A SAD DEATH
Some days ago, in the telegraphic columns of the daily papers, was a paragraph to the effect
that "Z.F. Buckan, of Fayetteville, N.C.," had been found dead in his room, from an over-dose
of laudanum, in a hotel at Savannah, Ga. At the time we had a premonition of the truth, but
forebore any comment of the paragraph.
The unfortunate man was B. Frank Buchan, of Jackson Springs, Moore County, N.C., who was well
known in this city, having driven his father's wagon into town year after year when a lad. He
was for some time engaged in merchandising at Manly. A more genial, generous, open-hearted man
never lived, and to his wife and family our sincere sympathy is extended.
