APRIL 1, 1910.


(Old Joe)

It is with sadness we note the death of Mr. G. W. Slaton.  Death came at the break of day and took the affectionate husband, kind and loving father and friend to all.  His good deeds were counted by the score.  He was a Confederate soldier and his remains were laid to rest with the honors of the Confederate soldiers.  He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his death.  We extend to the bereaved ones our sympathy.

Mrs. J. J. Handley had the misfortune to fall down some steps recently but was not seriously hurt, but was considerably bruised.
