Deaths at Kingston.

Mrs. W. T. Bell, wife of the Pastor of the M. E. Church, Dies.

Kingston was greatly distressed Monday morning at the announcement that Mrs. Bell, the wife of Rev. W. T. Bell, pastor of the Methodist church, had died at 6 a. m. It was not a surprise, as she had been quite sick for five weeks. She was a pure good woman and was universally loved by all who knew her. A loving wife, mother, neighbor, and the best of all, a devoted Christian. Her children were all present at her death except one daughter, Mrs. Annie Schenck, of Atlanta; Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Jennings of LaGrange; Howard Bell, of Washington, D. C.; Pierce Bell, of Atlanta; Miss Leila Bell, and the two younger sons, who live at home; two half sisters, the Misses Young of Atlanta. Her remains were brought to Cartersville for interment and quite a number of the friends accompanied the family. Arriving at Cartersville the good citizens met the party with conveyances and carried them to the Methodist church, where the funeral was preached by Rev. H. J. Adams, presiding elder of the Dalton district. From the church a large procession in carriages followed the hearse to the beautiful cemetery where the last sad rites were performed.


I am sorry to announce another death in our little city. Old Mr. Joseph Wood breathed his last at 4 o’clock Tuesday morning at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. F. Wooten, aged 78 years. His remains were conveyed to Stamp Creek for burial in the family graveyard.


Death of Mrs. Bridges.

Mrs. Bridges, wife of Mr. Fort Bridges, died at her home in Atlanta, on last Saturday, and her remains brought to this city for interment, arriving at 10:30 o’clock on Sunday morning. They were carried at once to Oak Hill cemetery, followed by a good number of relatives and friends from the neighborhood, where the deceased formerly resided, about six miles from the city, on the Tennessee road. Mrs. Bridges was the daughter of Mr. Marion Guyton. Her husband is a mechanic connected with the Southern railroad shops. They have lived in Atlanta about six years. Mrs. Bridges leaves besides her husband, two children, one boy and one girl.
