: THE YBAR 1910 :
BY RONDO I
The year of 1910 has pissed out,
one more year having been added
to the 20th century. The history of
1910 has been recorded upon the
chronicles of time. Its evenm And
destinies have been told, its joy?
and comforts have been realized;
its advertitiee, misfortunes and bit
terness of life have been felt. Year
after year how swiftly they seem to
pass. By the continued ticking oi
our clocks we hear the pulse of time
beating life and its events away.
in loolutj" back over 1010 we see
its gains and achievements, its
wrecks and ruins. Hut our object
in this article, is to take note of the
deaths that have occurcd in our lit
tie town during iqio. ivmic we
have been engaged in the busy,
bustling scenes of life we have been
unconscious of how many of our
friends aud neighbors have passed
from the active scenes of life and
are missing from our midst. Wc
understand from our Undertakers
that during the year 1910, twenty
five white people and thirteen color
ed people have died within the cor
porate limits of Greenville, making
a total of thirty eight persons who
hailed the dawn of the year 1910,
but were missing at the dawn of 1 9 1 1 .
Some died in the spring of life, some
in its summer bluom, others during.
ts autumnal decline.
Vc shall onlytake note of a
family that has nearly become ex
tinct in Greenville, that of 'J:-V.
Ragon, who was born at Bowling
Green, Warren county, in 1824,
and came to Greenville with his
family in 1S68, forty-two years ago,
and cast his destiny with the people
of Greenville. He secured a good
and comfortable home in which he
spent the remainder of his days.
His family consisted of a wife, four
daughters-and one sob. He was a
saddler by trade, to which business
he devoted all his energies, hie time
and talent; he was industrious and
did all that he could for the welfare
and comfort of his family; he was a
quiet, discreet Christian and a re
spectable citizeft; he; was a devoted
member of the laptis-t ckurch astd
Wc lived a neighbor to him and

Judge W. H. Yost and Mr. J. A.
Jonson,-of Madisonvillc, were here
one or two days last week on busi
ness. "The Passing Show," which ap
pealed at the opera house on the
evening of December a 8, pleased a
fair sized audience.
Orders for cut flowers will receive
the prompt attention of Miss Lena
Mr. and Mrs. Scott Dexter have
the sympathy of their many friends
in the loss of their first-barn, a girl,
which came to them yesterday morn
ing, but was born dead. Mrs. Dex
ter is getting along very nicely.
Mr. Roy Roark and sister, Miss
Hallie, left Tuesday for New Mexico
where they expect to locate. They
go for the benefits of the climate,
and their many friends hope they
may receive the greatest benefits.
Leslie Hale has provided equip
ment and is serving all sorts of hot
drinks now at his fountain.
A doctor, unmarried, (not neces
sarily in town) was calling on a lady
friend a day or so before Christmas,
nod remarked "I have been out
sleighing today." The girl In ques
tion, who is quick witted and does
not hesitate to remark whatever
comes into her mind, replied "Why,
doctor, I thought you did that most
very day." There is an estrange-
forlment that has lasted up to the pres
ent, and it may result in a perma
nent rupture of what promised to be
a serious friendship.
Orien L. Roark buys, sells, rents, i
repairs typewriters, carries supplies '
f all kinds, and solicits trade in I
family for twenty year, he loved
his family and home, he did alt he
could to make i; happy and com
fort able. He and his family seemed
to enjoy life; they were generous
find kind. We knew then) when they
were all within the bloom and vigor
of health, but as years came apd
went, aud after the lapse of twenty
five years, death entered the home
Intend and one by -one of the family
began to wither, to pipe and die;Na
mother, three daughters, one sort
and a grandson, all went down in
death, leaving, the aged father and
bis oldest daughter, the only repre
sentative of the Ragon family. The
old man, now past his four score
years, the vitality of bis Ijfc fast rc
ceding, weakened by ,thc toils t)f
time and the weight of years, pil
lowed his weary head upon the
bosom of the affections, lore and
care of his only living offspring,
whose kindness and care was de
roted to the giving him all the at
tention within her power for his
comfort and ease. Gradually be
pined away, and after he had reach
ed his four score years aud six
breathed out his long and eventful
life in November, 1910, leaving a
lonely daughter to mouin her loss.
As we stood and saw the pallbearers
carrying hi in from' his" home, along
the way he bad come -and, gone
thousands of times in life, to meet
and greet those that he loved, tears
of sympathy fell from our eyes when
wc saw the only remainingrdaughtcr,
with a broken and bleeding'1 heart
following 'the lifeless ' body of her
father and the best friend-she ever
had; she followed him to hisde'stiny
iu time, to where he was gathered to
his family that had precccded him;
she stood and saw him covered up
from the sight of the living and then
returned to her desolate and forsaken
home. All of its charms had flown
a home no longer sweet and dear,
but sid. She determined to leave
it and let it' pass intd the hands of
other names and she would seek
protection and comfort wlh relatives
elsewhere. So in Greenville the
Ragon home will cease to be, and
