“Doings in Bartow—Kingston.”

Saturday morning I was informed that the grim monster death had called about four o’clock a. m., and claimed Miss Eva Rollins, the bright lovable little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Rollins. She had suffered about three weeks with typhoid fever. Eva took a part in the services of children’s’ day at the Methodist church, and after the services were closed, she was received as a member of the M. E. Church South, by her pastor, Rev. J. J. Ansley, and twenty days afterwards her sweet spirit took its flight to heaven, and her body was committed to the silent tomb, Rev. J. J. Ansley conducting the services at Kingston cemetery at six p. m., June 25th, and she laid by the side of her sister, Pearl, who preceded her September 25th, 1866. Eva was 13 years of age. She was a great favorite with all who knew her; a smile and pleasant word for everyone. She was a constant pupil at Sunday school and was ever ready with a good lesson, and when required at extra services, always ready with recitations and sweet songs. I had the pleasure of being a member of the same Sunday school and my attention has often been called to notice the sweet Christian character of Eva Rollins. Our entire community tenders their heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved ones.
