Charlie Mountcastle Dead!

Our people were shocked yesterday evening about five o’clock by this startling announcement.  His friends were under the impression that his health was undergoing an improvement, and that he soon would be restored from his long spell of sickness.  He has been confined to his room since November with general debility, affection of the lungs, etc., and has suffered much since that time.  He bore his suffering with a wonderful degree of fortitude and when the fatal moment came he was ready to answer the call of his Master.  He was a member of the Methodist church and about twenty-five years of age.  To the stricken family we sympathize deeply and they can console themselves with the fact that none ever met his Maker better prepared than Charlie was.

Charles Wesley Mountcastle, was born in Warrenton, N. C., October 10th, 1856; joined the Methodist Episcopal church, south, at Cartersville, Georgia, in May, 1872, and died at his father’s house in Cartersville, Georgia, on the 31st day of May 1882; aged 25 years 7 months and 21 days.

He was taken sick on the 15th of December last, and grew gradually worse till the day of his death.  He bore his sufferings as only a Christian can, and he was not affrighted when the last enemy of man came, because his confidence was in One who had “robbed the grave of victory and taken the sting from death.”  In his last sickness, he spoke frequently of his companions and friends, and it seemed to be his chief desire that they should meet him in the Bright World to which he was going.  His pure life exemplified what the grace of God shed abroad in the heart could do and his peaceful end showed unmistakably that Christ can give rest and comfort when all earthly help has failed.—A Friend.
