w. c. AYCOCK and his esteemed family left last Tuesday imorning for Griffin. Mr. Aycock has bought a-new engine for his machine shop in Griffin and will let his old one remain here His mill here is in charge of Mr , W. Boynton, a good miller and a clcyer and accomodating gentleman. We regret very much to lose Mr. Aycock and his family from our town. As a citizen he was always found on the right side of all public questions of interest to the town. He had a great deal of pub lie spirit and untiring energy in his business. lie will not only be missed on account of these facts, for he was also one of the leading members of the Baptist church holding the offices of Deacon and Sunday school superintendent, and taking leading interest in all titc work of that cliurch. Ho was one of the leading spirits and movers in the completion of the church two years ago superintending the work and working day after day preparing materials for the work &c. His daughter Miss Hallie had just begun to be useful among u.s as a teacher of music and as an exemplary young lady. Many of your readers will remember that she performed on the organ at the annual Sunday school celebration l)ere a year ago and that a vote of thanks was tendered her by that association. In fact we could not realize our loss until we began to sum up these facts. They carry with them to Griffin the best wishes of many friends in Whitesburg that they may be happy and prosperous.
