GREENSBOROI'N C TUESJiAi:, SEPTEMBEE 15,. 1885.
— Mr. Geo. Lampman, of Ohio, is
at the Benbow House. He moved
from Ohio for the benefit ^ his
family’s health, and will open a
jewelry store in this place. We
welcome all such comers.
—Oliver Staley, who lives about a
mile and a half from Julian, on the C.
F. t'c V. V- Railroad, shows a stalk
of com seventeen feet and one inch
high. There are plenty of stalks in
tlie same field very nearly as high as
that one. *
—Rev. J. R. Jones, who lives at
Summerfield, in this* county, has had
fine experience^ with clover. He
sowed five acres in March, without
any fertilizer, and cut from the
ground the last of August two tons
of clover hay.
—President Gray and Col. J. M.
Rose went down to Fayetteville this
returned to Raleigh this morning
from, this place.
—Capt. J. M. Odell, of Concord,
was here to-day, to attend the
funeral of Mr. Curtis.
—George S. Bradshaw, Esq,, of
Asheboro, has been here to-day, but
left for home this afternoon.
—R. P. Gray, Sec’y and Treasurer
of the North State Improvement
Company, and J. K. Williams, Treas
urer of tire C. F. & Y. V. Railroad,
are paying ofi' the employees of the
C. F. & Y. V. R R- to-day, between
this place and Fayetteville.
—News has been received here - of
the death of Perry L. Shepherd, who
lived near Gibsonville. He was a
merchant and did his trading, here.
We are without any further particu
lars, except that his death occurred
yesterday evening. Articles for
burying purposes were procured from
I our dealers here to day.
j S'dl'--'. (cAScnnlb
j Carolina, who has been lecturing in
this State and South Carolina in the
interest of temperance, delivered one
of her lectures at the Benbow Hall
last evening on the above named sub
ject-. Mrs. Chapin is a very suc
cessful lecturer, we understand, and
highly pleased her audience last
night, which was a large one.
Our Loss.—The death of such a
man as the late Dennis Curtis, whose
funeral occurred to day, and whose
body was committi^i to the dust in
Greenhill cemetery, brings no com-
I mon loss to his family and church,
j and to the community at large. The
i tribute to his worth—-a brief memoir
; read from the late pas-
j tor—was a very just .uid satisfactory
! accountofTihe life th.it had just closed,
I and yet none but those who were
Gntimate with the deceased could so
fully appreciate the finer touches
that were given to .his character.
Busy as was his life, and burdened
as it was with muluform cares and
the crosses from v.hich none are
free, there was no 'irneof the day
when he was not re.'.dy to speak on
the subject of perso lal religion, and
evince the joy with'which his spirit
drank continually r.iprm the wells of
salvation. In this matter there were
but few like him— too few in any
community. We c?:^, not, therefore,
SLifi'er the occasion ho pass without
saying something in praise of a man
whose worth was sr-* great, who ex
hibited in his daily life a virtue so
rare and yet so ne'essary to men.
No community has many such char
acters to spare, and .in the time tb
come we shall reali/.-: the fact more
fully than we can now.
