The death of Rev. Habersham J. Adams at St. Louis a week ago causes much regret in Cartersville where he was well known having served the Methodist church as pastor here.  He was for forty-three years a member of the North Georgia Conference.

To Be Interred Thursday.
Body of Rev. H. J. Adams Will Arrive Wednesday.

Atlanta Constitution.

The body of Rev. H. J. Adams, the well known Methodist minister who died several weeks ago at the residence of relatives in St. Louis, will arrive in Atlanta tomorrow afternoon or night.  Miss Nettie Adams, his daughter, and other relatives will accompany the body.  Miss Adams telegraphed friends in Atlanta yesterday of the funeral arrangements.

The body will leave on an early train for Oxford, Ga., where funeral services will be held and the body committed to its last resting place.  Dr. Adams was the brother-in-law of Dr. Stiles, of this city, and was well known throughout the entire state.

He was for forty-three years a member of the North Georgia conference and was at one time presiding elder of the Atlanta district.  His last charge was in Conyers, but from this he was forced to retire on account of his feeble condition resulting from old age.  He had reached the age of seventy-one years when death came, and had left his church in Conyers only a few weeks before.

Since his death several weeks ago, the body of Dr. Adams has been in a vault in a St. Louis cemetery.
