Simons Bro. & Co. made a hit at the recent convention by presenting to each delegate a handsome little gold souvenir Delta Upsilon monogram pin. Mr. Clegg, the active and pleasant representative of Simons Bro. & Co., was at the convention and did a flourishing business. The pins which he had on exhibition certainly were beauties.

this little brush is the only piece I have which is made by Simons. Two years ago I wrote to the company asking for name of the pattern and date of production but got no answer.

Thomas Maddock, a traveling representative for Simons, Bro. & Co. for the past 55 years, is dangerously ill at his home. Mr. Maddock, who is familiarly and affectionately known throughout the southern territory as “Uncle Tom,” had endeared himself to all those with whom he came in contact. His wife, who was quite as popular and as well known in the south as Mr. Maddock, died a few years ago, and since that time “Uncle Tom” has been fast losing ground. Mr. Maddock has not traveled for his firm for the past four years, but has been active at the office until last Spring, when about that time he was forced to give up his work indefinitely. Although Mr. Madock is a little past 84 years his many friends are hopeful for his speedy recovery and his resumption of his old duties.

Deceased was but thirty-eight years of age, and his death was due to a complication of diseases. The funeral services will be held at his late home in North Wales today.
