Death came p<9ctedly while Shannon was sitting in his chair. He had been about town Tuesday afternoon and was apparently well Snd in his usofd ¿0^ humor. Smrviving this pioneer farmer Fire of unknown origin causcd a damage estimated at $5,000 in the Schacht garage at Pocahontas early Sunday. The alarm was turned in about I o'clock Sunday morning and the entire building was enveloped in a screen of detise black smoke when the Pocahontas fire department arrived on the scene. The heavy smoke prevented the fticn from entering the single story brick building until the flaces were quenched by drenching the entire interior with water. The source of the fire in the stock room was then reached. Office and .Stock Room Damaged Damape done by the fire was confined to the front of the garage. Repair parts and tools in the stock room were a total loss. The officc and office fixtures, recently remedied and installed, were also badly damaged. Accounting book.s were found unharmed when the safe was opened. ■ Among the damaged iurniluro in the office was a radio, which withstood the flames remorkably well but was humed beyond value. Loss Is Covered Ah soon as the insurance company has adjusted the claim for damages, Mr. Sehact will remodel and rebuild the office and stock room, he announcoif. Mr. Schacht is the owner of the building, having acquired it several years ago. In the rear of the garage were a great number of used cars and cars in storage. Most of these were unaffected by the fire, as far as it is now known. 11. F.

A miscalculation in the direc- i tion of fall narrowly cost the old pioneer his life, bringing to his memory a similar incident when he was a boy in Gemany. "I cfln cut down trees and make firewood," said Grandpa Wiegman, "But they won't Jet me drive my car anymore. They say I'm too old." His strength and steadiness while splitting and sawing' the ^ wood are those of the ordinary man of 60. Let's hear from more of such active old gentlemen.Mrs. K.

Defeats S. H. 43-6 Sacred Heart Eleven Gets Lone Touch Down from Heavier Team Two auto damage cases have been disposed of and another wag started on Tuesday morning, Nov. 10, in the present session of the circuit court. Judge James DcLand is presiding. Court was convened on Monday morning, November 2, and the jury was selected for the first case, Hes.senius vs. McAttee, an automobile injury and damage case. Both Hessenius and McAttee make their homes in Laurens. The accident occurred on August 23, 1930, on the Laurens-Mallard road. McAttee drove onto the highway at an intersection and according to the plaintiff's contention drove way beyond the center of the road before he turned down the highway. Verdict for Defendant To avoid a collision with the McAttee car the plaintiff alleged that he was forced to swing his car off the road with the result that the car over turned, and Hesseniu.s' boy rt'cf.'ived a broken arm and injuries to the head, and the other three occupants of the Hessenius car were lacerated an<l otherwise injured. llosHcnius sued McAttee for $785 to cover loss of services and the bill f.)r medical treatment. The plaintiff's contention was that good sportsmanship and common decency obliged the defendant to pay these costs in view of the fact that the accident occured in preventing a collision with the defendant's car who, the plaintiff alleged, was negligent in driving. The defendant plead that he was not the direct cause of the accident and therefore not responsible for damages. The jury was out seven hours after the case had been pre-scnted-Md-fteallr- brooght in a venUet for McAttee, aUowhig no-; ing to the plaintiff.
