Sandy was one of the beat known and best lik ed and respected colored men in Ma eon. He was the grandson of Aunt Puss Martin, lately deceased, whom a great many of our people, of both races, hold in affectionate remember anee, and the son of Hannah Jones, a worthy daughter of a worthy mother. She has the sympathy of all in the loss of her beloved son. Sandy has long been a familiar figure in Macon, having for many years been meeting the trains at the depot, and serving around the hotel and doing other work that brought him in con tact with many people. They all liked him and trusted him. With bis own race he was very prominent and had great influence. He passed away ex pressing the firm conviction that his Heavenly Father had forgiven his sins and would receive him into the realms of the blessed.

Road in Macon District.- A citizen who has recently been over most of the good roads in District Three reports that while the sand clay roads are no boulevards the change from what they were before the good roads movement is tremendous. There are a few bad spots where new dirt has rec ently been put on the road bed, but two mules haul four bales of cotton to town with ease, and an automobile can keep up a ten to fifteen mile clip without any trouble. When it is remembered that three years ago a pair of mules could hardly haul an empty wagon to town this time of the year the im. provement is appreciated. Of course the rock roads are unaffected by the seasons unless their freedom from dust in winter makes them better then. The New Dletrict Attorney.
