This Popular Young Railroad Man Dies in Atlanta.

The many friends of Maj. J. L. McCollum and family will be pained to learn of the death of Mr. “Mack” McCollum the eldest son of Maj. And Mrs. J. L. McCollum.  He was about 32 years of age, had been married, his young, beautiful wife having preceded him to the grave only a few months ago. He was chief clerk in his father’s office, that of superintendent of the W. & A. R. R. in Atlanta, and was a great favorite with everybody connected with the road.  The genuine regret expressed by the railroad men, one and all, is pathetic, so warm were their affections for the young man.

He became ill only a few days ago with pneumonia which made short work of him.

Maj. McCollum has the sympathy of all in his deep affliction, especially by his fellow employees of the road.
