Cartersville Mourns.
Death of Mrs. S. J. Ware.—A Noble Christian Woman at Rest.

Last Sunday was a gloomy day in our city. Mrs. S. J. Ware breathed her last, and the gentle spirit took its flight to the God who gave it, at 3 o’clock Sunday morning, after a painful illness of more than two weeks. The funeral was preached at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon, by the pastor, Rev. J. S. Hillhouse, and the large congregation attested the high esteem in which she was held by our people. After all the standing room was occupied, many filled the vestibule and doorways, and many turned away because they could not make their way into the church.

The sermon was full of timely admonition to those left behind, and touching mention of the beautiful lessons taught by her Christian life. Then the long procession of sorrowing friends followed the remains to the grave. Mrs. Ware came to Cartersville some six years ago, a widow with three children, and began to teach music. Her skill in teaching soon won her a high reputation, and her kindly nature made fast friends of all with whom she became well acquainted. She was a devoted mother and a wholesouled neighbor, and God only can know the strength of the chords that are broken be her taking away.

In the church and Sunday school she will be sadly missed, and it would be difficult to fill her place. All hearts go out in tenderest sympathy for the children so sorely bereaved.

May the Good Shepherd hold them in his own loving arms
Till the burdens of life are forever laid down.
Then bear them in triumph away from earth’s rude alarms
To share with sweet mother a white robe and crown.
