Young Man Dies a Victim of the Great White Plague.

After having been sick since Christams, a sufferer from tuberculosis, Mr. David Franklin Griffith, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. J. Griffith, of 202 Belmonth avenue, died yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock. He was 21 years of age.

Mr. Griffith was a deservedly popular young man and had hosts of friends won to him by his kind and affable manner and his delightful personality. He was learning the drug business and while at his work behind the counter, he had the opportunity to make many warm friends. His last position he left at Christmas to visit his sister, Gertrude, who died here December 29.

Mr. Griffith came home ill and went immediately to his bed following the funeral of his sister. He has been gradually growing weaker since that time. He was a member of the 3B Baraca Class of the First Baptist Church and the pallbearers will be chosen from among his former friends and associate members. The funeral services will be conducted at the Belmont Methodist Church this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by Rev. B. S. Fincher, who has been asked to officiate in the absence through sickness of the pastor, Rev. Mr. Bradley.
