Death of Prof. E. C. Mobley.

Hogansville, Ga., August 2.—The funeral of Mr. E. C. Mobley, who died here Saturday morning, took place yesterday from the Methodist church, and was attended by a large gathering of friends and relatives.

Mr. Mobley was twenty-nine years old, and was a young man of unusually bright mind and noble character.

He graduated with high honors at Emory college in 1885, and soon became prominent as an educator, teaching first at Cartersville, and then in the public schools of Atlanta, where he was principal of the Ivy street school.

About two years ago he gave up teaching on account of his health and went to Cedartown, Ga., where he was in business till last spring. He had only been in Hogansville about ten days when his fever suddenly took a violent form, resulting in death.

The unexpected loss of such a young man leaves many sad hearts among his friends and acquaintances throughout the state.—Atlanta Journal.

The above announcement will be sadness to the people of Cartersville, among whom he had many warm friends and admirers. Mr. Mobley lived here for two years, and was during that time assistant principle of West End Institute.

He was a fine teacher, and a young man of splendid abilities, and possessed many noble qualities that won for him friends wherever he went.
