“Over the County.”


Great gloom was cast over our quiet place on Saturday morning, the 7th, by the announcement of the death of Mr. John H. Harris.  While we expected his death at any time, still it was a sad blow to our entire community.  Mr. Harris was one of our brightest young men, full of life, a fine business man.  About two years ago he was attacked with a slight cough which terminated in consumption and being a man possessed of great vitality he fought against it and everything was done for him that medical skill and kind friends could do.  But still the progress of the disease could not be checked and at 5 o’clock a. m., Jan. 7th, his spirit passed over the river, and we believe he was prepared to go and is now at rest.  His remains were interred at the family graveyard at Connaseen Church by the side of his father, Mr. J. S. Harris, who was laid away three months ago, the funeral services were conducted by Bro. Tuggle, at the grave.  He leaves a wife, mother and several brothers and sisters and many friends to mourn his loss. But their loss is his gain.  The bereaved ones have the heartfelt sympathies of our community.
