Mark In County
Driver Narrowly Escapes
Burning Vehicle Loaded
Orville Lee Reed, of Asheville,
miraculously escaped injury last
Friday morning about 8:30 o'clock
when the truck he was driving,
loaded with asphalt, collided with
another truck and plunged down
the bank into Walnut Creek where
it burst into flames.
The collision happened in front
of the residence of Mrs. Lee Ram
Bey. The truck driven by Reed
was head up Walnut Creek where
the highway is being improved.
Another truck, driven by Harold
Dean Penland, of f'ensacola, N.
C, was headed toward Marshall.
The two collided on a slight
curve and the truck loaded with
asphalt overturned into the creek.
Second later, flames engulfed the
truck and fortunately, Reed was
able to jump out uninjured. Pen-
land also escaped injury.
The burned truck was owned by
Charlie Brooks, Jr., and the oth
er 'truck was owned by Jess
The burned truck was a total
loss and damage to the Cooper
truck was estimated at $1500.
The Marshall firemen extin
guished the flames on the truck.
TRAIN HERE SAT.
An unusual accident occurred
here Saturday morning when a
freight train on the side track at
the depot struck a 1962 Thunder
bird convertible which was park
ed a little to near to the tracks.
When the train struck the car
slowly it flung the car into a tel
ephone post and back into the path
of the train. The impacts com
pletely demolished the car.
Fortunately, no one was in the
car at the time.
The car belonged to Harold
TreanVay of Marshall.
Once there was a poor little
shoe who was crying because its
mother was a sneaker and its fa
ther was a loafer.

lawyer, got a telephone call one
"Do you know where I could
get a good coon dog?" the caller
asked when he answered.
Anglin recognized the voice
right off as that of a man he had
known a long time and with whom
he had done a bit of bear-huntin'
on nearby Mount Mitchell.
In the next few minutes, a whole
new career opened up for Anglin
that would take him from his law
office here and put a damper on

pavement It's a picture of the courthouse under construction about 1904. It's an
interesting picture and one you will want to clip out and keep. Merritt CogdSll, of Hot
Spring, Route 1, brought the picture in last week and said it originally belonged to
the late I. W. Brown who died a few years ago.
The building on the corner (left) was known as the T. N. James Building. It
was here that Doditon's Grocery was located. It is now the site of Home Electric &
Furniture Co. Looking closely in front of the building and next to the left side of
the courthouse you will not a corner of the roof of the residence of Mr. and Mrs
Will H. Morrow. Glancing over the rest of the picture yon will note the dock has nafc
been installed in the dome. The lower window panes are not in and the stops haven' t
been poured At the right upper corner is the J. H. White residence, now the Balsam
Tourist Home. Above the residence can be seen a portion of the roof of the old Presby
terian school which preceded the block school built on the site. The wooden building
to the right of the courthouse was known as the John A. Nichols Building- uadH for
mercantile business. Another interesting part of the picture is the well at the corner
of Main and Lower Bridge Street which supplied the town with water. Note the un-
paved streets, also. Neither
tured by the well have beta
