After Many Months of Suffering, Mr. Moses Scheuer Dies in Baltimore.

Mr. Moses Scheuer, for many years a prominent Cartersville merchant, died at a sanitarium in Baltimore, Md., whither he had gone a few months ago.

Mr. Scheuer has spent much of his time for the past three or four years abroad in endeavoring to recuperate his wretched health, and when he returned from Germany over a year ago, it was thought that he was going to recover.  He had not been long at home before it was seen that he was again failing, and back to Germany he went, Mrs. Scheuer and the children going also.

Several weeks ago he was returning home and had gotten as far as New York when it was determined that his condition did not warrant his continuing the trip much further, and he was carried to a sanitarium in Baltimore for treatment.

It was only ten days ago that his youngest brother, Mr. Max Scheuer visited him and found him in cheerful spirits and talking hopefully of his future.

Tuesday morning Mrs. Scheuer received a telegram that he was very low.  She and Mr. Max Scheuer left on the first train.  During the day a telegram was received that the long and patient sufferer had died.

Mr. and Mrs. Isadore Scheuer came over from Cedartown and Wednesday morning he went down to Atlanta to arrange for the funeral and interment in the Jewish cemetery there today.  The remains are expected in Atlanta this morning and many Cartersville people will go down.

Mr. Scheuer was born in Heidelsheim, Germany, forty-four years ago, next October.  He came to America and immediately to Cartersville in 1876, and entered the dry goods establishment of Liebman Bros.  He made friends from the start and during his residence here was popular with the people.  About 12 years ago he was elected alderman, serving two terms, and during his service the water works, gas and public school systems were inaugurated.  He was a live member of the city council and was always hoping and helping in the matter of Cartersville’s welfare.  He was a mason and will be buried with Masonic honors.  He leaves a wife and four children who have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends.  He leaves two brothers, Mr. Isadore Scheuer, of Cedartown, and Mr. Max Scheuer, of this city.

News of Mr. Scheuer’s death has been received in Cartersville with genuine regret and many expressions of sympathy are being heard on every hand.
