Death of Mr. J.H. Weaver, Jr.  Again we are called upon to perform the sad duty of chronicling the death of one of our citizens, Mr. J. H. Weaver, Jr., son of Col. And Mrs. J.H. Weaver, died at the home of his parents on Monday morning, the 24th inst., of typhoid fever.  Mr. Weaver had been sick about five weeks before the cold hand of death relieved him of his suffering. 

From the very beginning of his illness he was given every care and attention possible by relatives and friends, and the very best of medical skill procured for him, but it seemed that no power on earth could stay the onward course of the malady, and the young man breathed his last about 9 o’clock Monday morning surrounded by relatives and friends who deeply feel and mourn his untimely taking off.  It is indeed sad for a sorrowing father and a tearful mother to see their children die while in the very flower of youth. 

Mr. Weaver was a young man well fitted for business, laving a liberal education and rare mental abilities.  His remains were placed to rest in the Dallas cemetery on Tuesday evening in the presence of a large number of our people, who deeply feel his loss. 

The New Era extends its sympathies to the bereaved family in this, their hour of sorrow.
