We inadvertently failed sooner to notice the death of Col. John W. LOVE, of Denmark, on the 1st of August.  Col. LOVE was one of the oldest citizens of Madison county, having settled where he died, many years ago; and it is no more than a just tribute to his worth, to say that he was an upright citizen, an honest man and a sincere christian.  He had been for many years a ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church at Denmark, and the members of that church, as well as of the whole community feel the heavy loss they have sustained.  He had attained the full period allotted to man on earth, and died full of years, at the age of seventy.
