Social Circle Athletic Club in
Athens Y. M. C. A. Friday. Meh.
7th. This is their last basket ball
game and was a crowning success.
It was a fast game and the score
was very close at the close of the
first half, but in the last half S.
C. C. showed Social Circle and
the people of Athens that she was
there strong by their swift play
ing. The score was 21-27 in favor
of s. c. c.
Nine car loads of students and
teachers went to Athens to root
for the team. They helped to
win this game by their enthusiasm
and hearty support.
Coach Mark Anthony announc
ed baseball season would open on
March 11, and they expected to
make it as big a success as our
basket ball season proved to be.
This is starting out baseball with
a high standard because the bas
ket ball team played eleven
games and won eight.
Mr. George Rusk, of Atlanta,

T. E. HUFFMAN
KILLED W. P. HOUSE.
Saturday afternoon at 4 o’clock
T. E. Huffman, station agent at
the Junction, shot W. I’. House
and he died within a few minutes.
There are many rumors afloat
about how the killing occurred
and it is a very hard matter to get
the straight of it. but we have
learned that it happened about
In the morning House went
down to get his check for his ser
vices as baggage master, he hav
ing been let out of service several
days ago, and he and Huffman
had some heated words and House
and him went to blows. House
getting the best of the tight. They
were separated and House went
on to town.
After dinner someone phoned
up to town several times and tried
to get in connection with House,
which they did after so long a
time and told him to come down
to the depot and straighten up
his affairs. He got in a car and
went to the Junction and parked
the car in front of the East End
Grocery Store and went over to
the freight depot and went into
the office and talked with the
clerks a few minutes and asked
for George Lovick and was told
that Lovick was over in the yard.
He left the office and was going
by Huffman's office when Huff
man opened the door and called
him. It seems like House saw
that serious trouble was about to
happen and started to run. when
Hugman shot him in the back and
he ran and jumped off the plat
form and ran about 35 or 40 feet
before he sank to tho ground,
where he expired within a few
minutes. In falling he struck a
broken piece of tiling and cut his
face pretty badly. Only one shot
taking effect and that went entire
ly through his body and came out
just below his heart. The other
seemed to go wild.

To Pump Out Flaming Oil.
A recent tire In which a half-barrel
tank of oil proved a stumbling block
to the firemen and eventually led to
the destruction of a building suggested
to rue, writes a correspondent, that
a suction pump with u lung nozzle
could be mounted on a two-wheel truck
and used to draw such burning liquid
out of a building. One operator could
hold the nozzle of the pump down In

A SLUGGISH LIVER
Crashes into sour bile, making
you sick and you lose
a day’s work.
Calomel salivates! TPs mercury. •
Calomel acts like dynamite on a
sluggish liver. When calomel comes
into contact with sour bile it crashes
into it, causing cramping and nausea.
If you feci bilious, headachy con
stipated and all knocked out just go
to your druggist and got, a bottle of
Dodson’s Liver Tone for a few cents,
which is a harmless vegetable sub
stitute for dangerous calomel. Take
a spoonful and if it doesn’t start
your liver and straighten you up
better and quicker than nasty calomel
and without making you sick, you
just go back and get vour money.
If you take calomel today you'll be
sick and nauseated tomorrow; be
sides, it may salivate you, while if
you take Dodson's Liver Tone you
will wake up feeling great, full of
ambition and ready for work or play.
It is harmless, pleasant and safe io
g.vg to children; they like it.
In Everyday Life.
It Is well to remember that excel*
ent tilings are rare.
