Mr. Caleb Tompkins, an aged man of this city died last Wednesday, after a severe and prolonged illness.  For almost two years he has been a helpless paralytic, almost unable to move himself in the bed.  Mr. Tompkins was nearly ninety years old and has been a citizen of Cartersville for more than half a century.  He often expressed a desire to die, and said he was ready to be offered up at any time.  May he rest well from his labors.
