Memorial of a Heroic Death.

Next Sunday night at the Presbyterian church in Cartersville, a special memorial service will be had in honor of Rev. Theodore M. Smith.

His father was the pastor of the Presbyterian church here for many years. Young Theodore joined the church and entered the ministry. When the yellow fever broke out in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1888, he was pastor there, and refused to leave as others did. He fell a victim to his duty there.

At this memorial meeting, a tablet in his honor will be unveiled, and received by Major C. H. Smith in behalf of the church. Rev. E. D. McDougall, Judge John W. Akin and others will make remarks. Select music by trained voices will be rendered. Everybody is invited and will be cordially welcomed.
