commissioner, visited Prof. Marshall’s
That was indeed a highly interesting
article which “Mome,” your McGuire’s
Crossing correspondent, gave in last
week’s paper concerning the tragic death
of tliat opossum. It was so sad, and we
consider it a pity that the province of a
('ourant-American neighborhood corre
spondent embraces the noting of all
opossums and like animals who meet
their death at the hands of a cruel loco
motive. Here is mine: The other morn
ing as we walked alongside the railroad
track we were most horribly shocked by
the sight of the mangled remains of an
innocent frog, which had been crushed by

tending our protracted meeting at Cass
ville, and going to both day and night
services, getting home between twelve
and one o’clock at night, leaving b.v
eight next morning, we really had no
time to write. Hope to do better in the
future. We had a real good meeting.
Several additions to the church and a
great many of the members were greatly
revived, in fact, the whole church was
greatly benefit ted.
Last Friday night we had one of the
heaviest showers of the season, accom
panied with very heavy thunder. Lands
were badly washed.
Miss Lizzie White, of Kingston, visited
Grassdale people generally. Everybody
was very much pleased with Miss Lizzie,
and if she was as favorably impressed
with our people it will not be very long
before she will repeat her visit. Miss
Lizzie was accompanied in her rounds by
Misses Indie Saxon and Alleeu Best.
Messrs. Crawford and Malone, two
young gentlemen from Calhoun, spent

Mr. Virgil Linn, who was prostrated by
heat while threshing.
Mr. Gibbons has as fine an upland
patch of melons as can be found any
where. Some of them are equal in size
to the best river melons. As to their
sweetness I can cheerfully testify, having
had the pleasure of testing several very
fine ones. On Wednesday last a large
crowd spent the evening at Mr. Gibbous*
very pleasantly in social conversation
and eating quite a number of very fine
melons. The unanimous verdict was
that the evening was a most delightful

A lively company, led by Captain John

The young men of the Pine Log Insti
tute now have a debating club which

It becomes my painful duty to chroni
cle the death of Mrs. L. P. Gaines, at
midnight Saturday, August 4th. She
suffered for 22 days with typhoid fever.
She was well known in our community
and was greatly beloved by all. She
leaves a devoted husband and five chil
dren and many relatives and friends to
mourn her loss. The funeral services
were conducted at the Baptist church at
4 o'clock Sunday evening by Revs. Dyar
and Tuggle, and at 5 o’clock the last sad
rites were at the Kingston cemetery,
where our friend and neighbor was con
signed to the silent tomb. We tender
our warmest sympathies to the bereaved
Rev. J. M. White, pastor of the Metho
dist church, is holding a protracted
meeting at his church, which promises to
be a good meeting.
Our town was surprised at the sudden
disappearance of one Mrs. A. Davidson,
who stopped at the Cloud House several
days. She had three little children with
her and said they were her grand-chil
dren. She claimed to be from Sacramen
to, Cal., and was on her way to her old
home near Staunton, Ya. She repre
sented herself to be the widow of Col.
John Davidson, and that she was in very
easy circumstances, and left Kingston
to go to Rome to provide for some poor
relatives there, and was to have returned
in a few days. She went around Rome
with a real estate agent to buy a consid
erable amount of property for her grand
children and the family of Mr. John P.
Davidson. She left Rome to go to King
ston to pay her board bill of eleven dok
lars at the Cloud House, and one dollar
and fifty cents in change she borrowed
from J. M. Davidson. She did not come
by Kingston and failed to pay her board
bill and borrowed money in Rome. She
is a sharp swindler and it is to be hoped
she will be taken up for some of her
sharp practice. I trust this notice will
prevent others from being duped by her.

a snug little house for a barber shop.
