(From Athens Banner-Herald) Promising Crops In Jackson John Farmer of Jackson county on the Shady- Creek, says they have had fine rains and crops are very promising. This applies to both corn and cotton. The 'hopper has done no serious harm and the pest is dis appearing. Farmer tells us that land owners on Sandy Creek for several miles on that stream have cleared and ditched the broad bottom lands that had been abandoned for many years, and have them planted in corn. Farmer says he reclaimed ten acres of this land and it is said by all who have seen it that the corn will average at least fifty bushels per acre. The stalks are fifteen feet high and heavily fruited. There are some broad flats on this streaiji and . - t..:ey are brought back into cultivation farmers will make corn, wet or dry.

Cos., of LaGrange, was making his usual circuit of the cities of that section of the state, when he was taken ill in Valdosta. He was rushed to the hospital and his par ents notified of his ‘serious illness, but before they could go to Val dosta, a message came telling 6f his demise. His death was ..caused from, a complication of troubles that fol lowed a serious illness here last win ter of flu-pneumonia. Since that time, he had been afflicted with a grave heart and kidney disturbance that had caused him much concern, and this was the immediate cause of his death. Mr. Williamson was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Williamson. He was born and reared in Jeffer son, and . was thirty~years of age. He was educated at Martin Institute and Emory University, and was one of the most popular young men ever living in Jefferson. He had a genial personality; was affable, gracious and courteous, and made friends wherever he went. In his business life, he met and seiflfed his patrons with the same that marked his social life, ana he was successful to a marked degree. No young man ever entered life brighter pros pects' than did Gus Williamson, and none had more friends to mourn his untimely death. His body reached Jefferson Mon day at noon, and funeral services were held at the Methodist church at four o’clock, interment following in Woodbine cemetery. The services were conducted by Rev. L. B.

Carter and Will Roberts, sang beau tifully the songs that were loved by the deceased, who possessed a won derful talent for music himself,, and who had so often sung in the choir that furnished the music for his burial service. Of the numbers rendered, one was a beautiful selec tion that Mr. Williamson sang for his parents on the occasion of his last visit to them at their home in Newnan. The pall bearers were: M. M. Bry an, C. T. Storey, Jr., A. H. Moore, W. T. Bryan, Jr., J. C. Smith, R. D. Moore, M. L. Mobley, Jr., S. C. Mor rison.

The body, of Gus Williamson lies today beneath a mound of beautiful flowers, sent by loving friends- and relatives; his spirit has returned to the God who gave it; his family and friends are bowed with sorrow and grief, but in the hearts of every one who knew him, and having traveled Georgia extensively his acquaintance was large, there will ever live a re membrance of his bright, happy na ture, his congenial companionship, his cordial temperament and his po lite individuality.

Road Board Still Hearing Requests For State Mileage No attention is being paid by the state highway board to the political claims made by certain guberna torial candidates that the board has only 49 1-2 miles of additional state highway to allot. Holding that it has approximately 800 additional miles to add to the state highway system the board is going right ahead with its hearings on the pe titions of those who desire roads in cluded. On Friday the members of the >ioard will go to Griffin, where they will hear several petitions. One of these requests that the road from Franklin to Hogansville be taken into the state system and another urges the inclusion of the road from Griffin to Columbus. Thursday the board heard a num ber of petitions in its rooms atvthe state capitol. One asked the relo cation of the road from- Hinton to Talking Rock so that it would run from Hinton to Jasper. Another urged that the road from Homer to Maysville be given state mainte nance on January 1, 1927, instead of on September 10, 1927 as heretofore agreed. Still another seeks to have the road from Maysville to the Hall county line taken over for mainte nance by the state highway depart ment. Several months ago the board mapped. out a program for the mile age hearings. It was desired that every group of citizens who wished to be heard before allotments ars made should have an opportunity to present their claims. The board also took the position that So many people are interested in the various projects that wherever possible it would be better for the three mem bers of the board to go to the locali ties at interest than to require scores of citizens to go to the ex pense, and loss of time which a trip to Atlanta would occasion.—Atlanta Journal.
