By a very regretable oversight we did not chronicle the death of our good friend, Prof. L. B Hutch inson, in the last issue of The Itemizer, who died at the home of Son, Mr. Charley Hutchinson, in Vaiden, on Sept. 14th. He was one of the counties best citizens, and was well known throughout the county—esteemed, loved and respected by those who knew him. For thirty-five years he was conspicuous in the educational circles, standing high in his chosen profession as educator. But above all he was conspicuous for attend ing exclusively to his own busi ness and letting other peoples’ alone—for his unostentaciouschar acter. Withal, he was a most clever and congenial gentleman and strong friend. He was a brave Conderate sol dier, and earnestly entered the service of his country in the cause he conceived to be right. Return ing home his service was devoted to the civil good of his country. The many friends of the family will learn with regret that Mrs. George Woods is seriously ill with typhoid fever.
