W.M. Rhodes, one of the best known railroad men in Cartersville, and a native of Bartow county, died Saturday, September 22, at his home on Douglas street, after an illness of several weeks.

Mr. Rhodes was born 52 years ago at Folsom in this county and has lived in Cartersville about twelve years. He was a locomotive engineer and a member of the Brotherhood, to whose interests he was devoted. He was a faithful employee of the railroad and a thoroughly efficient engineer. He had a wide acquaintance and a large circle of personal friends. "Mac" Rhodes, as he was familiarly called by all who knew him, had a companionable nature and a sunny disposition which attracted all who came in association with him.

Mr. Rhodes was a member of the Baptist church and to this denomination he gave loyal support and furnished a consistent christian life.

Surviving him are his widow and two daughters, Addie Emma and Gladys.

The funeral services were conducted at the East Side Baptist church and congregated there on Sunday afternoon wth hundreds of friends, the church auditorium being unable to hold all who came to pay tribute. Rev. A.F. Smith conducted the services, assisted by Rev. McCollum and by Rev. Bond, and the remains were interred at Oak Hill cemetery.
