Mrs. Eliza Blain went to Thomasville, Ga., Friday, to see her brother, James B. Gentry, who is ill. A letter from her yesterday stated that he has a very aggravated case of grip.

The remains of James B. Gentry, who died at Thomasville, Ga., were met at the train Friday afternoon by a large crowd of admirers of the clever young man and followed to their last resting place in Buffalo cemetery. Rev. J.W. Hagin read an appropriate portion of the Scriptures and offered a beautiful prayer, after which the casket, covered with flowers, was lowered into the grave and those who loved Mr. Gentry returned to their homes with sad hearts.
Mr. Richard Gentry, who was with his brother several days previous to his death, tells us that he seemed to suffer greatly until a short while before he died, but that he passed into the great beyond with scarcely a struggle. He was never sufficiently conscious to talk to either Mr. Gentry or his sister, Mrs. Eliza Blain, and they were denied the sad privilege of a farewell word. Mr. Gentry and Mrs. Blain are both grateful to the good people of Thomasville, who helped them by their deeds of kindness and words of comfort
