            Brunswick, Ga., January 10—(Special)—County Treasurer John P. Lamb, one of Glynn's highly respected citizens and an uncle of the collector of customs, Tom Lamb, died today.  He was the first man to break the back of the carpetbagger and negro office holding regime in this section by being elected county treasurer.  That was twenty-two years ago, an office which he has held continuously ever since faithfully up to the time of his death.  For twenty-two years previous to his election as treasurer he was sheriff, tax collector and tax receiver, making an unbroken record of forty-four years in the public service of the state.  The day he broke the ranks of negro republicanism, his nephew, Thomas R. Lamb, helped in the fight and was himself elected sheriff of Glynn, and for the twenty-two years since has held public and governmental office.  John Lamb was a large and extensive land owner and entertained at his country home in the old-time southern manner.

MRS. LAMBRIGHT PASSES TO REST—Estimable Woman Died Last Night After a Long Illness.

            Mrs. M.A. Lambright passed away last night at 8:45 o’clock at her home, 719 Norwich street.  She had been in very feeble health since the 10th of last July, and had been critically ill for almost a month.
            She was the widow of James E. Lambright, who preceded her in death fifty years ago.
            Mrs. Lambright was born in Liberty county, Georgia, April 3, 1826, and was in her eighty-ninth year.  She was married in 1843, and joined the First Baptist church of Savannah in 1844.  She moved with her husband to Glynn county in 1857, became a resident of Brunswick in 1866, and has resided here ever since.  Six children beside a large number of grandchildren and great grand children survive her.  Her children are Judge J.T. Lambright, Mrs. A.M. Gatchell, this city; Mrs. A.C. Ward, Atlanta, Mrs. P.L. Bailey, Savannah; Mrs. W.S. Mell, Knoxville, and Mrs. Ida R. Wilson, Jacksonville.
            Mrs. Lambright was related to some of the most prominent people of the state, among others being the late Dr. P.H. Mell, once Chancellor of the University of Georgia, and President of the Southern Baptist Convention.
            She had been a member of the First Baptist church since becoming a resident of this city and until her health failed, was active in all its work, as well as every movement fro humanity’s uplift.  She was a woman of much personal charm and a character of rare Christian grace and beauty.  She left eh impress of the most elevating influence upon all who knew her.  Her love for Brunswick and from her people was strong and tender, and her interest in all human betterment never flagged through all her long life.  It is not possible to sum up such a life and influence in words; but it speaks for itself in the loving memories of hundreds upon hundreds of those who have known her.  Her thumb-worn bible is a monument to the secret of her piety and her power.  She walked with God, and God’s light shone in her face.  Her passing was as easy as the twilight.
            The funeral arrangements have not been completed, but it is announced that the services will occur from the First Baptist church this afternoon at 3:30 and the interment is in Oak Grove cemetery.

TRAGIC DEATH OF BRUNSWICK BOY—Luther Lancaster Instantly Killed Near Waycross Last Sunday

            Telegraphic information reached the city Sunday evening of a frightful accident near Waycross during the afternoon, in which Luther V. Lancaster, a well known young man of this city, was instantly killed and several others seriously wounded, one of them P.P. Stuart, of Waycross, later dying from the injuries received.
            It appears that Mr. Lancaster and a party of some 18 others were en route from a point in the Okefenokee swamp to the camps of the Hebbard Cypress Co., located at Hopkins, some 20 miles from Waycross.  The entire party were on a pleasure trip and were using the tramway of the company riding on the trucks used for handling lumber to and from the camps.  The tram bends through a rather thick woods and on the return trip overhanging limbs swept those occupying the seats nearest the engine from the trucks.  In the fall three of the party, Mr. and Mrs. Stuart and Mr. Lancaster, were thrown under the cars, while others managed to make their escape with slight injuries.
            There was no better young man in Glynn county than Luther Lancaster, who for many years was employed by the Hilton Dodge Lumber company and more recently was in the service of the Yaryan Naval Stores company, leaving them in September to accept a position with the Hebbard Cypress company, Waycross.  Possessed of a kindly, genial disposition, upright conscientious and courteous, he was esteemed by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances who will be grieved to hear of his tragic death.  He was 25 years of age, was the son of Mrs. Oren B. Lancaster and in addition to his mother is survived by three sisters, two brothers and a very large number of other relatives in the city, all of whom have the sympathy of countless friends.
            The remains reached the city via the Atlantic Coast Line at 8:30 o’clock last night and were carried to the home of Mrs. Lancaster near the Cypress mills.
            The funeral will occur from the family residence at 11 o’clock this morning, Rev. M.C. Austin officiating.  The interment will occur in Oak Grove cemetery, the pallbearers being as follows:  Frank Clark, Roy Walker, James Beasley, Thomas E. Smith, Edward Manoe and J.L. Roberts.
            During yesterday many floral remembrances were received by the grief-stricken members of the family to whom The News extends its condolence.

SON IS HELD FOR KILLING FATHER—William Lane Held in Jail Here As Result of Unfortunate Tragedy on St. Simons Saturday.

            William Lane, 20-year-old Brunswick man, is in the Glynn county jail charged with the murder of his father, Lawrence A. Lane, 42, which occurred on St Simons Island Saturday afternoon, in the presence of the dead man’s wife and the wife of the son.
            The tragedy seems to have been the aftermath of a family quarrel over a sum of money the father is said to have loaned his son when he purchased an automobile, according to an investigation made by State Troopers D.H. Branch and R.T. Taft, but entirely different versions are told by the man held for murder and his step-mother.
            The shooting occurred just north of the Nineteenth Hole Club on St. Simons, where, it is stated, the elder Mr. Lane had stopped his automobile because of engine trouble.
            Trooper Branch said according to a statement made by the son his father and step-mother visited his home in the city Saturday morning and insulted his wife, an argument over the reported indebtedness being the cause.
            His father, a driver of a public school bus who was formerly engaged in the upholstering business, left with his wife Saturday afternoon to deliver some furniture on St. Simons, Mrs. Lane continuing to do upholstering at her home near Dock Junction.  The trooper said young Lane later went in search of his father, and passed him on the road where he was stopped.  He stopped his car, the trooper reported, and went back to talk to his father, when another argument started.  Young Lane told the officer his father was advancing on him “and I told him to stop or I’ll shoot you,” the officer quoted him as saying.  When his father continued to advance he shot him in the leg with one barrel of a double-barreled shot gun.  He continued to advance, the son said, and he fired the second load, which struck the father in the heart, killing him instantly.
            Mrs. Lane, wife of the dead man, told a different story.  She said her step-son got out of his automobile, walked up and asked his father “What do you mean by cursing my wife,” and immediately fired.
            Trooper Branch said the elder Mr. Lane was not armed, further than having a knife which was in his pocket.  The investigation is being continued.
            Both Mr. Lane and his son have resided in Brunswick for many years.
            Besides his wife, Mr. Lane is survived by a number of children and step-children, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Lane of Jesup, and five brothers.
            Services will be conducted at Norwich Street Baptist church Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock by the Rev. C.H. Moss, interment to be in Palmetto cemetery.  Arrangements are in charge of Mortician Edo Miller.  Local school bus drivers will serve as pall bearers.

WELL KNOWN JESUP WOMAN SHOOTS SELF—Mrs. M.A. Lane, Despondent, Committed Suicide Yesterday Afternoon (By Associated Press.)

            Jesup, Ga., March 9.—Mrs. L.A. Lane, 28, member of one of Wayne county’s most prominent families, is dead, a victim of a .38 calibre pistol which she used to end her life late yesterday afternoon.
            Mrs. Lane left no note explaining her motive, but on the operating table while an emergency operation was being performed, she said:
            “I have stood all of life that I can.”
            Members of her family say she has been suffering from despondency for the past several weeks, although they did not realize her condition was of sufficient cause to prompt her act.           
            The young woman shot herself twice in her attempt to end her life, with the first bullet passing through her breast.  The second was just below her heart.  This tore away parts of the abdomen and resulted in her death.
            Mrs. Lane was the daughter of the Late W.H. Harris, reputed to be Wayne county’s wealthiest farmer.  She is survived by her husband, a son, two daughters, her mother, two brothers, Dr. W.G. Harris of Jacksonville, and Oscar Harris of Odum; a sister, Mrs. Ernest Davis, of Mersham.
            Funeral services will take place here tomorrow.  Interment will be in Big Creek cemetery.

Double Drowning—Risley Outing By Senior Class Has Tragic End

            A beach outing at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, for 43 senior students from Risley High School, ended in tragedy Friday with the drowning of two students.
            The sheriff’s office at Bluffton, S.C., confirmed recovery of the body of Hester Speakman of Sterling, but has listed Melvin Lane of St. Simons Island as missing and presumed drowned.
            Miss Speakman resided with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Speakman of Sterling.  Lane is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Dave Lane, of 508 Gordon Retreat, St. Simons.
            The outing, which was not a school sponsored trip, left by chartered bus Friday morning for a day of swimming and picnicking at the South Carolina resort.
            Adrian Johnson, senior advisor and sociology teacher at the school was chaperone for the trip.
            Johnson related that the students were counseled after lunch to remember that they were to swim and hike in groups and not alone or in couples.
            At approximately 1:30 p.m. a student reported to Johnson that the Speakman girl and the Lane boy were seen swimming with a third student, but that the third student had left them and returned to shore.
            After locating the third student, Johnson discovered that the boy had not seen the two since he left them in the water.
            A search was started and the beach and water area were combed in an effort to locate the two missing students.
            The sheriff’s department at Bluffton, which serves Hilton Head, was notified and it took over the search.
            Johnson, in an interview today said, “We have made this trip several years, without any problems.”  He speculated that the students were caught in a strong current since the tide was coming in.
            Johnson was perplexed at their inability to handle such a situation, since both students were reported to be strong swimmers.  He went on to remark that “in that area when the tide is coming in an undercurrent often crosses below the surface.”  He commented that this set of circumstances could have caused the Speakman girl to panic.
            Johnson was visibly upset as he spoke of the incident.  He had a close relationship with the two students, who were members of his home room class.
            The South Carolina sheriff was unavailable for additional information, but had contacted Risley Principal W.C. McNeely today to confirm recovery of the Speakman girl’s body, and report that the Lane boy is still the object of an extensive search.

BODY OF DROWNED STUDENT IS FOUND AT S.C. RESORT

            The body of Melvin Lane, student at Risley High School, who drowned Saturday during an outing at Hilton Head, Island, S.C., was located early Monday, according to South Carolina authorities.
            Lane, 18, of St. Simons Island, and Hester Speakman, 18, of Sterling, both senior(s) at Risley, drowned around noon Saturday while on an outing with 41 classmates.  Miss Speakman’s body was found by authorities late that afternoon.
            The outing, which was not a school-sponsored trip, left by chartered bus early Saturday for a day of swimming and picnicking at the South Carolina resort.
            Adrian Johnson, senior advisor and sociology teacher at the school, said that the students were counseled to swim or hike in groups, but not alone or in couples.
            A third student was reportedly in the water with Lane and Miss Speakman, but left them alone, later saying they had not seemed to be in any trouble.
            The search for the bodies was conducted by the office of the sheriff of Bluffton, S.C., which serves the Hilton Head area.

FIVE DIE IN ONE DAY—The Death Wagon Rattles O’er the Streets from Morn Till Night—MINISTERS HURRY FROM BED TO BED—Messengers Wait at the Doors to Summon Them from One Chamber of Death to Another—The Pestilence Spreads.

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—(Special.)—Death did its work today, and tonight, beneath the sod in Oak Grove cemetery, five victims of the yellow plague sleep within its arms.  Three more are beyond the power of earthly skill to save.  Down Brunswick’s streets today the dead wagon moved rapidly, carrying the unfortunates to the graves that awaited them.  Back and forth the wagon passed, and as one grave was filled another was dug beside it.  The ministers, from early dawn, drove rapidly to the bedsides of their people; but their prayers could not save the lives they so anxiously watched passing away.  As the breath left the body of one, a messenger stood at the door waiting to direct the ministers to another.  They were powerless to save, and could only pray.  Noble, self-sacrificing ministers, He above alone knows all the good work they have done today.  As the newspaper men hurried fro house to house, getting a list of the dead and dying, they, at least, saw something of their labors.  The ministers of Brunswick, known now throughout the land, can die, should it be ordered, with the consciousness that they labored through famine, pestilence and death for their people’s sake, and at the throne of God, when their time comes, none can doubt, who knows their work, the reward that will await them.  In the golden book, the names of Thompson, Cook, Hennessey, Winn and Perry will shine with a light that cannot be dimmed, for their record is one of noble deeds.  C.W.D.

DYING RAPIDLY—The Pestilence Breaks Its Previous Records at Brunswick

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—There were officially reported today five deaths and forty-nine new cases, the record breaker of the epidemic.  The dead on the list are:  Whites—Burr Winton, Herman Grundy, Alexander Pritchard and Mrs. Oberlauter.
            At 9:30 o’clock tonight William C. Weed died.  He was a victim of imprudent nursing.  His nurse, through feeling for the man begging for food, like all yellow fever patients do, gave him, against the physician’s orders, some nourishing food.  He might have been saved had this not been done.
            The new cases are:  Whites, in Brunswick, 7; Hilda Poulsen, Bessie Firth, Samuel Silverstein, W.A. Line, Thomas Mulligan, F. McC. Brown and Mrs. Currie.
            Whites, on St. Simon’s, 3—Thomas Lambright, Monroe Lambright and Mrs. Taylor, making the total new cases of whites 10.
            To the official lists of deaths should be added one that occurred this afternoon, Lytton Hazelhurst, a negro boy on North Amherst street.
            Besides this a negro child, Pinkie Wilson, died and her death certificate, issued October 18th by Dr. Robert Hazelhurst, read:  “Cause of death, yellow fever; dead before physician reported her.”  This death, although occurring three days ago, has never been reported.
            This makes a total of seven yellow fever deaths that should be counted today.  Two others are hourly expected to die, Ernest George and Adolph Lavine.  There is no possible hope for them.  Two other deaths occurred today, Essie Beckman, a negro child, and Mrs. Scranton, but neither from yellow fever.
            The warm weather following the few days of rain and the cool spell has brought the disease rapidly to the front.  There are now 258 under treatment, 60 white and 198 colored.  The outlook is not cheering for twenty-five days yet.  When the dread of famine seems to be disappearing and the people are breathing easier deaths roll up and the fever increases alarmingly.
            One new case is reported at Jesup today, a son of R.W. Tindall, white.
            Four patients were discharged.  Six are now under treatment.

L.J. LEAVY SR. IS LAID TO REST—Funeral of Estimable Citizen Attended by Many Friends, Confederate Veterans Pay Tribute

            Funeral services for the late L.J. Leavy, Sr. were held yesterday afternoon from the residence, 510 Howe street, and a larger number of friends of the deceased were present to pay their last tribute of love and esteem to one whom they had known and appreciated in life.
            The death of Mr. Leavy cast a gloom over Brunswick for he had spent many years here and was held in the highest esteem in circles.  He was a loyal and devoted husband and an affectionate father and a sterling citizen.
            The services at the home yesterday afternoon were simple yet exceedingly impressive.  Seventeen member of Camp Jackson Confederate Veterans, in command of Capt. Frank Harris, were present to pay their last tribute to their comrade who one of the [sic] most enthusiastic members of that organization.  The flower-laden casket was borne between the files of the heroes in gray and passed under the folds of the flag of the Confederacy, a flag beneath which the dead soldier [illegible] had fought and which he had loved so well.
            The services were conducted by Rev. William Johnson, rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal church and were deeply impressive.  At the conclusion of the service Miss Sadie Dart sang in exquisite voice, “Our Father Knows.”
            The casket was borne from the house by life long friends of Mr. Leavy, Messrs. Robert Pyles, Edwin Dart, Lee Robinson, D.W. Krauss, Judge Alfred Crovatt and A.O. Anderson, and the funeral cortege headed by the Confederate Veterans, moved out to Palmetto cemetery.
            As the evening shadows tell, all that mortal of Louis J. Leavy, was laid amid tears and flowers to his eternal rest.

TRIBUTE OF AFFECTION TO L.J. LEAVY, SR.

            Louis J. Leavy has heard taps sounded for him here and answered to the roll call in the beautiful land above, and greeted comrades long since gone.
            What a lesson is his passing to us of the old camp that survive him and must surely meet him again where there is no parting but life eternal.
            The writer has known him from her childhood, and to know the dear old man was but to love and honor him.
            His life was one that William Cullen Bryant must have had in mind when he wrote:
            “So live, that when Thy summons comes to join the enumerable caravan which journeys on that thou go not as the valley slave scourged to his dungeon but rather as one who draws the draperies of his couch around him and lies down to pleasant dreams.”
            Of him it well may be said “Gone but not forgotten,” for many years must pass before his memory is even dimmed to those who knew and survive him, and many times they will recall him and look forward to the meeting with him again.
            He was a Confederate soldier of the proper type; a man of the firing line, that when wars dread thunders ceased, and peace was declared, ceased fighting and strove to bring in closer union the country of our ancestors.
            He was for many years a member of Camp Jackson, and died in harness.  His every effort was to build up the camp and banish from it all bickerings and dissensions.
            He believed that the chief duty of the camp was to bury its dead with military honors, and was always present at the funeral of a comrade.
            Remembering this beautiful trait of the deceased, his surviving comrades attended his funeral in a body, seventeen strong in full uniform and gave to him the last salute.
            He was buried in the uniform so often worn by him in parades of the camp, and lay like a warrior taking his rest.
            Rest, soldier rest, and may no sad dreams disturb they [sic] repose.  Rest comrade rest, and may they [sic] memory ever be cherished by thy surviving comrades and friends and thy name and worth never be forgotten in the dear old camp.
            This tribute of affection is written by a daughter of Camp Jackson, who knew and loved him well.  Mrs. F.H. HARRIS

MRS. A.H. LEAVY PASSES AFTER LONG ILLNESS

            Mrs. Arthur H. Leavy died Friday night at 11 o’clock at her hom on Union street after a long illness.  Mrs. Leavy, who was 49 years old, has been almost an invalid for the past several years, her health beginning to decline following the death of her son.  Everything possible was done for her relief, but her illness was such that her condition did not respond to treatment.  She gradually grew weaker, until death came peacefully, brining to an end earthly suffering for this beloved woman.  Until her health failed, Mrs. Leavy was active and alert, and will be greatly missed, no only by her family and relatives, but a wide circle of friends.
            The deceased is survived by her husband, A.H. Leavy, member of Thee Brunswick News staff, and one son, A.H. Leavy, Jr., two grandchildren, also four brothers and one sister, and numerous other relatives.
            The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at 4 o’clock from the home, 1309 Union street, conducted by Rev. Royal K. Tucker, pastor of St. Marks Episcopal church.  A quartette composed of Mrs. Goulding Stacy, Miss Evelyn Tomberlin, J.L. Andrews and A.C. Knight sweetly sang “Asleep in Jesus” and “Nearer My God to Thee.”
            The following gentlemen acted as pallbearers:  Judge D.W. Krauss, R.S. Pyles, W.L. Harwell, L.W. Beach, Judge Edwin W. Dart, and A.O. Anderson.
            The remains were tenderly laid to rest in Oak Grove cemetery, the funeral being in charge of Edo Miller.
            Many beautiful floral offerings and the presence of many friends at the funeral attested the love and esteem in which Mrs. Leavy was held in the city in which she had lived all her life.

MRS. SELINA L. LIGEOUR, BRUNSWICK’S OLDEST RESIDENT, DIED LAST NIGHT—PASSES AWAY AT HOME OF DAUGHTER IN FERNANDINA; RITES TUESDAY

            Mrs. Selina Lasserre Ligeour, Brunswick’s oldest native resident, who, had she survived until next May, would have observed her 100th anniversary, passed away at 11:30 o’clock last night at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J.J. Cone, in Fernandina, Fla.
            Mrs. Ligeour had been spending some time with her daughter and became ill a few weeks ago, and for the past several days her condition had been critical.
            Mrs. Ligeour was born in Brunswick and had spent most of her life here, where she was well-known by an unusually large number of friends.  She is the mother-in-law of Mrs. Ethel B. Ligeour and the grandmother of Mrs. Ray Wood, both of this city.  She celebrated her 99th birthday last May 22.
            Her late father, Capt. Lasserre, was a boat builder in Brunswick nearly a century ago, and her late son, Capt. Joseph Lasserre, was a pilot on the Brunswick bar for many years.
            When Mrs. Ligeour was interviewed by a News reporter on her 99th anniversary, she discussed olden days in Brunswick, recalling many special events.  She posed for the accompanying photograph and was not phased by the flash of bulbs.  She was quick to reply to all questions asked her.
            Mrs. Ligeour said one of her greatest thrills came about two and a half years ago while she was visiting in Jacksonville.  She attended a radio show, “Breakfast in Hollywood,” and was presented an orchid by the announcer as being the oldest person at the broadcast.
            She experienced her first airplane ride from New Orleans to Jacksonville when she was 96.  Discussing the trip she said, “I enjoyed it, but I did not like it when they strapped me in my seat.”
            Until she was stricken a short time ago, Mrs. Ligeour took a 10 block walk each morning for the exercise, she said, and often told friends she knew she was the oldest native resident, and she attributed her long and healthful life to Brunswick’s climate.
            Besides her daughter-in-law and granddaughter here, Mrs. Ligeour is survived by her daughter in Fernandina; a sister, Mrs. Dolly Ganz; six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
            Funeral services will be held in Fernandina Tuesday morning and will be attended by local relatives and a number of Brunswick friends.

            Jacob Jekyl Lissner, for more then 65 years a resident of Brunswick during most of that time identified with the retail and wholesale business of the city, died at the family residence, 1327 Union street, at 10 o’clock Sunday night, following a long illness.
            Mr. Lissner had been confined at his home for five years, and for many months his condition was such that little hope was entertained for his recovery.
            During his younger life, Mr. Lissner was active in Brunswick business circles, for years being one of the city’s leading business men.
            Born in St. Marys June 18, 1863, he was 82 years of age last month.  Mr. Lissner came to Brunswick when he was 14 years of age.  Later he attended school at College Point on the Hudson river in New York.  Returning to the city he was employed by his uncles, the late Arnold and Michalis Kaiser, who for years operated a large retail dry goods business under the name of A. Kaiser & Bro.  Later, Mr. Lissner entered the retail dry goods business, and then engaged in the wholesale business on Bay street, where he was successful for a number of year(s).  He retired, however, a number of years ago, but continued quite active until he was stricken ill.
            Mr. Lissner was one of the oldest members of the local lodge of Elks and had been affiliated with other organizations in the city.
            Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Flora Marks Lissner, two children, Miss Helen Lissner and Capt. J.J. Lissner, Jr., stationed at Newport News, Va., who is en route to the city; two sisters, Mrs. Tillie Berger and Mrs. Celia Jacoby, both of New York, and one aunt, Mrs. Carrie Kaiser, also of New York.
            Funeral services will be held at the residence Tuesday night at 8 o’clock, the service to be read by Fred Pfeiffer, and services by the local lodge of Elks will follow.  The body will then be forwarded to Atlanta, where burial will be at 11 o’clock Wednesday morning.

SAD ACCIDENT—On Wednesday afternoon last Robbie Littlefield, oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. S.C. Littlefield, was found lying in water about one foot deep near the express office on the bay.  He had been seen only a short while before in his usual health.  Being subject to fits, the presumptions is that he was suddenly attacked with one of these and fell into the water and was drowned before he could recover.  Robbie was a young man of exemplary habits and well beloved by all his comrades.  His parents and relations have the sympathy of the whole community in this sad bereavement.

AT A GOOD OLD AGE—Mr. T.A. Livingston Dies at His Country Home

            Mr. T.A. Livingston, an old and respected citizen of this county, died of asthma at 11:15 last night, at his residence, “College Place,” near Bladen.
            Mr. Livingston leaves a wife, five sons and three daughters to mourn his loss.  He was born at Abbeville, S.C., August 29, 1824, and moved to Madison county, Fla., when a boy ten years of age.  He resided in Florida until 1880, in which year he moved to Glynn county, where he has since resided.
            Mr. Livingston was one of the prosperous farmers of this section and had a large circle of friends.  He was the ex-officio justice of the peace of his district, having held the office for a number of years.  In politics Mr. Livingston was always a good democrat.  A consistent member of the Baptist church, he lived a Christian life and died with the Christian faith.  His family name is a synonym of good citizenship and honest worth in South Carolina, and it was kept alike unstained by this one of those who bore it in Georgia.

WORRY HASTENED DEATH—C.B. Lloyd’s Attending Physicians Say That He was Broken Down.

            Brunswick, Ga., June 27.—(Special.)—Rumors have been circulated alleging that C.B. Lloyd, president of the broken Brunswick State bank, who died last night, committed suicide.  These rumors are untrue.  In answer to a note from a correspondent the following statement is made by the attending physician:
            “The report that Mr. C.B. Lloyd committed suicide is utterly false and without any foundation.  I attended at his bedside during his entire last illness, and he died of garlisti and general nervous break down caused by financial worry and business reverses.  HUGH BURFORD, M.D.”
            Dr. Robert E.T. Burford, another attending physician, also denies the report officially.  Mr. Lloyd has been sick for months.  The day before the National bank failed, Lloyd left a sick bed for New York.  Arriving there he was taken sick and after lying in bed ten days, left for Brunswick.  He was obliged to stop in Savannah on the return for medical treatment and could only be up a few hours each day before his final collapse.  Mr. Lloyd made very dollar’s worth of property he owned over to the bank.  All his life insurance went for his debts.  He made every effort to repair what he had unfortunately done.

YOUNG ARTHUR LUCAS ACCIDENTALLY KILLED—Son of Owner of Brunswick Theaters Loses Life on Hunting Trip

            Arthur Lucas, Jr., 22, son of a member of the firm Lucas and Jenkins, operators of the Ritz and Bijou theaters here, is dead from shotgun wounds accidentally received when a gun in the hands of his brother, John, was discharged while on a hunting trip near Point Peter, Camden county, shortly after 8 o’clock this morning.
            The Lucas youths, accompanied by two other youths from near Atlanta, and Mrs. Lucas were spending the Thanksgiving holidays at the Lucas coastal resort at Point Peter when the tragedy occurred this morning.
            L.F. Arnow, postmaster at St. Marys, Ga., in reporting the accident this morning stated that John and Arthur Lucas, accompanied by their two companions, were on a hunt in the vicinity of St. Marys when the shooting took place.
            “John was standing by the side of their automobile,” Mr. Arnow stated, “and was in the act of unloading his shotgun in preparation of an automobile trip into St. Marys for the purpose of obtaining additional ammunition when his gun accidentally went off.”  His older brother was standing nearby and the entire discharge from the shell struck him in the right side of his abdomen, according to Mr. Arnow.
            The wounded youth was placed in the automobile and he was rushed to St. Marys where upon arrival physicians pronounced him dead.
            Mrs. Lucas, mother of the youths, was at Point Peter when she was notified of the fatality.  The father, Arthur Lucas, was at his home in Atlanta.
            The body, accompanied by members of the family, left St. Marys this morning for Jacksonville where it will be prepared for removal to Atlanta this afternoon.
            Point Peter, where Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins maintains a summer and winter coastal Georgia home, is in Camden county.  It has been a popular place for the Lucas youths and their parents for several years.
