community eight miles sohth of Louis
burg, between Roek Spring and Mew
Hepe churehe>. A considerable aom

In a recent issue of tiie Saturday

made of its readers to write an essay
on the historic Athens, with an under
standing '.tbat the best one received
would be published. Little Miss Elea
nor Yarbo rough, daughter of eur effi
cient Register of Deeds, saw the re

' p llment to Miss aieanor and her many
friends here rejoice with her at her
Mrs. 9. W. Brown Dead.
The home of Mr. G. W. Brown on
Kenmore Avenue was made sad on Sun -
day morning early when the death aa
gel entered and claimed for its own his
beloved wife. Mrs. Brown was well
known in this oounty, having been born
and reaped herein, and has many rela
tives and friends to whom the announc
ment ef her death will cause sorrow.
Although she had been in ill health for
some time na one drefcmed of her con
dition being so critical and her death
was a sudden shock to our people. She
was a sister to the late Dr. E. S. Fos
ter, and has a brother, Mr. P. W. Fos
ter, of Ingleside, and a sister, Mrs. P.
J. Garmway, of Greensboro, who still
survive her. She was 36 years of age
and besides her husbend leaves two
daughters, Misses Mamie and Matilda
Brown, of Amityville, N. Y., and three
sons, Messrs. Pester Brown, of Nor
folk, and Peyton and Wilmot Brown,
of Louisburg. She was a consistent
member of the Methodist church- and
her funeral waa preached by the pastyi,

attributes worthily bestowed. After
the ceremony the remains were taken

young farmer and a well known citizen
of Franklin county.
Cotton seed is bringing 30 cents per
bushel on the local market and quite a
nice lot of them are being sold.
Someone recently suggested that
Louisburg organize a bra. a band. Well
why no;? Louisburg has certainly got
just as good material for a band as anv
town on or off the map and could easi
ly make a success if some one would
only make a start. We would certain
ly be glad to announce the start and
still more so tbe successful completion
of the course.
Quite a little excitement was aroused
pn list Friday evening about night when
the fire alarm. was tnmed in and i?.was
learned the trouble was at the beauti
ful home of Mr. F. N. Egerton, on In
street. A large crowd gathered and
tbe fire companies reported for duty in
their usual quick time to learn that it
was only a chimney burning eut and
that the tamilv were awsre of it and
had the tire under control.
Mr. Ben M. Moore, of Raleigh, who
was being sued in connection with a
land deal by Mr. W. J. Alford, of
Youngsville township, and which case
was tried and completed on last Thurs
day night, came out successful. It was
a long drawn oat suit but the jury was
pretty well decided before the case was
given them. Quite a large array of le
gal talent represented both sides.
One of the most interesting iocideots
in Louisburg the past week and espec
ially to the ladies, was the opening clis-"
play of fine ehina at M. C. Pleasants,
E&ch year he has these openings and
each one shows a decided improvement

God moves in & mysterioqs way, His
wonders to perform.
Early in the moraine of September
20th just as twilight was fading the air
serene and all nature in perfect quiet
ness. our Ruler took from ua the life of
our dearly beloved sister, Mary. The
burial took place at tha family burial
ground at the home of her mother,
Mrs. H. A. Hines, amid beautiful na
ture, a large company of sympathetic
friends and a serene hope of glorious
immortality, i ? ' -1.
The funeral services were impres
sively conducted by Rev. G. M. Duke.
She became a member of Peach fret
Baptist church when she was only
sixteen years of age, and has since that
time been a constant member and lived
an example of true christian life.
Sister Mary was sick only three
weeks, and she made a wondrous ef
fort for recovery, but Providence had
evidently decreed that her spirit was
needed in the eternal city. God often
takes that which is nearest our hearts
to bind us to His will.
Mary was attractive in person, cour
teous and pleasant in her manners,
affectionate and kind in her home,
therefore she was truly loved by her
husband, members of the family, her
mother, brothers and s'sters.
As the budding flower emits its frag
rance to the passing breezed, so did her
lovable character pojr its virtuous
impulses ints the hearts of others.
Mr. Bunn's devotion to his wife, our
sister, and her trust and affection for
him was beautiful.
To the husband we extend our warm
est heart-felt sympathy.
Some times we are induced to think
we are ruled by an uniust King, though
we cannot always discern the ways of
Providence, yet we must bow in sub
mission to the blow, remembering that
the ways of Him who doitth all things
well are as inacruable as 4hey are wiae.
We believe she Is now safely landed .
where snowy white crowns ahe will
wear and the gates of the city stand
open to welcome us there.
