Death of an Infant.

Little Francis Elizabeth, infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank G. Stover, died of pneumonia, of which it suffered only a brief twenty-four hours, on Thursday last at 12:30 o’clock, at their home in Atlanta.

The little body was brought to this city for interment.  The funeral took place from the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Stover, the grandparents, on Friday morning.  Rev. A. W. Bealer, of the Baptist church officiated, but was assisted by Rev. E. M. Craig, of the Presbyterian church, and Rev. J. W. Buchanon of the First Presbyterian church, of Chattanooga.

Mr. Bealer made a pretty talk, saying many consoling words for the bereaved parents, citing the fact that while nothing was finished here the little bud was transplanted for a perennial growth in the Garden of Paradise. Dr. Bachman also made remarks beautiful and touching.

The remains were brought from Atlanta in a special car and were accompanied by Maj. and Mrs. McCollum, grandparents on the maternal side; Mr. and Mrs. Mat Garner, Messrs. Joseph Garner, Frank McCollum, Sydney Heard, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Armstead, Mr. Henry and Dr. Bachman.

The remains were laid to rest at Oak Hill.
