Transcribed by:  

The death of Mrs. Henry D. Capers, of Adairsville, removes from among the living one of the sweetest tempered and exemplary Christian women that adorned and made beautiful the pathway of life.  This world seems very poor when one who made it so attractive to husband, children and friends, is laid away in the grave.  Miss Mary Means, the school girl, gave promise of all the noble qualities, intellectual and spiritual, which ripened and matured in her after life.  She was respected by her teachers, loved by her classmates, and honored by all good people for her gentle spirit, her prompt attention to every duty, her solicitude for the happiness of others and her confidence and trust in Christ Jesus as a loving Savior.  To the living her loss is irreparable; but she was ready to depart and be with Christ.  She rests from her labors.  Her works will survive her.  The tribute of tears and the benediction of bereaved hearts attest her worth.  All who knew her will bless her memory and the beneficiaries of her charities will embalm her name. -- W. H. F.
