T. R. Jackson.
A Young Man of Noble Character and Fine Promise, Dies in Adairsville, After an Illness of Twenty Days.

Six weeks ago there landed in our town a bevy of young men whose business it was to sell a patent churn power. The party consisted of four, of which T. R. Jackson was one. The business was owned and run by the Camp Brothers, of Athens, Ga. By their gentlemanly behavior and straightforward conduct they made friends rapidly, and today they are known and respected by a wide circle of people in and around Cartersville.

About three weeks ago Mr. Jackson went to Adairsville to push the business, in the interest of which he was working, in that community. Shortly after beginning operations in and about that town, he was stricken down with the typhoid fever. Three members of his father’s family have died of the same disease within the past eighteen months. From the day when he was taken sick (twenty days ago,) until he died yesterday, Mr. Jackson received all the care and kindness that devoted and true friends could give him. He was conscious until within five minutes of his death. He was ready and willing to go; he died peacefully and easily; and, we trust, he is now enjoying that better part which cannot be taken from him. His body will be carried to Ashland City, Tenn., where he was born and reared, and where he is to be laid at rest by the side of his brothers and sisters who have gone before.

Our acquaintance with Mr. Jackson was limited, but it was long enough to discover to us that he possessed all those traits and noble attributes that go to make up a splendid manhood.  Genial and generous in his social relations, punctilious and honorable in business matters, rigidly straightforward and careful as to his morals, he made and held friends by the score.

May he rest in peace.  May his lot in the world beyond the grave be that reserved for the good and faithful, for whom all time to come is one eternal happiness.
