|Michigan Man Buys Farm at Concord
F. B. Ayres, of Jackson, Mich., who has been prospecting in south and west Florida for the past six weeks seeking location, purchased on Tuesday a twenty acre tract near Concord. Mr. Ayres has been in the Havana neighborhood for the past few weeks studying the soils and the adaptability of east Gadsden county as a truck and poultry production center. He is an experienced farmer and has been engaged in general farming and poultry raising on his Michigan farm. He bought his new farm because of hard, cold winters of the north and the greater attractiveness of the longer growing season of Gadsden county.
Mr. Ayres will return in October to take up active operation, returning to Michigan to dispose of his interests in Jackson.

|In Memoriam Albert Galveston Flake
Albert Galveston Flake was the son of Appleton Augustus and Bertha Eugle Flake, and was born near Havana, Florida, and what was then the Old Salem Methodist church in Gadsden county, on the fourth day of August, 1850. He was first (married) to Elizabeth Woodberry, a sister of Jonah and Hunter Woodberry. To them were born eight children, Thomas, Annie, who died in girlhood, George, Hattie M., Elizabeth, Albert, Pratt and Florrie. His first wife having died, he married Mary Dyke. To them was born a son, Iva G. Flake. Brother Flake joined the Methodist church at, or near, the age of eighteen. He died from apolexy on the morning of January 20, 1927. His age was seventy-six years, five months, and sixteen days.
During all these years he held and merited the esteem of his kindred and fellow-citizens as an honest, truthful, honorable and upright citizen.
His general deportment characterized his life as a Christian. What foibles or imperfections he may have had, if any, either in his life or conduct, he most sincerely deplored.
When speaking in seriousness and to purpose among the last things he said to me expressed his great, strong and fervent desire that no impure or unholy thought should ever engage his mind. He craved and strove to be ready for this the final change of his mortality, and the closing scene of his earthly career.
A large company of friends and relatives gathered at New Bethel Methodist church to attend the funeral service and burial. The service was conducted by his pastor, Rev. S. N. Burns, assisted by Rev. F. J. Patterson, pastor of First Methodist church in Quincy, and Rev. W. J. Gray, a friend and former pastor of the deceased.
