Death of George Davis.

            The sixth victim of the Birmingham collision and wreck that occurred three miles out from that city, five weeks ago yesterday, Geo. W. Davis, was buried at Forest Hills Cemetery yesterday morning. In that wreck his leg was terribly mangled and it was amputated. Several days ago it was decided by the physicians that another amputation was necessary, as the limb had not been taken off far enough up. He was not strong enough to stand the shock and his death resulted. He was raised in Chattanooga , and his father, who lives at Shellmound, brought him here for burial. Rev. T. C. Warner preached the funeral sermon.
