A Sad Death.

A very sad death many friends will regret to learn of. Mr. Joe Robison after an illness of three weeks passed peacefully away, at his home in Chattanooga, Tenn., on 121 College street, Saturday morning, December 18, 1897. He was forty-five years of age. He leaves a wife and nine children, six boys and three girls, to mourn for him. Mr. Robison married Miss Mary McEnham, of this place. After residing here a while he went to Vicksburg, Mississippi, and after living there quite a while he returned to Rome, Ga., where he ran a livery stable and grocery store. He moved to Chattanooga in 1896, where he was running a livery stable at the time of his death. The best medical attention was given him, but all seemed to be in vain. It seemed that the way of death was the path he should go. He has many friends here who will regret to hear of his death and extend their sympathy to the bereaved family.

And as we lay him down,

We must try to think it for the best.

And as he so peacefully lies,

May God comfort those in trouble,

From on high.

A Friend.
