Mrs. Charles Collins.

A peculiarly sad death was that of Mrs. Charles L. Collins, which occurred at her home on Gilmer street on Saturday night last at about 10 o’clock. She had been in good health up to Tuesday of last week, when she was seized with a cold. It developed to a troublesome and stubborn stage rapidly and despite all usual remedies applied lingered to torture. Saturday pneumonia symptoms were developed and her physicians becoming alarmed, notified her relatives that the outlook in her case was serious. She grew worse, despite all attention and effort given her, and died at the time above stated.

Mrs. Collins was formerly Miss Mattie Bufford Bradley, the daughter of Mr. Joseph Bradley, one of the most popular citizens of Bartow county. She was married to Mr. Charles L. Collins in August of last year. The married life of the young people was as happy as could be. They seemed well suited to each other and their young lives blended in one vein of harmonious bliss.

Mrs. Collins was an exceptionally bright and companionable lady, possessed of all traits that made the loveable, good wife. She leaves besides her husband an infant four months old.

She was a member of the Baptist church at Cross Roads and lived scrupulously up to her Christian duties.

Her funeral occurred from the home Sunday evening and was one of the saddest that has occurred in Cartersville in many a day. The services were conducted by Rev. A. H. Buford, by whom she was baptized and Rev. W. H. Patterson. A large concourse of friends followed the remains to their last resting place in Oak Hill cemetery.
