Rosen, ami Dr. T. M. Hall, who are at the head of the local Red Cross, are contemplating making a drive for membership to that organization at an uarrly date. The price of membership is one dol lar, and half is retained locally, while half is sent to the National Head quarters. If the member, however, should contribute ten dollars only fifty cents would be sent to head quarters and $9.50 kept at home. The Red Cross is found wherever there is suffering, and its assistance is needed. It is the greatest organ ization in the world to render aid in times of disaster. A few days back when the report got abroad that Milledgeville had been hard hit by the rains and flood, and was threaten ed with a water famine and suffering the Red Cross promptly wired Mr. Rogers if its assistance wus needed to let it be known at headquarters. Mr. Rogers is planning this year if the response for membership i* - large enough to take up the local charity so that promiscuous begging can be stopped, our citizens will do well to remember that this may be the way of solving this problem here. The Union Recorder will at a later date carry full injormntibn from Mr. Rogers and Dr. Hall about the plan.

Califf** condition has improv- according to reports received from the City Hospital, where he has been last Friday when he became the victim of an attack made by Sani Fulford. Wheeler county life termer of the most desperate crimn- als at the State Prison. Fulford 1m in the denth cell, heavily shackled and in stripes, under punish- for the assault, being isolated from the rest of the prisoner.*? and given the severity of the penal code. Fulford refused to report to the field Friday morning after Dr. John Mobley had marked him able for duty nnd declared be was shaming sick- new. Capt. J. M. Burke ordered him to the death cell for punishment for his refuseing to go into the field for work. With Mr. Califf, the yard man and guard. Cnpt. Burke took Fulford in charge and carried him down to the death cell. When the two men opened the s*eel door of the cell Ful ford turned upon them with a knife. Califf being the nearer of the two became the victim of his wild slashes. When the guard fell from the wounds.the desperado turned upon the aged warden who stepped back nnd slammed the heavy steel door on him for protection. Superintendent B. H. Dunnaway, who was enroute to the priyort from his home at the time cutting took place rushed to the scene and with other guard* disarmed Fulford and placed him in th<^ stocks for an hour’s punishment and ordered him to the death cell for an indefinite time. Fulford is serving a life term for the murder of a Wheeler county po liceman, having shot the officer down in the depot of Alamo, Georgia, with out provirntion or cause, reports show. He was sentenced twice to the death penalty for his crime, but on a chnnge of venue h-* was given life. He escaped from a Decatur county gang and was free for about a year when he w.as recaptured and returned to Milledgeville. Judge Dunnnway stated that Ful ford was one of the worst men in t u prison and thut they had always kept him under close watch. He probably slipped the knife from the dining hall at breakfast time .and the attack which was intended for Capt Burke was premeditated. Fulford will be kept in solitary confinement for an indefinite period. Mr. Califf who* condition hns been grave for several duys is showing im provement and it is believed he will recover. However all danger has not passed and grave concern i« felt about his condition. JL MUMlitt Messrs J. T.
