(from Zion) We are sorry to have to chronicle death of Mr. Sam Eidson. After a lingering illness Mr. Eidson passed away to his long resting place last Sunday morning at 8 o'clock. He was raised in this neighborhood from childhood and was a respectable citizen. He leaves a wife and four children with a mother and father and many relatives and friends to mourn his loss. Rev. Anderson of Fayetteville conducted the funeral services. His remains were interred in the Friendship cemetery yesterday at 11 a.m. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family and relatives.
