Gloom and sadness has settled over our midst tonight, and the heart language fails us, when we think of the beautiful life and its sad terminus, of our friend Mr. J. V. Owens. Last Tuesday he left for Orlando, Fla., and today the sad news of his death, caused by a kick from a horse—though we have not learned the particulars. All that is left of our friend Van will arrive in the city tomorrow evening, accompanied by his cousin Mr. Charlie Owens. The community is shrouded in gloom, intensified by the lowering cloud.

To the bereaved mother and brother, our heart goes out in deepest sympathy and may God comfort them as he alone can.


“ Kingston.”

Kingston was greatly shocked at the sudden death of Mr. Van Owens, who was killed by the kick of a horse, near Orlando, Fla., a few days since. He was well known in this community and highly respected. We extend our sympathies to the bereaved ones. His remains will arrive today and be buried at the cemetery near his old home in the 17th district.
