Mr, Marshall had been ill with
typhoid fever for several weeks. Ke
cently some slight improvement was
noted, bnt this was temporary only
and the grim messenger triumphed.
The deceased had been a resident of
Americas for twelve years, occupying a
pretty home on Lee street. His du

here knew him well and esteemed him
for his worth as a citizen.
For fifteen years he was connected
with the honseof WinD, Johnson & Co.
of Macon, and in this capacity was well
known over the stato.
The deceased was a native of Pons-
ton conoty. It was there he wedded
Miss Wimberly, and their married life

Virulent Cancer Cured.

Drunkards and Fools Sometimes
A drunken man staggered into a
church one Sunday and sat down in
the pew of one of the deacons. The
preaeher was discoursing about prev

to think the call personal, so rising
heavily, replied: “Here I am,” and re

characted and fate were eloquently
portrayed. A few minutes later the
preaeher reached another point of his
discourse and asked: “Where is the
hypocrite?” Gently nndging his
neighbor, the drunkard said, in an au
dible whisper, “Stand np, deacon; he
means yon this time. Stand np and
