This and That NEWS YOU READ IN YOUR HERALD OF 25 YEARS AGO TODAY The will of the late H. W. Hill will be admitted to probate in the county court on ?"ov. 7. disposing of one of the big estates of Macon county. Mr. Kill's invention of hog ringers was the fortunate business stroke that founded his fortune, which was increased by judicious investments. Under the will the home place at William and Pine streets goes to the son, John X. Hill. The house occupies about a blocl of ground and is one of the most handsome of the city, making with the James Millikin home to the south one of the show places of Decatur. There was much speculation as to whether the death of Mr. Hill would cause this place to be cut up into lots, but it is stated that the homestead will be maintained just as it is.
