Fatal Accident. Mr. Dee Murly, of near Burkesville, was killed almost instantly late last Wednesday in an automobile accident.  Mr. Murly and three other citizens on horseback were coming toward Glasgow when they were overtaken by a truck loaded with tobacco which was coming to the Glasgow market. Mr. Murly’s horse was frightened and jumped into the middle of the road right in front of the truck, too late for the driver to stop. According to the best information we have, neither the driver of the truck nor its owner was in fault because the accident was unavoidable.

L.C. Ellis Store Scene of Hold-Up.  The drug store of L.C. Ellis was robbed /Tuesday night about 9:15.  Mr. Ellis had gone to the basement to lock up for the night when two young men walked in, supposedly to buy aspirin tablets.

When Justus Boston, who was on duty at the time, turned from procuring the aspirin, the two robbers pulled pistols and proceeded to take the contents ($21.00) of the cash register, as well as $9.00 and a watch from Mr. Boston. The whole performance took about 90 seconds. Boston said it was an interesting experience but he doesn’t want any more like it.

Delightful Birthday.  Friends and relatives of Mr. John E. Burke, of the Hiseville section, gathered at his beautiful country home Friday evening, the occasion being his 72nd birthday anniversary.  When his friends came streaming in just after dark, Mr. Burke had his first hint that something was up, and so it really was a surprise.

The visitors had also brought grub aplenty, and a most glorious hour was spent in feasting, singing, and visiting.  We really do believe that Mr. Burke enjoyed the evening even if it did remind him that he is getting older.
