DEATH OF MR. J. R. COLLINS. (husband of Josephine Babb)
  Mr. Joseph R. Collins, a well-known citizen of Baldwin county, died at his home in the North-eastern portion of the county, about five o'clock in the afternoon of Monday, the 3rd inst.
   Some time the past summer, Mr. Collins fell and injured his side by striking it against a stump. He suffered great pain at the time, and was compelled to take his bed. He, however, had apparently recovered from the effects of the injury, until about two weeks ago, he contracted a cold and it settled in his injured side. He was again confined to his bed, but on the day of his death, he was able to get about the house and yard. A few minutes before his death, he went out on the back porch to get a drink of water, and as he was returning into the house he fell in the doorway. He was carried to his room by members of his family, and died in about five minutes.
  His remains were laid to rest, in the family burial ground, Tuesday afternoon.
  Mr. Collins was born in Baldwin county, Nov. 16th, 1836, and had just entered upon his sixty-sixth year. He was an ex-Confederate soldier, having served with an artillery company during the war between the states. He is survived by his wife and seven children.
  Mr. Collins was a successful farmer, a kind husband and father, and a good neighbor. His death is regretted by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
