Once more the shadow of death hovered over our little city, and another of our pioneer citizens, an honorable man, a Christian gentleman, kind parent and a fond husband, W. E. Bone, has paid the last debt of nature. Of a quiet and retiring disposition, his many qualities were known only to the select few who gathered about him. None knew him but to respect, none neared him but to love.
