Allen, May 1893. He has never missed and annual renewal since, and although he is taking the daily now ho is tending the weekly to his brother at Nichols, and says he exacts to keep it up as Tong aa be lives. The Gazette has several subscribers on its list who have been taking the pajier since the year it started and ap preciates each one of them as an old and tried friend. From year *to year a name now and then ha) been dropped from tho roll because the subscriber, of 25 or more yearo standing, had gone to the Groat Beyond.

Jury cases in the United States Court will probably be completed this after noon and* members of the traverse jury will be discharged for the term, says the Albany Herald of December 17. One reason that the adjournment of court has been hastened is that so many persons have pleaded guilty. A number of moonshiners entered pleas this morning and were given shorter sen tences for doing so. Yesterday after noon two Tift county men, John Sea and George Sen, grandson and grandfa ther, respectively, were convicted of il- licit distilling. The young man drew a Sentence of one year and one day, while the older one received a sentence of six months and a fine of $100. Jas. S. Young, a former R. F.
