Capt. Dallis Dead.
Well Known Traveling Man Passes Away a few Days Ago.

An Atlanta dispatch of 27th says: Capt. Geo T. Dallis, one of the best known traveling men in the state, died early today at the Pine Ridge Sanitarium after an illness of several months.  Tuberculosis was the cause.

Captain Dallis was born and reared in the vicinity of LaGrange, and considered that his home, although he had not actually lived there for several years.  He made Atlanta his headquarters.

For seven years, Capt. Dallis was in the service of the federal government, in the pension bureau, but left it because of ill health in 1902.  Since that time he has been in the cigar business.  He is survived by two children, Ernest E. Dallis of the Atlanta Constitution, and Miss Carrie Morgan Dallis of Brenau College.

The funeral and interment will take place at LaGrange tomorrow.

Few men in Georgia were better known or better liked by a large circle of acquaintances than was Captain Dallis, who was of genial temperament and unusual intelligence.  He was 58 years old.  His surviving son is one of the state’s most prominent young newspaper men.
