In the death of Mr. H. C. Garrison, which occurred last Friday afternoon this community has suffered a severe loss.  “Bud” Garrison was a deservedly popular man.  He was a man of sterling traits of character, an efficient, energetic and conscientious official of the government, a true friend and a loving thoughtful husband and father and generous and kind in all the offices of his life.  His had been a protracted illness, which he bore with rare fortitude and patience.  He was buried at the cemetery at Pinelog, Rev. W. A. Dodge performing the burial service.  His wife, a most estimable lady, and three children survive him.

Mr. H. C. Garrison died at his residence in this place on last Friday.  He had been a patient sufferer for several months, and his death was no surprise to his friends, for they knew the end was only a question of time, and that upon the exhaustion of his wonderful constitution.  The peculiarity of his disease baffled the doctors and the whole medical science was ransacked in vain to find some antidote that would check its ravages or allay the intense pain it caused.

The deceased was a man of many fine qualities, a strong, generous friend, a devoted husband, a kind and thoughtful father.  He was a good citizen, and his death is a sad loss to the community. His remains were interred at the Pine Log graveyard, Rev. W. A. Dodge officiating.  He leaves a wife and a host of friends to mourn his loss.
