Mr. J. C. Booth of Nickville is dead. He passed away Monday morning, death coming almost instantly. For a number of months he has not been enjoying the best of health, but recently began to improve and Sunday was bright and cheerful as a young man. He retired feeling good, but early in the morning was taken with a sinking spell from which he never revived. He was only sick about fifteen minutes. Mr. Booth was about sixty-five years old and one Elbert’s best citizens. He is survived by a loving wife and five children, namely S. G. and J. R. Booth, Mrs. George Webb, Mrs. Joe A. Wright and Mrs. W. T. Johnson. The interment took place at Antioch yesterday.
