A good man and his estimable
daughter, Mrs. Robertson,
sold their beautiful home and
farm near our town, a few days
ago to Mr. Otha Estes, of East
Fork section for forty five hun
dred dollars. Uncle Charlie and
his daughter have not decided
where they will locate. Owing to
the old age of Uncle Charlie and
the bad health of .his daughter,
they decided to sell their home.
No better people, as we all know
ever lived in our town. The ex
ample of their lives will be a
living monument for the people
in this community. As they de
cided te sell their home, we are
all glad that they turned it over
to Mr. Estes and his good fam
ily. We certainly are glad to
have these good people in our
community. We are sure they
will come near filling the places
of Uncle Charlie and his daugh
ter as could be.

found this work to be a great
help to this community in a fi

money into the hands of a num -berof
our people, who really
needed it for their labor.
