk in
life he was a model of that true re
ligion that knows no vaunting. He
was a member of only one secret
order The Red Men.
The funeral services were held
at the Isler residence, at 3 o'clock
Saturday afternoon, conducted by
Rev. C. L. Price, of Fulton. The
large attendance ot sorrowing friends
and relatives attested most emphati
cally the high esteem in which he
was held. The floral tribute was
one ot the most maenlucient ever
seen in this city on a like occasion.
At 4 o'clock the remains were inter
red at the city cemetery, where as a
last Icving tribute, he sleeps beneath
wilderness of flowers.
No young mm in Fulton county
or Slate was ever held in higher
esteem or commanded the respect
and confidence ot his entire range of
acquaintance than did John Steele
Dillon. He was a loving and obedi
ent son ; a true and devoted husband ;
a progressive and peaceful citizen ;
and left behind a noble example of
brave, gentle and ambitious young
manhood. He was a man with the
happy faculty of tying friends to
him with threads of steel, and
while he did not court the world,
yet wheie he fixed his friendship it
was true and lasting.
The heart-broken father and wife
have the sincere sympathy of the
entire community in the loss of their
treasure. He was truly a model
