Death of Dr. Hamiter.

After an illness of a short duration Dr. Daniel Hamiter died at his home on Market street last Sunday morning and on Monday afternoon his remains were interred in Oak Hill cemetery, a large number of friends joining in to pay the last sad tribute to his memory.

Dr. Hamiter has long been a practicing physician of this city. He came here from South Carolina in his early manhood in 1854, since which time he has continuously resided in Cartersville. He married here, his wife and only daughter surviving him.

Dr. Hamiter was too well known in Cartersville to need any special reference here. He was a man of the kindest and most generous impulses. During his life here as a practitioner he did a vast amount of charity work and many, especially the poorer people, have cause to remember him with gratitude.

No one, whether or not they were able to pay, ever called on him in vain for his services, and no one could be more faithful to a patient than was he. About five years ago he was converted to Christ and joined the Methodist church, since which time he has been a consistent member.

The services at the church Monday afternoon were beautiful and appropriate. Rev. Mr. Ellis delivered a most fitting and just tribute to the life and character of the deceased, after which Mr. Hillhouse made a few appropriate remarks. The service closed with a fervent prayer by Mr. Cooper, after which the remains were borne to their last resting place, followed by a number of friends.
