Mr. A. E Coggins a well known
and beloved citizen of. Canton Jied

Coggins hus spent his vigorous, mnn-

his noble life devoted to Canton and

has fought the battles of life. His

self, his thoughts Was to give rather
th-.n to get, he was too generous to
be contentious and too broad to
strop to a little thing. He was 81
yer.rs of age and leaves a large fami

the Baptist church. The g°nial

be brought together, he would sleep
embowered in the lap of an imperial
forest. As his vsilent form literally
