Editor Darley Died in Lyons

Lyons and community was shocked last Thursday morning by the announcement of the death of Mr. C. T. Darley, editor of the Lyons Progress. Mr. Darley was stricken at a late hour Wednesday night, but did not regain consciousness.

Mr. Darley had been in charge of the Progress since spring, having moved to Lyons from Douglas. He is survived by his wife, two sons and two daughters, his sons being Claude Darley of Douglas and Fleetus Darley of Lyons, associated with him on the paper.
The daughters are Mrs. Margaret Thomas of Allendale, S. C., and Miss Mary Darley of Lyons. He was a native of Montgomery county, but had not resided in this county for many years.

Mr. Darley was a member of the Baptist church and was an earnest and faithful worker in the Masterís vineyard. He was also a member of the Masonic fraternity.

Remains were interred in the Lyons cemetery Friday afternoon, the service being conducted by Revs. A. D. Woodle of the Baptist church and Theo Pharr of the Methodist church.

He was prominently identified with the better interest of his town and section, and his going away will be a loss to his town and county. Men of his type are never fully appreciated. He was very quiet in manner but had all the characteristics of a gentlemen.
