D. E. Thomas died Wednesday about noon from injuries sustained earlier in the morning in a fall alighting from a moving automobile, his remains being interred Thursday in the Spur Cemetery.
Funeral services were conducted at the church, after which the Odd Fellows took charge of the body and with their impressive ceremony assigned it to its last resting place.
D.E. Thomas was an old ex-confederate soldier, and in earlier days rendered real service to his country. He was a good man, and his sudden and unexpected death in this manner is deplorable and will be sincerely mourned by many friends throughout the country.
