Mr. J. W. Hicks Dead.

A Well Known Railroad Man Passes Away.

Mr. J. W. Hicks, a well known passenger agent for the Western and Atlantic railroad, died in Dawson county, where he had previously gone for his health, a few weeks before, on last Sunday. He had been in bad health for a number of months and his doctors advised rest and quiet. His trouble was dropsy. Mr. Hicks was reared in Bartow county, being a son of Mr. W. J. Hicks, late a member of the board of county commissioners, whose residence is near Pine Log. He went into the army a youth of sixteen and did valiant service in the ranks of the 1st Ga. Cavalry. He was always a kind hearted whole-souled genial boy and man, and his comrades in war and acquaintances and associates since the war speak in the most pleasant terms of him.

He has been with the Western and Atlantic railroad for twelve years or over and always gave satisfaction in his work. He leaves a family of four children, two daughters and two sons.

His remains were conveyed through the country from where he died to Pine Log and there interred on Tuesday.
