p. 1:3 (In Memoriam. A Tribute of Respect to the Memory of Brother M. L. Gore.) "Brother Mounce Lauderdale Gore was born July 16, 1840, in Jackson County Tennessee, on Roaring River, five miles from Gainesboro. He was raised on the farm and came to Gainesboro, about the year 1866 or 1867, and went into the mercantile business and continued in same for several years. He was elected Circuit Court Clerk in 1874, and served his people with honor and credit for four years. He left Gainesboro and moved back to his farm on Roaring River December 18th 1897, where he lived until his death. In early manhood he linked his destiny with Miss Mary Susan Cassetty, March 22, 1868, by William W. McCue, Esq.. To this union five children were born to-wit: Frank C. Gore, John J. Gore, Annie Gore Sadler, Carrie Gore and Nell Gore, all of whom are living except Annie Gore Sadler, who died May 27th 1903. His wife, who survives him has been like a ministering angel, lighted his pathway through life with love, joy and gladness, until 8:45 o'clock p.m. June 18, 1909, when he peacefully and fearlessly departed this life at his home on Roaring River, age 68 years 11 months and 2 days, leaving a wife and four children to mourn their loss. Brother Gore heard the beautiful story of Jesus and gave his life to him 'Who doeth all things well' joining the Church of Christ in August 1904, and was immersed by Elder Marion Harris.

Our Brother was made a master workman, he being sublimely raised to the third degree about the year 1866 or 67, in Tannehill Lodge No. 133 A.F. and A.M. and was exalted to the August degree of Royal Arch Masonry about the year 1868 at New Middleton Tenn. Brother Gore has filled all the important offices in the Lodge, has been high Priest of of Gainesboro Chapter No. 86 R.A.M. of which he was a Charter Member. . . .

Brother Gore left home as a volunteer private soldier on the 14th day of May, 1861, in his brother William Gore's Company 'K' of Col. A. S. Fulton's 8th Tennessee Infantry Regiment went with his Company and Regiment to Virginia in July 1861. On account of a long hard spell of sickness he was discharged in September 1861. He got home from Virginia and as soon as he regained his health he enlisted a Company of Calvary service which elected him Captain, which position he held as Captain of Company 'G' in Gen'l Geo. G. Dibrell's famous Tennessee Calvary Regiment, which under Dibrell's orders, Gore often commanded. After Dibrell was promoted to Brig. Gen'l, Captain Gore was in command of Dibrells regiment at the time of the surrender in May 1865, and had been in command several months prior to that time and would have been commissioned Colonel if the war had continued a few weeks longer. The necessary recommendations had gone to Richmond to secure his promotion. As a soldier his reputation was that of a man of undoubted courage and high character, but of such modesty was never known to boast of his individual achievements. While a man of plain unassuming manners, he was habitually and naturally polite to all his associates and seemed to have at heart more the comforts of others than his own, but we might say that he could not have been otherwise for these are family traits. As a military man his habits were strict obedience to orders, as a scout to learn the movement or position of the enemy. Gen'l Dibrell was heard to say that Captain M. L. Gore always brought him more satisfactory reports than any other officer he could send out. Although in many hard fought battles and much exposed to the enemies fire he was never wounded nor captured. While Gen'l Dibrell's regiment was under Gen'l Forrest in a calvary fight near Franklin, Tenn., in the latter part of 1862, Gore's horse was killed under him while moving rapidly in a charge. And another was shot under him near the close of the war but not killed. Captain Gore was in what was called the Hundred days fight from Dalton to Atlanta Georgia with Gen'l Johnson's army. Then near the last of 1864 he was at the battle of Saltville, Va., when the Confederates saved the saltworks from Burbridges forces. He was at the battle of Bentonville North Carolina, the last engagement between Johnson and Sherman's armies, on or about the 16th day of April 1865, and right at the last of April or the first of May 1865, Capt. Gore was one of President Davis' escort from Abbeyville South Carolina to Washington Georgia. Capt. Gore commanded Dibrell's old regiment as the escort or part of the escort to the president of the Confederacy. . . .

The funeral services over the body of Brother Gore was conducted by Elder Marion Harris and the Masonic Order from his residence Saturday evening at two o'clock. The body was burried in the family cemetery.

p. 2:3 (J. Brooks Col., Commits Suicide.) "J. Brooks Col., the 15 year old son of Lud Brooks, was found Thursday evening about 3 o'clock on top of the Brooks Ferry Hill just west of town with a bullet hole in his head. The boy left home about 2 o'clock with a rifle not saying where he was going. Shortly after he left his father sent a neighbor boy in search for him. After being gone a short time the boy returned and informed Brooks that he found his son, but that he appeared to be hurt. Brooks then accompanied the boy to where his son was, he being about a quarter of a mile from the house. The boy was found lying in a pool of blood with a bullet hold in his forehead just between the eyes, the rifle he had left home with was lying near him with an empty shell in it. The body was lying on a pile of rocks about 150 yards from the main road and near the road leading from the Brook's Ferry road to the Flynns Lick road.

No reason can be given for the rash act, only that his father had forbid him from going on an excursion which angered him.

An inquest was held over the body late Thursday evening but we go to press too early to learn to verdict of jury, but from what we have gathered it appears to be plain case of suicide."

p. 1:4 (Samuel J. Keith Passes at Home of his Son in Nashville). "Samuel J. Keith, one of the most prominent citizens of Nashville, and one of the best known men in financial and business circles of the city, died yesterday afternoon shortly before 4 o'clock at the summer home of his son, Walter Keith, at Ridge Top. Mr. Keith had gone on a visit to his son Friday afternoon, intending to spend a large portion of the summer there.

At an early hour Saturday morning he suffered an attack of heart trouble, and for a time was seriously ill. During the afternoon, however, he seemed to be greatly improved, and it was thought by his friends that the illness had proven only temporary.

During yesterday afternoon, however, the attack was repeated. Dr. McPheeters Glasgow, a son-in-law of Mr. Keith, and other physicians were present, but medical aid was of little avail, and Mr. Keith died shortly before 4 o'clock. He had not been enjoying vigorous health for some time, but on Friday just before leaving Nashville for Ridge Top, seemed in good health and spirits. . . .

UNUSUAL BUSINESS ACUMEN. Since Mr. Keith has been president of the Fourth National Bank . . . He had been closely identified with many business ventures and financial movements in Nashville since returning to this city from New Orleans in 1875. . . .

Mr. Keith was born in Jackson county Tenn., in 1830. He came to Nashville before he had passed his twentieth birthday, and accepted a position as clerk and salesman for the firm of Morris & Mathews. The firm was in the wholesale grocery business on Market street.

Some time later Mr. Keith left this company and established himself in business, under the firm name of Kirkpatrick, Evans & Keith. This was a wholesale grocery business, and was located on Market street. He continued in this business until the civil war broke out, and during that time was not engaged in active work.

In 1864 Mr. Keith joined the firm of Sperry & Brothers, the firm name being changed to that of Keith & Sperry. He bought the stock of the Sperrys in January, 1865. Disposing of this, he decided to quit the wholesale grocery business. He formed the firm of Kirkpatrick, Keith & Company, commission merchants, and made the headquarters of the business in New Orleans.

September 16, 1865, Mr. Keith married Miss Elizabeth Bell Snyder, the daughter of Captain Bell Snyder, a well known riverman. With his family he moved to New Orleans, the first portion of 1866, and went to work in pushing the interest of his firm there. The concern did a very extensive business, especially in tobacco and cotton.

RETURNS TO NASHVILLE. Returning to Nashville in 1879, Mr. Keith had until time [sic] of his death been extremely active in the business and financial life of the growing city. . . .

Upon his return to this city he was at first connected with the Mechanics National Bank, afterwards severing his interests with this institution and joining his forces with the First National Bank. In 1882 he was elected president of the Fourth National Bank, succeeding Judge James Whitworth. . . .

. . . A sincere, though ostentatious Christian, Mr. Keith was one of the main-stays among the membership of McKendree Methodist church. He had been one of the stewards of the church for many years and was chairman of the official board.

Besides holding other positions of honor and trust, Mr. Keith was a member of the board of trust of Vanderbilt University.

Besides his wife, Mr. Keith is survived by three children, a son, Walter Keith of the Keith-Simmons Hardware Company, and two daughters, Mrs. Percy Madden and Mrs. McPheeters Glasgow. All the members of his immediate family were present at his bedside yesterday. He leaves a number of relatives in Dickson and Jackson counties. . . ." Nashville Tennessean.

Several men who were working in a near-by field reached the house about the same time she did, but they were helpless to rescue the child, as the roof was falling in, and the heat was so intense that it would have meant instant death for them.

The house was an old fashion log house, and there was no flew in the kitchen the stove pipe running up through the ceiling and out the roof.
