Charles Douglass, a very worthy colored citizen and a faithful and trusty truckman at Kingston depot, died last Friday morning, May 14th, at 6 o’clock. He was only confined to his bed one day. His trouble was inflammation of the stomach. Everyone expressed sorrow that Charley is gone. J. M. Davidson, railroad agent, speaks of him as an honest man; had him in his employ for 15 or 16 years and never found him guilty of a dishonest act. The colored people have an Odd Fellows lodge here, and he was buried by the lodge Saturday, May the 15th. The ceremony was very solemn and imposing.
