Death in Adairsville.

Died in Adairsville on Thursday March 27th, Carrie Cunningham, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Cunningham, aged 21 years. She was buried in the Oothcaloga Baptist church cemetery. An all wise Being thought best to call her away just as she was blooming into fullness of life. Her health had been on decline for some time, but she was confined to her room for only a few weeks before her death. She bore her sufferings with patience and sweet submission to the will of God. She professed religion about three weeks before she died and was happy in a blessed Savior’s love. Her hopes grew brighter as she neared the eternal city. She knew she had to die and talked of it a great deal. She told some of her associates who were yet in their sins, to never put off preparing for death so long as she had done, and admonished those who did profess to let their light shine and work for Jesus. We can say that our loss is her gain and that she now is resting safe in the arms of Jesus. Our heartfelt sympathies are with the bereaved family. –Puella.
