Ed Hall Dead.
Well Known Cartersville Young Man Brought From Villa Rica.

The relatives here of Mr. James Edward Hall received notice by telegram last Thursday that he was dead at Villa Rica and Mr. Ben Akerman was requested to bring the body to Atlanta, where it was met by his father, J. E. Hall, and his brother, Harris Hall, who accompanied it to this place. The funeral took place Friday from the home, the following friends of the dead young man acting as pall bearers: J. E. Field, Henry Milner, J. E. Wikle, A. B. Harrison, Frank Wallace, G. W. Young.

Ed Hall was a draftsman and carpenter who had few equals.  He had gone to Villa Rica at the instance of Mr. Ben Akerman about six months ago and was at work for the Klondike Mining Company at a good salary, having a large corps of hands under him.  He was much beliked by these and also his employers.  He had not been well for a short while and a cold growing very severe, he feared pneumonia.  On Thursday evening he refused invitations from friends to go out to tea and went to his room at the Askew house to take medicine.  He was seen by the proprietor the next morning at 7 o’clock but said he felt too badly to eat breakfast.  When seen soon after in his room he was dead.
