Death of Mr. Jonathan Brooks.
Again the grim monster death
. visited our community and claims
for its victim one of our respect
ed and most aged citizens Jonat
han Brooks, who was bom in
Rockingham county December
11 1827 and was married to Sy-
rena C. Hurdle who preceeded
him to their celestial home, she
having died nine years ago.
Three sons, three grand child
ren survive them. He was a
consistent member of the Primi
tive Baptist Church for more than
50 years, a greater part of which
time was a deacon. He loved his
church and was a faithful atten
dant at all its services, a staunch
advocate of its doctrine and ne
ver lost an oppontunity to ad
monish the wayward or to en
courage the faint hearted his
motto being prepare for eternity
for time is but a span to connect
us with the everlasting beyond.
He was in the Thirty-sixth N.
C. Regiment during the civil war
and loved the cause of the south.
In politics he was an uncompro
mising Democrat, because he be-
lived democracy right. About
14 years ago he fell from a load
of feed and dislocated one of liis
hips which caused him to be un
able to walk without assistance
the rest of his life. During this
time he suffered much but bore
it all with patience.
On July 23rd at 2:30 o’clock at
the age of 82 he passed vale
sorrow and joined his life com
panin in that better land. And
novv?^ how sad the thought no fat
her or mother to love.
Funeral was conducted Sunday

A Deserving Compliment.

July 25th, 1910.
W, P. Ireland,
Hico Milling Co.,
3ai Sir:—I am writing you
this letter for the reason that
belicjve in giving credit where
credit is due.
I like good bread and have been
accustomed to it all my life, with
the possible exception v/hen I was
boarding away from home before
ray marriage. Since I have been
manied my only trouble about
bread is to provide enough of it.
In order to have good bread one
must good flour, of course,
and my vvife is very particular
abouit stiklng to a brand
that she has found to be satisfac
tory and for this reason she came
very: near countermanding an or
der i iiad given for a small sack
of flijiar for a trial after being
told by Grover Moore that he was
out of the brand we had been
buying which is a well know flour
ground at Danville, Va. Well,
the Bmall sack came and when
the l:)iscuits from it were on the
tabhs Sunday morning we all de
cided that the flour was superior
to any we havehad in long time. It
is wiiite, light and tastes good,
and there and then it occurred to
me to write you complimenting
you upon the product of youi’ new
mill. The only reason I can see
for any one sending any money
away from here for flour is that
you might not be able to supply
the deinand. The other mills in
the vieinity may make as good
but am sorry to say we havn’t
tried them lately.
W e are all too ready to patro
nize the fellow away from home
too the detriment of our friends
and neighbors, and in as much
as a steady flow of money is go
ing f3“om this State to Virginia
for another well known commo
dity it seems well enough to get
our flour and anything else we
have to buy from our home peo
ple if we can get it feood.
li" you can use this letter which
is v?ritten without your know
ledge and consent to further your
business in any way I hope
you will do so and you can count
upoa as as customers as long as
your sjoods are up to standard.
Was about to forget to mention
that siter eating breakfast Sun
day morning I was interested
endiigh to go to f h e pantry to
learn the brand of which I found
to be “HiCO Best.”
Vvitli good wishes, I am.

Washington, D. C., July'22.—
Further particulars rcgiirding the
fatal explosion attending the
heavy gun practice fire in whicli
eleven soldiers were killed and
several seriously injured, were
received at the War Department
today from Colonel Townsley.
The accident was due to a prenir
