About fifty of these special agents for districts and counties were pres cnt—Indeed every county special lo cal agent reporting yesterday, with one or two exceptions, and they will likely arrive today.

The suggestions and formulae contained In these bul letins are the result of actual experi mentation which has been successful for several yeurs past. These dem onstrators consult with the local agent, and he must visit their dem onstration plots at least once a month during the time of the preparation and cultivation of the corn or cotton crop. He Inspects the work and takes notes on the processes and results sending In his reports In book form to the department at the end of the year. One local agent In an average county in north Georgia had last year thirty-four demonstrators among the middle-aged planters: this year he has fifty-eight, and in addition these regular fifty-eight he has large number of "co-operators” with whom he works, advising them and Riving them the advantagp of the bul letin “lessons and examinations practical farming methods."

Overseer Voliva, Dowie’s Successor Had Long Line of Tribulations Chicago, fll„ March 13.—When Zion City passed from the bands of the Federal court Into the control of Wil bur Glenn Voliva last week It was believed that the trials and tribula tions of the famous community found the late “Elijah" Dowie were about ended. The ending of the re ceivership through the payment of 9*00,000 by Voliva's brokers was ac cepted as the beginning of the long promised "new era," under which Zion's factories and business enter prises are to yield great dividends to the cltlxens. But Overseer -Voliva, whom liowle designated as his successor shortly before his death, bss found his path a thorny one. Ousted from Zion City, sued for debt and thrown Into Jail have been Included among his ex periences since he assumed the lead ership. Overcoming all obstacles and For selling the fluid of which In some circles there Is frequently an exchange of demands for "two fin gers" of It, ■ country negro. Grant Wallace came to grief and the police station Sunday. He was tried before Mayor Pro Tem Ben Woods yester day morning, snd on account of the defendant’s having recently lost “two fingers,” he got off at half price- saving a clean f 100 as a sort of acci dental, Incidental, accident Insurance, ji rising superior to all difficulties, Vol iva finally succeeded In gaining finan cial control of the 91,330.000 property of the community. And now he has to battle for poll- tlcal control of the little city, without which his spiritual leadership and fin ancial authority will avail him little. The matter will be settled In the pri mary election In Zion City tomorrow. Upon the result depends the question of Voliva's supramey. The political campaign between Voliva and his op ponents has been one of extreme bit terness. Voliva Is charged by Ills political foe* with having threatened terrible punishment to all members of Zion who voted against him. De spite the alleged threats the opposi tion Is keeping up Its fight to the last and expresses confidence In bringing about Volvla’s overthrow at the polls tomorrow. The negro two weeks ago had two .fingers pared off In a lathe and had not recovered from the wounds. The police picked him up 8unday selling whiskey to make up for lost time. His physical condition saved him the ex treme penaltr usually meted to the tiger- defendant Mr. Walter Math ews, on whose place near Hull the negro lived, paid his fine yesterday MHASFS Danielsville Court Was Full of Criminal Busi* ness and Several UilU«U ll CUS;S. (Special to The Banner.) Danielsville, Ga., March 13.—Court is not in session here today and there will be no sessions all this week, Last week was a very busy one, great many criminal ca3es being dis posed of, and among the number were several of Interesting civil nature and a larger number than for many terms of serious and Important criminal cases, much Interest Delng taken In these latter. Court Next Week. Judge Meadow will reconvene court next Monday and there Is probably more business to be disposed of right away than all the next week can set* adjudicated, so If deemed necessary the presiding Judge will continue the court from day to day or call an ad journed team at some later dater In the spring. Aged Negro's Gold Mine. One of the most Interesting rases on the list of civil business wa* the case In which ejectment proceedings were Instituted against Charles Me- Daniel, colored, the petitioners being O. 8. and 8. C. Dove, white citizen*. The negro Is 97 years of age. He bought a farm from the Dove broth ers, paying a small part of the pur chase money on the property and giv ing his notes for the balance. The deferred payments were not met, was shown, and became past due. the meantime, however, the nearly hundred-year-old darkey made a rich find on the place—an almost parallel “ase to that of the man in the New Testament parable who discovered treasure In a field, straightway went and sold all that he had and bought the possession, with the exception of the little detail, however, that didn't sell all that lye had and that, ‘•bile he did buy the field, he failed to meet his payments upon It. The rich find was lp the shape of a gold vein. The state geologist and state chemist made assays of the ore taken cut and it was discovered to be rich— the samples of ore tested by them and also samples sent to the assay -office In Philadelphia indicating that there was gold In paying quantities and ranging from $20 to 930 a ton. But that was not all, sapphires and rubles and garnets were also found on tbe place. Tbe ejectment action resulted In an order from tbe court directing that ,the property be sold and the balance of purchase be paid to the former owners who sold the place to the aged negro. One Year for Manslaughter. One of the ltghteet sentences the history of the state was given one defendant for manslaughter—In fact, the shortest term the law al laws as a penalty for this offense. In the case of -Arthur Dixon, a white man, charged with the murder of Grover Drake, another white, the Jury found Dixon guilt of manslaughter and recommended that he be given tbe lightest sentence which the law allows—a very unusual recommends tlon. The Jury acceded to the rec ommendation and Dixon was sen tenced to one year In the chalngang. Two Othsr Murder Catss. Lonnie 81ms, colored, was placed on trial for murder, the killing of an other negro named George Williams He was found guilty and recommend to the mercy of the court, receiv ing a life sentence. Jim Powers, also a negro, was tried for the murder of another negro with whom he had engaged In a personal difficulty, a quarrel about who had lilt nerest to a mark at a target prac tice. He was found guilty of man slaughter and waa given a sentence fifteen years. Town Marshal Fined. Charlie Kidd, marshal of Daniels- vllle, was placed on trial for shoot ing at another, having shot Charles Snelllngs on last Christmas day. He was found guilty and given, two years. Will Daniel, colored, was also found guilty of shooting st another, the shooting occurring while the negro hnd several while boys were on possum hunt. Daniels was sentenced the gang for two years. NEW STATION Contractor Has Arrived Placed Order For Some of Meterial and ' Work Btgins. Former Congressman Henry Boutell, who has been nominated by President Taft to be United Slates minister to Protuga], was defeated for the republican congressional nomina tion In the ninth Illinois district at the primaries last fall.

Work has actually been begun the new 9*5,000 passenger station which the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company Is to erect for the city Athens. Contractor H. A. Walkup, of Rich mond, has arrived In the city and planning the details of the prelimi nary work rapidly and carefully, that when the large force of hands gets down to active work the build ing may be pushed as rapidly as pos sible. Yesterday tne work of the removal of the brokerage business of Rowland ft Co. from the old freight depot, now a part of the old frame station in use, to the uptown freight terminals the road on Broad street, was begun end the first steps were taken pre paratory to rolling the present ware house to the lot at the rear of the Boston bakery. Several carloads material have arrived and the con tractor is busy negotiating for ot material, labor, and sub-contracts. Mr. Walkup expressed the intention yesterday of giving the Athens firms every order for material which he ran—giving the home people tbe pref erence In every case where be can get material at as low figures here as he would have to pay elsewhere. Doubtless the local dealers In lumber, brick, cement and lime, roofing, plumb ing goods, hardware and the other big lots of goods In the construction lino which go Into such a building can give the contractor the prices and the qunllty of material he will deaians, and his spending money for a large part of the material here will mean much added to the circulation. Be sides, there will be a number of la borers and skilled mechanics given employment while the building Is In progress. ** i* The new station Is to be a passen ger station only for use of tbe only through line passing Athens, and will accommodate also the Gainesville Midland passenger trains as hereto fore—the S. A. U leasing station fa cilities to that road. These roads al ready have large freight terminals In the heart of the city. The new pas senger station will he a building In keeping with the Importance of Ath ens among the towns and cltlea along the lines ot- this system, and will therefore J>c one of which the road will be Justly proud. It will cover a much larger floor space than tho pretty new station of the Southern, which Is Just receiving Its finishing touches. In addition It Is on a higher site and will be a taller building. From the foundation up for some ten feet It will be constructed of brown hough-finished stone. Above the stone It will be built of colored pressed brick and the finish will be tasty and striking. The style of architecture Is Impressive and handsome, while It Is thoroughly business-like in appear ance. The appointments will be per fect ns to arrangement Inside and every convenience for tbe traveling public, both ladles and gentlemen, will be afforded for all sorts or weather. Outside the building enthe north side of tbe station, a handsome Iron shelter will extend over tbe tracks, the trains pasting under thai shed. The shed will also extend east out to the College avenue bridge and will be brought round on tbe south side s reasonable depth. The walk way* under the shed and the ap proaches to the station will be of some material like granolithic or c< ment. Altogether the polnta to be empbalxed In tbe new station will b. stability, sufficient size, comfort and accommodation for the patrons of the road, untlllty and neat, Impressive ap pearance. “Foley’s Honey and Tar Is the best cough remedy I ever used as It quick ly stopped a severe cough that had long troubled me.” says J.
