A distressing accident occurred on the 4th. Mr. R. H. Dodd’s sons were bathing in the Etowah river, near his house in the 17th district, and his bright little boy, Glover, ten years old, drifted unnoticed from the others into deep water and was discovered sinking and never rose again and was drowned. His body was found late in the afternoon and taken home to his heart broken mother. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. M. Lowry at Oak Grove church on the 5th. The bereaved ones have the sympathy of our entire community.

The pride, the pet of the household has gone, and the bright, beautiful life of Master Hayne Glover Dodd has been obliterated and his spirit is now with the redeemer. He was drowned in the Etowah river on the evening of the 4th, and such sorrow and grief exhibited the loved ones was sad to behold. He was a bright, promising boy and loved by everyone for his sweet disposition and winning ways. The beautiful flower has been plucked by the Master’s hand and transplanted to its heavenly home, where it will be one bright, beautiful flower. The sweet aroma left by its pure, spotless life will ever dwell in the hearts of the bereaved father, mother, brothers and loving friends. To the crushed and broken hearts, we ask our Father to console them, as he alone can. Our heart has been crushed by the same dreadful blow (only a father), yet we have learned to say “thy will be done.” And now, oh God, temper the rude winds of sorrow to their crushed and broken hearts and bring peace to their darkened homes.
