Last week there were four deaths near this place in forty-eight hours. On Friday morning very early Chas. Boothe died of fever, and just one hour and forty minutes after his death, his father, Andy Boone, died. His death was due to old age. The former leaves a wife and nine daughters to mourn the loss of father. Interment on the home place on Saturday. On last Saturday, Leonard Lane's youngest child died, and was interred in the new cemetery on Walnut Sunday. On Sunday the youngest child of Enoch and Lucinda Tanner died. There has not been such fatality here in years.

Mrs. Rufus Knotts is confined to her room with sickness.

Mrs. Alfred Jarvis is dangerously ill. Others on the sick list are reported convalescing.

E.C. Knotts is the happy father of a brand new baby girl.
