The second battle of ballots was

Edgefield Interested in Young
Mr. Walter McDonald, a promi
nent young lawyer of Augusta who
married Miss Josephine Woodson,
the eldest daughter of Mrs. Agatha
Woodson, was a candidate for the
legislature from Richmond county
and headed the ticket, notwith
standing the fact that he had nine
opponents. In addition to this great
victory being unmistakable evidence
of his universal popularit}*, it like
wise shows that the people of Au
gusta and Richmond county appre
ciate his real worth and recognize
his ability to serve them in a legis
lative capacity. Mr. McDonald had
the misfortune during his boyhood
of losing the sight of both eyes.
