Prof. Carney Dead.
He Passes Quietly Away at 2 O’clock Yesterday.

Prof. H. C. Carney died yesterday evening at 2 o’clock, after a brief illness.  He had been confined to his room for several days with a slight attack of pneumonia, but not until Saturday night did the symptoms of the disease create any serious alarm, when he began to grow worse, and Sunday morning he was thought to be dying.  But he rallied in the afternoon and night and on Monday he was considered a great deal better.  Yesterday morning he grew much worse until 2 o’clock, when he died.

Prof. Carney came to Cartersville from Oxford during the summer and took charge of East Cartersville Institute.  Since his arrival in our midst, he has won many friends and was universally popular among our people.  He was a man of ability and culture.  He was a fine teacher, thoroughly competent, of advanced and progressive methods.  His death is a great loss to our community.  His remains will be carried to Oxford for interment.
