Mr. A. L. Campbell, who with his family have lived here for the past twenty years had been ill for several weeks, but had not been confined to his room until a day or so before he died Wednesday of last week, April 16. His passing came as a shock to his friends and loved ones.

He is also survived by his wife, five grandchildren, one brother, one halfbrother and two half-sisters.
At eighteen years of age he united with the Lutheran church, but some time after moving to Cliffside, there being no church of his faith here, he united with the local M. E. church in which he retained membership when he died.

Hunnicutt of the local Baptist church, Rev. Keesler, pastor of the Lutheran church at Spartanburg, S. C., and Rev. Roscoe C. Smith, former pastor of the local Baptist church now located at Erwin, Tenn.
A quartet composed of Messrs. H. M. Owens, C. D. Hughes, Chas. Greene and S. L. Thompson sang one number and the choir sang other favorite hymns. The active pall bearers were Messrs. R. E. Carpenter, P. C. Hawkins B. B. Goode, Ed Pruett, J. C. Hames and Dr. H. L. Robertson. The flowers were carried by Mesdames P. C. Hawkins, R. C. Smith, Erwin, Tenn.; R. E.
