BRUTAL CRIME COMMITTED BY NEGRO;
BURNED ALIVE WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Crime Committed Near Athens.—More
Than Three Thousand People
Said to Be at Scene of
, • Burning.
.A negro by the name of John Lee Eb
erhart foully murdered Mrs. Walter E.
Lee Wednesday morning in Oconee
county by shooting her in the back and
head with both loads of a double bar
rel shot gun. Tlie negro concealed him
self in the barn and when Mrs. Lee
came out to milk the cows he attacked
her and when she ran he shot her in
the back as stated above.
Two Oconee negroes were passing
and heard the gun tire and saw the
woman fall. They ran to the scene
but Eberhart had fled. Immediately
a posse was formed and the negro fi
nally captured in the afternoon in Ath
ens. He was placed in the Clarke
comity jail. Early Wednesday night
a crowd estimated at 3000 men gather
ered around the jail, took Eberhart out,
carried him to the scene of the crime
and burned him. The gun with which
the negro did the shooting had been
stolen from Mr. Lee, husband of Ihe
IN THE GEORGIA
The average man doesn't calculate
on going toa hospital. He feels that
others are liable to go but that he is
an exception to the general rule that
will get sick.
For nine days I was an inmate and
one learns from experience—without
doubt the hospital is one of the great
est assets of Georgia Baptists. It is
one of the best equipped institutions
in the state, or in the South, and Dr.
J. M. Long is one of the sanest and
most aggressive leaders in the work of
caring for the sick that can be found
in the South.
Bro. J. F Eden, who was a resident
of Winder and whose son, J. F. Jr.,
was pastor here for quite awhile, is
&ie popular chaplain, and his bright,
cheerful, helpful visits to the bedrid
den patients daily are a great blessing.
One of the finest X-Ray machines in
the country is operated by Dr. Clark,
one of'the most pleasgnt and genial
men it has been my pleasure to meet.
The religious atmosphere of the in
stitution is simply splendid. There is
not a finer corps of nurses anywhere,
always ready to help the suffering.
Miss Pearl Miller was my special nurse
a Canadian by birth and a Georgian
by adoption, she spent quite awhile
overseas with the Emory Unit, and is
one of the finest and most experienced
nurses in the state. I was surely for
tunate in falling into the hands of thLs
fine woman, and shall never forget her
People are coming and going inces
santly, day and night, and people of all
states and creeds are treated alike.
Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians,
Christians, Episcopalians, Congrega
tionalists, Seventh Day Adventists,
Catholics, Unitarians, Universalists,
Lutherans, Christian Science, Church
of Christ, Church of God, Xazarenes,
Holiness and Mormons from Georgia,
Florida, Alabama, North and South
Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Tex
as. Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New
York, Kansas, Michigan, Illinois, Vir
ginia, Washington, D. C„ Kentucky,
Louisiana, pay patients and free pa
tients are alike helped back to health.
* A handsome new home for the nurs
es has just been completed out in the
heart of the burned district, and the
girls were moving into it as I left,
y A pretentious program is now on to
complete speedily one of the finest
plants in the United States and Geor
gia Baptists are solidly behind it and
will speedily put it over.
Before going I had suffered a lot
with a stone in my left kidney and
deeply appreciateed relief. Dr. Ed
Jones and Dr. Montague Boyd were
as kind and helpful to me as were
Drs. Almond and the Winder physici
’ ans. I shall never forget the flowers
the letters and the visits from hun
dreds of friends. Surely no man ever
had more and received more royal
treatment from them than did the writ
er during his illness.
The Atlanta preachers are a royal
bunch and how their visits did cheer
\ 1 feel it in my heart to thank every
/one for their kindness: it would be
impossible to do it personally.

fine program is being prepared in keep
ing with the occasion which is the reg

There are too many dogs running at
large without muzzles in our city. Or
dinance No. 114 of the City of Win
der prohibits a dog running at large
unless it has a muzzier fastened on it
head sufficient to keep it from biting
any person or object. So you see at
once the law does not mean a halter,
but a muzzle.
This is a good law and has been pre
served by the city fathers since the
year 1915, and I hope if you own a
dog or expect to own one that you will
c*ill at the clerk’s office and read Or
dinance No.. 114, and observe same
not later than March Ist.
Also make your self acquainted with
Ordinance No. 126 in regard to Hog
Pens, as there is a change in this
law since last year.
You cannot locate a pen less than
one hundred feet of a dwelling or well
from which water is used, and said
pen must contain not less than 175
square yards per hog or pig. I trust
that this law will be resjjbcted not
later than March Ist, as ft is highly
important that we take every care and
precaution in protecting the health of
our people. Respt.

Chief of Police.

These contests will all be conduct
ed with extreme fairness. No names

but each will be numbered. The judges
will be competent, disinterested people,
