Cartersville Census.

As sworn to, the population of Cartersville is 2,038.  The number of inhabitants put down in the census report ten years ago was 2,232, a loss of 194.  This dropping off is accounted for thusly: A survey made since the last report cut off Mechanicsville, a suburban town, and a number of families living at that time within the corporate limits.  Within the last year there were forty-eight deaths in the town—making the mortality 2 ½ percent.  1 ½ percent of this whole amount was among the colored people and the remaining one percent among the whites.  In Cartersville there are 409 dwelling houses, 429 families and sixteen farms within the corporate limits, varying in size from twenty to 140 acres.

The mortality showing of our town is large and can be accounted for by quite a number of accidents, still births and parties who were not citizens dying in our midst of diseases contracted elsewhere.
