Mr. Nelson W. MacDonald, of New York, brother of Mrs. B.B. Strait,
expired suddenly Monday morning at 9 o'clock, at the residence of Mr. Strait,
1605 Gloucester street. The young man had been a sufferer from that dreaded
disease consumption, and was returning from Florida, where he had been, in the
hope that the climate would benefit him. He came by way of this city to see his
sister, and while pleasantly conversing with her Monday, suddenly breathed his

wealth leave a better name?

BREATHED HIS LAST AT 2 O’CLOCK THIS MORNING
Mr. Timothy Mahoney died at 2 o’clock this morning and it is thought
the cause of his death was heart failure. Only a few minutes before he breathed
his last he drank a cup of tea and seemed as well as usual.
The deceased came to Brunswick from Ireland 40 years ago and has
lived here since. Mr. Mahoney was a man of considerable popularity and means.
He leaves a wife and five children: John, William, Mary, Julia and Annie. The
first named resided in Florida, while the others lived with him here. Mr. Will
Mahoney is in Albany, having left here last night. The funeral will occur

The funeral of Mr. Timothy Mahoney will occur from the Catholic
church at 2:30 o’clock this afternoon, and the services will be conducted by
Rev. P.J. Luckie. The hundreds of friends of the deceased were shocked
yesterday morning when they read THE CALL of the sudden death. For the past few
days Mr. Mahoney has been complaining of a pain in the heart, but the family as
well as himself thought it was indigestion and did not feel alarmed and his
death fell like a thunder clap upon them. As was stated yesterday the deceased
has been a resident of Brunswick for the past 40 years and he has always been an
upright honest citizen, a consistent member of the Catholic church, a loving
father and kind husband. It is said by those who were near to him, that he
never said a word against a man in his life.
For many years Mr. Mahoney has been section master for the B & W
railroad but resigned some weeks ago, he having reached that age which made the
work too hard for him, he being nearly 70 years of age. To the bereaved family
THE CALL tenders its sympathy.

LITTLE BOY'S HEAD SEVERED BY MOTOR CAR--JOHN MANNING, TEN YEARS OLD, MET
HORRIBLE DEATH YESTERDAY--While Playing on Southern Track at Everett Section
Foreman's Motor Car Ran Over Him, Death Resulting Instantly.
John, the little ten-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Manning, who
reside at Everett City, met with a most horrible accident yesterday morning at
Everett, when a motor car on the Southern railway ran over him, almost
completely severing his head, crushing his leg and otherwise mangling him.
The awful accident was witnessed by Section Foreman Murphy, three others
who were on the motor car with him, and one or two who were standing nearby when
the accident occurred.
It seems that Section Foreman Murphy with his crew was speeding from
Everett to Mt. Pleasant in order to do some work. The little Manning boy was
playing on the railroad track and the car was upon him before those in charge
saw the youngster. When the car was within ten or fifteen yards of the little
boy, and it was seen that it would be impossible to stop it before reaching him,
the section foreman yelled at the little fellow to get off the track, which he
could have done at that time, but looking up and seeing the car, he was so
excited, realizing that great danger he was in, that instead of jumping across
the track, the boy ran up the track. Every effort was made to bring the motor
car to a stop, but it was impossible, and the little fellow was caught in the
middle of the track and knocked to one side, one of the wheels passing over his
head, almost severing it from the body, while another wheel passed over his leg.
The car was stopped quickly as possible and the little boy was picked
up, but the accident had proved fatal and the little fellow lived for only a
The accident caused general sorrow among the people around Everett,
where the little boy was well known. He was an unusually bright youngster and
the parents have the sympathy of many friends in the sad accident. The funeral
occurred yesterday afternoon at Mt. Pleasant.

Martin V. Markham, 83, a resident of Brunswick practically all of

Hospital. He had been ill for some time.
Mr. Markham was born in Camden county but he came to Brunswick to
reside when a small boy. For approximately 40 years he was a chief engineer and
was employed on several local passenger steamers during the time he was engaged
in the steamboat business. However, he retired a number of years ago, and since
that time he continued to be quite active in other work until a short time ago.
He was also a boat builder, and was said to me [sic] among the best
in this area in building small boats. He also was an expert in making small

MARLIN HAS FIGHTING CHANCE—Some Hopes For His Recovery Held Out By Physicians
Early This Morning
Though still lingering between life and death at his home on Wolf
street, E.C. Marlin, for whom all hope had practically been abandoned since
Tuesday night, showed such an improvement late yesterday afternoon and last
night that attending physicians held out some hope for his recovery.
The announcement in The News yesterday morning that Mr. Marlin was
in a critical condition, with but small chances of his recovery, caused genuine
sorrow throughout the entire city. During the day messages came form the
bedside of the popular young man that there was no chance for his recovery,
although everything possible was done for him. However, late yesterday
afternoon his fever, which had been unusually high throughout the day, dropped
and he appeared to be breathing a great deal better, and this gave the
physicians and members of the family renewed hope. Though the improvement was
not slight, still it was the first indication that there was any chance at all
for his recovery.
At a late hour last night it was announced that no turn for the
worse had taken place, and the announcement was made that, although Mr. Marlin’s
condition was most critical, still he had a fighting chance.

GENIAL EUGENE MARLIN PASSED AWAY YESTERDAY—At 4:15 in the Afternoon Grim Reaper
Claimed Popular Young Man—Was a General Favorite—Funeral Will Occur From First
Baptist Church at 3:30 This Afternoon and Interment Will be in Palmetto
Eugene C. Marlin, son of Mr. and Mrs. L.C. Marlin, one of the most
popular young business men of this city, and a Brunswickian born and reared,
esteemed in the very highest degree, passed away at his home on Wolf street at
4:15 o’clock yesterday afternoon. The death of Mr. Marlin comes in the nature
of a tragedy and a shock to the people of the entire community.
On Saturday morning last he was the subject of an operation for a
slight affection of the nose. He did not rally from the operation as well as he
should, and some alarm was entertained by attending physicians. Early Monday
morning it was observed that meningitis had developed, and from that time to the
hour of his death he failed rapidly. Practically every physician in the city
went to the aid of the stricken Brunswickian, and everything possible that
medical science could suggest was resorted to, but without avail, and death
relieve the sufferer.
Eugene Marlin was but thirty-one years old, but in that brief span
of years he had accomplished much and the grim hand of death found him one of
the most useful, independent and growing young business men in the city. His
early life was spent in the banking interests of the city, but for a few years’
service as cashier of the local freight offices of the A., B. and A. railroad.
However, some five years ago he purchased an interest in the Georgia Hardware
company, and became its secretary and treasurer, exercising to a large extent
the active management of the company. He was a keen business man, a good
accountant, and, above all, possessed a charming, jovial disposition that made
and retained for him thousands of friends.
Several years ago Mr. Marlin was married to Miss Deborah Stewart,
and to that union three sweet little children were born, all of whom survive
him. The home life was thus ideal, and both Mr. and Mrs. Marlin were popular in
the social circles of the city, retaining their relations with the dancing
element, the summer colony at St. Simon [sic], etc. Mr. Marlin was a member of
the Masons and of the Knights of Pythias, and in both organizations he was a
This untimely death has cast a gloom over the entire city, and in
unmeasured fashion the sympathy of all the people go out to the grief stricken
wife, the little fatherless children and to those devoted parents who had just
cause to be proud of such a son.
The funeral will occur from the First Baptist church at 3:30 o’clock
this afternoon, Rev. O.P. Gilbert, of that church, conducting the funeral
services, assisted by Rev. D. Watson Winn of St. Simon [sic]. The following
gentlemen will act as pallbearers: D.A. Robinson, Clinton Knight, William
Dunwody, J.E. Dubberly, L.E. Allen, C.M. Peddicord. Interment will be in

DEATH OF MR. J.S. MARLIN
Died, on the night of the 25th ult., Mr. J.S. Marlin, of this city.
The deceased might well be remembered among the old citizens of Brunswick,
having been a resident here for very many years. Being a man of strong
constitution naturally, and leading an active life, he reached a ripe old age
(seventy-four years), and at last passed away quietly, not by the violent hand
of disease, but simply from a wearing out of the machinery of life. He leaves
behind him a pure, Christian life—a rich legacy to his children. To that fond
and loving wife who survives him, that dutiful son on whom he has leaned for
support in declining years, and those affectionate daughters, we extend the
sympathy of a heart that feels for them in their affliction, for in the death of
Mr. Marlin the writer has lost a warm friends [sic]. Peace to his ashes.

They called him “Peanut Joe.” It matters not

fruit a nickle’s [sic] worth at a time. I knew him for thirty years, and there
never throbed [sic], in human breast, a kinder, or truer heart. As I stood over
him today, so calm, so peaceful, I wondered if his heart went out to his native
land, and whispered courage to his countrymen in their death grapple for
Christianity against infidelity, for I well knew his faith was of the faithful.
He is a great and good man from whom the needy, or those who came for protection
went not away with disappointed hopes and discontented countenance. He was this
man, though, though humble, “Peanut Joe.” J.E. DART.

OF WOMAN MISSING 4 DAYS FOUND ON BLYTHE
Missing since Tuesday when she left her home on Blythe Island to go
to the residence of a neighbor to call an ambulance to take her husband to a
hospital, the body of Mrs. Margaret Mazoe, 36, was found shortly after 7 o’clock
this morning in the back yard of her home by her brother-in-law, Harry Mazoe,
and early investigations indicate she died of natural causes, as there were no
signs of violence in evidence.
According to the story related by relatives of Mrs. Mazoe, her
husband, Cecil Mazoe, was ill at their home, and she left about 5:30 o’clock
Tuesday afternoon to go to the home of a nearby neighbor to summon an
ambulance. That was the last seen of her until her body was found.
Mr. Mazoe, after his wife did not returned [sic] in a limited time,
was endeavoring also telephone [sic], and a Mrs. Webb, on the phone line, heard
him anc called an ambulance and the husband was carried to the hospital.
Mrs. Mazoe’s absence caused considerable anxiety and a search was
instituted for her. Today her brother-in-law went over to the home of his
brother to feed his chickens and found the body in the yard. An outhouse is
located about 100 feet from the house, and the body was about midway the
distance. It was not discovered earlier, it was stated, because there was no
one else at the residence.
It was stated that Mrs. Mazoe was subject to “bad spells” and that
her heart had become affected, therefore it is believed she suffered an attack
as she left her home to go to a telephone.
Besides her husband, Mrs. Mazoe is survived by a little son, Robert
Love, who makes his home here with his aunt, Mrs. Otto Gelow, 613 Ellis street.

Donald McGregor, 20, Dies; Accident Injuries Fatal To Bravery Medal Winner
A 20-year-old Brunswick youth who received the Young American Medal for
Bravery from the late President Kennedy at the White House for a dramatic sea
rescue, died here last night of injuries sustained in a wreck on Glynn Avenue
that also injured three other persons.
The car in which the youth was a passenger had been drag racing shortly
before the accident, city police said.
Donald Eugene McGregor, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest M. McGregor of Fancy
Bluff, died at 11:45 p.m. in the Brunswick hospital of head injuries received
when a northbound auto driven by Myron M. Pegram, 19, of 147 Waycross Highway,
went out of control just south of the Brunswick marina, knocked down eight posts
of the median fence and overturned, according to officers R.E. Tayloe and D.A.
Pegram received a cut on the ear, and McGregor was pinned in the
wreckage. Officer Tayloe received a minor back injury freeing him, police
When the Pegram auto hit the fence about 4 p.m., a 20-foot section of
pipe from it was propelled javelin-like into the windshield of a southbound
1958 model car driven by Garrett P. Raymond, 48, of Starke, Fla., who received a
hand laceration, police said. Raymond's wife, Mrs. Ethel S. Raymond, suffered a
bruised neck, and a third occupant, Jimmy Crossy Jr., received a cut on the
forehead police said.
According to witnesses, including five youths in a following vehicle
which police said had been involved in a drag race with the Pegram car shortly
before the accident, the car in which McGregor died went out of control on the
rain-swept highway as Pegram applied the brakes, officers said.
Pegram since May of last year has forfeited three bonds totaling $90 on
charges of speeding, reckless driving and improper muffler, police records show.
In addition to the medal pinned on him by President Kennedy March 23,
1961, McGregor on the same day was awarded the Carnegie Hero Medal by former
Congresswoman Iris Blitch.
The medals recognized McGregor's rescuing a family of four from drowning
when their sloop began breaking up after becoming grounded July 20, 1959, off
McGregor, then 15, voluntarily left the fishing boat he was on and
boarded the sloop. In an ensuing three-hour battle with the sea, he swam ashore
and got help after an adverse tide halted progress of the rest of the
life-jacketed party--Mr. and Mrs. Harold Clark, of Jacksonville, Fla., and their
two children Robin and Christine. McGregor also received the Coast Guard's
Silver Lifesaving Medal.
Funeral services for McGregor will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow at the
First Methodist Church, with the Rev. James T. Pannell officiating, assisted by
the Rev. Bernard Brown. The burial will be in the churchyard of Emanuel
Methodist Church, of which McGregor was a member.
Surviving besides McGregor's parents are four brothers, Robert M.
McGregor, Roland McGregor and James Gordon McGregor, all of Brunswick, and
Randall McGregor, stationed with the Navy at Milton, Fla.; and two sisters, Mrs.
Brenda Davis, Brunswick, and Mrs. Joan Davis, Binghamton, N.Y.

prior to the traffic death here Sunday of 20-year-old Carnegie Hero Medal winner
Donald Eugene McGregor was postponed until 10 a.m. Friday to give members of the

"I wouldn't want to dispose of this case until some member of the family

deferring the cases of Myron M. Pegram, 19, of Rt. 1, and Harry Myers, 18, of 44
McGregor's funeral was today at 2 p.m. at the First Methodist Church,
with interment in the Emmanuel Methodist Churchyard at Brookman.
Pegram and Myers had been drag racing shortly before the crash of
Pegram's auto into the median fence of U.S. 17 just south of the Brunswick
marina, police said.
McGregor, a passenger in the Pegram vehicle, subsequently died of head
injuries. A length of pipe flew off the fence and speared through the
windshield of another car, injuring the three occupants.
Also in court today in connection with the case were four other youths
who were passengers in the Myers vehicle and who were given summons as
witnesses. Including attorney Anthony A. Alaimo and parents of the involved
youths, some 20 persons were in court in connection with the case.
McGregor was awarded the Young American Medal for Bravery, the Carnegie
Hero Medal and the Coast Guard's lifesaving medal for the dramatic sea rescue of
a family of four from a sloop grounded off Cumberland Island July 20, 1959.

DEATH OF WILDS McIVER
On last Saturday night, just before midnight, the spirit of Wilds
McIver passed away. He had been for weeks suffering from the effects of a wound
in the leg from a pistol ball, accidentally discharged by a room-mate, at
Waycross. When brought to this city, his physicians began treating him on the
information derived that the ball had been removed. Great difficulty was
experienced, however, in preventing frequent hemorrhages. On Saturday it was
decided to perform an operation, in the course of which the ball was found. Too
late, however, was the discovery, and on the same night he died. So young and
hopeful, the light and joy of his family, and a favorite with many friends, it
seems sad that he should be taken, but it is not for man to question the edicts
of the Supreme Ruler. His funeral took place on Sunday afternoon from the
Baptist church, and was attended by a large concourse of friends. He leaves two
brothers and a large circle of relatives to whom we tender our sympathies.

The State Patrol said the highway had not been cleared of the
impact-welded wreckage 1 1/2 hours after the collision which also killed the
other driver, Carl Clinton Williams of Jacksonville.
Dr. Mercer was traveling alone to a medical meeting at Albany.
Dr. Mercer, 39, was elected to the City Commission to fill the unexpired
term of Congressman J. Russell Tuten and became the first man to win election to
the post of mayor-commissioner at large after its enactment in the General
Dr. Mercer prided himself on never once missing a City Commission
meeting despite the pressures of a busy medical practice. Although his

Great Loss is Reaction of Stunned City; All will Miss Him, Taylor Says; Old
News of Mayor Mercer's tragic death evoked a
stunned reaction from city leaders and the man on the street.
"We were very close," said Commissioner Harry Long. "I just heard about
it a minute ago, and this thing's got me all shook up. It's so great a loss.
I'm awfully upset. he (Mayor Mercer) jut meant so much to all of us, not only
as mayor but as a personal friend. I was with him only yesterday. He was
young. It's an unbelievably great loss."
Commissioner Clyde A. Taylor called Mercer's loss "awfully bad and very
regrettable. The whole city will miss him greatly. He was an ideal man for
this time of the city's growth. He was a dedicated doctor and did a great
amount of charity work. he was most highly though of in all endeavors. It was
a pleasure to work with him. We'll all miss him greatly. He was always so
considerate of us as commissioner. It's a great loss. He was so able, kind and
thoughtful. He gave too much of his time to others.
City Attorney Bernard N. Nightingale hadn't heard about the fatal
head-on crash until he was reached by phone just after 2 p.m. "Oh, I'm so
sorry," he said. "It's a terrific calamity. I sympathize with his family."
Old friends called to find out the details and express their sense of
loss. Felix Cox, personnel supervisor at Hercules Powder Col, who as a director
of the American Cancer Society's chapter here worked with the mayor at meetings
of the group, said it was "very saddening to know of (his) death and loss."

collision 10 miles west of Waycross on Saturday.

Mercer Works Will Continue Minster Says
"Dr. Joe Mercer is dead but his works will live on," the Rev. Jack P.
Lowndes, pastor of the First Baptist Church, said today in funeral services for
the late mayor.
Mr. Lowndes pictured Dr. Mercer as a dedicated man of convictions who
was not afraid to act on his beliefs.
In his public service and physical healing careers, Dr. Mercer touched
hundreds of lives and will be recalled by all in cherished memories of their
individual interludes with him, the minister said.
A church official estimated that 800 persons attended the funeral,
filling the auditorium, annex and balcony with only standing room remaining.
Additional friends of Dr. Mercer were on hand at graveside in Palmetto Cemetery.
Despite a request from the family that contributions be made to the
Glynn-Brunswick Memorial Hospital Trust Fund in lieu of flowers, more than 100
floral tributes were sent.
Johnny Wilson, president of Edo Miller & Sons Funeral Home, described
the turnout as the largest for a funeral in his career as a mortician.
The Glynn Academy Red Terrors football team appeared at the funeral in a
body in respect to Dr. Mercer, one of their most avid boosters in the past
championship season and himself a former football player for the University of

Car Which Hit Mercer Vehicle 'All Over Road'
The automobile of a Jacksonville Naval Air Station
mechanic which crashed head-on into a car carrying Dr. Joseph B. Mercer, killing
both drivers, had run two cars and a truck off U.S. 82 before swerving into Dr.
Mercer's westbound lane, according to investigating state troopers.
In their report of the noontime accident 10 miles west of Waycross, Cpl.
D.M. Griffin and Trooper W.E. Peacock of the Waycross State Patrol post quoted a
witness, Nelson Pruitt, Jr., as saying he was driving behind the eastbound car
of Carl Clinton Williams, 50, and Williams was "driving all over the road."
Witnesses said Dr. Mercer, driving about 40 miles an hour, had pulled
far to the right in an effort to avoid the fatal collision.
Williams died instantly and Dr. Mercer succumbed while en route to a
Waycross hospital. He suffered massive head and chest injuries, authorities

TUTEN PRAISES MERCER, MEMORIALS URGED
Congressman J. Russell Tuten eulogized the late Mayor
Joseph B. Mercer at the City Commission meeting this morning as “one of the
most outstanding, valuable and respected leaders in Brunswick’s history,” and
both Rep. Tuten and Mayor Pro Tem Harry Long proposed memorials to
Both the city and county commissions adopted resolutions in memory
of Dr. Mercer. The city resolution said in part: “…we shall not meet his
Rep. Tuten, referring to Dr. Mercer’s death last
Saturday in an auto collision near Waycross, noted that he had been looking
forward to the “joy and pride” of joining with the mayor and others in
dedicating the remodeled Municipal Building this afternoon, but “instead we come
…with sad hearts and contrite spirits as we observe a vacant chair.”
Dr. Mercer’s accomplishments in “such a short time,” said
Rep. Tuten were amazing. He performed an invaluable service to his
community which was greatly needed and at the time it was needed. No state had
a more conscientious doctor. No city had amore vigorous and dedicated public
servant. No family had a better father and husband. He was my close and
beloved friend. His efforts were untiring. His character was unquestionable.
He stood like a man.
“I know,” said Rep. Tuten to the commission, that “you will
maintain his high standards and complete his program.”
Rep. Tuten suggested that the commission “give consideration
to dedicating an appropriate memorial soon in the memory of and to the honor of
Dr. Joe Mercer, Brunswick’s most colorful and outstanding mayor. I hope
a portrait will be displayed on the appropriate wall in the city hall.
“You and I should be comforted by the fact that God claims clean,
honest, dedicated ‘men of action,’” said the Eight District representative.
Mayor Pro Tem Long said “the commissioners are formulating
plans for a befitting memorial to this dedicated man.” He added: “Our loss is
too great to be measured in words. The greatest tribute that can be paid to
Dr. Joe Mercer is that this commission and the citizens of Brunswick carry
out the programs that he initiated.”
Giving the invocation for the meeting was the Rev. Jack P.
Lowndes, pastor of Dr. Mercer’s church, the First Baptist, who
officiated at the late mayor’s funeral Monday.
The city’s resolution read in part: “As a public leader he was a
man of honor, of courage, of high purpose, with an abiding concern that right
should be done…As a friend he was a man of warmth, of trust, of steadfastness.
“In life, we the people of Brunswick did give him our hearts and our
hands; in death we stand bereft, knowing full well we shall not meet his like
The county’s resolution noted that Dr. Mercer’s death left a
“political void that will not easily be filled,” and said his “dedicated
purpose…was virtually contagious (and) glowed like a bright star in the
community he loved.” The resolution expressed to Dr. Mercer’s family
“genuine concern and sense of loss for the entire community.”
County Commission Chairman W.G. Moran said his “life is
richer through having known Dr. Joe Mercer…He was an outstanding
physician…and a dedicated and dynamic person devoted to the betterment of our
The Brunswick Press Club, in a letter to Mrs. Mercer
expressed sympathy and expressed admiration for the late mayor’s “never-failing
energy…he has left an indelible mark.”

MEYERS, Francis P.
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 23 July 1881; pg. 3 col. 4
SUDDEN DEATH—Mr. Francis P. Meyers, familiarly known as “Dock” Meyers, of this
county, died very suddenly a week ago last Sunday. He was perfectly well,
apparently, and in unusual good spirits during the early morning. After
breakfast he started over to Mr. Sallins’ place, and having proceeded a few
hundred yards, stopped at a negro shanty (his father’s cook’s) to get some
water. The members of the household, being about to start on a jaunt to church,
he told them to go ahead, and that he would shut up the house after he had
rested awhile.—Nothing more was seen of him until the family returned that
evening from church, when he was found lying face downward, with his head
resting on his folded arms, and one foot drawn up and lying carelessly over the
knee of the other leg. Efforts were made to rouse him, but upon examination he
was found to be dead. There were no marks of violence on his person, and the
presumption is that he died of apoplexy or heart disease, and, evidently,
without a struggle.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 6 October 1883; pg. 6 cols. 2 & 3
Mrs. Morgan, of Marion, Fla., arrived in our city last Tuesday, via
Waycross. She comes to mingle her tears with those of her family over their
recent sad afflictions. Mrs. Morgan is a daughter of Mrs. Spears, of this city,
consequently an aunt of Misses Maud Miller and Nettie Campbell, whose deaths we
chronicle in this issue.
SADDENED HOUSEHOLD—A single visit of the angel of death to any individual home
brings with it sadness enough for a life-time, but when he comes twice in
forty-eight hours, and strikes down the fairest flowers, the stroke is almost
past endurance. Such a sad fate has befallen the home of our townsman, J.J.
Spears. On Friday night last the spirit of little Nettie Campbell passed away,
and on the succeeding Sabbath she was followed by Miss Maud Miller, both nieces
of Mr. Spears, and both living under his roof. Miss Nettie’s parents are both
dead, and Miss Maud’s father, Mr. John W. Miller, has been dead a number of
years, but her mother still lives to mourn the loss of her only child, who only
a few days since enjoyed the blessings of full womanhood. That is indeed a sad
household, and one that calls forth the sympathy of all.

AFFRAY IN BRUNSWICK, GA.
During the year just closing, the town of
Brunswick has been more or less agitated by dissatisfaction with the present
municipal officers, as we learn by the Herald of that place. To remedy
this a conservative ticket was started, but before the election, Mr. MOORE,
Representative from Glynn county, had introduced one or two bills into the
Legislature, and they were passed. This only increased the excitement, and a
meeting was called, at which C.W. STYLES made Sunday remarks, denouncing the
manner in which these bills had been concocted and passed as that adopted by
tyrants, dishonorable and fraudulent. At this Mr. JACOB W. MOORE, (the
Representative above mentioned) rose from his seat and according to the
“Mr. Styles, if you say that anything I have done is dishonorable,
you say that which is palpably false.” To this Mr. Styles gave the lie, and Mr.
Moore responded in like manner. Mr. Styles—he being at one end of the building
and Mr. Moore at the other—called to the persons between them to down with their
heads. The firing from revolvers then commenced. Some say that Mr. Styles, and
some that Mr. Moore fired first. Mr. James Houston, and some one else it is
said fired. One ball took effect in Mr. Moore’s body entering towards the right
side, passing through a small part of the right lungs and stomach, and lodging
under the skin on the right of the spine. He survived but about an hour.
Friday morning an arrangement was made by which Mr. Styles should be
left in the custody of his friends till a judicial examination could be had, and
he then surrendered himself to the sheriff.

FATAL ACCIDENT--Mr. J. Berrien Moore, of Waycross, met with a serious accident
last week, whilst in the woods looking after some hands. It seems he had driven
a mule attached to a buggy. At a certain point where he stopped to speak to
some hands, the mule for the first time saw the umbrella which Mr. M. was
holding above him. Taking fright at this, he dashed away, throwing Mr. Moore
from the buggy, and injuring one of his legs very much. Hearing of the
accident, Dr. Blain, his brother-in-law, went at once for him, and brought him
to this city for treatment. All efforts, however, to restore the limb to its
normal condition proved futile, and on Thursday last Dr. Blain, assisted by Drs.
Burford, Hazlehurst and Davis, amputated the leg just above the knee. During
the night his symptoms grew worse, and at five o'clock yesterday morning his
spirit passed away. We are requested to announce that his funeral will take
place this (Saturday) afternoon at 5:00 o'clock, from the Episcopal church.

MRS. LUCY MORGAN
Aunt Lucy Morgan is dead. It is hard to
realize that we shall never more hear her familiar foot-fall, or see again her
cheerful face. A life so pure and happy, so consecrated and true, so fraught
with blessing to the world, should not be permitted to fade from the earth
without some attempt to engrave its picture upon the memory of living
acquaintances and friends. As we stand beside her newly made grave, let the
rush and whirl of this busy world be hushed long enough to analyze and
understand the secret springs and motives of her conduct and actions.
In this city her name has long been a household
word, and a synonym for all that was “pure and lovely and of good report,” and
though no longer with us, the memory of her good works will shed forth a rich
fragrance for years to come.
It was when quite young (the exact time not
known) that she connected herself with the Christian church, and to the end of
her long and useful life (seventy-three years) there was no swerving, faltering
or turning aside, but always and everywhere the same pure, true, consecrated
Her pew in the church was never vacant, except
from sickness or some absolutely unavoidable cause. It can be truly said that
she loved the church next to her Saviour. She was deeply interested in
everything pertaining to its welfare, and freely gave of her means and strength
to advance the cause of Christ. Her delight in listening to the ministration of
the word was far greater than that of the average hearer. Her frequent remark
was that she never heard a dull sermon. For years it was her custom to make and
preserve copious outlines of every sermon that she heard.
Mrs. Morgan’s gifts mentally were equal to
those of her heart. Well endowed by nature, she was also a great reader, and
during her long life gathered much useful information upon a variety of
subjects, but chiefly those relating to theology and the Bible.—She composed
well, and was almost the solitary representative in this community of what is
now a lost art—the old time custom of letter writing.
In summing up her life in this hurried sketch
we find one thing predominating—whether talking, writing or acting, there ran
through all that she did—like a thread of scarlet through a skein of silk—the
one single theme of consecration to Christ and devotion to the church. But she
has gone up higher, to mingle her praises with the throng around the throne,
and, as we write these lines, we involuntarily exclaim, “When shall we see her
like again!” Let us inscribe upon her tomb “She hat done what she could.”

Information was received in the city yesterday
that Mr. George D. Mozo had been fatally kicked by a mule on Tuesday night, at
Mr. Jas. Bailey’s place, about four miles from the city. From what we can
learn, Mr. Mozo went out to his brother-in-law’s place at Bailey’s mills. His
wife was stopping there, and he went to pay her a visit.
At night he went into the stable with his brother-in-law, Mr.
Bailey, and started into the stall where he thought his horse was fastened. He
made [a] mistake, however, and went in to the stall occupied by a mule, who
planted both feet in Mr. Mozo’s stomach, knocking him several feet away. He was
taken up and carried into the house and Dr. Hammond sent for.
Yesterday Dr. Hammond reported that he did not think there was but
little hope for his recovery. Later in the afternoon the report came in that
Mr. Mozo was dead.

MYERS, Lula (Dart)

A SAD DEATH—Mrs. H. Myers Passed Away Tuesday Morning.
Died, at 3:30 o’clock a.m., January 1st, 1901,
Lula Dart Myers, wife of Mr. H. Myers, of Tifton, Ga., and oldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. R. Dart, of Brunswick, Ga.
To live a happy, petted girlhood; to be a well-beloved wife, and to
die before the cares of life and motherhood furrowed the brow, and never the
bounding heart, is the happiest fat that can befall a woman.
Such has been the lot of Lula. Five years ago this March, she
married the man of her choice, and though she went with him to live at Tifton,
in the lovely little house he provided, her visits to her parents have been
frequent, and each return brought to us a knowledge of her happy contentment,
and the certainty that Lula was beloved by her husband’s large family circle, as
she had been by her own. When she came this Christmas there was hope of even
greater happiness then the season usually brings, and when her little son was
laid in her arms, and we were assured that “all was well,” our congratulations
were showered on the proud parent with little thought that before three days
were done, Lula would have left this world, and all its joys and sorrows
forever. Yet, such has been the case—and today we lay her sweet young body in
the grave; while the grief of her husband and parents, the sobs of her sisters,
sad cries of her dear little baby, fall on non-hearing ears.
There is no comfort for thee so sadly bereft, but for her our Lula
there should be only joy in her now and perfect life.
No more nervous apprehensions, no more pain and tears for her! From
happiness to heavenly bliss, from a bed of pain to peace unspeakable, Lula has
Our dear little nervous girlie,
Painless and quite now,
With the peace of an endless restfulness
Stamped on her marble brow,
Has gone to her home in Heaven,
And waving her beautiful hand,
Called to us, “Come! I am waiting,
Safe is this sorrowless land.”
AUNT FANNIE LOU.
