Bartow loses a Good Man.

Last Monday night, Johnson Adams, of Pine Log, Bartow county, Georgia, died of pneumonia.  Mr. Adams was about sixty years of age.  He was a good man, and had been for long years a consistent and consecrated member of the Baptist church.  His illness was short.  Last week he was in Cartersville, and the bloom of health upon his honest, manly face, did not betoken so early a death.  But he has gone to his long home, and the places and men that have known him so long and well will know him no more forever.

Mr. Adams was very often put upon juries of his county, and his conduct was ever such as to elicit the kindliest and warmest regard of his acquaintances.  In the community of which he was an old member, he was always held in the highest esteem.  He died with no blotch or taint marking his character and his reputation for piety and usefulness.  To his afflicted family we tender our condolence.
