Miss Ethel Stiles Dead

Her demise after seven weeks of illness from typhoid fever.

Miss Ethel Stiles, a beautiful and accomplished young lady, died Sunday morning at the home of her uncle, Col. W. W. Gordon, after an illness of seven weeks from typhoid fever. It was thought Saturday that a change for the better had come in Miss Stiles condition on account of the decrease of her fever, but the weakness resulting from the long siege was too great to stand the reaction. Surrounded by her mother and relatives she breathed her last about 8 o’clock.

Miss Stiles was an exceedingly attractive young lady. Strikingly handsome and endowed with a gentle manner, together with rare graces and accomplishments, she was a favorite with every one who knew her. Her home was at Etowah Falls, but for a number of years she had spent her winters in Savannah with her mother, who is a sister of Col. Gordon. She was extremely popular in social circles, and at the Charity ball of last year, where she danced in the minuet, she was the queen of the occasion. She was a young lady of remarkably good health, and up to the time she had never known the need of a physician.

Miss Stiles was the daughter of the late Capt. William Henry Stiles, and was 22 years of age. She was a native of Bartow county. Besides her mother she leaves two sisters and three brothers to mourn her loss. Her body will be taken tonight by the Central railroad to the family homestead, at Etowah Falls, where she will be laid to final rest in the family burying ground. Rev. Mr. Benedict of the Episcopal church will conduct the services.—Savannah Morning News.

A telegram was received in Cartersville Sunday morning by Mr. W. H. Stiles announcing the sad death of his sister Miss Ethel, in Savannah. The remains were brought up Tuesday morning and were buried at the family graveyard near their home, eight miles west of Cartersville. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. G. C. Benedict, and quite a number from Cartersville were present.
