Postmaster of Scotland Neck, Jno. C. Pittman, is sick.

Pneumonia is quite prevalent in this surrounding vicinity. There have been three burials in the cemetery within the last week.

We are glad to note that Mr. Richard Smith, Jr.,  who has been confined to his bed for the past week, is now able to be out and expects to attend court some this week. He has some important issues.

Dr. J.D. Hufham was able to preach again last Sunday. His congregation was pleased to see him out after a week’s illness, and appreciated his sermon very much.
