He Breathes His Last Near Cassville Monday Afternoon.

After a sickness of four months, Mr. W. M. Gilbert, a prominent citizen of the Cassville section, died Monday afternoon.  Mr. Gilbert had borne his sufferings silently and passed away as if in a peaceful sleep.

The deceased was a most progressive farmer and his plantation everywhere showed the care and attention of a sound judgment.  Everything about it wore an air of cleanliness and good order that was refreshing.

Mr. Gilbert at the time of his death was near 75 years of age, and has been living in Bartow county for 23 years.  He came here from Jewett, Hancock county, where he had been superintendent of the Jewett cotton factory.  Before the war he was superintendent of Roswell factory, in Cobb county.  When they were burned down by Sherman he went down into Hancock county.

Six children, as well as his widow, bemoan his passing away.  His sons are Mr. Barrington Gilbert, Rockmart; Messrs. Lon and Robert Gilbert, Aragon; Will and Lester, Cassville, and the only daughter, is Mrs. Thos. Gore, Cassville.  The deceased was a mason of long standing, a consistent member of the Methodist church.

The family has the sympathy of a wide circle of friends and neighbors in their bereavement.
