?bipR on the ditch bank on the
toad side nenr his home, a few
"miles South of Farmville, in
Greene county, the evenine be
fore, and as he failed to come
up for supper.the family thought
that he bad probably gotten up
with some one and gone over to
Farmville, as he had often done
before, and would return later in
the evening, so they were not
uneasy about his whereabouts.
But when day broke the next
morning and Still he had not put
in his appearance his brother,
Mr. Ben Bynum, went out in
seasch, finding him face fore
most in the ditch where he was
at work the afternoon before,
with his head burried in the bot
tom of ihfe ditah and his feet rest
ing on the bank higher up. He
immediately summoned the cor
oner, Dr. J. H. Harper, of Snow
Hill, to the scene, who, upon ex
amination, found there had been
no foul play, but a ease of heart
failure or apperplexy.
Mr. Bynum was a son of the
late John T. Bynum, was 47
years old; a Mason in good
landing, member of Farmville
Lodge No. 517; a successful far
mer and a good, true and loyal
citizen, thought wetl of by all
who knew him, and in his death
