MR. H. A. Johnson Dead.

Our community was saddened last monday morning when the message came announcing the death of Mr. H. A. Johnson, which occured at the home of his sister, in Camden, S. C., Sunday night at 11 o’clock. Mr. Johnson up to a few months ago was the popular drug gist at Mr. J. D. Morris’ drug store, and by his courteous manners and amiable dispoition won the confidence and high esteem of all who came in contact with him. He left here in May, hoping to regain his health, but he continued to grow worse and when he came bck in August it was plain to his friends that he could not live long, but none realized the end was so near. He left here about two weeks ago for the home of his sister.

We do not believe we exagerate in the least when we say that no young man ever came to Roxboro a stranger made more friends than did Mr. Johnson in the few years he lived among us.

To his bereaved brother and sister we extend our deepest sympathy. Truly a noble young life has gone out.
