ATTENTION DEMOCRATS !
It has been proposed by several of
the leading Democrats of the county
that We have a grand rally here on the
evening of the 16 :h Inst, and at the re
quest of many Democrats l hereby call
a meeting of the Dougherty County
Democrats for next Tuesday evening
at 8:30 to consider this matter and to
take such steps as may seem proper.
Vice-President B. L. Weston will pre
side and will be the official head of the
club, during my absence.
I hope that a good crowd may be
present on Tuesday evening and thus
show that you appreciate the efforts of

Denver, Aug. 11.—The second day of

people and*-the headquarters of tbs'
various clubs presented an animated ap

day wu3 the grand encampment. The
session was secret, and very little could
be learned of the proceedings. There
was no competive drill, because Grand
Master Gobin thought it would not be
the proper thing. An" exhibition drill
was held, however, at River Front park
and a large crowd witnessed it. Thera
was some disappointment because only
twp commauderies appeared to take
part. They were California, No. 1,

A jUan Broke His Back Lifting Bags ol

Statesboro, Ga., Aug. 11.—The
strangest death on record in this part of
Georgia—if not in the entire south—has
just occurred here.
A few days ago, several people who
bad gathered in the store of J. W. OlifE
& Co., began to discuss the strength of
the members of the party. It was finally
dicided to settle the question by practi
cal test and they began raising bags of
shot in their hands.
Allen Hagins, a prominent farmer,
living near here, was one" of the party
and he took part in the tests with alac
rity. He put up two or three hags of
shot over his head with apparent, ease
when all at once he cried out, "Oh, I’ve
broken my hack!” Hagins was taken at
once to the home of a physician near by
and everything possible was done for
him, but he died the next morning. He
had in fact broken his ba^k.
