Mrs. Ada Franklin Goodwin.

With sadness we chronicle the death of Mrs. H. B. Goodwin, daughter of our estimable fellow citizen, A. M. Franklin, who departed this life on the morning of the 10th inst. at her residence in Powder Springs, Ga.  Not more than a year ago she left our little city of Cartersville as a blooming and happy bride, but alas, her young life has suddenly closed amidst the tears of her friends, and the sorrow and the regrets of a whole community.  Words are too feeble to express her virtues indelibly inscribed upon the hearts of that home circle of which she was the life and joy.  They will long survive the dear girl whose sweet voice and charming face shall greet them no more on earth.  She has been translated, in the beauty of her youth, to the company of the shining ones in heaven.

Under the moonlight, she sleepeth.
She who was young, fresh and gay,
Calm, as its silent radiance,
Type of a brighter day.

Aye weep, and ye pale moonbeams quiver
O’er the grave of the loved and blest,
Heart anguish—soul’s struggles over—
And under the moonlight she’ll rest.
