MR. NED ROGERS DIED. We have just received the news of the death of Mr. Ned Rogers which occurred at his home Thursday. June 26, 1925

MR. E.D. ROGERS DIED. Mr. E.D. Rogers, age 67, passed away at his home near Folkston last Thursday morning after an illness of several weeks with pneumonia. His daughters, Miss Alma and Miss Leo and niece Miss Bernice, who are graduate nurses, were with him during his illness and did everything possible to restore his health. He was reverently laid away at Sardis Cemetery with Rev. W.O. Gibson conducting the service. Mr. Rogers is survived by his widow; four daughters, Mrs. Belflower, Alma, Leo and Lanie; one son, Carl; three brothers, H.V. Rogers, W.R. Rogers and J.H. Rogers; one sister, Mrs. Jim Thomas. Mr. Rogers was one of the county's successful farmers, having a pretty home surrounded by bearing fruit trees of many kinds.

ST. GEORGE SCHOOL ADDITION. The addition to the St. George school house is going up rapidly. Mr. W.T. Londeree, to whom the contract was awarded, has his material all assembled.

RIVER BRIDGE NEEDS REPAIR. The bridge across the St. Marys River near St. George is in need of repair. A truck load of lumber from Mahoney Lumber Co. intended for the St. George school broke through one day last week. It was righted with no damage done other than a hole in the bridge.

SCHOOL BIDS. Bids for the transportation of the Johnson school pupils and the Petty school pupils to the Uptonville Consolidated School will be received June 30th at the Uptonville School. -- Mrs. B.B. Gowen, Sec. Board of Trustees
