AM) W. M. HOWARD
The nomination for three aider
men and one dispensary commis
sioner was held Saturday last and
it was a big land slide, a veritable
Waterloo, the ent ire citizens ticket
winning by the biggest majorities
From the time the tickets were
put in the race two weeks ago,
active work was done by advo
cates of each ticket, and up to
the day of the nomination claims
were made by friends of both sides
that their favorites would win.
Some few supporters were so con
findent as to predict a majority
of 100 for the Citizens ticket, and
while it was generally believed
this ticket would be successful,
none were prepared for such over
The one battle cry was a one
man ticket against the Citizens
ticket and the count of the little
white ballots shows how the peo
ple felt about it.
The vote was more than three
to one, the biggest majority being
188, out of a little over 800 votes
polled. The following is the vote
Otis A. Murphey 256
J.C. Collier 230

tled the matter. The new officials

things are to he managed for
another twelve months.
Sad Accident at Milner.
A sad accident occurred at Mil
ner Sunday morning, in which a
young man was seriously injured
by the passenger train due in
Barnesville from Atlanta at 10
o’clock. Mr. Nat Crawley, son
of Mr. J. Lee Crawley, was walk
ing along the track, unconscious
of the rapid approach of the train.
It struck him, knocking him
several feet, breaking his left arm
in two places, making several
severe gashes on his head and neck
and otherwise injuring him. The
train was delayed for more than
half an hour and every attention
possible given him. Dr. K. L.
Reid, of Barnesville, the local
surgeon of the Central, was called
in as early as possible and render
ed every possible medical assis
tance. The young man is in quite
a serious condition and the acci
dent is greatly regretted.
Notice to the Farmers-We
have assumed charge of the Granite
Warehouse and are now ready to weigh
and handle your cotton to the very
best advantage. We feel as though we
can handle your cotton as well as any
warehousemen in Middle Georgia. If
any warehousemen can show you where
they can get more money for your cot
ton than we can, we are ready to make
the difference good out of our pocket.
We are in this business for the farmers
interest, not to buy cotton and make
it to our interest. A trial will prove
this. Mr. C. K. Sappington will be our
salesman and will be glad to have his
friends call on him. Yours trul/,

The Macon correspondent of
The Constitution, in Monday’s
issue, has the following about the
work of Prof. Jere M. Pound, su
perintendent of the public schools
of the city of Macon, which will
be read with interest by all our
“Prof. Jere M. Pound, superin
tendent, gives notice that the
public schools of the city of
Macon and county of Bibb will
open Monday, September 22, The
books for registration of pupils
will be opened on Monday, .Sep
tembers. All new pupils applying
for admission into the schools
must present physician’s certifi
cate of successful vaccination.”
The indications are that the
next term will be the most suc
cessful in the quarter of a century
history of the schools. The ad
ministration of Superintendent
Pound has been popular, satis
factory and a great success in
every respect. The board of ed
ucation feels that they selected
wisely and well when they elected
Prof. Pound as the successor of
Superintendent Abbott, when that
gentleman resigned to accept a
chair in the faculty of the State
Normal school at Athens.

able comment. When completed,
which will be in a few days, it
will be greatly appreciated.
