Death of Rev. R. F. Taylor.

At his home at Cass Station, ripe in years, good works and Christian deeds, on Tuesday night last, Rev. R. F. Taylor went to his final rest. He was 74 years of age, and the physical machinery had experienced a breakdown, serious symptoms of a final collapse being manifest about two weeks since in a kind of paralytic stroke he received.

Mr. Taylor was a good man, beloved by a large circle of friends throughout this section. He was a Presbyterian preacher and in his career as such had served the churches of Cedartown, Cartersville, Rome, Summerville and many other churches in northwest Georgia had felt the force of his gospel teachings and counsel. When worn out from his labors he located at Cassville where he has spent his later years in peace and quiet. Only a short time ago he celebrated his golden wedding. He leaves a wife and one daughter, Mrs. Barry, of Atlanta, both whom watched his bedside and lovingly and devotedly ministered to his wants in his last hours.

Funeral services were conducted at the home yesterday morning, Rev. E. D. McDougall officiating. The remains were carried to Summerville for interment.
