Death of Judge Jas. Milner.

Judge James Milner died at his residence in this place on Tuesday morning last, after a long, lingering illness, and he now sleeps with his fathers.  Close upon the heels of his successor in office and his former associate in the practice of law, Judge J. R. Parrott, he follows him into the spirit land.  Judge Milner was a member of the Methodist E. Church South, and had been for many years.  He leaves behind him an affectionate and devoted wife and a train of nine or ten children to mourn his departure.  In the death of Judge Milner the Church loses an active member, the community a good citizen, and the bench and bar an honored practitioner.  His death casts a gloom over the entire community, but they are not without hope that he has gone to reap a rich reward, where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest.  We tender our heartfelt condolence to his grief-stricken and bereaved family in their afflictions.

His funeral was preached at the M. E. Church on Wednesday evening, by Rev. G. R. Kramer, pastor, after which his remains were buried with Masonic honors in the old Presbyterian grave-yard on the Etowah.
