|Annual 4-H Club Contest and Rally Success Saturday|
Exhibits of Vegetables, Fruits and Needlework Unusually Good
Prize Winners Are Announced
Work Has Been in Progress for Eleven Years with Constant Improvement
The Annual 4-H Club Contest and Rally Day held in the court house Saturday was a success from every angle, and proves conclusively that not only the young girls, to whom prizes were awarded for their excellent work in domestic affairs, but the young boys who vied with each other in the production of corn, etc., are doing excellent work. The exhibits of canned vegetables and fruits were exceptionally fine and the needle and art work caused favorable comment by those who made an inspection of the display.
Eleven years ago the first home demonstration club was started in Gadsden county by a few ladies of the town and country who conceived the idea and brought it forth into a reality; it has proved a success and has been of great benefit to the entire county. With each succeeding year the exhibits have become larger, with a corresponding improvement in the articles placed on exhibition. The following girls received prizes Saturday:
First Year Sewing
Second Year (Sewing)
Third Year (Sewing)
Fourth Year (Sewing)
First and Second Year Canning
Third and Fourth Year (Canning)
Boys' Corn Club
Boys' Pig Club
After the awarding of prizes the 4-H Club girls were escorted to the Enterprise theatre, where as guests of the management, they saw Buck Jones in the Hills of Peril, a Western actor that never fails to interest the old and young folks.
A picture of the 4-H girls was secured in a group from which plates will be produced in the future and published in the papers.
Every section of the county was well represented by the old and young folks, and nothing occurred to mar the pleasure of the annual meeting of friends and acquaintances, and with freedom and hospitality of Quincy it was a glorious day for all who were here.
Addresses were delivered by J. Lee Smith, Gainesville, district agent for the work of boys' clubs; Judge E. C. Love, and Supt. C. H. Gray, of the Gadsden county schools. Their talks were interesting and made an impression upon the girls and boys that will be of much assistance in their future endeavors. Miss Elise Laffite, county instructor, was highly complimented for the excellent work she has accomplished among the girls and housewives in Gadsden county. She has been untiring in her efforts, and the exhibits shown Saturday are a testimonial that her work has not been in vain.
Miss Barton, of Greensboro, who directed the singing, brought the boys and girls up to almost perfection in rendering several selections of club songs.
|Death Lindsey Smith
Several from here attended the funeral service of Lindsey Smith Thursday at Flat Creek. Mr. Smith was well thought of by all who knew him. He was a loving father and a faithful husband. He was first united in marriage with Lilla Tolar, who passed away several years ago, leaving four children. Later he married Alma Fletcher, and leaves a wife and five children to mourn their loss, besides others who are closely related. He was laid to rest in the Flat Creek cemetery on Thursday afternoon, September 30. Rev. S. T. Matthews, of Quincy, conducted the funeral services. His death leaves a vacancy in his home, which can never be filled.
|Family Row Ends in Killing Near Havana
Isaac Moore, colored, almost decapitated the head of Ernest Knight, a brother-in-law, at Havana Sunday night about 11 o'clock over a trivial family dispute, it is said by withnesses. The two men were employed and lived on the Shelfer & Ellinor farm about two and a half miles southwest of Havana. Pocket knifes were the weapons used in the deadly combat, both having "keen kutters." Isaac, however, using his knife with more precision, and getting the first whack sent Ernest to the green grass with a severed jugular vein, where he expired in a few minutes. Isaac received a severe scalp wound from the knife of Ernest Knight and bled profusely, and had it not been for prompt medical attention it is thought the wound which he received would have proved fatal.
Sheriff Gregory arrived on the scene soon after the tragedy occurred and placed Isaac Moore under arrest, but his condition was thought to be too serious for him to be removed and placed in jail and he was held under guard until it was determined that the wound which he received would probably not be fatal. He was brought to Quincy Monday and lodged in jail, where he will be held for trial at the circuit court, which convenes in Quincy on the fourth Monday in October.
Justice W. B. Greer held an inquest over the body of Ernest Knight Monday and the jury returned a verdict that he came to his death through a knife wound inflicted by Issac Moore, who was held charged with murder.
|Vacates Pants When Rattler Hooks Up
John Rudd, who lives nine miles southwest of Quincy, was slightly alarmed Tuesday of last week while breaking corn when he found that he was "towing" a giant rattlesnake.

Mr. Rudd finally got the rattler under control and regained his pants. The reptile was over five feet in length and carried a collection of eight rattles.

J. H. Belyeu, aged citizen of Quincy died at his home on King street early Saturday morning, death coming at 3:15 o'clock. The cause of his death was given as senility. Mr. Belyeu had been in declining health for the past several years and the end was not unexpected. He was born April 25, 1853, and at the time of his death was approaching his seventy-fifth milestone.
The remains were carried to Chipley Sunday afternoon and were interred in a cemetery there at 3:30 o'clock, services being in charge of Rev. F. J. Patterson, pastor of the Quincy Methodist church, of which deceased was a member. Today his body rests alongside that of his son, O. C. Belyeu, who was killed while on transport duty with the U. S. Navy during the World War.
Mr. Belyeu was well and favorably known in Quincy, Gadsden county and elsewhere. He was respected by all who knew his simple, rugged honesty and steadfastness of principles. His passing cast a shadow over a large circle of relatives and friends.
Mr. Belyeu was a well-known figure in the Quincy business world up until three years ago when he disposed of his mercantile business to his son and retired.
There were born to Mr. and Mrs. Belyeu twelve children, of whom eleven survive. With Mrs. Belyeu they are, daughters, Mrs. G. M. Thornhill, Barwick, Ga.; Mrs. M. D.

|C. Henderson Dies at His Quincy Home--Burial in Mobile, Ala.
After an illness of many months, C. Henderson, 44, died at his home in this city Tuesday forenoon at 10 o'clock. Bright's disease was the cause of death, but a stroke of paralysis three weeks ago hastened the end.
The body was taken to Mobile Wednesday morning, where burial was made that afternoon. Funeral services were held at the home Tuesday evening, with Rev. F. J. Patterson officiating, assisted by Rev. D. J. Blackwell.
Mr. Henderson is survived by a widow and one sister, Mrs. Kate Stimpson, of Mobile.
Prior to coming to Quincy to engage in the real estate business two years ago Mr. Henderson had for many hears been in the lumber business in Mobile. He was a business man of marked ability, a man of broad reading who had traveled extensively and was well informed on a variety of subjects. For the past year Mr. Henderson had been secretary of the Gadsden County Chamber of Commerce, in addition to attending to his personal interests. In his capacity as secretary, a position in which he had had no particular training, his knowledge of business principles and organization enabled him to accomplish much work of a constructive nature of Quincy and Gadsden county at the minimum of expense. It was largely through his efforts that the organization succeeded in having the federal government establish a motor mail route between Quincy and Bristol, in Liberty county. He cooperated with the West Florida Poultry Association in enlarging its scope and was secretary of the association. The movement to organize a credit association of business men in Gadsden county had its inception in his active mind. Many other accomplishments of a constructive and helpful nature are numbered among the achievements of Mr. Henderson during his residence here.

|In Memoriam - Mrs. Orion O. Barber
Mrs. Orion O. Barber was the daughter of Carroll and Sarah Johnson, and was born in South Florida on January 9, 1847. She was married to Jordan Barber in 1877. She joined the Baptist church when she was about 22 years old, and remained a member through her long life. She had lived in Concord, Florida, practically all her life, and formed, and was well known, by a large circle of kindred and friends, meriting and holding their high esteem through all the years. She had only two children born to her and these died when very young.
She had lived "four score years and ten." 80 years, 8 months, 16 days, being her exact age. Nearing the end of her earthly pilgrimage, she realized she could not remain much longer here among us, but awaited with confidence and a willingness to go, the final farewell. Her mortal remains were committed to the silent tomb in the Concord cemetery to lie in dust until the resurrection morning.
Funeral rites were conducted by Rev. S. N. Burns, pastor of the Methodist church in Hinson, Fla., assisted by Rev. W. J. Gray, also
