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

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

to the civil good of his country.
The many friends of the family
will learn with regret that Mrs.
