Mr. W. L. Bolt.
Well Known Ex-citizen of Cartersville Dead.

Mr. W. L. Bolt, formerly a well known citizen of Cartersville, died this morning at 4 o’clock at his home, 71 Washington street.  He had been ill for eleven weeks with consumption.

Mr. Bolt was for twelve years a citizen of Cartersville and a prominent jeweler of that place.  Some months ago he moved to Atlanta to open business, but his health gave way and he was forced to abandon his plans.  Soon after he took his bed, from which he was never able to rise.  He passed away very peacefully surrounded by the members of his family.

Mr. Bolt was forty five years of age and leaves a wife and two children, Misses Ola and Willie Mae Bolt.

He was for years a member of the Baptist church, and he was also a mason and a member of the Royal Arcanum.

The funeral will be conducted from the residence, 71 Washington street, tomorrow morning at 10 o’clock, but the arrangements have not all been completed.  The interment will be at Westview cemetery. –Atlanta Journal, Tuesday.

Mr. Bolt lived in Cartersville about twelve years, where he possessed numerous friends to whom the news of his death will cause regret.  He was reared at Anderson C. C. (sic), and has numerous relatives living there.
