Mrs Ruth T Brown, who has been
an invalid for a number of years,
died at the residence of her son, S.
J. Brown, in this place, at 10 oclock
on last Friday night. 8ome five
years ago Mrs Brown was stricken
with apoplexy from which she
never fully recovered, and as she
was quite old being in her seveny-
eighthycar, hence her death was not
unexpected. Mrs. Brown was one
of the old citizens of this county,
as she had been living here, some
thirty years. She had been for a
number of years a consistent mem
ber of the Primitive Baptist church.
She leaves a large family, having
four sons and three daughters liv

George MerrellEsq., of this place
has bloomed out recently as a full
fledged correspondent of the Har-

that paper he gets off the follow

matches in general, and the late
walking match here in particular:
“If the muscle that is used in walk
ing matches, was employed in
splitting rails, cuttingwheat, hoeing
cotton, or some other useful
occupation, the country would be
benefitted. It looks queer that our

to ape the Yankee clerk of New-

Godey’s Lady’s Book for July is an
especially good number, and, con
sidering the high standard of this

as generous praise as could be be
stowed upon it. The book is just
entering upon its fifty-fifth year
and celebrates this mature anni
versary in a fitting manner. M.
E. B. occupies the opening page
with a poetical salutatory of more
than ordinary merit, and then
come the initial chapters of “Dree
ing of the AA’eird, ” the new serial
by Helen Mathers author of “Corn
in' thro, the Rye,” “Cherry Ripe
etc etc. A pretty picture of Agatha
illustrates “The Nut-Brown Maid”
this month, and Charles Ledyard
Norton spins a curious yarn called
The ^New Hand.” The original
design for crazy patch work which
accompanies the book furnishes
the illustration for a story by
Dulcie A\ r eir, in which the trials of
two vouhg ladies who start out to
make a quilt are amusingly set
forth. The poems this month are
especially good, and there is a full
quota of short stories and sketches.

IT. Haulenbeek A Co, Pliila., offer

say they could not have made a
different report and stated facts.
AVhen he presented his books to
the grand jury for examination
and being asked by the foreman
what amount of school funds he
had on hand, he said seventeen
dollars. The foreman said “Mr.
BroM’n, you say you have seventeen
dollars in your hands belonging to
the school fund; noM' Mr. BroM’n is
this seventeen dollars all the
money that you have or that has
come into your hands from any
source since you settled with teach
ers in December:” To M’liichhe, Mr.
Brou'n, said it was. He then told
him his books ought to show it.
The grand jury then appointed a
committee of three to examine his
books and report to the body. This
committee met him in the clerk’s
office that evening and commenced
the examination. All that they
could find on his books, Mas elev
en dollars and seventy-three cents
buthe stated to the committee that
he had $230, and asked if the com
mittee wanted to see the money.
They told him they had nothing
to do with the money but his book
ought to show* what he had
received and paid out, giving date,
etc. Non* you see why the report
was made that his books were not
kept in a business like manner. He
states that itwas based on the fact
that at the time he went before the
grand jury, Friday, he had failed
to enter on his book some money
which he had a fen* days before
court received from the.tax collect
or. Non’ if he had said he had failed
to enter on his book any money
that had colne into his hands, be
fore or since the settlement with
the teachers for 1883, he M’ould have
stated a fact.- He further states
that the committee expressed them
selves as being satisfied, tliatit was
all right. Their report back to the
grand jury proves to the contrary.
He says he made all the entries on
his books-and carried them before
the grand jury on Saturday morn
ing in order to prevent an unfavor-
ble report, and believes if every
member of that body had examined
his books after all the.entries M ere
made and seen for himself just
what the books shon ed, they M’ould
have refused to make such report
as they did. The grand jury M as not
satisfied M’ith the books hence the
appointment of the committee.

in the court house April 22. He

1883, He states that the committee

Upon the investigation of the com

be reconciled He stated to the grand
jury in body he had only seven
teen dollars on hand, but that same
evening he stated to the committee
that he had $230.00, and his book
only shoM’ed $11J3. He, S. J.
Brown, stated to the committee
that he knew nothing about book
keeping. I suppose he offered this
as an excuse for the maner in M’hich
he had kept his books. Permit me
to say lust here, that the book pre
sented to the grand jury n as not the
book examined by the committee
and the book turned over to the
present commissioner is not the
book the committee examined.
