“ Bartow County—Adairsville.”

In the death of Mr. E. B. Earl that occurred at his residence Monday morning at 2 o’clock, this city and the surrounding country loses one of its most prominent and progressive men. He was a close student at the North Georgia college, and evinced a great desire to get the knowledge that his surroundings afford him.

Mr. Earl came from his native county, Floyd, some time in the eighties and taught school very successfully here. After that he sought merchandise as a profession and sold goods for quite a number of years. During this time he was appointed postmaster under Cleveland’s administration. Showing quite a taste for politics, his influence and worth to democracy in his former and adopted home proved of vast aid to the party, and he was easily recognized by true and faithful service given it.

At the age of 38 he has thrown aside the yoke by command of the inevitable, and the trials and vicissitudes, while sweeter songs of the blest calls him over the river.

Tribute if Respect for Elias Ballinger Earl (died June 13, 1893, see previous notice.) Additional information:

“He was born in Floyd county, near Plainville, July 15 th, 1853. He has always lived contiguous to his birthplace. He leaves a wife with us, may she look to us; should she ever be in need or distress. Her maiden name was Agnes Z. McCollum. They had been married about 13 years.

Adairsville lodge, F. A. M., 168, has lost one of her brightest lights. Our chain has had one of its links removed. When we laid his body in our new cemetery his soul had already reached the top of the logical ladder and passed from its earthly labors to its eternal refreshment.”
