Death of West Point Citizen.

A telephone message received here Monday conveyed the sad intelligence of the death of Mr. J. L. Askew, a prominent druggist of West Point. Mr. Askew was well known here and his friends were shocked by the news of his death. Dr. W. C. Bledsoe left yesterday morning for West Point to assist in conducting the funeral.
