I'p until last October, when he con

was one of the best specimens of
manhood in this section. He was a
physical giant. A few years ago,
when he lived at Wiugate, he walked
to Monroe In the morning, carried the
mail over his route before noon,
again in the. afternoon, and then
walked back to Wiugate and worked
several hours on his farm before re
tiring. He could also perform other
Teats requiring equal if not more
strength and endurance. He never
fully recovered from the fever. For
a while. It Is true, he resumed his
work but his strength soon gave way,
forcing him to return to his bed. He
gradually grew weaker until the end
