From brief notices in the Dalton papers, we learn of the sudden death, from heart disease, of Prof. Charles A. F. Vasque, the teacher of languages and fine art in the Dalton Female College.

Prof. Vasque was a native of France, and spent his early youth there.  He entered the University at Bonn, Germany and graduated from there with credit.  He has been in America since his graduation and for late years has been teaching in schools at Athens, LaGrange, Atlanta and Dalton.  It was at the old high school in LaGrange that the writer was his pupil, and we will ever remember his faithfulness in his vocation.  He was devoted to art, and the productions of his brush were no mean pieces, but were admired by the most cultivated people in the country.

He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his demise.  May He who “tempers the wind to the shorn lamb” watch over them kindly in their deep affliction.
