--long before the era of truck-farming hereabouts,--that early cabbage, which many then said could not be made to “head” in this latitude, could be profitably grown here, and the experience of our truck-farmers of late years abundantly verifies the correctness of his statement.

At the last Fair of our Fish, Game and Oyster Association, held in February, 1894, Dr. Guion was a frequent and an interested atten­dant. Probably his last official act was, as chairman of the judges, to award the prizes in the department of Archaeology at that Fair; and in that capacity, as in every other, he left the pleasant impress upon those with whom he was brought in contact, of his excellent judgment, his great consideration and  unfailing courtesy. It was the privilege of the writer to be associated with him there, and he little thought that so soon would pass peacefully to his rest this warm friend, wise counsellor and honored citizen.  

“He will move onward to the eternal hills,
His foot unwearied, and his strength renewed,
Like the strong eagle’s for the upward flight.”

GRAHAM DAVES.

NEW BERN, N.C.
