Mrs, Millie Wagoner Dead.
Numbers of our older people
will, remember a man, Daniel
Wagoner, who lived, here a' num
ber of years ago and who was a
well known blacksmith. He has
been dead a long time, but on
Monday his widow, Millie Wag
oner, followed him to the grave.
She was nearly 90 years of age
and lived at H L Suther's, near
Troutman's. The news of her
death caused sadness to Mr.
Daniel Heathcock, of this place,
who looked upon this man and
wife as his parents almost, as he
was reared from childhood by
them and continues to follow the
trade taught him by Mr.
Cul.'ag Affray In Long Creek.
There was a serious cutting
affray in Long Creek Monday.
