Prof. Sam Ingram was in to see us Saturday. He reports his school at
Cleveland in a flourishing condition. He says the town is still
up--four new buildings now in course of construction, and the new
Baptist church (which will be the best building of its kind in the
county) is almost completed.
While returning from church last Sunday, O.F. Buckner's horse ran away
throwing him and his wife from the buggy, breaking her arm and
his knee. Their little son was in the front part of the buggy asleep
did not wake. The accident was caused by the breaking of the harness
while going down the mountain at Tait's Gap.
The Ladies' Aid Society of the Baptist Church has issued invitations to
an entertainment to be given at the Guthrie Hotel on the evening of
October 29th, at 7:30 to 11 o'clock. Accompaning (sic) the invitation
an envelope on which is printed the following request:
"Place in this envelope, (and shed no tears)
As many pennies as you have years,
And to the ladies, who fear to tell,
How many years on earth they dwell,
We guarantee no one shall know,
One from another, here below!"
The Blount County Medical Society held a very interesting meeting in
Oneonta Tuesday. Several matters of interest to the profession were
discussed. Dr. J.S. Wittmeier was elected County Health Officer and Dr.
J.H. Berrier City Physician for Oneonta and physician for the paupers
and prisoners. By unanimous vote the Society went on record in favor of
prohibition. The attendance was the best had in many years.
A Card of Thanks
We wish to extend our sincere thanks to our neighbors and friends for
their many deeds of kindnesses and favors rendered us during the
and death of our companion and mother.
The many good people of Oneonta will always have a warm place in our
hearts for their many expressions of sympathy rendered us during the
dark hours of bereavment.
