JOHN BANKS HARE , aged 17 years, 7 months and 29 days, only son of Lem L. Hare and wife died at the family home near Alberton Friday morning about 11 o'clock from the affects of a malady pronounced by three physicians to be cerabrospinal meningitis. His sickness dated from Saturday morning and at the very outset his condition was critical. All the members of the family were summoned to his bedside and three local physicians were in constant attendance. Dr. J.W. McClaran, bacterioloist in the Crook Sanatorium of Jackson, was sent for and pronounced the disease cerebrospinal meningitis. The family and entire community sustained a shock such as has not been experienced in some time when the promising young man breated his last. The third child of his parents, he was born August 8, 1895, and was just budding into young manhood, being at the time of his death a student in the Henderson County High School and the pride, and hope of the fond parents. Possessing a jolly, active courteous, manly disposition, he was respected by his elders and beloved by his schoolmates and young associates. Obedient and thoughtful to his parents and affectionate with his sisters, they loved him with immeasurable affection. To his uncles and other relatives, he was none the less endeared. Although never having attached himself to a church, he left sufficient evidence to his devoted mother and those who knew him best of thorough preparation for death and from this fact is drawn abiding comfort and the precious assurance that though he cannot come back to them, they can go to him in that Heavenly land where parting is not known. Funeral services were conducted Saturday afternoon in the Hare Graveyard near C.T. Robert's residence by Rev. Fleetwood Ball. On account of a strict quarantine placed upon the family by Dr. R.H. Davidson, County Physician only those were present at the burial who were with the lad at death, except the officiating minister.

DEWITT HUBBS - A clipping from a paper published in Tucson, Arizona, sent to John W. Stewart, by his father-in-law, Rev. V. Pafford, gives particulars of the finding of the body of a man supposed to be DeWitt Hubbs, of Nashville, who evidently had committed suicide with a pistol, in the mountains of Tucson, the remains and pistol having been found by a fourteen-old boy. It had been thought that the man was the same who taught school here several years ago, but the description of a man about 45 years old and weighing but 145 pounds hardly suits the man who is well remembered here. However, later information leads to the belief that the suicide was the man who taught here. In the pocket of the dead man was one letter, a postal card and a legal document, the latter the unsigned will of his wife from whom he was separated, Mrs. Mary P. Hubbs of Nashville. A. E. Markam, of Nashville, a brother-in-law of the wife, was named as executor of the will and three children, Belle, Mary Neville and Harris, were named in the will which bequeaths to them a life interest in more than 1,500 acres of land near Nashville. The will was dated July 9, 1914.
