We were really grieved and humiliated upon a recent visit to our Town Cemetery, to witness its dilapidation.  Unenclosed, and grown up in bushes and briars.  The stock roam at large through its sacred precincts and over the graves, leaving their foot-prints upon them.  Surely our Council will have it enclosed, if they can do nothing more.  They can do that much, and it will be a means of protection against the inroads of the brute creation.  It should be enclosed and cleaned off, if nothing more can be done.


The Brick House and Lot known as the Jas. M. Lackey property, on Tennessee street, near Car Factory, will be sold at a bargain.  One of the most desirable places in Cartersville.  Terms easy.
For further information apply to John W. Wofford or John H. Wikle.
