He was a consistent member of the Primi tive Baptist Church for more than 50 years, a greater part of which time was a deacon. He loved his church and was a faithful atten dant at all its services, a staunch advocate of its doctrine and ne ver lost an oppontunity to ad monish the wayward or to en courage the faint hearted his motto being prepare for eternity for time is but a span to connect us with the everlasting beyond. He was in the Thirty-sixth N. C. Regiment during the civil war and loved the cause of the south. In politics he was an uncompro mising Democrat, because he be- lived democracy right. About 14 years ago he fell from a load of feed and dislocated one of liis hips which caused him to be un able to walk without assistance the rest of his life. During this time he suffered much but bore it all with patience. On July 23rd at 2:30 o’clock at the age of 82 he passed vale sorrow and joined his life com of panin in that better land.

July 25th, 1910. W, P. Ireland, Hico Milling Co., City. 3ai Sir:—I am writing you this letter for the reason that belicjve in giving credit where credit is due. I like good bread and have been accustomed to it all my life, with the possible exception v/hen I was boarding away from home before ray marriage. Since I have been manied my only trouble about bread is to provide enough of it. In order to have good bread one must good flour, of course, and my vvife is very particular abouit stiklng to a brand that she has found to be satisfac tory and for this reason she came very: near countermanding an or der i iiad given for a small sack of flijiar for a trial after being told by Grover Moore that he was out of the brand we had been buying which is a well know flour ground at Danville, Va. Well, the Bmall sack came and when the l:)iscuits from it were on the tabhs Sunday morning we all de cided that the flour was superior to any we havehad in long time. It is wiiite, light and tastes good, and there and then it occurred to me to write you complimenting you upon the product of youi’ new mill. The only reason I can see for any one sending any money away from here for flour is that you might not be able to supply the deinand. The other mills in the vieinity may make as good but am sorry to say we havn’t tried them lately. W e are all too ready to patro nize the fellow away from home too the detriment of our friends and neighbors, and in as much as a steady flow of money is go ing f3“om this State to Virginia for another well known commo dity it seems well enough to get our flour and anything else we have to buy from our home peo ple if we can get it feood. li" you can use this letter which is v?ritten without your know ledge and consent to further your business in any way I hope you will do so and you can count upoa as as customers as long as your sjoods are up to standard. Was about to forget to mention that siter eating breakfast Sun day morning I was interested endiigh to go to f h e pantry to learn the brand of which I found to be “HiCO Best.” Vvitli good wishes, I am. Your friend. Banks E. Teague. Big Bay at Baynes Store. Th^s Masons held their annual picriie at Baynes Store yesterday. The; occasion was attended by a larg:e crowd.

ElfVEN je NIUD Gim Explodes at Fort Monroe i¥ith Disastrous Results. Fortress Monroe, Va., July —Eleven men of the coast artill ery are dead tonight as the result of the_ blowing oiit of av bre^h block in one or the big guns with which the fort was engaged in target practice. A half dozen others are in the post hospital^ one of whom may die. The exr act cause of the explosion is not yet definitely determined, al though a board of inquiry Was appointed immediately Jafter the disaster by orders froni the war department at Washington. The explosion took place it Biat- tery De Russy ; No, 1 gun doing the damage. The gun was in; charge of Capt. Janies Prentice, who had with him Lieut. G«orge R Hawes, Jr., and George L. Vau Deusen. Lieutenant Hawes had gone forward from the breech to examine the range wheel when the charge was exploded! He was thrown down and moinent- arily stunned, but otherwise was uninjured. In the thick> heavy smoke the scene was almost indescriable. Ei;g:ht men were killed ouitright, their bodies lying scatter^jd around the emplacement. , Under the pall the wounded writhed and moaned. Captain Prentice and Lieutenant Hawes foresiaw a fur ther sacirifice or life if the ether charge canght from the smolder- in sparks, and the two sent out a call for surgeons while they at tacked the flames with their bare hands. Captain Prentice reached the emplacement first and before looking into the extent of dam age, he pushed his way through the smoke and sparks and car ried out a bag of powder. He then was joined by Hawes, and the two completed the task of averting a further explosion. Washington, D. C., July'22.— Further particulars rcgiirding the fatal explosion attending the heavy gun practice fire in whicli eleven soldiers were killed and several seriously injured, were received at the War Department today from Colonel Townsley. The accident was due to a prenir ature discharge and before the breech block was in place. The discipline at the battery, after the accident, was excellent, the shocked and injured men direct ing the work of aid in removing the more seriously injurM and dead. Lieutenant Hawes, ex tinguished with his bare handLs burning material which threat ened to ignite a second powder charge. The officers express thei deepest sympathy today for the dead and injured. Just what is responsible for the explosion is not known definately, but it is believed it was not due to lack of precaution on the part of the gun crew. In Honor of Miss Brown.
