Brought Home for Burial.

On Wednesday of last week all that was mortal of J. V. Owen was taken from the train in Cartersville and carried to his home in the 17 th district for interment.

Mr. Owen was a young man about twenty-two years of age and left his home in the 17 th district of Bartow county November 15 th for Orlando, Fla., where he intended to locate. He had secured work from an orange grower, near that place, and was hitching a pair of Texas ponies to a wagon for the purpose of going into the grove to gather oranges. While fastening the trace one of the horses, a vicious animal, kicked him a tremendous blow in the breast. He was picked up by another young man who was working with him, and carried to town, for medical attention, but expired shortly after his arrival a little more than an hour after he was kicked.

He was a son of Mrs. Mary Owen of this county.
