McClain, of that place; aud on Suuday, we were shocked to learn of his death, which occurred last Saturday evening, at the age ot 85 years, 0 months and .'$ days The deceased was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel 11. McClain, and spent his youth ou his fath er's farm. About a dozen years ago, he was uuited in marriage with Miss Jennie, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. (J. Cunningham. Iu IHSlli, ho embarked iu the mer cantile business atNew Grenada, and with the incoming of McKiu ley's administration, received the apiM)intmeut of pstmastor at that place, which position lie held at the time of his death. In Feb ruary of last year, he had the misfortune to lose his store by fire. Soon after this, he went to Robertsdale and remained iu a store there until a few weeks ago, when he left with view to going into the coal mines long enough to become acquainted with the practical workings of the busi ness, when he expected to com plete u course in theoretical miu iug and engineering. Just before leaving the store, he slightly wounded a linger from a sharp nail which protrud ed from a nail keg. In about a week, this, at tirst, a seemingly unimportant scratch, began to be painful, his hand aud arm became swollen, and it became apparent to his physician that blood poison had developed. Every tiling was done human skill coulddevise, but death ended the dreadful suffer ing on last Saturday evening as before stated. The deceased, several years ago, found peace iu Christ, and connected himself with the M. E. church, since which time he has been faithful to the church of his choice; and, as the dark days of suffering came upon him, and his friends stood by with aching hearts, his face bore a radiance such as can come only to those whose souls are tilled with the precious hope of t blissful eter nity. His remains were laid tenderly to rest in the cemetery at the Bethel church, New Grenada, on Monday, followed thither by a very largo number of sorrowing friends.
