one of the saddest Incidents that has
happened ia our vicinity in many years
was that on last Friday evening when
Mr. J. West Suttoa, of Mash county,
was throws front h<s wagon in front of
the Ballard place about th'ee miles east
of town, by his males runn'ng away
after becoming frigntened at a paii.ui
automobile. In falling M-. Sutton fell
on Ins head and broke his neck- dying
almost instantly. Y.r. Sutton's home is
on the Louisburg a->d Nashville road
betweeu;Sp ing Hepe and Castslis and
he wis rettr aing home after having
sold a load of lobacce on the local mar
ket. He occupied th?' wagon alone,
however his son, Charlie, was driving a
wagon just ahead of him, also a friead
occupied still another wagon. He was
71 years 0/ age and leaves a wi'e and
six children. We understand the party
in the automobile was from Wilson's
Mills and were retura'jig from the f??
etal of Dr. J. H. U*zall wno ? as enter

and h'?hl / respected by all who knew
