MR. JOHN M. RODDENBERRY DIED. From resolution of Folkston Lodge No. 268 of I.O.O.F.: John M. Roddenberry died on January 12, 1925. He was born on November 26, 1880. He was a little more than 44 years old.

MRS. WEST LOYD DIED. Mrs. West Loyd, 44 years of age, died in Jacksonville last week. The remains, accompanied by friends, were brought to Camp Pinckney Church where Rev. Saunders preached the funeral Sunday afternoon. Interment was at Pigeon Creek Church.

CHARLTON IS BLESSED. L.E. Mallard returned Monday from a visit to his parents in Statesboro. He was away longer than he intended on account of high waters between here and Atlanta. Do our people realize we are living in a favored locality? Georgia in the past two weeks has been visited by floods, land has been covered with water, the crops have been destroyed, cattle and stock drowned, homes washed away, bridges wrecked and railroads tracks for miles completely washed away. Darien, Townsend and other places are isolated from the balance of the world. Food supplies ran low in these towns. The Red Cross and tugboats are supplying food and other necessities to the stricken people. Our worse inconvenience was the delay in mail.
