A Tragic Death

W. B. Reynolds Falls down a Cliff Seventy-Five Feet. (Rome Argus).

William B. Reynolds, second son of Capt. J. H. Reynolds, of this city, came to a tragic death last Sunday morning at White Cliff, Tenn. He was with a party of ladies and gentlemen, who are summering at White Cliff on Chilhowee mountain, and while standing on the edge of the cliff, it is supposed that he succumbed to an attack of vertigo and losing his balance he fell over the precipice. The body rebounded and continued falling to the foot of the cliff, a distance of about 75 feet.

Members of the party hastened back to the hotel where his parents, elder brother and three sisters have also been spending the summer. Assistance was quickly rendered, and the body of the youth was found with the back of the skull crushed.

The body was brought to Rome on the special train over the Southern arriving here, Monday at 11:40 a. m.

The funeral services took place Tuesday morning at 9:30 o’clock.

The death of this bright young man, is a sad blow to our city, and his bereaved parents and relatives have the sympathies of the people of Rome.
