A two month old infant of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Layton, living several miles out in the country, died Sunday night. It was interred at Oak Hill Monday.


Messrs. J. W. and Felton Jones left on Monday for LaGrange, where the former was united in marriage to Miss Sallie Quillian yesterday morning.


Mrs. George S. Cobb was summoned to Franklin county last Sunday to the bedside of her mother. Mrs. U. L. Cooper whom the message said was dangerously sick. Mrs. Cobb arrived too late to see her mother in life, she having died at the home of her son at Avalon.


The old building which is being torn down to make room for the new addition to Anderson & Roberts livery stables, is probably the oldest house in Cartersville. It was built in 1848, and was the only house left standing in the block when Sherman carelessly handled the torch in this section.


Little Sammie, the three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. D. R. Gaines, died last Sunday evening, after a very brief illness. Rev. A. J. Jarrell conducted the funeral services at the home on Monday evening, and the remains were interred at the Oak Hill cemetery.
