SAMUEL LANCE SERIOUSLY
Samuel Lance, who lives on the
Cedar Mountain road, about 9 miles
from Brevard, had a very serious
accidcnt recently. He has been very
feeble for many years, and only able
to walk with much difficulty. He
fell in the fire place striking his head
on one of the fire irons, inflicting a
very serious wound, partially frac
turing' the skull. He was resting very
well at last report, but is not yet con
sidered out of danger.

G. M. GLAZENER
G. M. Glazener, familiarly known
to his thousands of friends through
out this and Henderson county as
“Bud,” died at the Patton Memorial
hospital at Hendersonville at twelve
o’clock Saturday, October 25th. He
was taken sick three v/eeks prior to
his death with a carbunkle and from
the time he entered the hospital little
hope was entertained for his recov
ery, although at times he seemed
very much improved.
The funeral services were conduct

to Calvert, this county, for interment,

Transylvania county, having been
reared at Calvert, near Rosman. He
conducted a suc<ressful mercantile
bsuiness in Brevard a few years ago
in connection with his Hendersonville
business. At the time of Ms death
he was considered one of Henderson
ville’s leading business men.
Mr. Gl&zsner was a friend to ev
erybody, and especially to the chil
dren. He never failed to have some
thing pleasant to say to a child when
ever he saw one—rich or poor alike.
The deceased was 51 years of age
and leaves a mother, four brothers
and five sisters to mourn their loss.

After all the exhibits had beer

was arranged, and furnished amuse

Some of the things in which the vis

a greased pole, an official horseshoe

bucking horse contest. Climbing the
greasy pole afforded considerable
amusement all during the day while
the horsefehoe pitching contest was al
so an enthusiastic affair.
Much credit is due Mr. J. B. Neal,
Chairman of the Fair Association, for
making the event of entertainment
and interest to the community.
