Respect For the Dead.

To the Free Press: On my way to Pine Log last Saturday I noticed that the grave yard near Mr. Joseph L. Dysart’s place, known as the Vaughan graveyard, and which has been neglected for years, has been recently cleared off, all the graves being rounded up with fresh dirt and enclosed with a neat plank fence.  Upon enquiry I learned that the neighbors generally assisted in clearing the grave yard, but the most expensive part, the furnishing of lumber and building of the plank fence fell upon the shoulders of four gentlemen, Messrs. J. J. Goode, J. L. Vaughn, J. W. Vaughn and James Vaughn.  These gentlemanly merchants, Messrs. W. T. Harden and A. R. Maxwell, furnished the nails.  There are many good people buried in the Vaughn grave yard, the relatives and friends of the good citizens living near there; and it is hoped that it will now be kept in good repair and that the burden of doing so will be more equally divided in the future.  Respect for the dead carries with it the spirit of Christianity, Messrs. Goode and the Vaughns here saw a good work and deserve the commendation of all good people.
