Mr. Louis Nottingham Juhan died at the home of his brother, Mr. W. J. Juhan, at 1:45 yesterday, after an illness of some two months.

Ever since it became known that Louis Juhan was confined to his bed by sickness, there were anxious inquiries after his condition. He was missed by his friends, friends who knew and loved him, friends accustomed to his smiling greeting and warm hand clasp, and they longed for his bright presence.

These friends waited for him, and as the days passed they expected to find him among them at any time. So when the news of his death was made known it came as a distinct shock. Louis Juhan dead! It was as a blow. And as the first shock wore away, those who knew wondered if it could be true. There were many who knew nothing of his serious illness, and to these the news brought a pain to the heart.

He was only 34 years old, and had lived all his life in Macon, having been connected with his brother with the Union Dry Goods Co. since its organization. From a boy he had the faculty of making friends, of making people love him. Thus he became popular throughout the city, and with all classes. As boy and man he was beloved by all, and his death will be mourned by many.

He is survived by two brothers, Mr. W. J., of Macon, and Mr. Chas. J., of Dallas, Tex., and one sister, Mrs. J. W. Spencer, of Cuthbert.

The funeral will be held at 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, that his brother Charles may arrive from Texas. More definite information of the funeral arrangements will be announced later.
