Remains Brought to Cartersville for Interment Yesterday. – Buried At Oak Hill.

The remains of Mr. H. C. Beason were brought here from Atlanta yesterday and interred at Oak Hill.

Mr. Beason died at the Grady Hospital, in Atlanta on Monday evening from injuries received several days ago from being thrown from a freight at the yards in Atlanta.  The fall was caused by a jar from cars going together, and as the engine was backing several cars passed over him.  He was carried to the Grady Hospital where his left arm and leg were amputated.

Mr. Beason was one of the most trusted and faithful hands on the road and had been fifteen years in its service.  He resided for about twelve years in Cartersville, moving to Atlanta but recently.  He leaves a wife and six children.
