Heart Attack at 10 O'clock Last Night is Fatal

Fletcher Collins-a resident of this community for 54 years-died at his home on Ford street last night from a sudden heart attack. Mr. Collins had gone to the Chas. Dillon home at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and while there was seized with an attack that brought unconsciousness. He was taken home where he later regained consciousness and was apparently improving until affected by a sudden stroke shortly before midnight.
Mr. Collins was 75 years old and had lived here since 1866. For many years he was city marshal. He is survived by a widow and one daughter, Mrs. Fannie Grinnell of Americus. Mrs. Mannie Casad of Los Angeles and T. E. Collins of Traverse are the only brother and sister living.
Funeral services probably will be held some time Sunday afternoon. They will be delayed until a daughter of Mrs. Collins arrives from Ohio.
