Death of Miss Baldwin

While Visiting Mrs. R. M. Patillo She is Stricken Down With Fever.

The death of Miss Sallie Baldwin, of Madison, Ga., at the home of her aunt, Mrs. R. M. Patillo, which occurred last Saturday morning, was indeed a sad one.

It has been a custom for her to spend some time with Mr. and Mrs. Patillo every summer, and for several years, at this season, she has been a charming guest at their pleasant country home, near this city.

She came to Cartersville two weeks ago last Saturday, not feeling well, though it was considered only a slight indisposition which would soon wear off with the change of climate.

She continued this way for about a week, when she was confined to her bed, and a physician sent for who saw at once that she was suffering from fever. She continued to grow worse, and on last Wednesday her mother came up from Madison to attend her, but all the careful nursing and best attention from loving hands could not stay the disease, and death claimed her on Saturday morning, after an illness of only eight days.

Her father, Capt. Chas. W. Baldwin, arrived Saturday morning only a short while after her death, having left his home at Madison before learning the sad news.

Miss Sallie Baldwin was the only daughter of Capt. And Mrs. Charles W. Baldwin, of Madison, and during her visits to her aunt, Mrs. Patillo, made many friends in Cartersville, who deeply sympathize with her parents and relatives in their sad affliction.

The remains were carried to Madison on the 6:32 train Sunday morning, accompanied by the grief-stricken parents and Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Patillo, and were laid to rest in the cemetery at that place.
