LITTLE ITEMS OF STATE INTEREST

Millen.-- John M. Edenfield, who filled the place of Rev. R. L. Bolton, in the pulpit of the local Baptist church, dropped dead while conducting the service. He was one of the most prominent men of this section of the state.

Columbus.--As the result of an energetic collecting campaign the city of Columbus took in $63,000 in tax money in the month just closed.

Atlanta.--All Georgia congratulates Miss Marguerite Durrett of Cordele on being awarded the Alice Bristol scholarship of the Bristol school in Washington, D.C.  This scholarship, which is from one of the foremost schools in our nation's capital, is given each year through the national D. A. R. and is a splendid prize, being valued at $1,000.

Lyerly.--Lem Harris, indicted by the Walker county grand jury on a charge of arson, was found guilty, and sentenced to eight years in the chain gang.

Fitzgerald.--Judge Curtis M. Wise died at his home in this city.  Judge Wise came from Indiana in 1895 as secretary of the Old Soldier colony.  He was later city clerk and since the organization of Ben Hill county its only ordinary.  He was an Odd Fellow, Shriner, a Knight Templar and member of other secret orders.

Atlanta.--The new Hapeville public school was totally destroyed by a fire which is supposed to have been of incendiary origin.  The building, which was brick and cost $12,000, was insured for $5,000.

Atlanta.--After an exciting chase from a speeding passenger train that led for eleven miles through the country, and wound up in the public square of Social Circle, Deputy Marshal E. V. Lasseter of municipal court, recaptured J. C. Thomas, the alleged check passer, who was being brought from Augusta to answer trial in Atlanta.  Handcuffed, Thomas had jumped from the running train.  Lasseter pursued for eleven miles, but lost the fugitive.  Later, returning to Social Circle, he encountered Thomas, minus the handcuffs, and rearrested him and returned to Atlanta.

Atlanta.--A trainload of mules from Atlanta left for New Orleans to be shipped to Europe for use by the allies.  The shipment was valued at approximately $100,000.  It is the second consignment from the Atlanta market within the last thirty days.

Columbus.--Illustrating the return of normal conditions in business circles and the confidence in the new trading season now in the beginning, a Columbus mercantile house has placed an order with a local cotton mill for $60,000 of its products.

Cleveland.--The local school district officials have sold and delivered to R. N. Berrien, Jr. of Atlanta, the $10,000 of school building 5 per cent bonds recently authorized and are formulating plans for the erection of a modern school building to meet the needs of the rapidly growing school district of which Cleveland is the center.

Crawfordville.--At an election held for local taxation for schools of Taliaferro county there were only 301 votes cast.  Of these 185 were in favor of local school tax and 116 against the tax for schools, which, of course, means that local taxation for the county lost, two-thirds of those voting being required to carry the election for the local tax.

Cordele.--Two entire train loads of beef cattle, 48 car loads from Florida points, were handled over the Georgia, Southern and Florida railway, and given to the Seaboard railway in the local yards. The cattle were being shipped to Kansas City, Mo., there to be fattened for beef purposes.  There were about 1,440 head of cattle on both trains, representing approximately $21,600 at a reasonable estimate.

Atlanta.--The declaration has been made here by Carl Lehman of Boston, field secretary of the Christian Endeavor Union, that he has verbal assurance from President Wilson that the president will attend the 1916 convention of the organization to be held in Atlanta and will deliver an address.

Rome.--The city of Lindale, with more than three thousand inhabitants, claims to be the healthiest town in the state of Georgia.  There has not been a death in Lindale for more than five weeks.  The last death at Lindale was on July 26, when A. D. Jenkins, aged 83 years, passed away.

------------

Americus.--A largely attended meeting of representative farmers of Sumter was held here in the interest of tobacco culture.  Addresses from successful growers in south Georgia, Virginia and South Carolina and from representatives of the agricultural departments of the Central and Seaboard railways were features of the meetings.  Similar meetings have been held in other communities of Sumter county and pledges secured for the planting of nearly seven hundred acres in tobacco next year.
