Again has the resistless monster, with its cold and iron grasp, visited our community, and found its victim in our esteemed friend EDWARD B. COALSON, who departed this life on 16th ult.  Age 48 years, 1 month and 4 days.

Mr. Coalson came from Brooks county and settled among us last July, and fell a victim to catarrh fever which proved fatal to his mortality.  He was highly esteemed and beloved by all who knew him.  Tho’ his stay was short among us, it was long enough to prove his worthiness as a citizen and his devotedness as a Christian.  He was a member of the Oak Grove Baptist Church where he lived a consistent member until the day of his death, and we believe died in the same faith that had characterized his life, and while we deeply sympathize with his bereaved widow and orphans, we can comfort them by these soothing words, “Sorrow not as those that have no hope.” The very same body that was interred in Cartersville Cemetery will be brought back again in the likeness of “His glorious body,” and that mortality will be clothed with a blessed immortality and crowned with crowns of glory and Honor.

Mr. Coalson had not escaped the scourges of this mortal life.  The unwelcome visitor had invaded his household and borne away two of his tender ones, a loving son of nineteen and a sweet little daughter of two years of age.  Thus we see he had felt the chastening rod of our kind Father, but we hope he was submissive as we all should be, and we hope the irrevocable loss of his family is his eternal gain.  He leaves to mourn their loss, a widow, four sons, five daughters, who have our prayers and best wishes.

While in the tomb our father lies,
His spirit dwells above the skies;
In realm of endless day it lives,
And praises to our God it gives.

Around his brilliant throne in joy,
His daily songs and notes employ,
And in that holy state may we
His friends and orphans one day see.

E. S. V. B.
