In the tragic death of Dr. Alex F.
Jones who was killed by train No. 4
that struck his car while passing the
railroad at the station Friday morning
our people are overwhelmed with
sorrow unspeakable. Before coming
to Cameron some six months ago,
Dr. Jones was a practicing physician
in Surry county. He served twenty
months in France, came back and
was married to Miss Opal Whitaker
of Siloam. He then went to New
Orleans and took a post graduate
course in surgery. At the request of
friends he came to Cameron, bought
a home which he remodeled and
beautified. He lived for his profes
sion and his lovely young wife. She
lived for her husband and home.
People remarked of their devotion
and happiness, and were glad. He
was known for an upright, honest
and conscientious man and physician.
Those who knew him best, liked him
most. Long will his kindly eye and
cheerful voice be missed in the sick
room. Not long since, in a sick room
he made the remark, that he chose
his profession because it was a work
that helped suffering humanity. Let
us hope that the Lord was merciful
to him and that he suffered no pain
at the fatal hour. Although no hope
was given by the physician who ex
amined him, he was taken on train
to the C. C. Hospital, but died before
reaching Lemon Springs. His body,
with his heart broken young wife was
accompanied to his former home in
Surry county, by Messers J. T. Doss,
M. McL McKeithen, Laurence Taylor,
Mr. Bruner andMisses Mollie Reed,
and Bessie Boaz.
All railroad stations are dangerous
where there are several tracks and
crossings, and through trains instead
of putting on more speed as they
pass the small stations, should slow
up or ring a bell while passing.
