Sad Death of a Well Known Presbyterian Minister.

Rev. W. A. Milner, of Summerville, died last Friday and his remains were brought to this city and interred on Monday.

Mr. Milner died after an attack of nervous prostration produced by overwork and study.

He was a man of great firmness and a minister of extreme piety and zeal and was influential in the councils of his church in the Presbytery and Synod. He was greatly beloved by the people of his section. He went through the war being under Capt. Leake in cavalry.

Mr. Milner was a son of Rev. Richard A. Milner, a consecrated useful preacher, who served the church here in years agone. Mr. Milner was reared here, and after he fitted himself for the ministry went to Summerville twenty-five years ago, where the whole of his ministerial life has been spent. He was in his 52d year.

He was the brother of Judge T. W. Milner, Mrs. C. M. McEwen and Mrs. S. F. Milam, of this city. He leaves a wife and two children, who survive him.

The funeral took place from the Presbyterian church. The services were conducted by Revs. Geo. T. Coctchius, of Rome, Patton, of Marietta, and John T, Norris, of this city.

Tributes to His Memory by Cartersville and Summerville Masons.

[A Very long tribute of respect—see earlier notice of death. An excerpt: “He was summoned by the Grand Master, February 5, 1897. He was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason December 5m 1874. He was in deed and in truth a Mason, serving his Lodge faithfully as Chaplain, loving, upright, just and true. Always keeping his passions in due bound, squaring his actions by the square of virtue, and walking upright as the plumb before God and man. He was married to Miss Ella W. Cochrane and has a son and daughter all of which survive him.”]
