Death of an Old Citizen.

Died at his residence in this place on Friday night last at 8 P. M., Mr. B. G. Poole, aged 62 years. The deceased was well known and highly respected by our people. He was one of our oldest citizens, having been a resident of the county thirty-seven years. He was formerly engaged heavily in the iron business and was quite successful. He was born in Union district, S. C., and at the age of four years he removed to Spartanburg where he remained until he was twenty-five years of age, when he removed to Georgia and remaining in our state until his death. He had been suffering with a complication of diseases for several months and his death was not unexpected. In his demise Bartow county has lost a good and noble citizen strictly honest and upright in all his dealings. He was a loving husband and doting father, and to his bereaved family we offer our heartfelt condolence.
