Death of Miss Addie Farris.

After an illness of only about two weeks, Miss Addie, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Farris, of Cassville, died early Monday morning. All that medical skill and loving hands could do availed nothing, as it was a fatal case of typhoid fever.

Miss Addie was a most loveable young lady and every one who knew her was her friend. Several years ago she professed faith in Christ and ever afterward lived a devoted Christian, and in her last illness the sweet hope of heaven afforded her much joy. On her dying bed she talked and sang of heaven and knew that it was a blessed reality. She believed in God, and in the hour of death she felt the sustaining power of His exceeding great and precious promises, and her spirit was cheered and consoled by the sight of the glorious mansions gleaming through the mists of the dark valley of the shadow of death. She sent for some of her young friends and begged them to meet her in that happy home to which she was going. Her death was a very sad one and those who loved her will miss her; yet they know they will meet her again in the “sweet by and by.”

The funeral services were attended by one of the largest assemblages that ever met on a similar occasion in Cassville. The Baptist church, of which she was a member, was filled. Rev. Charles Wright, of Chattanooga, and Rev. Mr. Calloway, of Dalton, conducted very impressive and solemn services after which the remains were interred in the Cassville cemetery. The whole community sympathize deeply with the bereaved ones.
