Mr. J. C. Kent Dead.

Expires at His Old Home at Covington Monday.

The sad news reached the city on Tuesday of the death of Mr. J. C. Kent, which occurred at Covington, on Monday. Mr. Kent left Cartersville about a week ago for Covington, to spend Christmas at his old home. Having been in bad health for some time, he had decided to close up his business here, and move to southern Texas, where the climate, he had been advised, would be especially favorable to his malady, pulmonary trouble. He had put his stock on the market at cost, and his brother had come up to assist in disposing of the goods during the holidays, and they had been pretty well sold out when the news reached here of Mr. Kentís death.

Mr. Kent came to Cartersville nearly two years ago, an entire stranger. He was quiet in his manner, but those who came to know him were favorably impressed and he made numerous friends to whom the news of his death is a source of regret.

Mr. Kent ran a racket store, and everybody with whom he traded found him correct and pleasant in his business dealings.
