CARE FOR POOR OF

With Rutherford For
Care of Poor.
Marion, Feb. 3.—Since the last
grand jury's report pronounced the
living quarters of the county home
as being unsuitable for human habi
tation, the county commissioners will
probably do nothing toward im
proving conditions there for the
purpose of bringing the paupers
back to this county, and will con-
tinue to send those that are not
taken care of by local individuals
to the Rutherford county home,

The burning brand, flung afar by the
wind, may easily start a fire that will des
troy your home. Someone else's careless
ness—not your fault—but you have to
stand the loss unless you have covered
your property with fire insurance.
Your best protection lies in
the sound indemnity offered by
the Hartford Fire Insurance Co.

your Hartford policy.

THE FOREST CITY COURIER, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 0, 1930
Capt, E. D. Dickson
Shelby, R-5, Feb. 3.—When any
man, however, poor, obscure and
humble is called to his reward, he
leaves some sincere mourners. Eut
when a man invested with the attri
butes of truth, honor, courage in
telligence and diligence is called to
his final rest the sorrow is general
within bounds of his acquaintance,
On Friday, January 24, 1930, the
spirit of a valuable citizen plumed
itself to flight for shores eternal. The
victim of the Grim Reaper was Cap
~ tain E. D. Dickson, who was virtual
ly 97 years of age, and who closed
; a useful, well-spent life, and cer
tainly was called to come up higher
according to rule of conduct reveal
ed in the Holy Scriptures. His has
ever been a useful and diligent life,
and he was an acknowledged model
for the youths who are developing
into manhood. When the tocsin of
war sounded in 1861, the call of his
country became the voice of God,
and he repaired to the tented field
to resist the invader. At the awful
battle of Gettysburg, he fell wound
ed in the thigh with a minie ball,
while leading his men towards the
heights of Cemetery Ridge. He was
kept a prisoner to the close of hos
tilities, and then trudged home rag
ged, footsore and weary. But with
the grim determination that distin
guished this gallant warrior when his
voice steadied his columns in the
roar and tumult of battle, he caus
ed the soil to respond to skillful '
cultivation and betfame a successful
farmer. He was also a sincere Christ-
ian, a Sunday school toiler in the
vineyard, a bright and intelligent ex
emplar of the charity required in the
mystic order of Freemasonry. Every
man who was well acquainted with
this useful citizen declared him to
be an honest man. the noblest work
of God, a knight without fear and
without reproach. He was an expon
ent of temperance by example and
precept, for he drank no intoxicants,
and his langauge was a model of
correct speech, without guile, ob
scenity or profanity. .
He was buried at Knob Creek
Methodist church, near Fallston, N.
C., where he had lived under ritual
of M. E. Church, South, and with
funeral honors of Freemasonry. An
immense concourse of people paid
him the honor of their sorrowing
presence in the last sad rites, and* a
tasty and abundant, floral display
adorned his last resting place. His
victories of peace were as great as
his triumphs of war, and in his sepul
chere he is laid to rest until the roll
is called up yonder.
"Soldier, rest; thy warfare's o'er,
sleep the sleep that knows no wak
ing; dream of battle fields no more,
days of danger, nights of waking."
