Sudden Death.

Captain Robert A. Harkie, of Kingston, died very suddenly at the Bartow House on Wednesday night last. He came into the room where a party of his friends were enjoying a social game of cards complaining of being unwell and laid down on the bed. In a few moments he asked for someone to bathe his face with a wet towel. He was then seen to be very ill and a messenger was started for a physician but the unfortunate man died in a very few minutes.

Capt. Harkie was a generous whole souled gentleman, was once a conductor on the Central road of this state and leaves a devoted wife. His remains were interred in Atlanta.
