Just a year ago, from all external appearances, Mr. W. A. DUFFEY promised to live as long as any man in Bells. On last Sunday morning at 7:15 o'clock, he quietly went into the beyond, at his home on West Main Street. Mr. DUFFEY was a man of great energy. Starting life a poor boy, by energy and good judgement, he had accumulated quite a good deal of property. At the time of his death he was the senior member of the hardware firm of DUFFEY & SHARP, a firm that has been rapidly coming to be one of the leading firms of the town. A few days before his death, Rev. J. C. CASON held a service in his home and he expressed himself as being prepared for the future, believing his sins had been forgiven. In the presence of a large gathering of relatives and friends, Monday afternoon, at his home, the funeral services were held by Elder A. POTTER, assisted by J. C. W. NUNN. Interment at his farm, known as the Thomas HARRELL place, north of town. Mr. DUFFEY having selected the place about three months ago and requested his wife that he be buried there. He leaves a wife and nine children to mourn the loss of a husband and father, for he was a kind husband and devoted father.
