Two Deaths At Emerson.
Mrs. James Chadwick and William E. Corbin Pass Away.

Mr. WILLIAM E. CORBIN, of Emerson, well and favorably known throughout this section, died while on a visit to his sister in Acworth Friday of last week, where he had gone the Saturday before.  Mr. Corbin, with his brother-in-law went out to the latter’s fish pond and while there became suddenly ill.  He had arrived there that day and intended to return to his home in Emerson the following day.  Upon becoming sick he remained there until he died.  The physicians in attendance pronounced his disease as pneumonia fever.  He had not been in the best of health for some time and fell an easy prey to this fearful disease.  He leaves a wife and five little children to mourn his loss.  Mr. Corbin was about forty years of age and was a year or so ago the bailiff of the Emerson district.  He was buried at Emerson.

MRS. JAMES CHADWICK, 58 years of age, after many months of sickness died Thursday of last week.  She was a member of the Baptist church, a most excellent woman, and her grief stricken husband has the sympathy of his many friends.  She left no children.  Interment was at Emerson cemetery.
