    Eld. J.H. THOMAS filled his regular appointment at Elm Grove Sunday, but on account of the intolerable roads no services were held that eve (sic) at the church, but at the home of B.N. CALLAWAY's instead, where quite a number gathered and a profitable service was conducted by the pastor.
    One of our aged and worthy citizens passed to rest last Wednesday Feb. 24, in the person of Uncle Joe PAGE.  He had suffered for several days from a complication of lagrippe and other troubles.  He leaves a wife and several grown children and a host of sorrowing friends.  His remains were interred in the Catholic cemetery at Troy, as he was a Catholic in faith.
