Death of Arthur Davis.

One of Bartow county’s best and most highly esteemed citizens died at 10 o’clock last Monday night. Many a heart will be saddened at the announcement that Arthur Davis is dead. Two weeks ago last Friday he injured the middle finger on his right hand, it began to get sore and the next day was swollen and very painful. Dr. Calhoun was called in, and found it an aggravated case of erysipelas, and began the usual treatment. But the pain increased, and the flesh gradually sloughed off of his hand until the forearm was affected, and our noble friend died of blood poisoning as above stated.

He was a good citizen, a successful farmer, a kind, indulgent father and a devoted husband. He leaves a wife and three daughters to mourn his loss.

Mr. Davis came to this county soon after the war. He was in his sixtieth year.

The funeral services were conducted by the pastor at the Baptist church, yesterday morning at 11 o’clock and the remains were followed to their last resting place in Oak Hill cemetery, by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends.

The bereaved ones have the sincere sympathy of our entire community.
