Col. Shumate Dead.
Leading Lawyer of North Georgia Passes Away in Dalton.

Col. I. E. Shumate died at his home in Dalton Monday afternoon.  His death became known in Cartersville the evening that it occurred.  Col. Shumate was stricken with paralysis in one whole side of his body last Thursday.  He recovered somewhat Friday and was even more improved Saturday and Sunday, regaining almost control of his faculties.  He was smitten with a sudden relapse, though, Monday morning, and before the sun had set he was dead.

At the time of his death Col. Shumate was 73 years of age.  He was widely and favorably known in legal circles of the state, having practiced before the courts of a number of its counties and before the supreme bar.  He was counsel for the Southern railway at Dalton.  With him in his law partnership was his son, Frank E. Shumate.  The firm name was Shumate, Maddox & Shumate.

The deceased lawyer was as prominently identified with religious interests as he was with the bar. He was regularly in attendance upon Methodist conferences of the state.
