IHath of W. P. Blanton.
We were never called on to throni-

death of our popular and esteemed
citizen, Mr W. 1. Blanton. The news of
his death was like an electric shock to
all his friends so sudden and unexpec:
ed was it. Just two weeks sgo 3Ir.
Blanton was taken sick but no one
thought it dangerous. On the contrary
every one was expecting him to be up
in a short while. On Monday night
about eight o'clock he complained of
being chilly and commenced to get
woj;se immediately. Physicians were
umnjoned and all that medical skill
and loving attention could accomplish
was done but in vain; t lie end came
about two o'clock.
The funeral services were held at his
residence on Main street Tuesday af
ternoon at 5 o'clock conducted by Rev.
M. M. Landrur.). A large concourse of
his friends attended the remains to his
last resting place. The grave was dec
