Death of Dr. Tucker.

Georgia is called upon to mourn the loss of one of her best and greatest men. Dr. H. H. Tucker, editor of the Christian Index, and the foremost minister of the Baptist church in the State, died at 6 o’clock last Monday morning. Dr. Tucker had been troubled with insomnia for some time, and on Saturday night he got up in the middle of night, and went into the bath room.

In a short while Mrs. Tucker heard him groaning as if in pain, and on going into the bath room she saw that the window was open, and on the ground, twenty feet below, the doctor was lying groaning as in great agony. When brought into the house and examined it was found that his collar bone and several ribs were broken, and Dr. Hunter Cooper, his son-in-law, was fearful that he had been internally injured.

It is supposed that he must have been sitting in the bath room window resting, and dropped asleep, when he lost his balance and fell out, injuring himself.

He lingered in an unconscious condition until the time above stated. Verily a great man in Israel has fallen.
