Death of a Good Citizen.

Mr. Oliver H. Richards, one of Bartow county’s best citizens, died at his home in the northeastern portion of the county on Monday morning last at 8 o’clock. He had been in feeble health for the past eighteen months, but only took to his bed about two weeks ago. He was about 70 years of age.

Mr. Richards had followed farming all his life, and had been very successful, by industry, perseverance and economy having accumulated possessions that rendered him comfortable. He was the very soul of honesty, and though not a member of any church he did many good deeds, for which he was greatly esteemed by all who knew him, and was regarded as a model man and good citizen. He had lived on the place where he died for twenty-five years. He leaves behind him a wife and three children, one son and two daughters.
