Robert Lee Dale, aged 54, a well known wholesale grocery merchant of Celina, and one of Clay county's most prominent business men and highly esteemed citizens, died on last Saturday, at his home in Celina, following an illness of several weeks. He was well known in Cookeville, where he had numerous relatives and a large number of friends. Funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon at the Church of Christ, in Celina, of which he was an active member. The services at the cemetery in Celina were conducted by the Masons, several masonic lodges participating in the service.


Friends should be very delicate and careful in administering pity as medicine when enemies use the same article as poison.
