MARTIN, ET: Last Friday night, Et Martin died at his home in Cookeville, after a lingering illness. He had been in poor health for years, in fact he was never stout, which was to a large degree responsible for his retiring disposition. Mr. Martin was the youngest son of the late Dr. J. P. Martin, and was a pharmacist by profession. He was a first class prescriptionist, but on account of ill health, has done but little work for a long period. He leaves a wife and little son, mother, sister, brother and numerous friends to mourn his loss. He was buried Saturday in the cemetery.
