Jennie, wife of Rufus Ashurst, died at the family
residence in this city Monday morning at 1:30 o'clock,
after a short illness of pneumonia, aged 26
years. She was a daughter of Jas. G. and E.A.
Cox. Besides the grief stricken husband, she leaves

remains were interred at Soule's Chapel burying ground.
Tinsley Mershon, who has been sick for nearly two years
with consumption of the bowels and a hip trouble,
breathed his last at 8:30 Monday morning. He was
conscious up to his death and having made peace with his
Maker, he had frequently expressed his willingness to
meet Him in the great beyond. Mr. Meshon was 27
years old and was an unusually clever and good hearted
young man. Until the dread disease began to gnaw at
his vitals he worked hard to help support his widowed
mother, Mrs. Gran C. Mershon, and sisters, who are now
bowed down with grief over their loss. At ten
o'clock this Tuesday morning, the remains will be taken
to Buffalo Cemetery where after short services at the
grave by Rev. W.S. Grinstead, they will be laid to rest.
Millsville. J.W. Baugh sold to Abe Wolf six head of
fat cattle and three fat hogs. Anyone having a
horse to swap would do well to come this way as we have a
preacher in the business. Pitman Creek has been on
a boom for the last week. Sam Mill's mill came very
near being washing away last Thursday night. He is
repairing the damage. Someone would do well to come
to this neighborhood and put up a first class store and
attend strictly to business, as people now have to go to
Somerset for nearly everything. No services at any
of the churches last Sunday. Why is it we can not
have preaching every Sunday? Three good churches
and only have preaching once a month at any of them and
still we have people that claim to be sanctified
Correspondents. It is not a matter of news that Joe
Jonsing or anybody else went across the road to visit his
son or daughter, and when men or women go two or three
miles on a visit, that is not the kind of news that we
want. If we were to publish every visit of that
kind in Pulaski County,
we would have to print a paper as big as the side of a
barn. It is news we want, and only something out of
the usual course of things, in the way of visits, is
Town and Country. We regret to hear
of the serious illness of Mr. John Newell, of
Pulaski has fifty post offices, a dozen more than any
other county of the State.

seriously injured a few days ago by having a jack to slip
and thereby letting a car drop upon his hand, crushing
several bones, causing injuries that will put him off
duty for some time, but it is to be hoped that the
permanent injury will not be very great.
Dr. J.M. Owens was called in great haste one day last
week to visit a patient west of town. When he
arrived he found a boy covered up in bed swearing
vigorously, with a steel-trap holding him by the
nose. The boy had been monkeying with the trap and
got caught. His nose was found to be broken when
the doctor released him. Burnside Item.
Had To Take Water. Last Sunday the good people of
King's Mountain vicinity were given a big dose of ice
water, to an extent that they had not prepared for and
that was not altogether pleasant or profitable. A
dark cloud having gathered over that fair little city,
its contents condensed into big drops, which were sent
earthward, but they, passing through a Manitoban current
of the air, did not reach the house tops of Kingsville
until they had frozen and gathered into hailstones about
the size of hens' eggs, and reports say that the
ratter-clatter of the hail was terrible for a few
minutes. The hail was awful to stock as well as to
people who were exposed to it, and even seeing and
hearing it was awe-inspiring. The damage done
consisted principally in the smashing of window glass,
some houses, it is said, not having a glass left.
The sheet of water that came before and after the hail is
said to have been almost a deluge.

Religious. Preaching at Johnston's Hall next Sunday
by Geo. A. Klingman. Geo A. Klingman preached at
Louisville Sunday and Sunday night. We understand
that Geo. Klingman organized a congregation of forty
members at Burnside and put them in working order.
Mr. John Golden of Burnside made no charge for the use of
his hall by Mr. Klingman during his protracted meeting at
that place. Mr. Hilton's meeting at the Christian
Church is likely to continue several days yet. His
audiences are large, and there have been some accessions
to the church.
