Patient Dropped Dead.
William E. Henry dropped dead at the
City Hospital in Macon Monday evening
w'hile dressing preparatory to leaving his
sick bed. He thought he was fully recov
ered from a spell of remittent fever, from
which he had been suffering several
weeks. He had iiitle warning. He was a
prosperous grocery merchant on Haw
thorne and First streets. Years ugo he
sold papers in Macon’s streets. He was
about 38 years old and unmarried.
From a reliable source it is learned
that Macon’s population by the new’ cen
sus will be about 30,000. The exact figures
are not yet attainable. If the population
reaches 30,000 this will be 7,254 more than
Macon had by the census of IS9O. Her
population at that time was 22,746. U is
estimated that the population of Bibb
county will be over 50,000. If the popula
tion of the suburbs was counted, the city
would have more than 40,000 souls. The
suburbs are really a part of Macon, for
their people do business in Macoji and
are only separated from the city by an
imaginary geographical line. Supervisor
Strickland of the Sixth District has had
the work under his supervision well ex
ecuted. It is said that he. was the first
supervisor in the state to make his re
Dr. J. N. Jones, ex-president of the

A Thriving Frnit Crop.
The fruit crop that has been so abun
dant this season around Lemon City
etill continues. First came the cherries,
then paw-paws, soon followed by pineap
ples and mangoes. All were very abun
dant. The growers received good prices
for their pines. A few mangoes were
shipped, as trials, to the North. Another
year the demand will be larger. Now
the guavas are in season and abundant,
and prices paid are excellent.
Nature’n Sit** for Capital.
Gainesville Sun: The Madison Recorder
Is making a strong fight in favor of the
retention of the capital at Tallahassee.
The Recorder, however, plainly indicates
that w'hile Tallahass e is its choice for
the capital, it has a friendly feeling for
Gainesville. It Is by no means certain
that the capital will be token from Tal
lahassee, but in the event of its removal
we think now, as we l ave ever thought,
that it will come to Gainesville, where
nature intended it should be.

New Hampshire, who has large real es

Matter., of Interest to Shipping Men
Efforts are being marie to load and sail
the Belgian steamship Clematis as soon as
possible. With the work which is being
done it is likely she will finish loading in
record-breaking time, and get away from
Savannah in time to keep up the good
record she has established since leaving
her builders. Considerable Interest Is
still felt in lehe movements of the vessel.
Her owners are no doubt expecting her
to show up at her destination in qui-k
time, and may not be disappointed. The
Clematis is understood lo carry between
18.000 and 20,0c*) casks of spiriis In casks.
