Duncan Murchison, aged 77, passed away quietly and peacefully at 5 o’clock p. m., March 1st, at his home near Kingston. He had been in very feeble health for some time, but his friends did not think he was dangerously ill until a few days before his death. He was a noble man, good citizen, and had been a worthy and consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church South for forty years. We will all miss him. He leaves his aged companion, several sons and daughters, the church and our entire community, to mourn his loss, but our loss is his eternal gain. We tender the sympathies of our entire community to the bereaved ones.

Murchison’s Station.

Since our last communication there has been a gloom cast over our little community by the death of Mr. D. Murchison, who departed this life on Friday March first. He will be sadly missed by us all, but we feel that our loss is his gain.
