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.
