ATKINS, Carrol Eugene- A telegram was received here this morning telling of the death in Illinois of Carrol Atkins which occurred yesterday and which was the result of coming in contact with a life wire. He is a son of G.W. Atkins, southwest of town, and left here only a few months ago.

Carrol Eugene Atkins, son of Mr. and Mrs. G.C. Atkins, was born in Shelby county, Ill. May 11th, 1898. He lived with his parents in Kansas eleven years and came to Gentry, Ark. in 1914.
He has since lived near Gentry. On the evening of Feb. 14th, 1918 in Pana, Ill. where he was visiting his brother, N.B. Atkins, he accidentally came in contact with a live electric wire which had fallen in the street and was instantly killed.
His brother tells us that while Carrol was with him he attended Sunday School and enjoyed singing and talking religion.
N.B. Atkins and wife brought the body to Gentry, arriving here Sunday night. The funeral was conducted by the writer at the family residence 1 ½ miles southwest of Gentry Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
A large number of relatives and friends were present. Immediately after the funeral we laid the body to rest in the Flint creek cemetery. Carrol leaves his father and mother, five sisters and four brothers and many friends. H.C. Holland.
